tree fern

I have a very young tree fern which I cut back after it's first winter. Now all the fronds are growing from the base rather than the top so it looks like a fern bush rather than tree. Is this normal?

I've got a few tree ferns which have 'babies' at the base, maybe yours has too & these have sent new fronds up befrore the main crown at the top?
