If anyone knows how to be an amazing husband, dad, and all round first-class family man, it’s Bill Klein.

The Little Couple star turned 41 yesterday, and to celebrate his birthday he’s sharing a few of his top tips on how to be as awesome as he is—lesser men, please take note.

Little Couple Is Back! SuperDad Bill Klein And Jen Arnold Are ALL About The Kids!

Despite running a successful pet store business, Bill always manages to put family first, and has perfected the art of balancing his career obligations with time for his two adorable children, son, Will, and daughter, Zoey, as well as always being there for his pediatric doctor wife, Jen Arnold.

As Popdust previously reported, the past couple of years have been tough for the Klein family—Jen was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at the tail end of 2013, and had to undergo a grueling chemotherapy regime—all while dealing with the arrival of Zoey, whom the couple adopted from India.

Bill was at Jen’s side throughout the entire ordeal, despite dealing with his own health problems—which culminated in him undergoing surgery earlier this year.

Throughout their struggles, the two parents always managed to maintain a bright outlook, and made sure their two children remained healthy, happy and balanced—no mean feat given the often trying circumstances.

So, how does super dad Bill manage it all?

Here’s his 8 top tips for being a first class family man:

Be a solid caretaker:

While Jen was undergoing treatment, and resting up during her subsequent recovery, Bill totally stepped up to the plate, and was her rock throughout. He never showed any signs of fear, despite it being a truly terrifying time for the two of them—he just rolled up his sleeves and took care of business. Bill took on the bulk of parenting duties, and even planned a super special celebration to mark the end of Jen’s chemo treatments.

Find time for romance:

The couple first met at a hospital when Bill was 10 and Jen was 9, and have now been married for over six years—but, that doesn’t mean they take each other for granted. Bill always manages to find time for romance, and does everything in his power to make Jen feel as special and cherished as she did on the day they wed. Earlier this year, while on vacation for Jen’s birthday, Bill planned a surprise wedding vow renewal ceremony, complete with rose petals, specially written vows, and some really serious bling.

"I love you more now than I have before, and I didn't think that was possible, and I am in for the long haul,” Bill vowed to Jen, as we all reached for the tissues.

Know how to celebrate:

If Bill ever decides to throw in the day job, he would be super successful as an event planner! When it comes to celebrating, Bill really knows how to throw a party, and he makes sure every single family milestone is marked with a good old fashioned friends and family get together.

Make time for father-son (and father-daughter) bonding:

Bill is an awesome dad to both kids, whom he loves equally as much—but, you see him really come into his own when he gets to do “guy stuff” with little Will. The father-son duo go camping together, wrestle around, fish, and just hang out and play. There’s a reason Bill has that “dad of the year” title….

Be a fun dad, but teach kids discipline:

Despite being a fun dad, Bill doesn’t shirk from disciplining the children when needed—and, he’s a veritable virtuoso when it comes to managing meltdowns and temper tantrums. Always patient and calm, Bill manages to walk the perfect line of loving parent and disciplinarian.

Balance work and family:

Bill is super aware that having two adopted children from overseas can take even more work than having biological kids, especially when it comes to bonding.

"I feel like there's an obligation to create this bond more quickly,” Bill admits.

To achieve his aim,  Bill makes sure he spends as much time with Will and Zoe as is humanly possible.

Sitting Down Like A Family:

If there’s one thing that really stands out when it comes to Bill and Jen’s relationship, it’s their ability to work as a team. They are totally equal when it comes to all aspects of their home life—co-parenting, chores, keeping the kids safe and healthy—and, always make sure their family comes first. As part of their commitment, they strive to always eat dinner together as a family, and endeavor to spend at least one day on the weekend doing something fun for the four of them.

Have a sense of humor:

Anyone who has watched the show knows that both Bill and Jen have a wicked sense of humor. The couple know how to make each other laugh, even when times are tough, and jokester Bill always manages to make Jen smile through even the most stressful of situations.

Happy birthday Bill Klein, don’t ever change, you’re perfect as you are!

It seems like only yesterday that The Little Couple brought their son Will home from China.

But, in this week’s episode of the hit TLC show, we see Bill Klein and Dr. Jen Arnold get ready to celebrate Will’s 5th birthday—and Popdust has video.

In true Little Couple style, Bill and Jen make it all about the family, enlisting daughter Zoey to help make Will’s big day super special.

The family re-decorates Will’s room with a transportation scheme—and, as Jen says, the arts and crafts foray is all about “controlled chaos.”

However, a little sibling rivalry flares up after Zoey takes a nap in her big brother’s bed!

Meanwhile, as Jen becomes even more swamped at work, SuperDad Bill steps in to take over the party organization—deciding on a Mad Scientist theme, complete with ‘scientists’ in lab coats who run colorful science experiments.

However, Jen is soon horrified to discover that she messed up on the one birthday planning task she was allocated—by sending out the party invites, with the wrong address on them!

Oh boy!

Will the party guests arrive in time to celebrate with Will?

The Little Couple is back for the second half of their hit TLC show's seventh season—and, don't know about you, but we can't wait!

Dr. Jen Arnold is now entering her second cancer free year (yay!) and hubby Bill Klein is firmly on the mend after his recent back surgery, so the two are now able to focus fully on their utterly adorable kids, son Will, 4, and daughter, Zoey, 3.

