Terra Jole and Joe Gnoffo’s high-risk pregnancy has been one of the main focuses of this season of Lifetime’s Little Women: LA. Now, the couple has decided to document the arrival of their first child in a new unscripted program, Little Women: Terra’s Little Family. The 10-episode series premieres April 8, at 9pm ET and will be shot in near real time as Terra approaches her due date later this month. Before the series’ premiere, Little Women: Terra’s Little Family Special will take a look back at Terra and Joe’s pregnancy journey so far on Little Women: LA.
The series looks like a sweet peek into Joe and Terra’s relationship and will offer incredible insight into the challenges that parents of short stature face. And with Terra’s frank, no-holds barred personality, I’m sure it will be incredibly blunt and revealing (and hilarious).
Terra and Joe, both people of short stature, have decided not to undergo amniocentesis during the pregnancy to determine if their child has any form of dwarfism. Both choose to love their child for whoever he or she may be; including if the child inherits genes for dwarfism from both parents. This condition, called “Double dominance” occurs in 25% of all cases where both parents have a form of dwarfism, and the condition is usually fatal for the baby.
Terra and Joe are both performers and have been together for seven years. Terra has toured with top celebrities including Miley Cyrus, recently released her own single “Booty Bee” and is currently working on her new album. Joe, a musician in Mini Kiss, is now playing drums in a Nirvana tribute band, Nirvanish.
