Just like when Tori Roloff was pregnant with her now 2-year-old son Jackson, she is fielding the question, “Is she a little person?”
Tori and her husband, Zach Roloff, announced they were expecting their second child together, a baby girl, on May 13.
On July 10, the soon-to-be mom of two took to Instagram to answer the question many of her fans have been asking her — does their unborn child have dwarfism.
After sharing a photo comparing one of Jackson’s sonograms to her unborn daughter’s sonogram, Tori said:
“So everyone keeps asking after seeing the ultrasound of baby girl if she a little person or of average height and we don’t know. And we won’t know until she’s born.”
Tori continued to explain that she and Zach made the decision to forego genetic testing.
“You can find out through an amniotic draw if you’re having a dwarf or not, but Zach and I opted out of that just because we don’t care either way and we just don’t want a lot of risk involved with it.
We love her and we can’t wait to meet her.”
Tori later added that from her experience with Jackson, doctors do track dwarfism from 24 weeks to 32 weeks, which is when they found out that Jackson was a little person.
However, “it’s never a diagnosis until they are born,” Tori said.
In May, Tori wrote that she often forgets her son has dwarfism:
I often forget that my son is any different than yours. I forget that he has shorter legs, because he can get around and run just like any other 2-year-old. I forget he has short arms, because he can still reach everything around the house (even the stuff we don’t want him to). I forget that he’s different because he’s so capable and I see nothing other than my mister mister.
Tori, Zach, and Jackson are expecting the arrival of the baby girl in November.
