Families on TLC are always growing (see also: The Duggar clan), and "The Little Couple" is no exception.

The stars of the show, Dr. Jennifer Arnold and Bill Klein, who are both little people, have adopted a son, People reports. The three-year-old Chinese boy also has a form of dwarfism.

"We are thrilled to announce that we have adopted a beautiful young boy from China," the couple told the magazine. "We are so proud to welcome William to our family and look forward to bringing him home."

This is especially exciting news because the past three seasons of the reality show has documented the pair's attempts at expanding their family, from fertility tests to finding a surrogate, followed by a devastating miscarriage.

"My entire life, even before I met Bill, I always thought, 'Oh, I'd love to adopt a child who is another little person,' " Arnold, a neonatologist, said on the show. "And Bill and I talked about it after we got married, and I think we both realized we both would like that."

A new season of "The Little Couple," which will follow their adoption process, premieres on TLC on April 30 at 10 p.m. ET.
