“Little Women: LA” star Terra Jolé got a spinoff reality series of her own after she and boyfriend Joe Gnoffo discovered she was pregnant. The couple documented their experience, and now the result, “Little Women: Terra’s Little Family,” is set to premiere Wednesday on Lifetime. Spoiler: Those who follow the star on social media already know she gave birth to a healthy baby girl, but, as the new show reveals, the process of getting there wasn’t an easy one.
Both Jolé and Gnoffo suffer from achondroplasia, a disorder that causes short-limbed dwarfism. Her pregnancy was considered high risk, and when she was 35 weeks pregnant, her doctor wanted the reality star to get an MRI to see if the baby had hydrocephalus, or water on the brain. The condition can cause brain damage, so the couple agreed to the MRI.
"I'm frustrated seeing Terra in this giant tube because I feel helpless. I feel like there's nothing I can do and I just want the results to be good," Gnoffo says in a promotional clip for "Terra's Little Family."
The couple also argue about the name of the baby in the video. Gnoffo wants to name her Penny and Jolé wants to name her Charlie. (It seems like Gnoffo won, because when the baby was born in March, the duo named her Penelope Charlevoix Gnoffo.)
There’s also another spoiler for “Little Women” fans, courtesy of People magazine. Gnoffo will be seen taking Jolé on a helicopter ride and proposing to her during a romantic picnic date. “I want to surprise Terra and take her out before we jump in headfirst with all the baby stuff,” Gnoffo tells the cameras.
When they arrive at their destination, Gnoffo gets down on one knee and asks: “How about me, you and Penelope stay together forever -- will you marry me baby?”
To find out Jolé’s answer, don’t miss “Little Women: Terra’s Little Family,” which will premiere Wednesday at 9 p.m. EDT on Lifetime.
