This 2-Year-Old Model With Down Syndrome Will Put A Smile On Your Face

Friends always told Julie Britton that her daughter, Connie-Rose, had a beautiful smile. So much so, that she decided to send a few snaps of the beaming 2-year-old to modeling scouts.

It's easy to see why: with big blue eyes and an infectious smile, Connie-Rose lights up for the camera. Despite being diagnosed with Down Syndrome at two weeks old, Connie-Rose, who lives in the U.K. with her parents, has already nabbed two modeling contracts.

"I was assessed as being at higher risk of having a baby with Down Syndrome when I was pregnant and could have had the diagnostic test to find out but I didn't want it because it just wasn't an issue," Julie told The Daily Mail.

After she sent off Connie-Rose's photos, Julie says the family received a response fairly quickly, and then went on to book test shoots.

"When I spoke to the agencies about her Down Syndrome diagnosis, no one even batted an eyelid," she added.

Connie-Rose is a natural in front of the camera, and Julie says she'll only continue to have her daughter model if it's something she enjoys.

For our sake, we sure hope she does. See even more cuteness in the video below.
