Zachary Roloff Biography (Age & Height)
Zachary Roloff was born at Oregon USA as the son of Matt Roloff, and Amy Roloff on his date of birth is May 10, 1990. He grew up with three siblings, twin Jeremy Roloff, sister Molly Roloff, and brother Jacob Roloff. His parents parted their ways in March 2014.
Both his parents, as suggested by the title of their reality show, are little people. His father has diastrophic dysplasia while his mother was born with achondroplasia, a condition where a person’s arms and legs are disproportionate with his torso.
Zach, who stands at the height of 4’2 inches, is the only among his siblings who was born with achondroplasia like his mother, along with some other health complications which he was able to overcome.
He was a strong soccer player but was forced to stop for a couple of years due to his small size and health issues. He was later able to return to play in high school which he graduated in 2009. After high school, he went on to coach his younger brother's soccer team.
