Little woman, big family! Terra Jole is pregnant with her third child, RadarOnline.com can confirm. The Little Women: LA star is expecting her little one with husband Joe Gnoffo.
“Life is about to get even more chaotic and joyful in the spring with our new blessing,” the TLC stars told Radar in a statement. “So excited to finally be able to share this big news (and not have to hide the growing belly anymore!) and really enjoy this pregnancy.”
The proud parents continued, “We are feeling all the emotions right now as our party of four becomes a party of five!”
The new addition will join big sister Penelope, 4, and big brother Grayson, 3.
Terra, 39, is currently 21 weeks pregnant and is expecting her third child just five days before Penelope’s 5th birthday in March.
In an interview with People, Terra revealed the pregnancy was not planned.
“This child will forever be a blessing,” she told the website.
As Little Women: LA fans know, their daughter Penny has achondroplasia, the same type of dwarfism as Terra.
Penny has undergone multiple brain procedures. She started “officially walking” this week.
As for Grayson, he has the same form of dwarfism as Joe, 42, called pseudoachondroplasia.
“Being little may be challenging at times, but it has made us who we are today,” she told People. “It won’t always be easy. It won’t always be hard, but embracing dwarfism will hopefully be instilled in both our children.”
But Terra isn’t the only pregnant Little Women: LA star!
She filed for an annulment from husband Todd Gibel in June 2019. The case remains ongoing.

Bump, There It Is!
Terra flaunted her growing – and glowing! – bump in a pregnancy photo shoot.
The reality star dressed up her bump in a white dress and lights.
The soon-to-be mom of three hasn’t revealed if her third child has dwarfism.
Last season, Terra opened up about Penny’s struggle with hydrocephalus, which is a condition where fluid builds up in the brain.
“Penny was born with hydrocephalus and we thought after having the decompression surgery that would be the end of it,” she explained on the show. “Since then, Penny had a programmable shunt put in five months ago. What that means is this is a magnetic shunt that drains fluid from her brain down into her stomach cavity… It’s so scary.”
Three months after the shunt surgery, Penny was rushed to the hospital when she vomited twice. “They told me that there’s a good chance that her shunt is malfunctioning,” she said. “I literally found out at 1 a.m., and then at 5 a.m. she’s in surgery. That was the scariest. That was like, hands down the scariest.”
As for her son, she received many questions about his development because he appears to be average-sized. But she confirmed that he does have a different form of Dwarfism.
“We weren’t going to get tested for a long time, but we ended up deciding on actually having the testing done, and it’s official that he is little,” Terra previously told Access. “We are in a little family. And I’m grateful for that. I know that a lot of people think that it may be a negative thing, but we wouldn’t have had children if we thought dwarfism was negative.”
