“Little Women: LA” star Terra Jolé two-stepped into the hearts of fans, first with her Lifetime reality show, and then with her wildly successful spot on season 23 of “Dancing With the Stars.”

In addition to dominating the reality TV world, Jolé has taken the time to start a family. The 37-year-old, who’s married to actor Joe Gnoffo, welcomed daughter Penny into the world just two years ago.

And it looks like the little one has some moves of her own.

Earlier this month, Jolé shared a DIY video teaching other mothers how to make a walker that caters to a child with dwarfism.

What she didn’t expect was for her bundle of joy to crawl up and take her first steps.

Jolé opened up about the joyous milestone to People magazine earlier this week:

“I’ve learned to throw all expectations out the window with our children. We are all made differently, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.”

The mother of two explained that in the past, Penny had difficulty with basic motor skills such as sitting, standing, and crawling.

To Jolé, seeing her daughter walk was invaluable:

“Seeing Penny take her first steps was the most unexpected victory I’ve ever experienced, and [we’re] beyond overjoyed to have captured it on film.”

Jolé seems overcome with emotion in the video, joyful that the makeshift walker she created helped her daughter achieve what some may have believed unachievable. People reported that the crafty mom pieced together the device with PVC pipes, glue, rubber stoppers, and gliders.

She added:

“The biggest problem that we have had [is that all] the adaptions for little people walkers do not fit my daughter, do not fit most little people at her age, so I want to create a little person walker myself. This is making me the happiest mom ever because this is exactly what I was hoping that she would want to do instead of me forcing her to do it. I wish I built this a year ago.”

Penny was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism that her mother also has.
