Dr. Jennifer Arnold and Bill Klein of TLC's hit reality show The Little Couple, were overjoyed to meet their new daughter Zoey, 2, in India, and introduce her to son, Will, 3, who welcomed his new sister by sharing his truck, kissing her foot and forehead and showing her a book.

After months of weekly intensive chemotherapy treatment to battle a rare form of cancer, Dr. Jennifer Arnold, the reality star of TLC's The Little Couple, is sharing big, exciting news.
"I had my official last chemo treatment," says Arnold, 39. "And while I'm hesitant to say I'm cancer-free – maybe that's common for people who have had cancer – I'm doing great. Everything is moving in the right direction. I am very excited."
Her hard-fought battle with an intensive regimen of weekly drugs was a difficult struggle, often leaving the mother to newly adopted daughter Zoey, 2, and son Will, exhausted and nauseated.
