Audrey Roloff: Quitting Little People, Big World Because It’s God’s Plan?

In a heartbreaking move, Jeremy and Audrey Roloff have announced their departure from Little People, Big World.

Jer was the first to break the soul-crushing news.

Now, Audrey is thanking fans for their support — and shedding a little more insight on why they’re stepping back from the camera.

Audrey took to Instagram to repeat the news. Not everyone who follows her also follows Jer.

“In case you didn’t see our annoucement over on @jeremyroloff’s IGTV,” Audrey’s post begins.

Auj announces: “This past season was our last season of filming for Little People Big World.”

We already knew from Jeremy’s post, but … repetition doesn’t make this news any easier to swallow.

“I know it’s been a shorter run for me,” Audrey acknowledges. “For Jeremy it’s been 14 years!,”

He did, in part, grow up on reality television.

Audrey continues: “but I’ve shared some pretty big life moments on #LPBW”

For example, she lists how Little People, Big World viewers got to see her go through the process of “getting engaged,”

Audrey also recalls how viewers were treated to “our wedding day.”

She mentions that she was on the show for “the launch of @beating50,” which is definitely more exciting for her than for your average viewer.

Auj recounts how fans followed her and Jeremy for “3 moves” and “a remodel.”

And of course, fans got to see her “finding out we were having a baby girl, and becoming a new mom!”

Where would any of us be without precious Ember Jean?

Audrey continues, thanking her fans: “I am so thankful for the encouragement, kindness, and support that each of you have shown to our family.”

“We are forever grateful for the run we’ve had,” she says, almost wistfully.

“But,” she says, she and Jeremy are “Excited to focus on what we feel the Lord is calling us to!”

“You guys are the most loyal fans,” Auj gushes. “Thank you for respecting our decision. And thanks to TLC for putting up with us”

She follows that with a winky-face emoticon.

Audrey wasn’t done, however. She had another major shout-out.

“Mostly, I am so proud of my husband,” she writes.

“Who has grown up in the public eye and yet remained grounded, wise, and steadfast in his faith.”

Growing up in the public eye can be a challenge, but we’re not sure how it would challenge his faith or wisdom.

Unless … was this some sort of jab at the agnostic Jacob Roloff?

“This decision is one that I respect him for immensely,” Audrey says. “‘Here’s hail to the rest of the road!’ I love you Farmer.”

Audrey, an outspoken Christian, then cites:

“Psalm 20:7 #journeyofjerandauj #beating50percent”

Psalm 20:7 refers to how some may trust in mundane things of the world to see them on their journeys, but Christians trust in their God.

Appropriate, given the subject matter.

Though, with Audrey’s phrasing, some fans may be asking themselves — did Audrey and Jeremy quit the show because they believe that God wanted them to?

Audrey and Jeremy Roloff: 19 Moments We’ll Never, Ever Forget

Audrey and Jeremy Roloff have said their farewell.

The couple has confirmed that it will not return for a new season of Little People, Big World.

"After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come," wrote Jeremy to open this announcement to fans, adding:

"A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last. It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride."

Before we say goodbye to Jeremy and Audrey for good, however, let's pause and take a look back at how far we've come with them.

Below, we've rundown a series of the most memorable moments, photos and stories from their time as cast members on Little People, Big World…

1. Where It All Began…

Amazing roloff throwback
Wow, right?!? On the very first ever episode of Little People, Big World, we met a teenage Jeremy, who was living on the farm with his parents, younger siblings and twin brother Zach. What a photo.

2. Their Sweet Sixteen

Gone old school
Jeremy and Zach celebrated the big birthday with their closest friends on a beach trip to remember, one filmed years ago for an episode of Little People, Big World.

3. The Graduation

Jer grads
Remember when Jeremy graduated from high school? He was uncertain about his future at the time, but had the full support of his parents.

4. The Proposal

She does
On September 3, 2014, TLC viewers got to witness the very romantic way Jeremy proposed, something Audrey actually referenced recently.

5. The Wedding

On the knot
Jeremy and Audrey get married in a gorgeous ceremony on Roloff Farms. The ceremony took place on September 20, 2014 and it aired in March of the following year. (Audrey looks beautiful!)

