‘7 Little Johnstons’: Alex Johnston Has Own Business – What is it?

7 Little Johnstons fans know that there’s a lot of drama in the TLC show. However, tensions seldom come from Alex Johnston. Born in 2005 in South Korea, he’s the same age as his adoptive-sister Emma, who also joined the family. Only, she came from China. Meanwhile, Alex seems to be the quietest out of all the kids.

How Does Alex Fit Into The 7 Little Johnstons Family?

Season 12 of the TLC show was recently announced. And soon, fans will see Alex and Emma decide on their careers and colleges. The following season premieres in August, and fans will see the 17-year-olds – as well as Jonah, Anna, and Liz.

In Season 11 of 7 Little Johnstons, fans saw that Alex was stressed about his schoolwork. Meanwhile, fans seldom see the quietest family member stressed much at all.

7 Little Johnstons fans will also see that Jonah, who finally found his own place, might return home because he suffers from extreme anxiety. Perhaps, if that happens, Alex might help him feel a bit calmer about life.

7 Little Johnstons – Alex is Quiet But Amber is Stressed

Unlike Anna and Liz, Alex rarely seems to get into any trouble. Additionally, he doesn’t seem to date anyone seriously. However, he scared his mom when he went for an MRI scan.

Back in 2015, he stopped breathing during the procedure, and his mom thought that he was about to die. It turns out he underwent brain surgery previously – as he suffered from brain stem compression.

There’s nothing wrong with the 7 Little Johnstons star’s brain function, though, and he works very hard in school. In fact, one of his passions is robotics.

Quietly Getting on & Earning An Income

Like Anna and Emma, the 7 Little Johnstons star runs his own Etsy store. There, he sells his origami collection. TLC fans are enamored with how well his pieces turn out, from penguins to bunnies and unicorns.

Indeed, it’s well-known that origami helps folks improve mental alertness and is often used as therapy for stroke victims. So for TLC fans, it’s quite easy to imagine Alex quietly sitting in his room making his beautiful creations. And as a bonus, he often signs his pieces for buyers.

While Alex might be the quietest member of the family, fans shouldn’t mistake that for him not enjoying life. If you watch the show, you’ll know that he’s often the kid with the biggest smile when the family enjoys celebrations and outings. And after years of watching him on TLC, many viewers admire the man he is becoming.
