It’s not uncommon for a first-time mother to have fears ahead of the birth of her child. And no new mama knows that more than Tori Roloff, who found out at 34 weeks that her son, Jackson Kyle, would be born with achondroplasia — the same kind of dwarfism that his father, Zach, has.
In last night’s episode of Little People, Big World, we watched as the new parents welcomed “Baby J,” who was born on May 12 and Tori came face-to-face with her neuroses regarding his health ahead of her C-section.
In a confessional, she admitted, “If something is wrong with my child, it’s a scary thought.” Check out the video to get full details on what she said about her concerns regarding his health!
Tori, 26, was never shy about her concerns before they learned that Jackson had the same condition as his father; at one point during her pregnancy, she called it “scary,” and admitted that he was hard to think of your child as being “different.”
She added that they’d love “whatever pops out,” and Tori most certainly kept good on her promise! Ahead of last night’s episode, she shared a picture of the first time she held her son and wrote, “The first time you hold your baby...nothing like it in the world.”
Since welcoming Jackson, both mom and dad have made it clear that they are ready for anything life throws their — or Jackson’s — way.
“You have to encourage a dwarf child a little more because it will take them five steps to do what others can do in two,” Zach, 27, previously explained. “But I knew, dwarf or not, I was going to parent my child with the mentality that not everyone gets a trophy. You have to earn it.”
Baby J is so lucky to have two incredibly supportive and loving parents!
