Little people — big family!
The Roloff family — of Little People, Big World fame — just keeps on growing, as both Zach Roloff and his twin brother Jeremy are expecting babies with their wives this year!
While Jeremy and his wife, Audrey, will have to wait until September to meet their little girl, Zach and his wife, Tori, just became first-time parents when they welcomed their little boy, Jackson Kyle, who was born on May 12!
Since announcing their pregnancy, one of the most common questions is whether or not the baby will be a little person, as Zach is a little person (like his parents) while Tori is average-sized.
And for the first time, they’ve dished about their baby boy — who arrived weighing 9 pounds, 1 ounce and measuring in at 20.5 inches long — check out the video to see whether or not he’s a little person like his dad!
As fans of the show know, the then-parents-to-be had some concerns about their baby’s health when his limbs were measuring below average during a checkup.
“What am I going to say? ‘Oh yeah, I want a dwarf baby!’” he said in the emotional episode. “[Or] ‘I can’t wait for that kid to be bullied’?”
After having an ultrasound, Zach still was left concerned for his child after calling his mother and revealing, “We went to the doctor yesterday — it’s not for sure, but all the limbs are measuring below average.”

Spring break has officially come to a close tonight. It has made me so anxious for the moment our son arrives. I am so excited to hold him in my arms and this week we have spent so much time preparing for our little man. We still have tons to do and baby roloff still needs more time to cook but it doesn't keep me from being so excited. Hope everyone enjoyed their time off! ❤️🌷 #ZandTpartyofthree
Despite their concerns about their bun in who was then in the oven, there’s no denying that Tori and Zach have been thrilled to become first-time parents. Throughout Tori’s pregnancy, she’s been sharing pregnancy updates with her fans.
Earlier this month, when she was only 36 weeks along, she revealed that she started feeling contractions and she was already one centimeter dilated.
It’s clear that these two are going to be great parents — and the love they have for one another is truly special. In an Instagram post celebrating seven years together, Tori gushed, “Zachary, you make me smile every day and I love our conversations about life and our dreams together. You are definitely my better half and I pray every day that I can be a better wife to you.”

This week I feel as though my heart has been shattered and I've just been trying to pick up the pieces. I still have moments where I just can't understand why my best friend was taken from me but I know in the pit of my stomach God knows what he's doing. I am SO thankful for my husband being here each step of the way. I am also so thankful for our little guy, and I'm so thankful to pour my heart into him right now. I've been working hard on his room and although we don't have a car seat or a crib at least we have a painted wall. 😋 thank you all for your outpouring of love and support. I have read so many of your notes and I'm sorry I can't respond to them all! Sul will be dearly missed by far more than I could ever imagine, and he will always be the best big brother baby roloff could ever ask for. 💙
And even though Tori said that she doesn’t feel prepared “one iota” in a clip from this season, it seems like they already have their nursery set up for baby boy Roloff! The couple decorated their unborn son’s room in shades of gray with a mountain theme.
Zach and Tori painted one of the walls in the nursery with a mural of mountain tops and their son’s mobile consists of miniature wooden figures of vintage planes.
The theme is perfect, since Zach grew up with gorgeous mountain views on his family’s farm in Hillsboro, Oregon.
We are so glad their little boy is here!
