THESE adorable tots are officially the cutest in the town having been crowned winners of The Star’s Bonny Babies competition.

Fifteen-month-old Nicola Page and Reuben Brown, seven months old, gained the most votes to win the popular annual contest.

Proud mum Stacey Page, 19, of Montgomery Road, Ipswich told The Star this is the second year her little cherub has won.

“Two years in a row, I can’t believe it,” she said.

“We obviously think Nicole is gorgeous, we entered her again this year just to see if she would win again, and she did.

“We are very, very proud. I just jumped up clapping when I found out.

“It is really special to win twice but I think we will give it a miss next year.”

And Reuben’s mum, Charmian Taylor, 22, of Daffodil Close, Ipswich added: “Every parent will know, when your child is born you think they are the most gorgeous baby you have ever seen.

“It is so lovely to know that other people agree with us.

“Reuben is such a little character, he is crawling about, pulling himself up on things and getting up to all sorts.

“We are so proud of him.”
