Warning: This article contains Little People, Big World spoilers.
Little People, Big World wraps up Season 12 with a special two-hour season finale that sees Zach and Tori Roloff finally head to the delivery room to welcome Baby Jackson. In a People sneak preview, the nervous parents-to-be discuss the nitty gritty of Tori’s upcoming cesarean section, which elicits a surprising response from Zach!
“I kind of have always looked at birth as miserable,” Tori confesses to Little People, Big World cameras. “A C-section is just a different kind of miserable.”
But Zach, ever the supportive husband, tries to make her feel better.
“You’ll be okay baby,” he promises. “I’ll be by you.”
But then the conversation turns from how Tori is going to handle the C-section to how Zach is going to handle witnessing the big event.
“Are you going to look?” she asks her notoriously squeamish husband. “Don’t look.I would suggest don’t look. I don’t care if you look down at the incision, but from what I’ve heard, I would suggest don’t look.”
But Zach is confused, asking why Tori wouldn’t want him to see the moment their son is born.
“They literally take your intestines out and put them on the table,” Tori explains.
At first, the very thought seems to horrify Zach, but then a curious smile slides across his face.
“That’s like a bucket list kind of thing,” he says. “When will I ever be able to see someone’s intestines?”
For curious Little People, Big World fans, a pregnant woman’s intestines are rarely lifted from her body during a C-section, according to BabyCenter. Normally, her bladder and intestines are simply moved to the side within the body cavity to give the surgeon a better view of the uterus. The intestines are typically only lifted from a woman’s body if they are damaged during the delivery and require treatment.
However, just the possibility of Zach seeing a graphic C-section worries Tori, who fears the sight will cause her husband to faint.
Zach insists he’ll be fine, promising, “I won’t pass out.”
But Tori isn’t buying it.
“Babe, you almost passed out getting a shot,” she replies, before reminding him how much she needs Zach by her side during Baby Jackson’s delivery.
“You know what I don’t like?” she admits. “I’m told when I’m on the table getting prepped for surgery, they take you out of the room and prep you for surgery. I’m not going to be about that life. Because if you leave my side, I’m not going to be calm.”
Meanwhile, in an US sneak peek of Tuesday’s Little People, Big World, Zach and Tori say that they are ready — but apprehensive — for parenthood.
“Tori’s just over being pregnant,” Zach explains. “She’s over the heartburn. She can’t sleep, can’t get comfortable. We’re both ready to just do this.”
However, Tori admitted to feeling fearful about raising a child with anchondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism and the type that Zach has.
“It was always a scary thought to have an achon baby,” Tori confesses while sitting with Zach on the couch. “I went to the dwarf games with you and saw one kid in particular who had a [trachestomy]. It terrified me because there was a moment when we were on the field that he stopped breathing and his mom was so on it, she literally didn’t flinch.”
She continues, “I remember being terrified and thinking that could be my future.”
But caring husband Zach responds love and support.
“I think you’re going to be a great mom,” he says. “I think it’s going to be fine.”
As Inquisitr previously reported, Baby Jackson was born on May 12.
The two-hour season finale of Little People, Big World airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
