In full confession, I have been more than a bit worried that Little Women LA’s Terra Jole would soon be revealing some tragic news about her child’s birth due to her risky pregnancy documented on this season of Little Women LA (season finale tonight!).
But – WHEW! Terra Jole and Joe Gnoffo happily announced the birth of their HEALTHY baby girl, Penelope Charlevoix Gnoffo, who was born Monday morning, weighing 6 lbs., 2 oz. All three are doing well.

Terra told People Magazine that the baby’s middle name is in reference to the the town, Charlevoix, in Michigan. “Joe and I vacationed there this summer, and my grandfather has an amphitheater named after him in downtown Charlevoix – Clarence Odmark,” she says.
Terra’s pregnancy has been a bit scary from the start due to the risk of “double dominancy” that can occur in a baby born to two parents with dwarfism, which can prove fatal. Although we now know the positive outcome of Terra & Joe’s baby journey, Lifetime will still be airing the LWLA spinoff, Terra’s Little Family premiering April 8, which will document their pregnancy journey right up to their baby girl’s birth. No word yet on whether the good news of baby Penelope’s recent birth will boost viewer numbers of the show.
And although tonight’s finale of LWLA’s baby “gender reveal” won’t be so…uh revealing anymore, we can still strap in for all of the antics leading up to this season’s wrap!
