Little People, Big World stars Jeremy and Audrey Roloff recently discussed the chances their baby would have dwarfism, along with possible baby names. On Tuesday, TLC shared a video clip on their Facebook page that shows Jeremy and Audrey Roloff talking about what kind of names they would like for their baby. The short video clip also shows the Little People, Big World couple discussing the possibility of their baby being a little person. TLC shared on the Facebook post that Zach and Tori Roloff picked Jackson as the name for their son and asked what kind of name Jeremy and Audrey Roloff will want for their child.
All eyes are now on Jeremy, 27, and Audrey Roloff as Little People, Big World fans await the arrival of the couple’s first baby. Zach and Tori Roloff welcomed their first baby into the world last Friday. Since then, fans have been overjoyed to finally meet their son and are now closely following Jeremy and Audrey Roloff as they continue to prepare for the arrival of their daughter. Us Weekly exclusively shared back in February that Little People, Big World stars Jeremy and Audrey Roloff are expecting their first child together. The report went on to say that Audrey Roloff, a 25-year-old Barre dance and workout instructor, is due to deliver on September 1, less than four months after Tori Roloff, 26, delivered.

The newest season of Little People, Big World that’s currently underway on TLC is focusing mainly on the two pregnancies, as well as the recent divorce and dating worlds of patriarch Matt Roloff, 55, and matriarch Amy Roloff, 52. Tori Roloff gave birth after only two episodes into Season 17 of Little People, Big World, but the current season shows Zach and Tori Roloff, as well as Jeremy and Audrey Roloff, announce their pregnancies and prepare for the arrival of their first babies. TLC shared a bonus clip on May 11, the day before Zach and Tori’s baby boy was delivered, that shows the Little People, Big World couple brainstorming baby names. Jack was one possible boy name that Zach and Tori were considering and ultimately decided on by naming their son Jackson Kyle Roloff.
Jeremy and Audrey Roloff also discussed possible baby names in an exclusive clip of Little People, Big World that TLC shared on Tuesday afternoon, just before Season 17 Episode 3 aired at 9 p.m. ET that evening. Us Weekly talked about the video clip that shows Jeremy and Audrey Roloff having a sit-down talk at their home in Bend, Oregon, about naming their baby, where they plan to raise a family, and the chances of their daughter having dwarfism, like Matt, Amy, and Jeremy’s twin brother, Zach. No specific baby names were mentioned, but both Jeremy and Audrey Roloff agreed they want to choose a unique name for their daughter that’s “a little bit peculiar, but not weird.”

The Little People, Big World couple also discussed where they would like to settle down and raise a family. Jeremy and Audrey Roloff currently live over 160 miles away from the Roloff family farm that’s located in a suburb of Portland, Oregon. Audrey said she always thought they would move close to Roloff Farms, and Jeremy agreed that it would be nice for their children to grow up and go to school with Zach and Tori’s children. However, Jeremy also doesn’t like the fact that his recently divorced parents are currently dating other people; a “messy” situation that Jeremy said would be difficult to stay out of if they moved back to Portland to “grow some roots.”
Another common question that Jeremy and Audrey Roloff often get is whether their daughter will have dwarfism. It is not known whether Zach and Tori Roloff’s son has dwarfism, although Amy Roloff describes her grandson on Instagram as “perfectly perfect.” SpiritsWander, a blog all about “keeping up with the Roloffs,” shared just after Zach and Tori’s pregnancy announcement in November of 2016 that the couple’s baby would have a higher chance of having dwarfism than the other Roloff siblings. Zach carries a dominant achondroplasia dwarfism gene, which gives his children a 50 percent chance of also having achondroplasia dwarfism. However, according to Jeremy and Audrey Roloff, their doctor said that it’s “pretty much impossible” for them to have a baby with the type of diastrophic dysplasia dwarfism that Matt Roloff has.
Welp… there's no more sucking it in. Baby Roloff is finally making a humble appearance at week 15 ????????#15weekspregnant I still feel like I need a shirt that says, "I'm in the awkward pregnancy phase." Or, "I'm pregnant not just getting fat." Or, "Bump in process." Hmmm… you know, maybe I'll just design one of those myself for my shop! ????#journeyofjerandauj #alwaysmore #yleo #essentialoils
Said Jeremy Roloff, “I carry my dad’s gene, but it’s a recessive gene — not a dominant gene — so Audrey would have to carry the same gene.”
Audrey Roloff added that there’s no history of dwarfism in her family.
The same SpiritsWander blog post also goes on to say that the chances of Jeremy and Audrey Roloff’s baby having the same type of achondroplasia dwarfism that both Amy and Zach have are not high, adding that “Jeremy, Molly, and Jacob did not inherit the dominant dwarfism gene from Amy (that’s why they aren’t dwarfs), so they don’t carry the gene at all and are as likely as anyone else” to have a child with achondroplasia dwarfism.
The birth of Zach and Tori Roloff’s son will more than likely be featured on an upcoming season of Little People, Big World. In the meantime, watch Jeremy and Audrey Roloff continue to prepare for the birth of their first baby on the current season of Little People, Big World that airs on TLC every Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET, with the next new episode, titled “All the Unknowns,” set to air on Tuesday, May 23.
