Time flies! Jen Arnold and her husband, Bill Klein, welcomed fans into their homes while filming The Little Couple and introduced us to their loving children, son William and daughter Zoey, who they adopted in 2013.
Viewers are taken aback by how much the kids have changed since their reality TV debut, especially after seeing the new portraits shared by their proud mom.
The neonatologist, 46, gushed over the incredible memories they have made while celebrating a special occasion on Friday, February 12. “Happy Chinese New Year to all!” she captioned her latest Instagram portraits including Will and Bill, 46. “Can’t believe we were blessed 8 years ago with the most incredible golden son! #lunarnewyear #chinesenewyear @reallybillklein #happynewyear.”
“When Jennifer and I first got together, my selfish attitude was I wanted a kid that was genetically mine,” Bill said in an October 2018 episode, revealing he had a change of heart after they struggled with fertility issues. “And then we talked about how many kids were out there that didn’t have a home, that needed love and support from a family and were relegated to a life of institutionalization. I think that I couldn’t have done any better a job through surrogacy, through the old-fashioned way or anything else.”
The pair adopted Will from an orphanage in China. Soon after, they got news from an orphanage in India that Zoey was ready to find her forever home.
“When I saw Will’s picture, I fell in love immediately,” the businessman added, noting he felt the exact same emotions when he saw the first glimpse of his future daughter. “When I saw Zoey’s picture, I fell in love immediately,” he shared.
Around that time, the lovebirds relocated from Houston, Texas, to St. Petersburg, Florida, and moved into a new home. “Thankfully, our kids are very easygoing and very happy, and they just seem to get enthusiastic about everything that’s new,” Jen said on the show. “So, I’m glad that they like the house.”
More recently, Jen shared a heartwarming montage of photos featuring Zoey, who is now 9 years old, smiling while decorating some cupcakes. “Baking with my girl for #NaiNai [my mom’s] birthday dinner,” she captioned the pics.
The future is looking bright for the Klein family!
