LITTLE Couple fans break down in tears as Jen and Bill Klein’s son Will meets little sister Zoe for the first time in a resurfaced clip.
Jen, 48, recently teased that the show might make a return following fans’ fears that the TLC series was canceled for good.
The clip shows Bill, 47, and Jen bringing baby Zoe, now 10, to meet their son Will after a lengthy, 16-month, adoption process.
Bill explains, “We did our best to prepare Will for meeting his little sister. We didn’t want it to be a surprise to him”.
He continues, “I don’t want him to think that we’re replacing him or something crazy like that”.
The Little Couple clip proceeds with Jen and Bill entering the room where Will, currently 12, is waiting.
The toddler immediately perks to attention, rushing over excitedly to greet his new sister.
“Baby”, he calls as he waits for his parents to show him the newest Klein addition.
Jen asks him, “Do you know who that is?” to which Will again replies, “Baby”.
Will touches the baby’s foot as Bill tells him, “This is Zoe”.
The Toddler lights up, waving his arms in elation as he vies for a better position to see baby Zoe.
Bill narrates: “I think that when he saw Zoe he knew her from the photos. He’s a smart kid and it’s no surprise that he was probably more prepared than we were”.
The TLC star sits Zoe down for Will to get a better look as Jen warns, “she might cry a little”.
She does for a moment but interest in her new big brother quickly overrides any fear she might have been experiencing.
Baby Zoe watches intently as Jen makes the introductions.
“Zoe this is Will, your big brother, and Will this is Zoe, your little sister.”
Will immediately, and lovingly, gives Zoe a kiss on her foot.
The sweet moment touches the parents as Jen tears up and admits, “That just made me cry”.
She continues as if she can’t believe the sincerity of Will’s greeting: “He just kissed her foot, he’s killing me.”
The clip was reposted to YouTube where fans discussed the emotional moment in the comment section.
One fan wrote: “The expression on Zoey’s face is priceless when Will comes over to her. After he kisses her foot and holds her hand, she becomes so relaxed.”
Another person added: “The way Will’s eyes light up when he knows it’s Zoey…Brings tears to my eyes every time I watch.”
A third YouTuber commented: “His reaction was so cute. As soon as they said Zoey he just lit up. Such a beautiful family.”
Little Couple fans on Reddit also gave their take on Will and baby Zoe’s first meeting.
One Redditor wrote: “This is my favorite clip…so sweet.”
While another fan commented: “Omg, yes, I completely melted when I first saw that. He seems to be such a good friend and big brother to her.”
RETURN TO TV?
Little Couple fans believe Dr. Jen Arnold dropped a clue the family is filming a new season after she took to Instagram to share a photo alongside her husband, Bill Klein.
Jen captioned the post: “Guess who’s back, back again,” while adding various hashtags, including “health” and “checkup.”
However, fans took the TV star’s caption as a clue that the TLC series may be coming back soon.
One person wrote: “Please tell me [the] show is back on Jen!”
Another added: “New season? Please!” while one chimed in with, “you’ve been greatly missed.”
One viewer simply wrote: “looking forward to a new season!”
Previously, fans speculated The Little Couple had been canceled, as it has been two years since any new episodes were aired.
However, it is believed the lack of a new season is likely due to the pair’s expensive lawsuit with producers.
In July 2020, Jen and Bill, 46, settled their three-year lawsuit against the reality show’s producer to reclaim intellectual property rights.
The legal matter started four years prior when 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.
