Plan for the future. Ahead of their third child’s birth, ZachAnd Tori Roloff wonder if their baby boy will have dwarfism — and panic over the thought of parenting three toddlers at once.
In Us Weekly’sExclusive clip from the Tuesday June 28 episode of season 23 Little People, Big World, Zach, 32, and Tori, 31, attempt to put together baby Josiah’s room ahead of his arrival, but son Jackson, 5, and daughter Lilah, 2, make it feel impossible.
“One of the kids needs to transition out of this, like, toddler phase. I don’t know, three kids under five is going to be, oof,” Zach says during a confessional interview while Tori agrees. “Being pregnant and making a bed is, like, the most annoying thing.”
In the episode, which was filmed prior to Josiah’s birth in May, the pair can be seen trying to be productive but struggling as the tantrums begin to erupt.
“Jackson is at an age where I think he loves to help, but he’s just not helpful,” Zach explains while Lilah breaks into tears. “We don’t want to discourage them so we say, ‘Fine, you can help,’ but sometimes, it’s just straight up chaos.”
As they work, the TLC personalities discuss Tori’s upcoming doctor’s appointment. “If it’s all measuring on track, can we say it’s probably appetite?” Zack asks, to which Tori replies, “Maybe.”
In a second confessional, the Oregon native reveals that the couple aren’t sure if the new baby will have dwarfism. “I have an ultrasound once a month because they’re tracking it. The baby grows a little more and a little more, and it just becomes more obvious the direction they’re trending in,” she explains to the camera.
The couple, who had their son last month, shared their intimate moments with UseJosiah was born with achondroplasia and was diagnosed in June.
It’s a condition the Roloff family has worked hard to normalize, since Zach, his childrenAnd his parents, Amy and Matt Roloff, also share the diagnosis.
“It’s so normal to us,” Tori told Us. “We have so many resources, and there’s a lot of parents out there who don’t have the same resources and … don’t have the same confidence in everything that Zach and I do.”
The parents also said that they will continue to use the platform to support those with dwarfism.
“We will definitely be advocates for people with dwarfism because of our kids,” Zach said at the time. “Forever,” Tori added.
