Can two midget parents have a normal height offspring?

Can two normal height people have a midget offspring?


If midget is un-PC you can just pretend I used "dwarf" instead.

The chances are one in a million but it could happen but not very likely to occur in nature.

Yes and Yes.

Dwarfism is different than being a 'midget'.

They are two different MEDICAL conditions.

Yes, ask the parents of Little People Big World; they have at least 3 children who are regular sized.

If you ever seen Little couple or Little people big world, then you would know that the PC term is little person and dwarfism is a form of their condition but not the only form of it or name. And midget is definitely a derrogatory term that should not be used. As for them having average height childern, it is quite possible for them to do so. As I repeat if you have ever seen the show Little people big world, they are a little person couple that managed to have 3 children. A set of twin boys with one of the boys being average height and the other like them, a daughter that is also average height and a younger son that is average as well.
