'Live With Regis and Kelly's' Beautiful Baby Search Is On!

Grand Prize-Winning Baby Will Appear on Cover of Parents Magazine

NEW YORK, Jan. 17 -- Calling all pint-sized cover girls and boys! "Live With Regis and Kelly" is looking for adorable babies -- those unforgettable faces, those endearing expressions, those darling one-of-a-kind features -- to enter "Live's Beautiful Baby Search 2005." Five finalists will be featured on "Live" and the winner will be showcased as the cover cutie on a future issue of Parents magazine.

Beginning January 17, 2005, parents of beautiful babies between the ages of 6 months and 48 months will be able to enter their children in the contest by submitting a non-professional photo of their little one online at http://www.liveregisandkelly.com, where full details and contest rules are available. Entries also can be mailed to LIVE'S BEAUTIFUL BABIES, Ansonia Station -- P.O. Box 234054, New York, NY 10023-9543.

"Live" producers and Parents editors will narrow down the competition to 10 finalists. Voting then will be turned over to "Live's" viewing audience, who will vote online to determine the five finalists. The final five beautiful babies will travel to New York to appear on "Live With Regis and Kelly" the week of February 21, 2005, and take part in a professional photo shoot hosted by Parents. Hosts Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will announce the picture-perfect winner on February 25, and he or she will appear as the cover baby on a future issue of Parents.

Hundreds of thousands of parents across the country entered their children in the first-ever "Live With Regis and Kelly Beautiful Baby Search" in 2003. More than 300,000 readers and viewers voted online, and because editors and producers had such a hard time deciding on one final winner, they chose two! Cambell Conard, from Leicester, North Carolina and Meiko Pearson, from Lee's Summit, Missouri each won a spot on the cover of Parents.

Cambell's mom Lynette, a stay-at-home mom, said she entered her two-year-old son in the contest because people had been telling her he was model material. "Everyone who sees him says we should try to get him into magazines, so we decided to chance it," she said. When Cambell won, she was shocked. "It was a very surreal moment, and it didn't sink in at first," she said.

Meiko's mom Joi, a veterinarian, had similar thoughts when her one-year-old daughter was chosen as a winner. "I was surprised," she said. "Up until the end, I told everyone that we didn't have to win -- it was good enough for me that we had made it that far." She had entered the contest on a whim. "I thought 'What the heck?'" she recalled. "It was so easy to enter."

Parents, a Gruner + Jahr USA publication, has been America's #1 family magazine for over 75 years. Since its inception, it has been a trusted source by every generation of parents. Currently, the magazine is a powerful community of 14 million readers devoted to supporting the efforts of parents, educators and other citizens who strive to make the world a better place for our children.

"Live with Regis and Kelly" is executive produced by Michael Gelman, and has been distributed in national syndication by Buena Vista Television since 1988. Produced by WABC-TV in New York, "Live with Regis and Kelly" airs in more than 200 markets across the country.
