According to a rep for the couple, Terra and Joe Gnoffo are thrilled to announce the birth of their third child. Her full name is Magnolia August Gnoffo.
The baby was actually born several weeks ago on March 11, 2020 and weighed in at 5lbs 12oz. The baby’s length came in at 20” — the parents have announced she has a form of dwarfism called, “Achondroplasia.”
“Magnolia is achon and will be tested to see if she’s pseudo as well when it’s safe to be out and about,” the parents said in a statement.
Achondroplasia is a “genetic disorder that results in dwarfism. In those with the condition, the arms and legs are short, while the torso is typically of normal length.” As for “pseudo” the parents will test the newborn for “Pseudoachondroplasia” which “is a short-limbed dwarfing condition characterized by disproportionate short stature.”
The parents have not ventured out due to Coronavirus quarantine, by say they are excited to introduce their new bundle of joy to the world as soon as possible.
“We are tucked away safely at home and waiting for all of this to pass so we can finally introduce our friends and family to our Magnolia. While we understand these are uncertain times, we are overjoyed to be here, a family of five!” the couple said.
As we reported, tragedy stuck the Little Women: LA reality show family earlier this week when Terra’s co-star, Christy McGinity lost her 2-week old daughter to complications at birth.
McGinity and her boyfriend, Gonzalo Justo Carazo, issued a statement, saying, “It is with our deepest sorrow that we send our baby girl Violet Eva Carazo to play with the angels. We were able to spend two weeks with our sweet baby girl and for that, we are forever thankful.”
They continued, “Violet Eva Carazo was born on March 6, 2020, and weighed 3 lbs and 15 oz. The couple says the baby was born at 33 weeks, which made her seven weeks early.”
At the time, McGinity shared a heartbreaking photo of the baby’s feet in her mother’s hand.
