Wonderful – and surprising! – news to report.
The Little Couple’s Dr. Jen Arnold, 39, and Bill Klein, 38, introduced their 3-year-old son William on the Katie Couric show recently. And now they have more exciting news to report. After years of hoping to become parents and suffering through fertility issues, the couple are also adopting a 19-month-old girl from India they have named Zoey.
“We’re so delighted that Zoey will be joining our family and that William will have a little sister coming home very soon,” the reality TV couple said in a statement to PEOPLE.
While Zoey – who also has a form of dwarfism like her adoptive parents and brother Will – is officially their daughter, Jennifer and Bill are waiting on final approvals and dates to be put in place before bringing her home to Houston.
“We’ve dealt with prejudice and many challenges,” Jennifer said of her life experiences. “I feel very lucky and fortunate that I have the wonderful life I have.”
“A little girl came up to me in a store and said, ‘You are a little person,’ very matter-of-factly and I said, ‘Yes, I am, thank you very much,’” the doctor continued. “We have an opportunity to raise awareness and that’s wonderful.”
She added: “I wanted us to be parents before we were too old to enjoy being parents.”
Watch their TLC show, The Little Couple, Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET where they find out about Zoey for the first time.