6. The Announcement

Announced
Audrey and Jeremy told their family they were expecting, not long after Zach told them the same exact thing. “Wow, I’m going to be a grandpa times two!’ Matt Roloff said on air, adding that Jeremy’s news made him feel “overwhelmed” and “kinda hit by a freight train.”

Jeremy and Audrey Roloff Announce Departure from Little People, Big World

In a word? Wow.

In another two words? Gosh darn.

On Monday afternoon, Jeremy Roloff took to his Instagram account and delivered some unexpected and unfortunate news to fans…

… he and wife Audrey Roloff are leaving the show that made them famous.

This will be their final season on Little People, Big World.

So Jeremy announced on social media today, much to the shock and sadness of his millions of fans.

“This is an announcement concerning Jeremy Roloff and his family specifically,” opens Jeremy’s caption, which was posted alongside the photo above.

The father of one continued:

“After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come.

“A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last. It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride.

“We have the most loyal fans on TV and we appreciate every one of you. You are what made doing this so fun.

“We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically – the show must go on!”

That’s some good news, at least.

We’ve actually been speculating for awhile that Little People, Big World may soon come to an end because Matt Roloff is moving to Arizona and Amy Roloff has expressed interest in moving on from the farm as well.

Various family members appear to be going in various directions.

And, let’s face it, the show has been on for so long that it’s already set a Guiness World Record.

It’s simply bound to end at some point.

Jeremy, meanwhile, continued as follows:

“[This] being said, we’re not disappearing. We have a lot of exciting stuff in the works and are eager to continue the work that the Lord has called us to!”

It’s true:

Jeremy and Audrey have a book coming out early next year that will chroncile their love, their lives and offer advice to their many supporters.

“Again, we thank you, and always enjoy when we get a chance to meet one of you,” added Jeremy.

“Whether it be in the airport, on the street, at pumpkin season or at one of our upcoming Beating50percent events! THANK YOU for all the love and support.

“Your messages, comments, gifts, and mail are noticed and appreciated. You guys are the best. Thank you for respecting our decision.”

Always honest and always grateful, Jeremy made a point of acknowledging producers and all those behind the scenes that made his success possible:

“I also want to give a big thank you to the team at TLC,” he concluded.

“Thanks for putting up with us;) You’ve provided us with a grand opportunity and for that we are forever grateful.”

Audrey is yet to comment on her departure.

Two years ago, Jacob Roloff also left the series, while Molly Roloff has chosen to live a life outside of the spotlight.

This leaves Amy, Matt, Zach and Tori as the main Roloffs supposedly interested in continuing on with the program.

Will TLC green light a season without Jeremy and Audrey?

Might the cameras follow around Zach, Tori and their son Jackson in a spinoff?

It’s too early to say for certain.

But this much we can say for certain:

We’ll miss you, Audrey and Jeremy. Thank you for the memories.

Audrey Roloff Posts Extra Special Photo, Explains Why

Audrey Roloff has proven already that she can sum up her love for Jeremy Roloff in three sentences.

But the Little People, Big World star uses a few more than that in her latest Instagram caption, taking followers through a special romantic journey that focuses entirely on a…

… trestle?

Yes, a trestle.

We’ll go ahead and let Audrey explain.

“See that back there? That’s our trestle,” she wrote to open a message that accompanied this sweet family photo, explaining further as follows:

“The spot where we first expressed our feelings for each other, the spot where I became Daisy Braids, the spot Jeremy asked me to be his girlfriend, the spot where we threw our shoes to timestamp the summer of 2011, the spot where we had some hard tearful conversations, the spot where Jeremy proposed, and the spot where I prayed the morning of our wedding.”

Wow. 

That’s quite a lot of things to happen in one spot, huh?

If you’re wondering why Audrey may be feeling so sentimental at the moment, especially when it comes to her marriage, it’s because she and Jeremy are getting set to release a memoir.

It will chronicle their unique story.

And it will also offer some insight into how they approached their romance and how they think others ought to approach romance.

“Jeremy and I are advocates for being friends first,” Audrey writes in excerpts that have leaked online, adding in the wildly-anticipated book:

“Friendship lays the groundwork for pursuit…. If you start by building a friendship, the kind of man you want to marry will be empowered to pursue you.

