Is Tori Roloff's new baby a dwarf?

Both of Zach and Tori's older children, Jackson and Lilah, are little people. They were born with achondroplasia, the same form of dwarfism Zach and his mom, Amy, have. (Matt Roloff, by contrast, has diastrophic dysplasia.) However, they have not yet revealed whether their new baby is also a dwarf.

Obviously, it's completely up to Zach and Tori when it comes to sharing whether their third child is a dwarf. They have likely known for a while now either way, thanks to imaging during pregnancy that can detect whether the size of the head is larger than average and whether the baby's long bones are shorter than average — which are both indicators of achondroplasia.

You can see in the video, below, when they found that Lilah would have dwarfism (and likely a C-section.)

The parents of three will likely open up more about their new baby as the weeks go on — from photos, to milestones, to how Jackson and Lilah are adjusting to the new family member. In time, details about whether Josiah is a little person like his older siblings will probably also be shared. But for now, fans can simply relish in the knowledge that he's here, he's healthy, and he's incredibly adorable.

Season 23 of Little People, Big World kicks off on May 17. New episodes air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
