The couple, both devoted Christians, were waiting until they were married before living together and having sex and hope to have children in the future.
Chloe said: “We decided to wait until after the wedding because it would be a fresh new start for both of us and because of the belief and the faith we’ve grown up with.”
The pair say that they plan on starting a family, despite there being an increased risk of having a baby with dwarfism if Chloe also carries the gene.
Chloe said: “Family is the key that we can’t wait to have.
“We don’t have any concerns if there’s a chance of having a baby in Jay’s position.
“I’m not even prepared to take the test to see if I have the gene because I think that at the end of the day it won’t change my mind about having kids either way.
“We would love it the same as any other baby that we would have.”

James may have Diastrophic Dysplasia, but Chloe says: “There may be a 2ft height difference but when you are in love little things like that don’t matter.”

Trainee teacher Chloe, said: “There may be a 2ft height difference but when you are in love little things like that don’t matter.”
Though they have warmed up to James, not everyone in Chloe’s family was initially as enthusiastic about her choice of partner.
Mom Sarah said: “She told me she was going out with him and I wasn’t happy particularly. I was saying: ‘Chloe he is a dwarf’.
“But as I got to know him I just look at him and see Jay – not anything else.