The new season promises tons of family fun, adventure and memory making experiences, in addition to all the usual laughter, awwwww worthy moments and oodles of love that we’ve come to expect from our very favorite reality TV family—Popdust has a sneak peek at the premiere episode that you can watch below.

This year is also a year of firsts for the family, with Will taking his first karate lesson (could he be any darn cuter in his little karategi?!!!), Zoey starting ballet classes (could she look any more precious?!!) and the family adopting again—this time round it’s a little less stressful though than the past two adoptions, as these new additions are some pet fish!

Meanwhile, Will and Zoey continue to make great strides at school, with steady progress in both their speech and language skills—and Bill does his best to maintain his “super dad” status despite his medical limitations.

And, after having successfully battled through all the stress of the whirlwind past year, Bill and Jen take a little time out for some much deserved R&R, and get to spend some quality time together in the Big Apple.

However, in true Little Couple style, things are about to get hectic once again, as Bill and Jen get ready for the release of their new book, Life Is Short (No Pun Intended), which goes on sale the same day as the season seven B premiere.

In the book, the couple gives an insider’s account on how they met, fell in love and overcame life’s toughest challenges to get to where they are now – happy and successful parents and professionals.

Watch the sneak peek video below—check out Popdust’s gallery of photos—and tune into TLC at 9/8c to catch the season premiere of The Little Couple.

It’s hard to believe, let alone handle, that the “season finale” of The Little Couple is already here—so, we’re going to follow Dr. Jen Arnold’s lead, and call it the “mid-season finale” instead!

That sounds soooooo much better doesn’t it? As, it implies there will be yet more Little Couple wonderfulness just right around the corner…..

Well, TLC has yet to announce a date for new episodes, which is made all the more unbearable considering the dramatic note we are ending on right now—as, in tonight’s episode, we see Dr. Jen go into “survival mode” —putting her very best brave (but beautiful as ever) face on as hubby Bill Klein heads to surgery—Popdust has sneak peek video.

Surgery is a daunting enough prospect for anybody, any day of the week—but, when you factor in that it’s spine surgery, and you are a person who has already undergone more surgeries than anybody should be forced to endure, many of them unsuccessful—and you get a bit clearer an idea of the emotional turmoil Jen and Bill are experiencing.

“I’m concerned things could not go the right way, I’ve had more surgeries that have not worked than that have…and it’s spine surgery,” Bill explains. “It’s possible that I become paralyzed, but you can never tell, it’s surgery,….it’s the practice of medicine..it’s not perfect and I get that.”

Ever the amazing father and husband that he is though, Bill, as usual, is thinking first and foremost of his adorable kids, Will, 4, and Zoey, 3, and wife Jen, over his own personal needs.

“If I were to have something bad happen during the surgery that incapacitated me, or worse, then I would hate to not be there for my kids,” he says.

“I have so much more to be there for….and not just the responsibility, but all the wonderful things that come along with being a parent…. and being a husband, and all these wonderful moments that I would hate to miss, or to have change…. because of my circumstances.”


Meanwhile, Dr. Jen—who has just gone through her own grueling medical ordeal, battling a rare form of cancer and kicking its damn ass to touch—opens up about her emotional state, and worries.

“The loss of control is very frustrating, and I think for me, right now, I’m just going to go into my survival mode,” Jen says. “The last time Bill had surgery, I cried, I lost my cool for a minute…. they wheeled him away and I just started falling…..

“I don’t know why I didn’t do that this time. I mean, I felt like that inside….. I felt like just losing my mind… it’s almost like it’s too hard to cry anymore….maybe that’s where I’m at right now… this year has been so much, it’s almost like I can’t even allow myself to break down. All you can do is keep going until you can’t go anymore. And you have to stay tough and you have to stay focused. I can’t cry… I’ve just got to be as strong as i can…..until I know it’s all better.”

Stay strong beautiful Dr. Jen! And, Bill, we will see you on the other side!

The Little Couple’s adorable daughter, Zoey Klein is turning three!

Dr. Jen Arnold and hubby, Bill Klein, have a lot to celebrate and it’s all fun and games as they get ready to throw a very special birthday party for their very special little girl—Popdust has sneak peek video.

Bill is waiting to undergo back surgery, but that doesn’t stop him from being an awesome dad and engaging in a little “anwich” with Zoey and her super cute big brother, Will Klein.

For those not in the know, “anwich” is Will’s play-speak for a Klein family sandwich—which, involves Bill laying on the floor pretending to be a piece of bread, Will climbing on top as the meat and Zoey piling on top of Will for the final bread slice.

It’s no wonder both kids love their daddy!

Meanwhile, Bill’s back problems mean Jen has to call in a couple of beefy dudes to help her organize the garage—but, don’t feel sorry for the mom-of-two, what we may see as a pain in the ass chore, is Jen’s Kryptonite!

“I do love to organize,” Jen admits, flashing her beautiful, trademark, toothy grin. “I have to say it definitely is a passion…. and, at some times, it might be an obsession. I could stay up all night and organize a closet. It’s pretty much as much fun as going out and having a glass of wine.”

Dr. Jen, you can come over to my place anytime—my over stuffed closets and packed full cupboards will make it like a trip to the wine country for you!
