The show has documented their struggles with becoming parents and the decision to ultimately use a surrogate after learning pregnancy would pose health risks for Jennifer.

Big New House For Little Hailey on 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 17th 2011 3:30AM
'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' - 'The Korpai Family'This week, Ty Pennington and the 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 8PM ET on ABC) took on a task very close to the heart for Amy and Matt Roloff ('Little People Big World'). The Korpai family have a five-year old daughter, Hailey, with dwarfism, but their house is hardly suitable for her needs.

The Roloffs undertook a similar renovation on their farm to make the kitchen and other areas of the house more user-friendly for little people. So the design team stopped by Roloff farms for some inspiration, and invited Matt back to help with the build. Bill Klein and Jen Arnold ('The Little Couple') got involved as well, as this was more than just a rebuild of a house.

Bill and Jen Talk to Kids About Bullying on 'The Little Couple' (VIDEO)

Bill Klein and Jennifer Arnold on 'The Little Couple'Bill Klein knows what it's like to be bullied. Klein, who stars with his wife Jennifer Arnold on 'The Little Couple' (Tuesdays, 10PM on TLC), both have dwarfism, and had a tough time as kids. On Tuesday's episode, the couple was asked to speak at an elementary school near their home in Houston about bullying.

Klein and Arnold planned how they were going to approach the talk, and Klein brought up some notes he found from his former family doctor. "I guess at this ripe young age of 11, I was having some issues that I did voice to him, and he documented it," he said. "It said, 'Billy is now 11-years-old. He has difficulty in dealing with his shortness of stature. He's being bullied in school.'"

A Setback for Baby Plans on 'The Little Couple' Premiere (VIDEO)

'The Little Couple'Jennifer Arnold and Bill Klein have decided they're ready to have a baby, opting to do so by way of a surrogate. The season premiere of 'The Little Couple' (Tue., 10PM ET on TLC) saw them heading for the hospital to harvest Jennifer's eggs for the procedure.

Only, something unexpected and possibly unprecedented happened while they were there. When the doctor went to check the ultrasound one last time before going in to get the egg, he took longer than expected.

"I'm wondering if you've ovulated in the last fifteen minutes, if you can believe that," he told her. Later, he was sure of it as there was no sign of the egg. Just like that, the opportunity, at least for now, was missed.

'Little Couple' Jen Arnold and Bill Klein on the Show's New Season

Jen Arnold and Bill Klein of 'The Little Couple' on TLCJen Arnold and Bill Klein, stars of the TLC reality series 'The Little Couple,' are unique in the universe of cable reality, but not because of their size. The couple, who begin their third season on June 1 at 10PM ET, are unique because they're so unrelentingly normal. And, considering Jen is a prominent neonatal physician and Bill owns his own training business, showing their "normalness" was very important to the both of them.

"I... wanted to make sure that overall the show was positive and not sensational, because the last thing I wanted to do was to negatively affect our careers," said Jen, "which always is a risk you take when you put yourself out there in the spotlight."

I spoke to Jen and Bill while they were visiting New York to attend TLC's summer press party; they were also doing some press and shooting for the show, including Bill's upcoming stand-up routine at Caroline's. Read on to find out how that came about.

TLC Renews 'The Little Couple,' Their Best "Little" Show

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 23rd 2010 3:02PM
Jen Arnold and Bill Klein of 'The Little Couple' on TLCA couple of weeks ago, I joked that Discovery Networks seems to have every little person in America under contract for a reality show. They do seem to be fascinated with the lives of people with dwarfism, aren't they?

The company's various channels have explored primordial dwarfism, followed a little couple as they adopted an Eastern European baby with dwarfism, and followed a third little couple during the wife's pregnancy. They've also decided to build a series around a little couple who own a chocolate shop in Salt Lake City ('The Little Chocolatiers') and a little person who rescues pit bulls ('Pit Boss'). And the family who started TLC down this road, the Roloffs, are still cranking out episodes of 'Little People, Big World.'

Of all these shows, I've always liked 'The Little Couple' the best. I'm not sure if it's because it's so unrelentingly normal or that Bill Klein and Jen Arnold make such a charming couple. Either way, it's good to hear that TLC has renewed the show for a third season.
