Happy and healthy! Zach Roloff and Tori Roloff’s 2-year-old son, Jackson, is going to become a big brother in November, and the Little People, Big World stars told Us Weekly exclusively about his health.
“Thank the Lord, Jackson hasn’t really had any significant [health struggles],” Zach, 29, told Us earlier this month. “He’s had a couple ear infections, which can be common with dwarfism. There’s a lot of potentials, but for now it’s too early to tell. We actually have the same pediatrician for him that was my pediatrician growing up, so that’s been really nice because he’s familiar with dwarfism and those things. In Portland, [it’s] a little harder to find a pediatrician that has that experience with dwarfism.”
The reality star added: “We have a sleep study coming up this next month for him that you’re supposed to get, apparently, that’s the standard if your kid has dwarfism, but we don’t foresee any problems. That’s coming up in a couple weeks.”
His wife, 28, went on to say, “We’ve been really blessed with his health for sure.”
Us broke the news on Monday, May 13, that the pair have another little one on the way. “We are so excited to announce that Jackson is going to be a big brother!” the TLC personalities told Us exclusively at the time. “We can not wait to meet our sweet baby girl.” She is due in November.
Little People, Big World airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. E.T. on TLC.
