LITTLE People, Big World, stars Zach and Tori Roloff have disclosed whether their baby son Josiah has achondroplasia.
The couple's two other children, Jackson, five, and Lilah, two, have the condition commonly known as dwarfism.
In an exclusive interview with USWeekly, the proud parents shared the news of their three-month-old son's genetic condition.
"He’s Josiah. He has achondroplasia, but he’s not, like, Josiah the achondroplasia," Zach explains as the pair insist that the diagnosis doesn't define the newborn's identity.
"Just like I’m Tori, I have brown hair. I’m not a brunette — like, that’s not how I would classify myself," Tori adds.
The Roloff family is very familiar with the gene mutation, as Zach, and his parents, Amy and Matt, also have dwarfism.

Tori, however, does not have dwarfism.
Neither does Zach's twin brother, Jeremy, 32, and his younger siblings, Molly, 28, and Jacob, 25.
“It’s so normal to us. We have so many resources and there’s a lot of parents out there who don’t have the same resources, and … don’t have the same confidence in everything that Zach and I do," Tori said about raising three children with the condition.
Fans have followed the family's story on the TLC network since the show's inception in 2006.

Zach admits having children of their own with dwarfism is more motivation for them to use their platform to help others facing the condition.
"We will definitely be advocates for people with dwarfism cause of our kids," Zach stated.
“Forever,” Tori added.
The couple welcomed their third child on April 30, earlier than initially expected.
Tori announced the news on her Instagram page with a sweet photo.
She wrote: "Welcome to the world sweet Josiah Luke! April 30th, 2022. 9:02 am. 7 lbs 6oz. 19 1/2 inches long.
"You surprised us all by coming early, but also the wait felt like a lifetime!
"Best birthday present ever!"
After the baby boy's arrival, Zach posted a sweet message and said: "Josiah Luke Roloff. [He] was born April 30, 2022!
"He came about two weeks early but we were ready! Super happy for our family and the kids adore him already.
"Very proud of Tori as well, she has done incredible!"
The new parents of three have since been sharing photos of their baby boy on social media gushing over the tot.
After a rough night, Tori, 31, shared a series of videos of the youngster earlier this week, showing Josiah fast asleep on her chest.
She smiled into the camera and then panned it down to Josiah, who was wrapped in a blanket.
"Party all night. Sleep all day," she captioned the post with a party emoji.
The LPBW star then shared videos of her other children in her stories.
Josiah's older siblings seem to adore their new addition as Tori also posted a snap of Lilah showing affection for her baby brother.
Tori asked her: "Do you love your baby brother?"
