He’s not having it! Tori Roloff gave birth to baby No. 2 on the latest episode of Little People, Big World, which aired on Tuesday, May 19, and fans got to see Jackson meet his little sister for the first time. Unfortunately, Baby J wanted absolutely nothing to do with Lilah, making for a rocky start to their relationship.
“Jackson meeting Lilah did not go the way we planned whatsoever,” the 29-year-old mama revealed on the episode. “It was really hard on me just because he walked in and he just wanted nothing to do with it. He didn’t want to see his sister, and that was hard.”
Even after Lilah came home from the hospital, the 3-year-old struggled to embrace her. “He’s still very like, ‘I don’t want to touch her. I don’t want her,’” Tori explained. “He’ll bring her stuff, but he doesn’t want to hold her, doesn’t want to touch her.”
Since Tori’s daughter’s arrival, the LPBW star has been open with fans on social media about Jackson’s progress with his little sister. A month after her arrival in December 2019, the TLC star shared a family selfie and revealed that Baby J has been “standoffish” toward his sister.
“Tis the season for matching jammies, cozy fires and the smell of Christmas!” Tori wrote. “Even if it took us like 20 times to get this photo (on a self-timer). My Christmas has already been made by my family. Especially the fact that Jackson touched his sister in this photo (he’s been a little standoffish and only wants to admire her from afar.)”
Luckily, these days Jackson seems to be stepping into his role of big brother a little less timidly and enjoys cuddling with his baby sis. We’re glad he was able to get past his initial fears!
