Meet the '09 Beautiful Baby Search Winner!
Talk about tough decisions... When Live with Regis and Kelly's Beautiful Baby Search gave you the chance to get your kid on our cover, more than 300,000 of you grabbed your cameras and sent in a shot of your pride and joy. Boy -- and girl -- did we have a hard time picking just ten semifinalists! Then Live's viewers selected five to be flown to New York City for a photo shoot and face time on TV. But there could be only one winner, and viewers chose Soraya.
More about Soraya Dennis:
Age: 11 months
Family: Dad Donald, a firefighter; mom Leyla, a cosmetic dentist; and big sister Yasmin, 3
Hometown: Irvine, CA
Thanks, Grandma! "My mom made us send in Soraya's photo," says Leyla. "She'll be saying 'I told you so' till Soraya's in college!"
Moving Right Along Days after the contest ended, Soraya began to walk!
America's Next Top Baby Model? "If they wanted to do a remake of ET starring Soraya, great!" Leyla says. "Otherwise, she's just enjoying being a baby."
