Audrey Roloff is Here to Make You Cry. Just Click Play.

Ember Jean Roloff celebrated the biggest milestone of her young life on Monday:

She turned a year old!

The occasion was celebrated a day earlier by nearly all of Ember's friends and family members, as they turned out for a fun gathering that was highlighted by the birthday gal smashing a cake all over her hands and face.

She may have actually eaten a bit as well.

We documented a variety of scenes from the party in THIS GALLERY, but now Audrey and Jeremy Roloff have helped us share even more moments from the beautiful gathering.

They've posted a 58-second long video on their official website.

It includes many close-ups of the adorable one-year old, along with clips of her parents and other loved ones kissing, hugging or playing with Ember.

"This video… All the tears," wrote Audrey as a caption upon posting it to Instagram, adding:

"Just like the song says, you lit a fire in our hearts Ember girl. Thank you for creating something we will treasure forever uncle Jack."

Jeremy also posted it to his page, a day after writing a heartfelt letter to his child on the anniversary of her birth.

It reads as follows:

Happy 1st birthday sweet girl! A year has already passed and it feels like only a day. I love your lively demeanor and graceful spirit, your brilliant smile, big lips, and piercing eyes.

You are a masterpiece of creation and I pray that by now you know your Creator and love Him like Mom and Dad do. You are a bright light of joy to those who are shaded with the days troubles.

When work has Mom and I short tempered and high strung, you always seem to make us laugh and relax. It’s been a joy getting to know you. You’re beautiful, unique, and loved.

I’m so glad I get to be your dad. You are a gift that keeps on giving, and so I will give back with all I have.

Perfect, right?

We're sad that Jeremy and Audrey have quit Little People, Big World and that we won't be able to see Ember grow up on screen.

But we've got a feeling her mom and dad will be filling us in on their blog, on their podcast and across their social media accounts for many years to come.

Audrey Roloff Shares Ember’s Birth Story, Keeps It Very Real

Audrey Roloff is nothing if not an open book.

The former Little People, Big World cast member talks often about her faith and her family and how the two nearly always intertwine.

The mother of one also talks about parenthood on a frequent basis, ever since welcoming daughter Ember into the world in September of 2017.

Now, in a very personal and impressive blog post, Audrey has opened way up about her actual birthing experience.

It's a bit graphic in detail and you can read the full entry HERE.

But we've shared a handful of excerpts below in order to help Audrey relay her experience to the fans and followers who are either interested or who may even benefit from this kind of information…

1. This is How Audrey Opened Her Lengthy Post:

Audrey in labor
I am just now finally getting around to sharing her birth story. WOW! It has taken me an entire year to finish it. Sigh. Guess that’s just reality as a new mom, going through two remodels, writing our first book, keeping always more and beating50percent a float, while trying to maintain sanity and some resemblance of a social life. The past year has been exhausting, thrilling, tearful, and full of treasured moments. But perhaps the most treasured moment was September 10th, 2017

2. I Will Not Be Sugar Coating the Messy Reality of Birth…

On the day of embers birth
So Audrey warned, prior to getting into said details as follows: “By the time I was 10 days overdue, I was trying whatever the internet suggested about naturally inducing labor. Pineapple, spicy food, bouncing on the ball, taking baths, long walks, raspberry leaf tea, acupuncture, and sex, but still no baby. I remember reading comments on social media, and even receiving texts from friends, who had some opinions about my desire to wait for our baby to come naturally… Of course. I would not put our baby in danger if I did indeed need to be medically induced. But I also knew lots of women who were impatiently or unnecessarily induced early, and I wanted to avoid that. So I kept surrendering and trusting in God’s timing for our daughters birth.”

3. She’s Finally on the Way!

Showing off bend
“I woke up at 2:30 am to what I thought was just intense cramping. I had experienced some pretty intense cramping the past couple of nights so I didn’t think too much of it at first, but after a few minutes I quickly realized this was different. MUCH different. This was the blinding ambush. IT WAS TIME!!! I reached over into my nightstand drawer and grabbed a sharpie to write my life mantra on my arm – ALWAYS MORE. I knew that this day, more than any other day, I needed to be reminded that I ALWAYS had MORE strength, endurance, and hope through Christ.”