“He will be willing to risk rejection, determined to be thoughtful and he will text you first, at least the majority of the time.”

It’s an interesting take on love.

We’re not here to judge it really, just to pass it along.

Audrey, meanwhile, went on to tell followers just where she and her husband are standing in that first photo published above — and why the spot holds such significance.

“4 years ago my parents moved from the house I grew up in and bought the property in the hills just above our trestle!” she says, concluding:

“God sure does have a sense of humor… This is the view from my parents backyard. The trestle. The locomotive of our love.”

Will you look at that?!?

Forget Little People, Big World. It really is a small world, isn’t it?!?

Audrey and Jeremy got married on September 20, 2014.

The beloved reality stars welcomed daugher Ember into the world almost exactly three years later, with Audrey recently making us cry when writing about her child on Instagram.

This is what she wrote:

You are pure joy. Your dimples and that scrunched nose smile, your cute little wrist wave, watching you eat watermelon, your determination, the baby grunts, how your whole body tenses up with excitement when when Pine the kitty walks in the room, your slobbery open mouth kisses, your belly laugh when Dad plays peekaboo with you, the way you cuddle your fox stuffed animal and burrow your head in my chest when you’re tired.

It’s all just too much to handle.

Grace upon grace. You are the biggest blessing and the sweetest girl Ember Jean. I love you always, always more.

Audrey Roloff Shares Candid Family Portrait, Leaves Followers AWWW-Inspired

Audrey Roloff is here to keep it real, folks.

Say what you want about the Little People, Big World cast member, but Audrey really can be counting on to pretty much always do just that.

Even when it means she takes grief for saying something truly controversial, such as feeding your baby formula is a sin.

The TLC star didn’t get nearly as scandalous with her latest Instagram post, however.

She didn’t get scandalous at all, in fact.

She just got all cute and comfortable and cozy with the two people who matter most in her life: husband Jeremy and daughter Ember.

“We woke up like this,” Audrey wrote as a caption to the photo above, adding in more detail:

“Just thought I’d keep it real and throw this photo in your feed to add some variety to all the cute 4th of July pics. We camped out on the farm last night.

“It was our first time sleeping in a tent with Ember and she was a happy camper!”

As she so often does, Roloff concluded by tossing in the following hashtags: #journeyofjerandauj #emberjean #beating50percent.

Audrey and Jeremy have both been very generous with their Ember Jean photos.

The child was born in September and the entire family needed a bit of time to adjust initially, with Audrey admitting that breastfeeding was both challenging and painful for awhille.

But she always had Jeremy’s support.

And husband and wife communicated well throughout, remaining there for each other at all times and, of course, there for their daughter as well.

Upon Ember turning nine months old, Jeremy shared a photo on Instagram and wrote the following:

I’ve realized that kids give you something to measure time with. And in measuring time, I realize how quickly it goes. Reminds me yet again of one of my favorite quotes: “how we spend our days, is of course, how we will spend our lives.”

Just a reminder to live the day how you’d like to live your life.

Pretty great stuff, right?

Audrey, meanwhile, has been extremely candid not just with first-thing-in-the-morning photos, but also about what she had learned as a mother.

“Motherhood has taught me focus less on body-image and more on being an image-bearer,” Roloff opined, for example, adding:

“I am also now capable of getting myself ready in less than 5 mintes, which is an added bonus.”

She also formerly wrote about the concept of “grace,” specifically:

“Motherhood has taught me to give myself loads of grace for all the things I see other mothers doing that make me feel less-than.”

Audrey is also aware that she’ll face judgments for her actions, especially as a public figure, but she can’t let them get to her.

“I’m learning that people will always critcize what you’re doing wrong (they might even write you letters with lists of things you should or shouldn’t be doing),” she once wrote, concluding:

“But I’m not letting that make me bitter, I’m letting it make me brave.”

Amen, Auds.

Keep sharing those pics please! We love em!

Jeremy Roloff and Audrey Roloff Book Title, Excerpts: Leaked Online!

We have an update on the book Jeremy Roloff and Audrey Roloff teased to their social media followers in March.

