DR JEN Arnold shared an adorable picture of her nine-year-old daughter Zoey playing doctor as fans hope for another “future physician” in the family.
The Little Couple stars have been “dropping clues” of a new season after a major lawsuit has delayed production for over two years.
Dr Jen, 47, took to Instagram on Wednesday to share an adorable photo of her daughter Zoey pretending to use a stethoscope on a baby doll.
The young star smiled as she held the pink instrument and played doctor with her fake patient.
The reality star captioned her post: “Happy National Healthcare Simulation Week! Whether you are training brand new healthcare clinicians (or still grade school like Zoey) or experienced practicing clinicians, healthcare simulation is a great way to prepare for high risk & rare medical situations.”
Fans rushed to the comments as they gushed over the cute picture and expressed hope for another physician in the Arnold/Klein family.
“So do we have another super doctor in Zoey … 👏👏🔥❤️” one asked earnestly.
“Like mother like daughter,” a second expressed, while a third wrote fondly: “taking after her mum! :).”
“She got IT from her Mama 👩🏻⚕️,” another noticed, and a final shared: “She is a little doctor! 😍 Hey Zoe, say hello tô Brazil!!! 🇧🇷.”
END OF AN ERA?
Jen’s post followed hints that The Little Couple may be returning to TLC after a blowout $7million lawsuit with the producers.
Earlier this week, the TV personality shared a selfie alongside her husband Bill Klein, captioned: “Guess who’s back, back again,” alongside various hashtags, including “health” and “checkup.”
However, fans took the notion to mean the show could be returning, as they flooded the comments with their theories.
“Please tell me show is back on Jen!” one urged.
Another asked: “New season? Please!” while one chimed in with, “you’ve been greatly missed.”
One user simply wrote: “looking forward to a new season!”
TLC viewers have worried that The Little Couple had been canceled, as it has been two years since any new episodes were aired.
BATTLE OF PRODUCERS
However, many have attributed the wait to an expensive lawsuit the couple filed against show producers.
In July 2020, Jen and Bill, 46, settled their three-year lawsuit against the reality show’s creators to reclaim intellectual property rights.
The issue began four years prior when the producer LMNO Cable Group sued Discovery Communications for $7 million.
In court papers obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, LMNO Cable Group claimed their accountant falsified records to hide hundreds of thousands of dollars in embezzled money.
LMNO and Discovery Communications eventually agreed to a settlement, but the case did not stop there.
In May of 2017, Jen and Bill intervened, as they believed they were “entitled to a portion of LMNO’s contingent compensation…”
They also felt entitled to a portion of Discovery’s “’adjusted gross revenues’ from certain forms of exploitation of the Program.”
The couple accused LMNO of breach of contract, fraud, unfair competition, conversion, and more.
In court papers obtained by The Sun, the parties agreed to mediation and eventually reached a settlement agreement.
The court ordered the lawsuit to be dismissed in light of the “successful” mediation.
Jen and Bill share son Will, 11, and daughter Zoey, nine.