4. What They Decided:

Audrey roloff on the water
“Jeremy and I wanted our labor and delivery experience to be a calm, low stress, and intimate experience between the two of us. That meant no family, friends, or cameras in the delivery room. We wanted to bring our daughter into the world together without having to think or worry about anything or anyone else. Just Jeremy and I, intimately experiencing the most defining moment of our lives together.”

5. More Specifics:

Audrey and jeremy roloff on labor day
“Our birth plan was essentially to have a low-intervention, unmedicated birth at the hospital with the help of our doula Echo, essential oils, prayer, and a jammin’ Spotify playlist.”11

6. Why Did She Opt for an Unmedicated Birth?

Strong audrey
“I didn’t want labor to solely be something I went through, while Jeremy watched from a chair. I wanted for him to be an active participant. I wanted for him to feel needed and important during the whole process – and he was. Laboring with Jeremy was was the most intimate, unifying, God-empowering, thing we have ever done together.”

Audrey Roloff: God Has Taught Me THESE Life Lessons…

Audrey Roloff is a woman of very strong conviction.

She's been very open about her faith and her devotion from family from the moment she came into our lives as a cast member on Little People, Big World.

She and husband Jeremy are no longer cast members on this TLC series, having announced their departure in July.

That said… Audrey is still around, still sharing posts on Instagram and still espousing her religion.

Below, for example, Roloff delves into her belief in God and into how this Higher Power has taught her a number of life lessons.

1. Audrey’s Opening Statement

Showing off bend
“Your life has PURPOSE. Whether you can clearly define that purpose or not, God wants to purpose MORE out of your life RIGHT NOW,” Roloff wrote to open this lengthy message. “Not once you graduate, not once you’re married, not once you’re a mom, not once you get this job or move to that city. No.”

2. What Does God Want?

Strong audrey
“He wants to purpose more out of your seemingly futile daily tasks, your to-do-lists, your surface level conversations, and your day-to-day. He created you for so much MORE than just living through moments.”

3. What Else, Audrey?

Audrey roloff on the water
“He wants to fulfill His purposes through every part of your life – the big moments and the small moments, the celebratory moments and the heartbreaking moments.”

4. How Can One Figure All This Out?

Audrey and jeremy roloff on insta
Writes Audrey, acknowledging this major challege: “But discovering God’s purpose for your life can seem daunting… maybe you don’t know for certain what God has purposed you to do, or who He is purposing you to be.”

5. It Can Be So Hard to Figure It All Out

And there can be so many reasons to be confused, as Audrey also acknowledges: “Maybe you’re trying to figure it out, but you’re just not sure yet. Maybe you thought you knew, but then some life circumstance changed your course.”

6. Also, Along These Lines…

Loving daughter time
“Or maybe you have been so focused and determined in what you thought was your purpose, but now you feel like giving up because it’s still not bearing any fruit. Girl, I get you.”

Audrey and Jeremy Roloff Announce Next Career Move (And It’s a Big One!)

Audrey and Jeremy Roloff would like your attention.

The beloved couple announced last month that they were departing Little People, Big World after many years in front of the TLC camera.

But they also made it clear at the time that they would not be disappearing for very long…

… or at all, really.

And now, just over a month since they surprised fans with their departure confirmation, Audrey and Jeremy have come out with some VERY exciting news about their professional lives.

We’ll let Audrey break it, okay? 

Here she goes…

We are starting a podcast!!

Alright! Can Audrey tell us more about it? You bet she can.

Courtesy of her caption to the adorable photo above, this is what the former reality star wrote:

This has been a longgggg time coming and we are so pumped to start having some raw, unfiltered, down to earth conversations about relationships, friendships, family, entrepreneurship, running a business with your spouse, social media, fitness, marriage, faith, goal setting, hot topic issues, being new parents, our most embarrassing moments from the week and behind the scene of life with us and some of our favorite people! 

Audrey concluded this post by asking the following of fans:

What do you want us to talk about?! Comment your questions and tag someone you think we should interview.

And it didn’t take long at all for followers to respond.

“Interview someone from the Duggar family!” replied one individual, adding:

“I would love to see both of you collaborate and talk about similar beliefs and ideas. @jessaseewald @jillmdillard @jingervuolo are three women I would love to see you interview.”

Another person added: “Oh, I think interviewing @dbusby, @dpmills10, @jingervuolo, @lawbates would be awesome.”

And a third simply chimed in, “@duggarfam.”

