Proud parents Rebecca and James Maude decided to enter Phoebe, their only child, because of her “happy, bubbly nature”.
Mum Rebecca, 24, said they planned to donate some of the £300 cash prize to Darent Valley Hospital, where their daughter was born last August.
She said: “I had a normal birth, but the staff were so lovely that I want to give something back. I was a premature baby and I know that every little donation helps.”
Rebecca and ambulance driver James, 25, who live in Havelock Road, Gravesend, will also be spending some of the money on a first birthday party for Phoebe.
Frida Gabriela Abasolo-Munnery was one runner-up. Unfortunately, the family were unavailable for interview.
Brady-Martin Quinn-Payne is set to get a new wardrobe with his prize money after clinching the other runner-up spot.
Mum Marie, 30, said: “He’s growing like wildfire. He’s six months and already wearing clothes for a nine-month-old.”
Marie and partner Joe, 23, a car dealer, who have a daughter Shayla, seven, decided to “give the competition a go” on a recommendation from a friend.
Marie, of St Gregory’s Crescent, Gravesend, said: “My daughter is always entering dancing competitions, so we thought why not?”
Frida and Brady-Martin win £100 each.
