Our hearts go out to the cutest couple on TV!
On Tuesday's episode of TLC's The Little Couple, Dr. Jennifer Arnold and husband Bill Klein, learned their surrogate was pregnant. Sadly, we've learned that since filming for this season ended the couple's unborn child was miscarried.
Bill explains how he had to break the news over the phone. He says:
"I didn't want her to be the last person to find out. Ugly or happy, it needs to be told. It was a very tough day, and Jen took it harder than she originally expected."
Still, Jennifer didn't take the news well. She admits,
"I cried my eyes out. I deal with families who lose their babies and I will cry with them, but I thought I would be stronger. Nothing can completely prepare for all that when it is about you."
Both Jen and Bill have skeletal dysplasia, a bone-growth disorder that causes dwarfism, have documented their road to parenthood on the show. They decided to use a surrogate to have a baby, because of the challenges a pregnancy could pose to her health.
It's so sad when something bad (and not totally self inflicted) happens to a reality show couple!
We really hope they don't give up. Anyone who's seen the show knows they would make amazing parents!