Audrey is very open about her faith and her committment to family, that’s for sure.

And the same is often said about members of the Duggar family.

Regardless of who they host as guests, however, this is a pretty cool development for Audrey and Jeremy.

They still run the blog/business Beating50Percent and they have a book coming out in 2019. For real!

This is the cover…

… and this is what Audrey has said about it:

The book is essentially our love story. 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.

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 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.

Like we said above:

Jeremy and Audrey aren’t going anywhere.

And thank goodness for that, right?!?

Audrey Roloff’s Dangerous Driving History: REVEALED!

Audrey Roloff may be the most loving mother in Hollywood.

This is an impossible judgment to make, of course, but the point we want to make before delving into one troubling issue in regard to the ex-Little People, Big World star is this:

She clearly cares a whole lot about her daughter.

Just take one look at Audrey’s Instagram account and read a few words from her about Ember Jean and you’ll agree.

Despite this indisputable point, a handful of Internet users are suddenly concerned about Ember’s safety. And this is why:

It turns out that Roloff is a really bad driver!

Just this past week, Audrey was pulled over and cited for “distracted driving” near her home in Oregon.

According to the Washington County Police Department, officers busted Audrey on Wednesday, August 22, around 9:30 a.m. for using her cell phone while behind the wheel.

She was issued a citation,” Detective Robert Rookhuÿzen told Radar Online, adding:

“It’s illegal to operate a motor vehicle while using your mobile electronic device.”

This has become the case in many states around the country.

It makes sense from a safety standpoint, doesn’t it?

Ember was not in the vehicle at the time of this incident, which Audrey spoke openly about on Instagram.

She sounded a little bit defensive while doing so, too, we must admit, writing to fans:

“If you are holding your phone while you’re driving, even if you’re talking on speaker phone, even if you’re dialing somebody’s [number]…

“it doesn’t matter if you’re at a stoplight or if you’re just looking at your Google Maps to see where you’re going, you cannot pick up your phone while driving.”

Audrey then explained that she now knows this from experience.

“I’m telling you this because I have been in the car with lots of people who pick up their phone to type in an address for Google Maps, or change the song on Spotify, or answer a phone call, or dial the phone, even if they’re talking on speaker or Bluetooth,” she added.

“I just thought I’d pop on here and remind you all, because I was reminded today how dangerous it is to pick up your phone even for a split second.”

Meanwhile, in 2014, Audrey was also pulled over for violating the “basic speed rule,” accordingto Marion County Circuit Court documents obtained by Radar.

She pled no contest at the time and the case was dismissed after she was ordered to pay $ 260 in fines.

ALSO, however, Roloff was found guilty in 2010 “failure to obey traffic control device.”

It is not totally clear what transpired in this case, but a judge ordered her the former reality star to undergo a medical assessment and she was forced to pay $ 120 in fines.

Finally, in April of 2010, Roloff was issued a ticket for speeding.

Taken on their own, each of these incidents is not a big deal.

Even taken as a whole, they don’t exactly represent a menace to society.

But Audrey does have at least some history of driving at least a bit recklessly and she is now a mother, so she does need to be extra careful and aware.

That is all we’re saying.

Audrey and Jeremy Roloff announced last month that they will no longer appear on Little People, Big World.

But they do have a book coming out in 2019 and you’ll be hearing plenty from them moving forward.

For whatever it’s worth, Matt Roloff was arrested for drunk driving in 2007, but later found not guilty.

It was his second DUI citation in four years at the time.

Audrey Roloff Offers 3 Pieces of Advice for Working Moms

Audrey Roloff gets it, you guys.

Or you gals, to be more accurate.

She's a mother to a precious daughter named Ember and she also works: formerly as a cast member on Little People, Big World (until announcing her departure last month) and also as an author and an entrepreneur.

Roloff admits that she's learning as she goes, trying to find the proper balance between her professional life and her personal life.

But she's learned enough after about a year of parenthood to pass along some tips.

In an Instagram message Audrey posted in August of 2018, she passed along the following pieces of advice to "working moms" around the world..

1. Tip #1:

Up goes ember
Writes Audrey to open this lengthy caption, which she shared along a photo of herself and almost-one-year-old Ember: “GRACE. Give yourself loads of grace when you see all the things other mothers are doing that make me feel less-than.”

