'Little People, Big World' Fans Excited to See Tori & Zach Roloff's 2nd Child's Birth on Show
Fans of "Little People, Big World" couldn't stop themselves from reacting to the news of Zach and Tori Roloff's baby special.
When TLC announced via Twitter that they would be showing the birth special for Zach and Tori Roloff's new baby, "Little People, Big World" fans couldn't keep calm.
Tori disclosed that even though she had experience raising a child with dwarfism, raising a girl with the same issue felt like "uncharted territory."
As soon as the show was over, the Twitter user returned to states that she was "so mad" because she felt like she jinxed the baby's arrival.
It didn't take long before other viewers came to share their opinion too with one person asking, "I thought it was a baby special?"

This last weekend has made me so thankful for this man. He’s been in Colombia working on some really cool soccer stuff! I’m so proud of him and what he does within the dwarf community (here and overseas). We sure have missed him though. You never know until you have to do it alone- and being pregnant and hanging with a toddler alone for three days is no easy task! Thank your spouses today if you are so blessed. And if you’re a single mom or dad- YOU ARE A SUPER HUMAN! We love you Dada! Now come home! #storyofzachandtori
Fans' reaction to the show comes months after USA Today reported that Zach and Tori welcomed their second daughter Lilah Ray. The site's report came after Tori shared the news herself with a picture of the newborn rocking a yellow headband on Instagram.
It was later revealed that during their 20-week anatomy scan that the couple found out that their baby girl's measurements were consistent with achondroplasia – which is the genetic disorder that Zach and their son, Jackson, have.
The situation was more different for Tori who disclosed that even though she had experience raising a child with dwarfism, raising a girl with the same issue felt like "uncharted territory."
That slight hiccup has, however, done nothing to dim the joy of the Roloff family. In fact, Good Housekeeping divulged that Tori's sister-in-law, Audrey posted a series of Instagram Stories documenting the first time she met Lilah.

My word for 2019. ABIDE. If you know me, or anything about 8’s (“The challenger”) on the Enneagram, you’ll know that doing things half way is not my spiritual gift😅 When I set my mind on something, I’m determined and resilient. I think everything is urgent, so I’ve become a professional multi-tasker and a workaholic🙈 I’m a go-getter with a whole lot of passion and a heck of a lot of perseverance, but throughout my life, the Lord is constantly teaching me the importance of rest, slowing down, and creating margin. I need to reminded through a mega phone every day that God cares more about what he’s doing in me than what he’s doing through me.📢 As I was journaling and praying about what my word for 2019 should be, I kept circling back to three words. Testify, present, and abide. This year I want to be a testimony to the living God in all I do and say. This year, I want to focus more on being present than being productive. And this year, I want to be more concerned with abiding than accomplishing. i want to spend more time in the word of God that the world of Instagram. I was reading 1 John this morning and praying for clarity on which word to claim for this year and the word abide kept coming up over and over. Then it hit me. A whisper from the Lord. “Audrey... you can’t testify well, and you won’t be fully present, if you’re not abiding in me.” Then I remembered the scripture from John 15:4-5, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me....Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” So my word for 2019 is ABIDE. As Winne The Pooh says in the movie Christopher Robin, “They say nothing is impossible, but I don’t think that’s true, cause I do nothing alll the time.” Maybe you’re like me and need to be reminded to do nothing, more than you need to be reminded that nothing is impossible 😉 Maybe you need to be reminded to slow down, be still, embrace silence. Maybe you need to be reminded that if you abide in Him, he will abide in you. #alwaysmore #abidemore
As regards the issue of achondroplasia, Today reported that Dr. John Pappas claimed that there was a 50% chance of a child having the disorder if his/her parents already had it.
The doctor also added that some parents prefer to use IVF as it allowed them to only implant embryos that do not have achondroplasia.
