Amy Roloff Birthday Photo Montage: I Feel So Loved!

Amy Roloff often ends her Instagram captions with the hashtag #AmysSecondAct.

She's referring to her life post-divorce with that message, and nowhere is that more apparent than with the series of photos Amy shared in the wake of her 54th birthday.

Celebrating the occasion with family members and loved ones, Amy clearly has a blast.

She's living her best life at the moment, as evidenced by the following message she wrote to accompany this montage:

Matt Roloff Wishes Ex-Wife Happy Birthday, Stuns Critics

Matt Roloff has a message for everyone who thinks he and his ex-wife are in an ugly feud.

And he also has a message for that ex-wife herself.

In an Instagram caption that likely came as a shock to some people who believe everything they read online, the Little Poeple, Big World star wished Amy Roloff a happy birthday.

For real!

This really happened, despite critics around the Web often writing that Amy and Matt asre engaged in some kind of rivalry.

“A very Happy Birthday to both Amy and Molly who share the exact same big day. I hope you both have a wonderful amazing Day!!” Matt wrote alongside the image above, which features himself and his daughter.

The reality star included a cake emoji and a balloon emoji and some other emojis along with this caption as well.

Matt and Amy filed for divorce in the spring of 2016, many months after they separated.

They still run Roloff Farm together and they still anchor Little People, Big World together and they still get along pretty darn well, if you ask us.

However, there’s understandable tension at times because Amy is dating Chris Marek and Matt is dating Caryn Chandler and the paths of these couples often cross.

But we challenge anyone reading this to find any negative remarks out there from either Matt in Amy’s direction or vice versa.

Just because Matt didn’t actually celebrate Amy’s birthday this past weekend certainly doesn’t mean anything.

She was taken out to dinner by Marek and it would have been fairly awkward if her ex-husband had tagged along.

For whatever reason, though, many social media users leave critical comments on Matt’s page any time he references Caryn; or on Amy’s page any time she references Chris.

We asked a few weeks ago why fans are so obsessed with stirring up controversy when there is none, considering how smoothly Amy and Matt have continued to run their business in the wake of their divorce.

Moreover, all four of the Roloff children seem totally accepting of these new romantic entanglements.

So why can’t fans of their TLC show also go along for the ride?

For the record, this is what Amy and Matt said in their statement at the time of their official split:

After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce.

We are proud of what we have accomplished together, including raising our four wonderful children, who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful businesses.

Our kids and our ever-growing family, and the love and support we have for them, will be our priority. We will continue to work together side-by-side in the daily responsibilities for our many current ventures.

We would like to thank our family, friends, and all our fans for their continued support and understanding during this difficult time.

Unlike many other celebrities who break up, they’ve actually managed to stand by these words and keep their family nice and close.

Well done, you two.

And happy birthday, Amy and Molly!


Matt Roloff and Caryn Chandler: Happily Missing Amy’s Birthday!

Matt Roloff has made no secret about enjoying getting away from Roloff Farms from time to time.

The Little People, Big World star and his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, shared a few glimpses of their road trip to Arizona, where Matt owns a vacation home.

The timing of their trip is a little interesting — because they left right in time to completely miss Amy Roloff’s birthday.

Matt shared a friendly photo of him and his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler to Instagram.

“Out n about in Surprise Arizona,” Matt writes in the caption. “Happy Friday everyone!”

As we previously reported, Matt Roloff purchased a home in Surprise, Arizona — buying it from Caryn’s parents.

He then went on to make a show of househunting on camera, which some fans found deceptive. Others accepted that it’s just part of the reality business.

This house is just a vacation home, however. Matt’s permanent home is still at the farm in Oregon.

Matt also treated his fans and followers to a gorgeous shot of the Grand Canyon.

“Heading out of Dodge for a quick getaway with [Caryn Chandler],” Matt wrote. “Goodbye rainy Portland … hello Grand Canyon!”

