Jennifer Arnold’s 'Little Couple' Fans Claim Her Son William Looks More Mature in a New Photo
Jennifer Arnold, the star of TLC's "The Little Couple," recently shared a photo of her son Will and fans couldn't help but notice how grown-up the little boy appears to be.
The picture was taken during a trip that Arnold and her husband, Bill Kleine, along with their children, Will and Zoey, made to India, where they visited the incredible Taj Mahal.
In the snap, the 9-year-old, who was diagnosed with dwarfism, can be seen posing in front of the mausoleum, one of the seven wonders of the world, and fans claimed that he looks so mature.
According to them, Will's baby face is gone, which might have made Arnold sad because, like any mother, she would probably like to keep her son just the way he was.
Originally born in China, Will – whose Chinese name was Feng Ri Jin – was Arnold and Klein's first child and the one who showed them the joys of being a parent.
ARNOLD AND KLEIN'S STRUGGLES
The couple's road to parenthood was not an easy one, as they were told by doctors that a pregnancy could be lethal to both mother and child due to her form of dwarfism.
So they looked for a surrogate and tried to have a biological child. Sadly, they experienced two miscarriages. Broken-hearted, they turn to international adoption website Rainbow Kids.
WELCOMING WILL TO THE FAMILY
The website helped children with special needs find responsible parents willing to adopt them. As soon as they saw Will's photo, they fell in love with him.
In 2013, Arnold and Klein traveled 11,000 miles to meet Will, who was abandoned at a hospital at birth. The child recognized them immediately from the photo album that they had sent him.
Arnold feared Will wouldn't connect with them but, as it turns out, she had nothing to worry about because during the meeting he called them "Mama" and "Baba," the Chinese word for "father."

Later that year, the couple also adopted Zoey, who, like her parents and brother, has dwarfism. Zoey was born in Delhi, India, which made their recent trip to the country so much more special.
