COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - It's official! We have America's cutest baby right here in the valley.

Meet Little Ryland Cervantes. The 5-month-old was just named a winner in her category in WeTV's Cutest Kids Contest.

Her mom, Jessica and her dad, Specialist Thomas Cervantes, entered these pictures of her into the contest, not expecting to win anything.

"There were lots of cute babies. I  just thought it was going to be a "for fun" thing. I always think my baby's the cutest. But with 8,000 people, it was so exciting," said Mrs. Cervantes.

Ryland won a $2,500 scholarship for college, while her parents won $200.

How did she win?  Was it those lovely eyes?

" She doesn't cry for anything, unless she's hungry, or tired. She smiles each time she wakes up, and looks at you with those big ole eyes," said Mrs Cervantes.