Matt also shared another photo of him standing beside a nearly life-sized Dia de los Muertos decoration.

“Out shopping for some home Knick knacks,” Matt wrote in the captions. 

“I thought this was a ‘must have,'” Matt shared. “Caryn just stared at me.”

Fans were delighted to see that Matt is getting away from Roloff Farms for a while and spending time with Caryn.

“Yes!!” commented one fan. “Glad you got a break before pumpkin season!!”

Roloff Farms are famous for their pumpkins and for pumpkin-related products, including Amy’s pumpkin salsa.

“Karen is so lovely…” wrote another fan who seemed to have trouble spelling Caryn’s name, adding that she “seems like a great lady! Glad to see you happy Matt!!!”

“You seem so happy I’m so glad for you,” gushed another follower.

Monday, September 17 was Amy Roloff’s birthday, but she and boyfriend Chris Marek wasted no time and celebrated early over the weekend.

“My birthday month keeps being wonderful,” Amy gushed under this sweet photo.

“Another ‘Date’ night w/ this awesome guy,” she wrote, referring to Chris.

“Went to one of our favorite restaurants, Thai food, downtown Hillsboro and then a local play,” Amy said. “Life is good!”

Some fans could not help but wonder if Matt and Caryn’s Arizona getaway had less to do with rain or pumpkin season and more to do with avoiding Amy’s birthday celebrations.

Matt and Amy Roloff have moved on, but some Little People, Big World fans seem unable to accept that.

Some trolls have targeted Caryn and Chris, accusing them of being golddiggers or fame-seekers.

Some of these jabs are the result of people who want Amy and Matt to get back together.

Unfortunately, some of the jabs come from people who can’t wrap their heads around able-bodied people dating little people without an agenda. That is unhealthy, bigoted thinking.

Real fans should be happy for Matt and Amy for finding happiness in their new relationships. It is normal for families to change over time.


Samantha Markle: Happy Birthday Prince Harry, You Filthy Rodent!

Prince Harry was born on September 15, 1984. As of Saturday, he is 34 years old.

And who better to wish him a happy birthday than Meghan Markle’s vile sister?

In her bizarre and spiteful tweet, Samantha Markle compares Prince Harry to … a hamster.

In a tweet on her locked Twitter account, which is only viewable by her approved followers, Samantha Grant — often known as Samantha Markle — posted a less-than-friendly birthday tribute.

“Happy Birthday Harry!” she writes to her brother-in-law.

“As you ‘mack down’ on your birthday cake,” her hostile message begins.

She then advises him to “think about the birthday wishes you never extended to your FATHER-IN-LAW.”

To top it all off, she makes an unflattering visual comparison — seeming to equate Harry to a hamster.

Samantha Grant tweet happy birthday prince harry 2018

This is no surprise.

Not only can this simply be added to the lengthy list of rude posts that Samantha has made towards her half-sister and the royals, but she did the same to Meghan just last month.

“Happy Birthday Meg!” she tweeted on August 14, which was Meghan’s 37th birthday.

“It would be so lovely and appropriate of you to send DAD a BELATED birthday card for his,” Samantha badgered.

Samantha then reminded Meghan that Thomas Markle’s birthday is “July 18th.”

Birthdays are far from the only occassions that Samantha has used social media to lash out at Meghan and Harry.

It seems that Samantha considers the two to be fair game on any day ending with a -y.

“Act like a humanitarian act like a woman!” Samantha demanded of Meghan in one tweet. “If our father dies I’m holding you responsible, Meg!”

“OK so Cruella Deville is retreating LOL…” Samantha wrote in another tweet. “Let me know how that works out for you.”

The legendary Disney character’s name is Cruella de Vil, and we have to say that we don’t really see her as a very 

Samantha, along with her brother Thomas Markle Jr. and their father, Thomas Markle Sr., seems dedicated to giving Meghan a hard time in the media.

