The family of a cheeky chappy are celebrating after he was crowned winner of our Cute Kids competition.
Stunning Stanley Garwood, who turns one-year-old on April 22, beat hundreds of rivals to take the top-spot in this year’s event.
Stanley’s twinkling eyes and too-cute tongue-out photo clearly bowled over our readers, who voted in force for the blue-eyed boy.
Mum Tracy Garwood, 34, said: “Every parent thinks their child is the cutest kid, but it was a genuine surprise to the whole family when Stanley won.
“It’s a real honour, we are so proud of him. We’ve saved all the newspaper clippings and photographs to put in his baby book as well.”
Dad Steven Garwood, 46, said: “He’s a really well behaved baby, but a real cheeky chappy at times.”
Adorable Stanley lives in Wagstaff Lane, Jacksdale, with mum and dad, as well as sister Shannon, 12, and brother Jonathan, 16.
Tracy said: “His brother and sister are really proud of him too, especially Shannon, as one of her friend’s siblings was also in the competition.”
Tracy added that, while there are no plans afoot to enter Stanley into any more competitions, she wouldn’t rule it out in the future.
“It’s been a really great experience,” said Tracy.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to everybody that voted for Stanley – you votes have really touched the whole family.”