And it’s a rather HUGE update.

Earlier this year, the Little People, Big World stars excitedly told fans about this very cool project, explaining that they “have received thousands of comments, messages, and e-mails containing questions about dating, long distance, purity, conflict, love, and how we prepared for marriage.”

So they decided to do something helpful with all of these notes.

They decided to write a book!

“The book is essentially our love story,” Audrey explained at the time, adding:

“We are spilling never before told tales from our dating journey, and all the ups and downs and ins and outs of our love story…

“We cant wait to share what we’ve learned from our own dating journey in order to equip our readers to build Godly relationships from their first date to “I do” and beyond.”

Aside from announcing a multi-week social media hiatus to complete this manuscript, neither Audrey nor Jeremy has said much about it…

… until now!

First, we can confirm that the memoir/self-help book will be titled “In A Love Letter Life” and it will be released in April of 2019.

Second, in her most recent Instagram Story, Audrey filmed a video of her computer screen, exposing some of the writing from this book and captioning the footage:

“Pushing hard to get this thing done on time.”

What did the footage reveal?

It appears as if one section will be advice from Audrey on how to land an awesome husband such as Jeremy.

“Jeremy and I are advocates for being friends first,” Roloff writes, explaining:

“Friendship lays the groundwork for pursuit. All the single ladies, volume up. You’re not giving a man the chance to pursue you if you’re the one doing the chasing, chances are the guy you’re after does not want to be caught.”

Audrey has often felt comfortable giving marital advice, although she’s sometimes gotten criticized for trying to profit off of it.

Adds the TLC star in this portion:

“If you start by building a friendship, the kind of man you want to marry will be empowered to pursue you. He will be willing to risk rejection, determined to be thoughtful and he will text you first, at least the majority of the time.

“Our period of friendship gave Jeremy the opportunity to pursue me.”

There’s something a little antiquated and even sexist about this, as Audrey states that a woman should never be aggressive, that she should turn dating into some kind of game.

It’s 2018. Are we really arguing that men need to always text a woman first?

Roloff goes on to give a very specific account of her first date with Jeremy in the book.

Fans can expect it to follow the sort of Instagram posts she’s often published over the years, many of which adhere to her Christian beliefs and her strict views on dating/marriage.

For example, after Jacob Roloff got engaged late last year, Audrey seemed to actually shade her brother-in-law for moving too quickly with his girlfriend.

She appeared to essentially judge the couple for having premarial sex.

“Some words on dating from a Christian perspective,” she wrote at the time, standing on her pedestal and adding:

“Let’s just say you recently hurried into a relationship, dabbled with sexual intimacy, and then became emotionally attached.

“The main problem with this scenario is that it blinds you to red flags. It’s the classic ‘love at first sight’ trap. You begin to see the person you are dating as the ‘the most talented, most interesting, and most extraordinary person in the universe.

“As time passes, your friends and family may raise concerns about the person you’re dating, but you won’t be able to rationalize with them because all you will see is perfection.

“This is a titanic problem.”

In other words:

Once you have sex with someone, you’ll never be able to see his or her flaws because your mind will be consumed with lust. You’ll just be thinking about the awesome intercourse and you’ll be unable to think rationally.

That’s an interesting take, we guess.

Do you agree with it?

And will you buy Audrey and Jeremy’s book?

Audrey Roloff is Actually Getting Dragged for This Photo of Ember

If this photo doesn’t make your day I don’t know what will.

This is what Audrey Roloff wrote as a caption to the following photograph:

Makes perfect sense, right?

It’s an image of her husband and her daughter, both looking as happy and as cute as can be.

This is the Internet, however.

And a bunch of Instagram trolls somehow managed to take a look at this precious photo and come up with reasons why Audrey ought to be ashamed of it.

Here is a sampling of what some critics have said about it:

You would think her mother would have put a cute top on her.

[Ember] might be cold while dad is wearing a long shirt and long trousers!

Cute photo, but I would have never put my daughter’s pictures on social media without a top. Too many weirdos now a days. You gotta be afraid.

We’ve asked this question many times before and we’re sure we’ll ask it again, but…

… what is wrong with people?!?