2. More on Grace:

One happy roloff
“I am constantly reminding myself that my standard for motherhood should be rooted in the Word of God NOT the world of Instagram,” concludes Amber on this topic.

3. But Hasn’t She Discussed Grace Before?

Pure joy
Yes, in February of 2018 Audrey wrote on Instagram: “”GRACE. If I had to sum up what motherhood has taught me into one word, it would be grace.

4. What Did She Mean at the Time?

A perfect setting
You tell us, Auds! “I can be pretty hard on myself, and motherhood is teaching me to give myself grace in the moments when I feel unequipped, ill prepared, or like I don’t measure up. On the days when I discover I haven’t been doing something that everyone else seems to be doing, grace. When my ideals don’t fit to reality, grace. When I’m overwhelmed by all the conflicting research on all the hot button issues, grace. When I start to compare myself to the other mama warriors out there, grace. When I get criticized and accused, grace.”

5. A Final Word on Grace

Smiling mom and daughter
Also from this February 2018 post: “When I realize I’m not the kind, patient, and loving wife intend to be, grace. When I get down on myself for working too much or not enough, grace. When I haven’t checked anything off my to-do list, grace. When I’ve worn the same outfit 7 days in a row, grace… I am choosing to release my harsh and sometimes worldly standards and learning to embrace His grace in my weakness. His power is perfected in my weakness.”

6. Okay, Got It. On to Tip #2!

Audrey roloff on the beach
Writes Roloff in her latest pseudo advice column: “Establish your team before you have a baby. Expect to have less than half the time you did beforehand.”

Audrey Roloff: Is THIS Why She Quit Little People, Big World?

You can always trust Audrey Roloff to keep it real.

The now-former Little People, Big World has talked at length in the past about her early breastfeeding challenge, her bouts of postpartum depression and how she relies on her faith in all aspects of her life.

But what about the filming of the show itself?

What has it been like to have a cameraman essentially follow you around at all times?

In the wake of Audrey and Jeremy Roloff announcing they will not be returning to Little People, Big World, Audrey recently spoke to Jenna Kutcher on the Goal Digger podcast and perhaps shed some light on why the couple decided to walk away.

Scroll down and then click around for the revealing details…

1. Audrey and Jeremy Confirmed in July 2018 That They Are Leaving LPBW

Happy mommy and daughter
This is what Audrey wrote on Instagram after her husband first broke the news: “This past season was our last season of filming for Little People Big World. I know it’s been a shorter run for me(for Jeremy it’s been 14 years!), but I’ve shared some pretty big life moments on #LPBW – getting engaged, our wedding day, the launch of @beating50, 3 moves, a remodel, finding out we were having a baby girl, and becoming a new mom! I and 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, but excited to focus on what we feel the Lord is calling us too! You guys are the most loyal fans. Thank you for respecting our decision. And thanks to TLC for putting up with us.”

2. She Concluded:

Roloffs and daughter
“Mostly, I am so proud of my husband who has grown up in the public eye and yet remained grounded, wise, and steadfast in his faith. This decision is one that I respect him for immensely. ‘Here’s hail to the rest of the road!’ I love you Farmer. Psalm 20:7.”

3. But Why?!?

Loving daughter time
Jeremy had said the decision to depart was made about a year ago, but neither he nor Audrey delved into the reasons WHY the couple had arrived at this major decision.

4. It’s Been a Big Change So Far

Roloffs near church
“Segueing away from the cameras [has] been a big shift for us,” Audrey admitted on the podcast. “But we are really excited about just being able to really press into writing and speaking and creating and just devoting all of our efforts in the things that we feel the Lord has called us to, and also raising a family away from the cameras.”

5. Audrey Met Jeremy on a Blind Date

Pure joy
She confesses here that she didn’t really understand what she was getting into when she first met her husband. And the whole reality show thing didn’t really affect her at first.

6. Why Was This the Case?

Roloffs say cheese
Because, Roloff explains, “during our long distance relationships, I sort of was around the cameras but not too much.” It wasn’t until her wedding day that Audrey got “thrust into it” all.

Audrey Roloff and Jeremy Roloff: When Will They Have More Kids?!?

Look, Audrey and Jeremy Roloff.

We know you are very busy these days.

You have a toddler at home and a memoir set to come out and a popular blog to keep writing, but we have a quick question to which we’d love a definitive answer:

When are you having more children?!?!?

We’re kidding, of course. 

