Last week, Little People, Big World stars Zach and Tori Roloff welcomed their first child. As the happy couple basks in the glow of new parenthood, their fans are excited about to see more social media updates featuring the baby boy. And because the couple's TLC show originally aired more than a decade ago, the whole situation is starting to feel a little nostalgic, too. In celebrating Jackson Kyle Roloff's arrival, fans may even want to relive the family's origin story, from how Zach Roloff met his wife, Tori Roloff, to their beautiful wedding to this latest stage of their happily ever after.
Jackson entered the world just in time for Mother's Day Friday. "Baby and mother are doing great and Jackson is already mastered holding daddy's fingers and snuggling with mom!" Zach said at the time, according to People magazine. "He is adorable and Tori and I are loving being parents."
The two clearly love being together, as well. They were together for three years before Zach asked her to marry him; Upon getting engaged, they even came up with the cutest wedding hashtag in the history of wedding hashtags: "#StoryOfZachAndTori." Exactly how they met is unclear, according to the celebrity gossip site Wetpaint, but we know from an episode of Little People, Big World that Zach initially liked Tori because of their shared interest in soccer and the fact that they both played in a co-ed soccer league.
However they got together, it could not be more obvious that they are so, so happy they did. In publicly announcing the engagement on Instagram back in 2014, Tori wrote that her life had changed for the better when she met Zach, her "best friend":
You are the one with whom I choose to spend my life. 3 years ago today this man walked into my life and changed it for good. Last night he got down on one knee and asked me the most important question of a relationship. And of course I said yes. I can not wait to spend my life with my best friend. #storyofzachandtori #imgettingmarried"
In July 2015, they wed in a gorgeous ceremony on the Roloff family farm in Oregon, according to ABC News — an event that aired as a two-hour TLC special the next month.
The couple has not yet revealed whether their son has a form of dwarfism, as Zach does, although it was a possibility they discussed on the show recently. Zach was ambivalent about the prospect that his son would share his dwarfism:
I'm not going to say, "Oh yeah, man, I wish my kid had dwarfism. All those struggles he's gonna go through? Heck yeah! Can't wait." I'm not going to say that. But I'm also not going to say I really hope [he's] an average height [kid]. Average height kids have issues, too.
But it was Tori who summed up the situation best: "Whatever pops out, we're gonna love it." And it definitely seems as though they are doing just that.