Who could look at that adorable image of a father and his young child and criticize the latter for her fashion; and/or think any sort of thoughts regarding nudity simply because she’s wearing a diaper.

That’s totally bonkers in our book.

Just about two months ago, Audrey came under similar scrutiny for posting pictures of Ember on the beach.

Once again, to nearly any rational person, these were simply cute snapshots of a proud mother and her very cute eight-month old.

Yet Ember wasn’t wearing any clothing… and that was enough to get dumb people all up in arms, once again hurling major shade at the Little People, Big World star.

Oh, and her husband, too!

Jeremy Roloff also heard it from Internet users for a picture of his daughter and his hand.

Yes, his hand.

See, in THIS PHOTO, Jeremy is hoising his child up, propping her within some foliage for a pretty cool and artistic snapshot.

That was our take at least.

But others chimed in and referred to the pose as “creepy” because Jeremy is holding his daughter by her crotch.

And let’s be honest: it says a whole lot more about the people who thought in this way than he did about Jeremy for doing something 100% normal and natural and harmless.

Audrey and Jeremy got married in September of 2014; revealed their pregnancy in February of 2017; and welcomed Ember into the world in September of last year.

She was over a week late, which must have really sucked for Audrey.

The pair told Us Weekly shortly afterward that they chose the name Ember because “campfires have been a big part of our love story.”

How sweet, right?

Audrey Roloff Flaunts Post-Baby Body, Hangs with Family

Audrey Roloff often gives advice on using one’s faith to enhance’s one’s life, talking about God and marriage and committment and priorities.

And that’s all well and good and certainly important.

But following the release of a couple recent photos, some Instagram followers would prefer different advice from the Little People, Big World star.

Specifically, many now want to know the following:

How did you get back into such great shape after having a baby?!?

The popular reality star welcomed daughter Ember Jean into the world last September.

She has since published quite a few (hundred) pictures of her precious child, providing followers with helpful updates about Ember’s preferences, movements and more.

She’s also published a couple snapshots of her impressively taunt tummy, though, such as this one of Audrey and her immediate family on the beach.

“Wow! You look amazing after giving life to your beautiful baby!” one user wrote in response to the picture linked to above, asking:

“Any health and fitness tips?”

And now we have a feeling similar questions will be posed due to the posting of the following snapshot:

This one was placed on Amy Roloff’s Instagram page by the family matriarch herself, as she apparently enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon at the pool with her son, daughters-in-law and other loved ones.

Captioned Amy:

“And this relaxing joy filled Sunday ended w/ Family & friends & cousins and babies. A day like this is perfect.”

It really does appear to be.

Amy herself did not don a two-piece, despite the praise Audrey received, but she did pose for a rather adorable photo with grandkids Ember and Jackson.

Take a look at these two cuties, won’t you?!?

Both Amy and her ex-husband Matt are fortunate that they get to spend so much time with their relatives.

Sons Jeremy and Zach both live very close to their parents, while Jacob often stops by the family farm and even Molly is just a few hours away.

We’re actually not sure just where these photos were taken, but does it really matter?

We’re just glad Audrey and Jeremy (below, flaunting his own body!) and Tori Roloff, among others, were able to enjoy some much-deserved rest and relaxation.

There have been rumblings of late, meanwhile, that Little People, Big World may soon go off the air.

Those who watch it on a weekly basis must be aware of the tension between Matt and Amy, the former of whom is even moving to Arizona for at least part of the year.

The series has had a great, lengthy run, so we’d understand if TLC finally pulls the plug at some point or if various family members no longer wish to participate.

But it’s also hard to find a wholesome program such as this these days, with episodes mostly centered on solid relationships between cast members, not fighting and arguing and whatever crazy scandals the women of Teen Mom 2 have going on at the moment.

So we hope it sticks around.

Don’t you agree?

Audrey Roloff: LOOK! My Precious Baby is 9 Months Old!

Thank you, Audrey Roloff!

On the occasion of this Little People, Big World's daughter turning nine months old, this veteran reality star has once again shared an extensive update about her only child.

Moreover, Audrey has shared a number of new photos!

They are so cute and so precious and we're so grateful that Audrey and husband Jeremy have been so open with pictures and information about their firstborn.

