Trent and Amber Johnston are the stars of TLC’s hit reality series, ‘7 Little Johnstons’. Every member of the sizeable Johnston clan has achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism that makes normal life difficult. But Trent and Amber, who have been married for over 20 years, have made sure to raise their five kids in a way that prepares them for the tough life ahead. The parents, Amber and Trent, met 25 years ago through an organization called “Little People” and fell in love when they were just teenagers. They were instantly taken with each other and their mutual attraction led them to date for four years before committing to each other for life and getting married in 1998.
Trent and Amber have two biological kids (Jonah and Elizabeth) but after a perilous second pregnancy, the couple decided that adoption was the way to go, especially since they were aware that many children with dwarfism are put up for adoption. Trent and Amber have three adopted kids (Anna, Alex, and Emma) and all five of their children are a close-knit bunch. The Johnstons live in Forsyth, Georgia. Curious to know about how Trent and Amber Johnston made their fortune and how much their net worth is? Here’s all you need to know.
