2-Year-Old With Down Syndrome Has Smile So “Cheeky” She Got TWO Modeling Contracts!

This adorable little cutie from the United Kingdom is Connie-Rose Seabourne. She is a lively, beautiful blonde two-year-old who is diagnosed with Down syndrome.  And she is a model.


Connie-Rose was born two months premature to her parents, Julie and Peter, but it wasn’t until she was just two weeks old that the doctors diagnosed her with Down syndrome.

But in no way does her disability define her. In fact, the thing she is known for most by family and friends is her “cheeky” smile.  It’s pretty darn adorable.

“We have friends whose children have been diagnosed with Down syndrome and have had nothing but positive experiences of children with the diagnosis. It’s just another little baby who needs to be loved.â€

The Seabournes also share this perspective in a more active way as they visit different families in the same position to give them strength.

“Some parents struggle with the idea of Down’s Syndrome initially and think that life isn’t going to be the same again. I try to explain just how much support there is out there for them…. The inclusiveness and equality that my family has experienced has been amazing. It’s absolutely fantastic that Connie-Rose will be in the public eye – it’s just so positive.â€
