You know you’ve made it when you become a clue on ‘Jeopardy!’

'Gerber Baby' Lucas’ smiling photo was featured as clue on Monday’s episode of the hit game show.  The Dalton baby was named the 2018 Gerber Spokesbaby and was the first child with Down syndrome to be named a Gerber baby since the contest started over 90 years ago.
