She’s here! Little Women: L.A. stars Terra Jolé and Joe Gnoffo have welcomed their first child together, a rep for the show confirms to Us Weekly.
Jolé and Gnoffo, whose relationship has been documented on the Lifetime show since season 1, welcomed a baby girl named Penelope Charlevoix Gnoffo on Monday, March 16. Penelope weighed in at 6 lbs. and 2 oz.
"I definitely was shocked when I found out I was pregnant," the reality star told Entertainment Tonight in January. “[The baby] is only 25 percent average height percentage, and then 75 percent some form, either Joe's or mine or a mixture of the both of us, when it comes to both of our dwarfisms," Jolé explained. "While it lives a perfectly normal life in the womb, it's the lungs — they don't develop fully — so they would die at birth or within a few hours of birth,” she added, explaining her fears prior to Penelope’s birth. “To me that would be like my all-time biggest fear. It has been suggested maybe there are possibilities for extreme health risks with Joe and I and that's something to think about, but currently the child is living healthy in the womb. Why think negative when I'm this far along?"
The new mom, along with her healthy baby girl and Gnoffo, will document their life together on Little Women spin-off Little Women: Terra’s Little Family.
