Little People, Big World's Zach Roloff, 23, and his wife Tori became first time parents on May 12 with the birth of their son, Jackson. Earlier this week the couple shared additional photos on social media with fans, and gushed all about the excitement of becoming mom and dad. Photos of Zach and Tori Roloff's new baby are totally adorable, and it's clear the couple couldn't be more excited about their family's new addition.
Since the show debuted on TLC in 2006, fans have gotten to know the Roloff's — parents Matt and Amy, as well as Zach and his siblings. Zach and his parents have a type of dwarfism. His siblings — including his twin brother, Jeremy — are of average height. Zach's wife Tori is also average-height. The couple were married in 2015 and announced they were expecting their first child together last November. Shortly after, they threw a party for friends and family to announce they were having a boy. Prior to their son's birth, Zach and Tori spoke about the possibility that the baby would have the same kind of dwarfism that Zach after ultrasounds seemed to indicate the baby's limbs were measuring shorter than average. In an emotional episode of the show, Zach said: “What am I going to say? ‘Oh yeah, I want a dwarf baby!’ [Or] ‘I can’t wait for that kid to be bullied’?” according to InTouch.
On Sunday May 14, two days after his birth, Zach and Tori officially announced the birth of their son, Jackson, on Instagram:
Jackson Kyle Roloff Born May 12th at 8:00am 9 LBS 1 OZ 20 1/2 inches long Mom and Dad are so in love with you already 💙👶🏻#ZandTpartyofthree
Later in the week, Tori posted another photo with her baby boy with the caption:
My heart is so unbearably full. I've only spent 4 days with this little guy and I have fallen In love completely with him. This is what I was meant to do. Mommy loves you, Jackson! 💙 #BabyJK#zandtpartyofthree
The new parents haven't revealed yet if their son has dwarfism, but TLC said in an exclusive on their website that Zach reported everyone is doing great: "Jackson has already mastered holding daddy's fingers and snuggling with mom! He is adorable and Tori and I are loving being parents."
Jackson is the first grandchild for Zach's parents, Matt and Amy — but they'll soon become grandparents again: their son Jeremy and daughter-in-law Audrey are expecting a baby girl.