We really do feel like we know her well!

Ready to get to know her even better, though? Let's do this down below!

1. Sorry I’m Late This Month!

Ember at 9 months
Audrey has always provided us with interesting updates, but she was a bit late this time around, saying to open her caption to this post: “Every month I’m a little later in taking/posting this photo butttt our precious little girl is 9 months old now!!! Her dimples are even sweeter and she is just so full of joy.”

2. So… What’s the Latest?

Ember jean on instagram
“She smiles at anyone who looks her way and loves making new friends,” Audrey said at the first of many revelations about her growing child.

3. SMOOCH!

Audrey and ember audrey and ember
“She grunts, and claps, and just started giving kisses – or at least we are receiving them as kisses, it could also be that she wants to put her mouth on absolutely everything,” adds Audrey, making us laugh.

4. So… Many… Chompers!

Loving daughter time
Continues Audrey: “I guess that’s what happens when you’re working on 6 teeth at the same time! She loves peek-a-boo, cheese, and reading books with mom and dad.”

5. Gotta Keep an Eye On Her!

Jeremy roloff and cute child
At all times, it sounds like, based on what else Audrey had to say here: “She walks around the coffee table and sometimes tries to balance on her own, but is still very keen on crawling (and she is VERY fast).”

6. A Little Help, Please

Audrey jer ember
Roloff actually stopped for a minute and asked for some advice from her fellow parents, based on something else Ember has been doing: “She learned to climb the stairs though so… baby gate reccomendations [sic] anyone?”

Audrey Roloff Says ALL the Nice Things About Jeremy on Father’s Day

It doesn’t take a special occasion for Audrey Roloff to say something specil about Jeremy Roloff.

The Little People, Big World star loves almost nothing more than gushing over her husband on Instagram.

She went overboard on Jeremy’s birthday, labeling Jeremy as more than she could have ever imagined, and then jumped on social media once again yesterday to basically reiterate this point.

Yesterday, of course, was Father’s Day.

You likely took note of the many messages posted throughout the day on your Facebook page, right?

For Jeremy and Audrey, this was the former’s very first Father’s Day, courtesy of the latter giving birth to the couple’s daughter back in September.

As a result, Audrey had especially kind things to say about her soulmate on Instagram.

“Happy Father’s Day to you @jeremyroloff!” she wrote to open a caption that accompanied the photo above.

It continued:

“I love watching you play with, teach, and cuddle our daughter. I feel undeserving and honored to be married to a man so eager to become a Godly husband and father.”

Audrey and Jeremy got married on September 20, 2014.

They became first-time parents almost exactly three years later.

Those who watch Little People, Big World online or who follow either of their social media accounts are well aware of how much they adore young Ember Jean.

Audrey, meanwhile, was not finished with her praise.

“You work hard to protect and provide for our family, you lead us in faith and with discernment, you make us laugh, and you pursue the Lord above all else,” wrote the excited wife, concluding:

“I’m excited to watch how fatherhood continues grow you. Thank you especially for all the extra help and patience you’ve had with me this past week. I love you. Ember loves you.”

Roloff tacked on the hashtags #journeyofjerandauj #morethanoils to her caption as well.

Jeremy and Audrey took a brief social media hiatus a few weeks ago because they were completeing the manuscript for their first-ever book.

Yes, we said… book!

Details remain a little fuzzy, but it sounds as if this famous couple will be releasing a memoir that chronicles their life and love story over the years.

“We are spilling never before told tales from our dating journey, and all the ups and downs and ins and outs of our love story,” Audrey wrote at one point about it, elaborating as follows:

“The pages are filling up with our failures and successes, what we learned from dating and long distance, and how we prepared more for our marriage than our wedding.

“We can’t wait to share what we’ve learned from our own dating journey in order to equip our readers to build Godly relationships from their first date to “I do” and beyond.

Consider us intrigued.

We’re extra curious to see what this memoir entails because, forgive the obvious pun, but Audrey and Jeremy’s lives already seem like an open book.

What else could they have to share with us?

We’ll be curiousto find out.

And we wish all the dads out there a very happy Belated Father’s Day as well!
