'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?"
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.
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.
Achondroplasia occurs in one per 26,000 to 40,000 births, according to the nonprofit Little People of America.
