Medical professionals informed the couple of a 25% chance of having a child with typical height and an equal chance of the child not surviving. Charli clarified the risk of the children inheriting both variations of dwarfism, which could be fatal. Early in pregnancy, the couple underwent genetic testing, receiving positive news. Baby Tilba, diagnosed with achondroplasia like Charli’s mother and brother, was expected to lead a healthy life despite potential spinal complications.