Or we’re kidding about the urgency of the answer at least.

But it is a common concern of many celebrity gossip followers to wonder when their favorite couple will have a baby… and then to wonder when this couple will have more babies… and so on and so forth.

With talk online of Audrey being pregnant already with child number-two, the Roloffs told People Magazine this week that they certainly are anxious to expand their family.

They just aren’t certain when this will happen.

“Jer and I definitely want to have more children,” Audrey tells this publication, adding:

“We’ve never really put a number on it, we want to take them one at a time.

“We’ve always envisioned a big family, that’s always been something we’ve talked about from the very beginning.”

“Enough to fill up a sprinter van,” jokes Jeremy.

It’s not difficult to envision Audrey and Jeremy as the parents to many children.

They are a faith-based twosome who seems very dedicated to themselves and to their family.

We’ve never seen a woman gush over her kid the way Audrey has gushed over daughter Ember ever since she was born in September.

Elsewhere in this same interview, Jeremy touched on another aspect of the couple’s future.

He admitted that he talks to his parents constantly about buying the family farm in Oregon.

Interesting, right?

We suppose thia makes some sense, with Matt Roloff moving to Arizona and Amy Roloff perhaps moving away to start a life with boyfriend Chris Marek.

We simply had no idea such a transfer of property was in the works.

For now, however, the main work on which Audrey and Jeremy are focusing in the rollout of their book, “A Love Letter Life: Pursue Creatively, Date Intentionally, Love Faithfully.”

It comes out in April of 2019.

“We believe everyone has a unique love story and we want people to be super stoked to press into their own love story,” Jeremy explained to People of the book’s premise.

“We want readers to prepare more for their marriage than their wedding [day].

“I think social media can paint facades, so [Audrey and I] hope that people will walk away [from the book] knowing that we aren’t perfect, our [dating] relationship wasn’t perfect.

“We learned from our struggles and we came out stronger on the other side.”

Teases Audrey on this same subject:

“I think people will be surprised at how much they don’t know about our love story.”

Jeremy and Audrey Roloff Book Cover: First Inspiring Look!

As previously noted and lamented, Audrey Roloff and Jeremy Roloff are leaving Little People, Big World.

The couple made this announcement about a month ago.

In doing so, however, they also said the following…

“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.”

Along these lines, Audrey and Jeremy have gone into more detail about their most immediate upcoming project: a memoir titled A Love Letter Life: Pursue Creatively, Date Intentionally, Love Faithfully.

The couple confirmed this book was in the works several months ago, explaining at the time that the tome would be based on their experience as a faith-based couple.

Said Audrey in March:

The book is essentially our love story. 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.

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 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.

Fast forward to now and the Roloffs have given an interview to People Magazine in which they share more details about this unique idea.

“We believe everyone has a unique love story and we want people to be super stoked to press into their own love story,” Jeremy tells this publication, adding:

“We want readers to prepare more for their marriage than their wedding [day].

“I think social media can paint facades, so [Audrey and I] hope that people will walk away [from the book] knowing that we aren’t perfect, our [dating] relationship wasn’t perfect.

“We learned from our struggles and we came out stronger on the other side.”

The book comes out in April of 2019…

… and this is your first look at the cover!

Audrey and Jeremy have been married for four years and welcomed a daughter named Ember in September.

They say this memoir will reveal the “raw, never-before shared tales from their own dating journey,” with Jeremy teasing the content as follows:

“[Maintaining a long-distance relationship] was really difficult for us. We did it for three years, and in the book we explain how it started, how we survived it.

“And Audrey almost ended our love story.

“We tell that story and I got emotional when I reread it… There are [also] two other really difficult moments outside of [long] distance that were big challenges and learning curves.”

How intriguing, right?

Jeremy often penned Audrey letters during this time apart, which is where the stars got the title of the book from.

To this day, Audrey and Jeremy try to keep their relationship original, creative, fresh and exciting.

“I think one of the things is realizing that pursuing and dating don’t have to stop when you get married,” says Audrey when explaining how they make their marriage work:

“The subtitle of our book is ‘pursue creatively, date intentionally, love faithfully,’ and we think all of those three things can be true before you’re married and after you’ve been married for 20 years.

“For us, it’s really important to continue pursuing each other in marriage, to continue to look for ways that we can love each other when it’s not convenient, and even when it’s hurtful.”
