Little People’s Tori Roloff shares tearful video of son Jackson after sparking health concerns in a six-year-old
TORI Roloff has posted a new video showing her young son concerned for his wellbeing.
The Little People, Big World star shared the clip of Jackson to her Instagram Stories yesterday.
In the video, Tori, who recently turned 32, filmed her six-year-old son sitting at a table.
Wearing a sporty T-shirt, Jackson seemed focused on his homework.
The boy was holding a Sharpie pen, which he was tracing over his drawing of a butterfly’s life cycle.
As he filled in his scrawl of a caterpillar, he softly sang, “Jesus, strong and kind.”
Tori captioned the video with three crying emojis, seemingly absorbed in her eldest son’s sweet moment.
As well as Jackson, the TV star shares three-year-old Lilah and one-year-old Josiah with her husband Zach.
Is Jackson okay?
After Tori posted photos from Josiah’s rodeo birthday party, many TLC fans became concerned about Jackson’s health.
Many commenters noticed how bent Jackson’s legs looked, and some asked curious questions about the surgery he might have to fix the problem.

One asked: “What a beautiful family!! I love watching your show!! Are there any other surgeries to straighten his legs?”
Another suggested: “Check out the Shriners in your area. You will help Jackson for free.”
“I thought Jackson had surgery to fix his legs?” asked a third fan.
A recent fan commented, “Jackson’s legs are getting arched for this kid, he must be very uncomfortable walking.”
Fans have previously expressed their concern for the young Jackson after noting his bow legs in a photo taken in March and in pictures from his most recent soccer game win.
In 2021, Jackson underwent surgery to ease his condition.
Zach and Tori explained that Jackson’s surgery wouldn’t necessarily ensure an easy fix.
Earlier last year, Tori explained the procedure on Instagram: “He had plates placed on his growth plates. Nothing changed immediately.”
“Hopefully as his legs grow they will straighten out and we can avoid more invasive surgery.”
In June, she also stated, “We won’t know in a few years how successful the surgery was as this is something that happens slowly and over time.”
In November, Zach announced that they still hadn’t seen conclusive results after the surgery.
When asked about Jackson during a Q&A session with his fans, he shared, “He’s good. It’s tough because the screws in his legs help straighten the leg as he grows.”
“Well, for him it might grow [an] inches per year, so it’s hard to spot and won’t be obvious for a while. [An] On an average person having the same surgery, you would notice the difference much quicker.
