In the latest season of Little People Big World, fans got to know that both of Zach and Tori’s kids need to have surgeries because of their health issues. This was very worrisome for the viewers as they already know what Zach went through in his teenage years. Amongst the Roloff kids, he was the only one who inherited dwarfism from his parents. Hence, he also faced some health issues due to that.
Well, both his kids, four-year-old Jackson and one-year-old Lilah, have the same type of dwarfism as their father, Zach, and grandma Amy. While both Amy and Zach had achondroplasia, whereas Matt Roloff had degenerative dwarfism called diastrophic dysplasia. Hence, the Roloff grandkids are also going through some medical issues due to their dwarfism. Here’s the current status of their health conditions.
Little People Big World: Jackson & Lilah Both Need Surgeries!
Zach and Tori recently talked about how both of their kids could need different surgeries. The TLC mom talked about how her one-year-old daughter has some problems with her vision. She previously mentioned that Lilah is getting cross-eyed. Hence, she might need surgery or a pair of glasses. On the other hand, her big-brother Jackson has some issues with his legs. Zach revealed that his legs have started to bow, which might cause trouble for him while walking. The LPBW dad reminded fans of how he had to undergo surgeries when he was younger.
In fact, Zach has two surgeries for his bowing legs. The first one was when he was 8 or 9 years old, while the second one was a little later, as it was also featured on the show. From growth plate and casts put on his legs to one of his legs getting pinned down, the surgeries were very harsh on the TV star. He even said that the procedures were pretty “brutal” for him and painful. Tori was pretty grossed out to listen to her husband’s painful experience and doesn’t want her child to go through it. However, she wants him to get better and have surgery, but not two of them like his father.
