Back in 1997, hundreds of thousands of hopeful moms and dads sent photos and home videos of their children to Oprah for "The Oprah Show's" first-ever Cutest Baby Contest. A panel of celebrity judges sorted through the submissions to choose the cutest of the bunch, giving away some sweet prizes in the process.

Now that nearly two decades have gone by, "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" followed up with some of the winners to see what they are up to now.
