2-Year-Old Girl With Down Syndrome Wins Modeling Contract Thanks To Her Cheeky Smile

Being born with Down syndrome hasn’t prevented two years old Connie-Rose Seabourne from living a normal life – in fact it could be argued she has a better job than most! This can be thanked to her recent gig as a child model, which has seen her gain two separate contracts. Friends and family had always mentioned how gorgeous her cheeky smile was and that her mother Julie should think about taking her to a modelling agency. It turned out to be a great decision, as Connie-Rose now has herself two contracts and is making waves in the toddler modelling world. Her disability was never an issue with agencies, as Julie explains, “When I spoke to the agencies about her Down’s syndrome diagnosis, no one even batted an eyelid,”  “She absolutely loved it. She follows direction very well and she has so much fun in front of the cameras.” After being born a few months premature, it took a few weeks for her to actually be diagnosed with the condition. “We have friends whose children have been diagnosed with Down’s syndrome and have had nothing but positive experiences of children with the diagnosis. It’s just another little baby who needs to be loved.”

“As soon as it gets too much for her or she doesn’t like it, we’ll stop. The first sign that she’s not enjoying it, we’ll stop”

“I was assessed as being at higher risk of having a baby with Down’s 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”
