After an interval of almost six months, TLC‘s 7 Little Johnstons finally returned on the screen with its first episode being premiered on December 29, 2000.
The previous iteration of the show followed the lives of the Johnston family, a family of seven including patriarch Trent, the matriarch Amber, and their five kids Jonah, Anna, Elizabeth, Joseph, and Emma, all of whom suffered from achondroplasia dwarfism. And this season will be no different.
That being said, a lot of interesting stories are expected to be told including Amber’s workplace experience at Washburn & Associates as a realtor.
This wiki will be all about the matriarch herself. From Amber’s general wikis to net worth and dating life — the article has it all.

Amber Johnston Bio: Parents, Siblings, Was She Adopted?

Amber Johnston Weight Loss, Height
Like other members of her family, Amber Johnston stood no taller than 4 feet. In fact, her precise height as of January 2021 was 4 feet.
Weight was never an issue for Amber until the back injury in 2016 limited her mobility and she started gaining weight. For the back treatment, Amber went ahead with spinal surgery. The surgery instead restricted her from doing any physical activity.
The 7 Little Johnstons star continued to gain weight until 2020. During the quarantine period, Amber Johnston had achieved a weight loss of almost 30 pounds with the help of physical exercises.
Social Media Reach: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter
Amber Johnston was an easy woman to be found on social media. Some information about her could be found on 7 Little Johnston’s official Instagram and Twitter handle. Besides, she also had her own personal Facebook handle, which boasted over 28 thousand followers.
Amber Johnston Net Worth, Job, 7 Little Johnstons
After receiving her education from Georgia College & State University, Amber did not immediately enter the job market.
For a long time, while her kids were growing up, Amber stayed busy at home taking care of her children. But, as all of her kids were either getting prepared for their university days or approaching their high school life, Amber started working as a realtor for Washburn & Associates in July 2016.
Moreover, Amber’s kids Alex and Emma even made a commercial for their mom with the slogan “Little mama sells big houses”. Even though Washburn & Associates did not actually use it, it showed how much support Amber had from her kids.
That being said, at one point in the show Amber and her husband Trent discussed the possibility of starting their own business with their kids. It might not be very long before Amber even takes the responsibility of a business owner on her shoulder.
Furthermore, it’s worth mentioning that Amber Johnston served as the head of Girl Scouts and the local Parent-Teacher Association in the past. Her net worth was reported to be around $1 million as of January 2020.
Amber & Trent Johnston: Dating, Wedding, Kids
While it was not a big deal to cope with life for Amber’s husband Trent since he was born in a family of dwarfs, the situation was quite different for Amber. The moment she found out that she was the only dwarf in the family, she started seeing dwarfs as her close ones.
As a teen, Amber went to a lot of dwarf people’s conventions. That was where she first met her now-husband, Trent. The pair did dating for almost three and a half years before they took their relationship to next level by tying the wedding knot on November 21, 1998.
Unaware if their child would also have achondroplasia dwarfism, they first learned that their first kid, Jonah, a son, would indeed suffer from the rare condition at the 31st week of pregnancy.
Their second child, Elizabeth, a daughter was born out of a dangerous pregnancy. Dangerous to the extent that Amber’s hips routinely became dislocated.
Mindful of the fact that she could not tolerate another pregnancy, the Johnstons couple turned toward adoption.
The adorable pair adopted a four years old Anna from Russia, a 6 months old Alex from South Korea, and 5 years old Emma from China.
