'LPBW': 5 Things You Didn't Know About Jackson Roloff

Jackson Kyle Roloff has become quite the star. The Little People, Big World fan-favorite has gained many admirers in the four years since he was born. Here are five things that you probably didn't know about Tori and Zach Roloff's firstborn.

LPBWThe Real Reason Why He Was Named Jackson Kyle Roloff

Jackson Roloff is quite a unique name, and apparently, it's the only one that Zach and Tori could agree on. Zach wanted the name "Jack" because it was more traditional, and he simply liked the name. Tori, on the other hand, wanted something more unique. The couple decided on the more "grown-up" name, which was a good compromise on what they both wanted.

Jackson and Zach Celebrate Their Birthdays Two Days Apart

Jackson was born on May 12, 2017, while dad Zach was born on May 10, 2021. That means the LPBW star celebrates his birthday just two days after his dad and uncle Jeremy's big day.

Little People, Big World: Jackson Needed Time To Adjust To Having a Baby Sister

When Lilah Ray Roloff was born, everyone in the family was elated. However, there was one who felt a tad awkward at first. Jackson Roloff took some time to warm up to his younger sister as he was content to "admire her from afar." 

As seen in his parents' social media posts, Jackson has since been pretty close to Lilah. In fact, the LPBW celeb wants to name his third sibling after his little sister.

Jackson Knows Want He Wants To Be In The Future

Many parents wish their children would follow a career path similar to theirs. Jackson, however, wants to be a pilot like his uncle Jeremy. Zach's twin is hoping to be a certified pilot this spring.

An Instagram post shared by Tori back in September shows Jackson on his first day of preschool holding a framed board with the words, "I want to be a pilot when I grow up." The Little People, Big World tot was holding the same board when he was entering pre-kindergarten, and it also said he wanted to be a pilot.

LPBW: Jackson Had Surgery To Fix His Legs

Jackson Roloff went under the knife on November 30 to correct his bowed legs. Like his dad, the LPBW star suffers from achondroplasia, a kind of short-limbed dwarfism. 

Bowed legs are quite common in children with this condition. Zach and Tori decided to go with the surgery when they noticed that Jackson's legs were "starting to bow a little bit."

The less invasive surgery involved fixing his ankle, which was "very rounded." His knees were "pretty straight," so it's possible that doctors just need to repair the ankle. It'll take some time to see the results of the surgery as they will be more evident as Jackson grows older.
