That's not it. We were treated with two doses of cuteness. In Gerber's Instagram Story, they left this message thanking everyone for supporting them.

11Alive' Liza Lucas spoke with the Warren's the day after the announcement. 

Lucas' mom Cortney said she entered him using Instagram.

"All it took is a simple upload and a hashtag and here we are," she said.

That was in the fall. By the winter, they found out that their baby boy was the winner. His dad Jason said he was shocked when they first learned that he was selected.

"I could not believe that this was actually happening to us," Jason said.

Since then, they said the entire process has been humbling. 

Jason said their goal this year is to show that there are no limits.

"The sky is the limit. That's on the the greatest things that we can do. We're not limited by anything. We're going to use this platform with the best that we can do to spread as much joy as we can over the next year."