This doesn’t really do much aside from annoy the Royals — remember, just a few centuries ago, “trouble with your in-laws” for that family meant a continental war.

But it has to be a wound to Meghan herself, who remained in contact with her father until he proved that he could not be trusted.

Now that he spills every detail of every conversation with her or with Harry, she can’t trust him to not do so if she calls him. But Samantha will never forgive Meghan for that.

But Meghan is living her own life, married to one of the most famously desired men on the planet.

The most recent news out of Kensington Palace is that Meghan is supporting an intersectional cookbook that talks about how food brings families and communities together.

It’s just sad that, through their own poor choices, a few of Meghan’s family members have chosen to tear apart their own family because they’re seemingly high on fame.

We should note that Meghan’s mom has conducted herself with dignity throughout everything, which is why she was invited to the Royal Wedding.

Samantha is probably going to keep on hurling jabs at Meghan until no one cares anymore. That’s kind of pitiful.


Ami Brown: Honored by Children on a Birthday They Feared She’d Never See

Considering how serious Ami Brown's cancer battle was at times, there were many who feared that the Alaskan Bush People matriarch would not see this year's birthday.

But August 28 has come and gone, and Ami is now 55 yeras old.

Rain and Bear joined forces on Instagram to give their mother a series of birthday tributes, as you can see in the video below.

Rain brown and bear brown

On Rain's Instagram, she and her brother, Bear, give Ami a shout-out on this very special birthday.

"Just want to say happy birthday to mom," Bear says while arm-in-arm with Rain.

"Seriously," Bear says. "It’s awesome to still have our mother around, quite frankly."

Rain chimes in, saying: "Amazing."

Rain then says "Happy birthday, mom!" and Bear echoes the sentiment.

Rain brown hugs ami brown

That's all very sweet, but Rain also wrote up a message of her own.

"Dear mommy," Rain writes. "Happy birthday to the greatest woman I know!!!"

We know that Rain is going to turn 16 in a few months, but ti's sweet that she still calls her mother "mommy."

"You inspire me beyond compare," Rain continues. "If I turn out to be anything like you my life would have purpose."

"You listen to me even when I’m having an anxiety attack over the dumbest things," Rain says. "You comfort me just by being in the room."

We should note that Rain has spoken about her mental health before, and also that anxiety attacks are like allergies — it seeming "dumb" doesn't make it so.

Rain brown works hard

"You mean absolutely the world to me," Rain's sweet birthday tribute message to her mom continues. "And I would be lost without you."

Rain writes: "it’s been an amazing honor to not only know a legend such as you but to call her mommy."

"I can’t wait until we’re both super old ladies together," Rain imagines. "Sipping tea with the grandkids."

"Happy birthday mommy," Rain concludes. "I love you more than the world."

Rain isn't the only one who wanted to put her affection for her mom in writing.

Bear brown

In addition to the video that we've included, Bear also wrote his own message.

"Today was my Moms birthday!!" he writes with his characteristic lack of chill. "I have no words to describe how I feel to still have my Mom!"

A lot of people use exclamation marks on social media to show that they are being friendly in tone. Bear just seems enthusiastic.

"She’s always been there for me! My whole life!" Bear writes. "And I’ve been trying my hardest to be there for her!"

"Thank you everybody!!" Bear says in a shout-out to fans. "All the fans and family’s!! All the production crews we’ve worked with!! Everybody at discovery!"

Bear brown goes wild

"Life is too short not to enjoy every moment!!" Bear writes.

That is a very on-brand sentiment for him.

But Bear makes sure to remind people that Ami's birthday is, of course, all about Ami.

"Happy birthday to the strongest and best mother ever!!!"

Bear concludes: "I will never give up and I will never surrender!!"

Jinger Duggar Celebrates Daughter’s 1-Month Birthday With World’s Cutest Pic

It’s hard to believe it’s been a full month since Jinger Duggar welcomed her first child, but lo and behold, little Felicity has been on this planet for 31 whole days.

