According to In Touch Weekly, The Amazing Race’s Charla Faddoul,29, plans on starting a family with husband, David,35. They have decided to use IVF because there is a 50 percent chance that their child would also be born a with achondroplasia, the condition responsible for Charla’s dwarfism.

Charla says, "I am very happy with the way I am, but it is tougher being a little person  There are so many struggles in school and the many surgeries we have to endure. If there’s a way to make it possible for my child not to have achondroplasia, I would take that opportunity."
