'The Little Couple' stars Dr. Jennifer Arnold and husband Bill Klein. The two have skeletal dysplasia, a bone-growth disorder that caused their dwarfism. 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.
"After we got pregnant, the craziness ensued with us wondering what to do with the baby's room, making sure our surrogate was getting her daily dose of baby vitamins," Bill told People.
Bill found out the surrogate miscarried and had to break the news to Jennifer while she was at work.
"I cried my eyes out," Jennifer, a neonatologist, told People. "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."
The setback hasn't stopped the two from wanting to become parents. They're trying again, exploring adoption and other surrogacy routes.
Since the episode aired on Nov. 1, fans have sent messages of support to the reality stars on Facebook.
"Thank you so much for your ongoing support and prayers," the couple said in a statement on their Facebook page. "While the loss of the pregnancy was difficult for us, we remain upbeat and focused on growing our family. The story doesn't end here ... we promise."
