7 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Little People, Big World’ Star Zach Roloff
Zach Roloff rose to fame thanks to his family’s reality TV show, Little People, Big World, which began airing on TLC in 2006. Although he’s grown up in the spotlight, he keeps a pretty low profile, so not a whole lot is known about him. We’re trying to fix that, which is why we have these 7 things you probably didn’t know him:
Zachary Luke Roloff was born on May 10, 1990 in Oregon to Matthew Roloff and Amy Roloff. He has a twin brother named Jeremy, as well as a sister named Molly and a brother named Jacob. Like his mother, Zach was born with achondroplasia, which means that his arms and legs are disproportionate with his torso; however, his three siblings are all of average height. “It’s fun,” he said. “We go through the same experiences as we grow up, but we experience it different ways.”
6. Health Problems
He’s had a number of health issues. As a child, he had a skull shunt implanted to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid, but the shunt failed and Zach needed emergency surgery to replace it. He’s also had surgery to correct the bowing of his legs.
