Every Tuesday night, millions of viewers tune in to watch Dr. Jennifer Arnold and her husband, Bill Klein on the “Little Couple” on TLC. As per last night’s episode, they revealed that they were excited to add on to the family. It’s a big decision for any young couple, but especially complicating for them, as it would involve consulting an obstetrician specializing in dwarfism.
The stars of the show traveled to Baltimore’s St. Joseph’s Medical Center (SJMC) to consult Dr. Judith Rossiter, head of the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. As we reported at the premier date of the show, Jen Arnold was born with spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia, or SED, in which a random genetic mutation causes abnormal collagen formation. This led to her dwarfed stature of 3 feet, 2 inches.
This wasn’t their first visit to SJMC, as that is where each of them underwent surgery for their condition, by late Dr. Steven Koptis. Bill Klein remembers the serendipitous moment of them meeting as kids in the same hospital, only to reunite as adults on a dating site for little people.
According to Vitals.com, Dr. Jennifer Arnold is a highly praised pediatrician, neonatal specialist and assistant professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine. She has 17 personal reviews and comments on her profile granting her a well-deserved Patients’ Choice Award.
