Tori Roloff, the star of the popular reality show Little People, Big World, has dismissed concerns over her son Jackson’s condition. The five-year-old was seen chasing his brother Josiah’s mini Jeep toy in a recent video on Tori’s Instagram Stories, prompting renewed worries from fans about the bowed appearance of his legs.
Little People, Big World: The Concerns of Fans
Many TLC fans have expressed their concerns over Jackson’s legs in the past, with several commenting on a recent post about his brother’s birthday celebrations. Fans noticed that Jackson’s legs looked increasingly arched, leading to questions about any additional surgeries he might need. One fan even suggested that Tori check out the Shriners in her area, who could offer assistance to Jackson free of charge.
In 2021, Jackson underwent surgery to help with his condition, which his parents Zach and Tori have explained isn’t a guaranteed solution. The plates that were put on his growth plates will hopefully straighten his legs over time as he continues to grow, but the process is slow, and it may take years before they see any clear results.
Little People, Big World: Zach’s Update on Jackson’s Progress
Zach Roloff, who is a dwarf like his parents, has also updated fans on Jackson’s progress in the past, saying that it’s challenging to see any immediate changes because his son only grows around an inch per year. Zach explained that the screws in Jackson’s legs help straighten them as he grows, but it won’t be obvious for a while, and the average person with the same surgery would see the difference a lot quicker.
Little People, Big World: Tori Roloff’s Response to the Concerns
Despite the ongoing concerns from fans, Tori appears unfazed and continues to share updates about her family on social media. She has not commented on the recent worries about Jackson’s legs, instead focusing on her son Josiah’s first birthday celebrations.
Tori Roloff has also previously shared the struggles she’s faced as the mother of a child with a medical condition. She has spoken about the emotional toll of Jackson’s surgeries and hospital visits, but also the joy and pride she feels as a parent.
