TLC viewers can’t wait to learn more about Zach Roloff and Tori Roloff’s growing brood when Little People, Big World returns with new Roloff family programming. Jackson Roloff’s leg surgery is detailed in the season 23 episode aired on May 31, 2022. Here’s all you need to know about Zach and Tori’s son’s surgery and why he needs it.
What Is Jackson Roloff’s Current Age?
He is one of Tori and Zach Roloff’s children who suffers from achondroplasia. ‘Little People, Big World’ stars Zach and Tori Roloff with Jackson Roloff. Jackson Roloff, who is five years old, was the first grandchild to see Little People, Big World.
Tori Roloff is of ordinary height, whereas Zach Roloff suffers from achondroplasia, the same form of dwarfism that his mother, Amy Roloff, suffers from. Zach and Tori’s other two children are also dwarfs. Jackson had a 50% probability of being born with dwarfism due to his parents’ choices.
While achondroplasia has no effect on his longevity, it causes his bones to develop unnaturally. Despite the additional hurdles, Zach and Tori were constantly aware of the dangers. They’ve also stated in the past that they’re entirely open to having children of any size or form.
Tori told In Touch in 2017 that having children with dwarfism would be “frightening” for her as a mom. “It would be frightening if you didn’t know anything about dwarfism and found out your child was a dwarf.” There are several aspects of having an achondroplasia child that is more difficult to deal with than having a child of typical height.” In ‘Little People, Big World,’ Tori Roloff recounts Jackson’s leg surgery.
The third episode of Little People, Big World, “Battle Ground,” focuses on Jackson and his bent legs. At the time of filming, Jackson required surgery, which he has now undergone. According to Us Weekly, Tori detailed the event on her Instagram Stories.
She wrote, “So Jackson DID undergo leg surgery.” “However, it was for the purpose of correcting bending over time.” Plates were placed on his growth plates. Nothing happened right away. His legs will presumably straighten as he grows, allowing us to avoid more intrusive surgery.”
While Jackson’s legs appear to be bent following surgery, Tori indicated that this will improve with time. She also confirmed that he is not in any discomfort. “We’re hopeful the pigeon toe and bowing will be gone in the next five to six years,” she wrote. “I appreciate everyone who has expressed concern for baby J.” Josiah, the couple’s third child, was born with dwarfism in April 2022.
On Little People, Big World, Zach and Tori Roloff discussed their concerns about their two eldest children, Jackson and Lilah. While Jackson’s legs required surgery, Lilah had additional health concerns that Tori was continually concerned about. The couple now has a third child. According to People, Josiah Luke Roloff was born on April 30, 2022. Achondroplasia was also present at birth in Josiah.
While Zach and Tori adore their children, it appears that they have no plans to extend their family. “I’d never say never,” Tori remarked, “because I can’t believe those first few days are already past.” “I went into it with the mentality that this would most likely be our final baby, so it’s been more emotional this time.” Now, all we have to do is enjoy our three children. “Never say never,” they say, but I believe they mean “never.” Zach Roloff Slams Matt Roloff for ‘Manipulating’ Roloff Farms Information in ‘Little People, Big World’
Roloff Farms is featured prominently in Season 23 of Little People, Big World. After their divorce, Amy Roloff moved off the farm and sold half of the land back to Matt Roloff, as seen in the TLC series. Matt just stated that he is selling 16 acres of the land after his children declined to buy it. After the news surfaced, Zach Roloff said Matt was “manipulating the narrative” regarding the farm.
Zach Roloff tried to buy Amy Roloff’s part of Roloff Farms, but the deal fell through. Matt Roloff and Zach had a falling out over the Roloff Farms ambitions in the new season of Little People, Big World. Since the split, Zach and his wife, Tori Roloff, have relocated to Washington and have given up ownership of the farm totally. Many fans were surprised when Matt decided to sell 16 acres of Roloff Farms. On Instagram, he went into further depth.
On May 15, 2022, he said, “My twin lads chose not to contemplate working jointly toward a future joint sale.” “Both of them (together with their expanding families) had moved on to other pursuits and investments…” Despite the fact that both Amy and [myself] provided a considerable family discount and a ‘gift of equity,’ they each concluded that the timing was not perfect for them to acquire a portion of the farm at this time.”
Given this, Matt went on to say that he “took the painful decision” so that he could “take steps” toward his retirement aspirations. Matt Roloff is being chastised online by Zach Roloff for manipulating the narrative.’
Zach Roloff had a reaction to Matt Roloff’s Roloff Farms update for all of the Little People, Big World fans who were keeping up. The younger Roloff was dissatisfied with his father’s job. The message was caught by a Reddit user and appears to have been removed when Matt disabled comments.
“Right before the season premiere, my father is influencing the narrative,” Zach wrote. “Once again, he is blaming others and not taking responsibility for his own acts, as he has done for most of his life.” Dragging his own family issues and then [manipulating] the fan following to make himself look good.” Finally, Zach referred to the post as a “remarkable low of cowardice and deception.”
Zach spoke to E! News after the social media meltdown to clarify where he and Matt stand now. He stated, “It’s all okay.” “We’re all related….” I believe it was a mistake to post it on social media, but I believe I communicated my opinions well.”
Amy Roloff Discusses Her Son’s Ex-Conflict Husband:

Where does Amy Roloff stand in the Little People, Big World rivalry between Matt and Zach Roloff this season? She recently discussed the Roloff Farms situation with Us Weekly. It’s painful for her to see her ex-husband and son having such a terrible time with one other, she said.
“I’m simply disappointed that it’s come to this,” Amy expressed her disappointment. “Parts of me aren’t shocked since I’ve dealt with Matt over the years and he can be harsh and nasty, but I also believe that whatever expectations both of them had gone out the window [and] they plainly didn’t sync up.”
With that said, she stated that “Matt is still the father,” and that her children may need to comprehend some situations. “However, you may have to choose the higher path as a father,” she continued. Season 23 of Little People, Big World airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
