When Amber Johnston was first introduced to fans as the matriarch of the Johnston household, she was a stay-at-home mom. However, fans quickly realized that she was so much more than she let on. Headstrong and inspiring, Amber is obsessed with keeping her family healthy. She is also the source of inspiration for her kids and is their number one supporter. For Amber, the end goal is to prepare her kids to take on any challenge that life might throw at them. Equipped with a positive attitude, Amber is heavily involved with the family and her community. In this article, we take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Amber Johnston.
Amber Johnston was born on the 10th of March 1979. Born to unnamed parents, Amber was one of the three siblings. Even though Amber was the only one diagnosed with dwarfism, her parents raised her the same as her siblings. Unfortunately, her mother passed away early on in Amber’s life, and she was raised by her adoptive father. While she was able to reconnect with her biological father, Amber is grateful to her adoptive father. The reality star has never dived deep into her educational background and talks very little about her early life.
Getting married and kids:
Amber met her husband Trent at a convention for Little People of America. Both were in high school, but the pair became fast friends. For over two and a half-years, the pair kept their relationship long distance. But when Amber graduated high school, she decided to move closer to Trent. The pair dated for over four years before tying the knot in the late 1990s. Soon after their marriage, Amber became pregnant and gave birth to their first child, Jonah. 2 years later, Amber was pregnant once again and gave birth to a baby girl, Elizabeth. However, during the birth of Elizabeth, Amber faced major complications. Her hips were repeatedly dislocated during the birthing process, and there was a great deal of pain involved.
After the birth of Elizabeth, Amber and Trent realized that getting pregnant once-again will only spell doom for Amber. So, the pair began the adoption process. Over the years, the family of four grew into a family of seven. The latest additions being Alex, Anna, and Emma. All three of Amber’s adoptive children come from different parts of the world. Alex was born in Seoul, South Korea, Anna comes from Siberia, and Emma comes from China.
For the most part, Amber was a stay-at-home mom committed to raising her kids to lead a happy and healthy life. But with most of her kids heading to college, Amber is gearing up for a life as a working mom. She now works as a licensed realtor for Washburn & Associates centered around Middle Georgia. With four years of experience to back her, Amber is quite good at what she does. All her kids are proud of their mother, and at one point Alex and Emma even created a commercial for their mother with their slogan, Little mama sells big houses.
Even though she is just a real estate agent as of now, Amber has plans to run a business. At one point on the show, Amber sat down her kids and discussed the possibility of starting a new business. However, as of 2020, the pair are yet to realize their business dream.
