The Little Couple, a.k.a. Dr. Jennifer Arnold and Ben Klein, aren’t your typical reality TV stars. For a start, they have a lot more going on in their lives than posing for the cameras. Klein is a medical supplies provider and businessman, while Arnold has an impressive list of accolades. She has held prestigious posts as the medical director of the Simulation Center at Texas Children’s Hospital and the Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Neonatology, at Baylor College of Medicine. However, the couple are now moving on to a brand new chapter in their lives.
The Little Couple, which airs on TLC, has been running for over eight years. It began in May 2009 and followed Klein and Arnold as they embarked on their separate careers and a long-distance relationship. It was also a big success straight away, gaining high ratings and lots of fans. People loved getting a glimpse into the lives of two very accomplished people.
“We hope that this is a positive series that will show other little people you can become a doctor and you can become a business owner. You can find love. You can live happily ever after,” Arnold told the Houston Chronicle in 2009 as the series started. “It’s also important for parents to see who have kids with skeletal dysplasia.”
