She and husband Bill Klein, already parents to son Will, recently adopted Zoey from India -- and then received some bad news.

Arnold says in a statement:

"I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy. I am very fortunate as the prognosis is good. While there is never a good time to get news like this, getting it just as we are building our new family is tough in many ways.

But being surrounded by the love of my husband and our two beautiful children is actually in many ways giving me the strength to fight it even stronger."

The neonatologist (a pediatrician who specializes in the care of newborns) did not specify what kind of cancer she has been diagnosed with. "The Little Couple" wrapped its fifth season on Oct. 15, there is no word yet about Season 6.
