With Tori Roloff due to give birth any day now, she and husband Zach Roloff have been preparing nonstop for their little one's arrival.

After learning they were going to be having a son:


The pair put the finishing touches on the nursery:



And the pair discussed potential baby names. According to TLC, Zach enjoys the classic names, like “Jack” and “Timothy,” while Tori is into more “unique” names, such as “Noah” or “Malachi.”

The pair also had an in-depth conversation about what will happen if they welcomed a dwarf baby into the world.

According to earlier reports, an ultrasound showed their son's limbs measuring below average. However, they won't know whether the baby will have the condition until he is born.


In an earlier video, the “Little People, Big World” star discussed with twin brother Jeremy the idea of having a baby with achondroplasia, a type of dwarfism.

Zach talked through some of his fears with Jeremy:

“What am I going to say? Oh yeah, I want a dwarf baby. I can't wait for that kid to be bullied.”

Now, Tori is expressing her own concerns with Zach, who seems to be more calm about his son potentially having dwarfism.

While she doesn't think they will give birth to a little person, the 26-year-old mom-to-be admitted that it would be “scary” for her:

“It’s a big deal. It is scary. No parent wants to hear that their child is different, no matter what that is."

Zach countered by saying their son wouldn't technically be “different” because he would be ”just like" him.


Yet, Tori still voiced her fears, adding that a child with achondroplasia could be faced with more health issues down the line:

"I think as a parent it would be scary. If you didn’t know anything about dwarfism and you found out your child was a dwarf, that would be scary. There are certain things that would come along with having an achondroplasia child that would be more difficult than having a child that was average height.”

Zach agreed, detailing all the medical treatments he has received:

“I had to have leg straightening, so I had two casts on. Then I had to go back into surgery sophomore year of high school, they added screws to the leg. So I’m not going to say: ‘Oh yeah, man, I wish my kid had dwarfism. All those struggles he’s going to go through? Heck yeah! Can’t wait!’ But I’m also not going to say: ‘I really hope [he’s] an average height.’ Average height kids have issues, too.”

Zach believes that regardless of what happens, Tori will be a “great mother no matter what.”

And regardless of the obstacles they may face, Tori will “adapt," admitting that "whatever pops out, [they're] going to love it.”
