Baby Junior is a model child

HIS cheeky smile and playful nature have led Suffolk tot Junior Potts into his first modelling job – becoming the face of a baby food range.

Adorable Junior Potts can now be seen on organic baby pasta sauces across the country, after being chosen by representatives from Annabel Karmel.

Junior – who lives with his mother Teresa, in Seaman Avenue, Saxmundham – was hand-picked by representatives of the baby food company to appear on the packaging of the new range.

Proud mother Teresa sent a photograph to the company in November 2009 after hearing they were in search of a baby model.

She told the East Anglian Daily Times that she was so proud of her “cheeky” son, who is one.

“I approached Annabel Karmel myself after I found out they were looking for a baby with a cheeky little face. They met him and chose him, I was so happy. I’m so proud of him, I couldn’t be any prouder.”

The youngster is now the face of Annabel Karmel’s Make it Easy organic tomato, sweet potato and cheese sauce, which is currently sold in Morrisons superstores across the UK.

The 23-year-old mother later said that her son had always loved the camera and had begun posing from an early age.

She said: “He has always reacted when a camera comes out, he loves it.

“He can’t help but smile and play for the camera – I think it is something he really enjoys because he’s always striking a pose for me.”

The mother-of-one said that all the money Junior was given for the shoot would be put into a fund for his future.
