A seven-year-old girl who won The Herald’s baby of the Year competition back in 2007 has gone on to bigger things.

Sofie, who lives in Langney with her parents and two brothers, recently starred in Michael Buble’s videos promoting his Christmas album. The videos have more than 30,000 hits on You Tube and appear on pop star’s Facebook page.

Sofie, who attends Pevensey and Westham School, has now just become the star of Aqua Beads Disney Princess Charms and has appeared on the toy box and in advertisements for the new toy range.

Proud mum Jacqui Smith said, “The Herald started it all in 2007, when she was about two. She won the Baby of the Year and then people started to say she was really pretty and we should get her in to modelling. We signed up with a couple of agencies but didn’t hear anything for about a year, but then the auditions started coming in. Every time someone phones I ask if she wants to do it and she is always really excited. She poses for the camera – she is a natural.”