And you know Jinger had to hit fans with an adorable b-day pic to give them a powerful case of cuteness overload.

That’s Felicity at one month old.

As you can see, she’s an almost impossibly adorable tyke, and fans have reacted to Jinger’s birthday post with a torrent of giddy glee.

“Oh, my word! She is just precious!!! Perfect combination of mommy and daddy 🙂 congrats y’all! God bless!” wrote one of Jinger’s followers.

“She is absolutely beautiful. I believe I cried when she was born… I was so excited for you and @jeremy_vuolo … enjoy each and every day, they grow up in the blink of an eye,” remarked another.

“Beautiful princess…Daddy’s eyes…the world’s heart!” commented a third.

Like we said, the Duggar public is absolutely head-over-heels for young Felicity.

And they’re pretty fond of her parents, too.

Last week, Jinger posted pics of her post-baby body, and fans expressed utter shock with impressive physical fitness.

As for Jeremy, he’s the rare Duggar husband that actually seems more concerned with loving and supporting his wife and daughter than with securing a chunk of Jim Bob’s fortune.

In other words, Jeremy is — as many fans have pointed out during the past month — the very definition of #DadGoals.

For many younger or less-conservative Duggar fans, Jingger and Jeremy are a breath of fresh air.

Yes, they’re extremely old-fashioned by most standards (Jeremy still decides what sort of clothing Jinger is allowed to wear, for crying out loud.), but in Duggar World, they’re a pair of rule-breaking progressives.

Obviously, there’s the fact that Jinger wears pants in defiance of her family’s dress code, but that’s not her only act of rebellion.

Even the fact that Jinger and Jeremy waited a year after their wedding before trying to have a baby is an indication that the couple has no intention of being reined in by Jim Bob’s strict rules of conduct.

Perhaps that’s why fans are so excited about Felicity.

She’s the first of the new-generation Duggars whose parents could actually be described as cool.


Demi Lovato’s Sister Sends Singer Heartfelt Birthday Wishes

Demi Lovato turns 26 years old today.

In one sense, this is a very unhappy birthday, considering the singer is celebrating it far away from friends and family members in rehab.

In another sense, however, this is a very very happy birthday.

How so?

How can we make that determination when Lovato is in some treatment center and will be remaining there for the foreseeable future?

Because at least she’s alive, that’s why.

It’s been made clear at this point that Lovato really did come close to death on the morning of July 24 when she overdosed from an unknonwn, possibly tainted drug.

From that standpoint, those close to the singer are simply grateful she’s somewhere out there, able to acknowledge today’s occasion.

Madison De La Garza is one of these people.

The half-sister of this beloved singer, Madison shared an extra sweet and special message about Lovato on her Instagram page Monday afternoon.

Madison De La Garza image

“Today could have been one of the worst days of my life, but instead i get to spend it thanking God, the incredible doctors, Demi’s team and everyone across the world who offered their support,” wrote the 16-year old as a caption to the precious image down below.

It features Lovato holding her baby half-sibling oh so long ago.

The note continues:

“Without all of these people I wouldn’t have my big sister anymore.

“I’ve been thinking about how I wish that everyone could see the silly little things that she does, like how her nostrils move when she says certain words and when she brushes my hair behind my ear when I’m trying to sleep, because those are the things I’m thankful for today.”

Last we heard, Lovato has understandably canceled the remainder of her 2018 tour in order to focus on her well-being, both physically and mentally.

Concluded Madison:

they seem so small, but those little things make up my sister – not a singer, not a celebrity, and definitely not what she’s been described as in the media – she’s a daughter, a friend, and my big sister… and i am so, so thankful that i can tell her happy birthday.


How so very sweet and personal, right?

Across the Internet, an endless array of self-proclaimed “Lovatics” sent along their best wishes to Demi as well.

“Wishing the happiest of birthdays to the queen @ddlovato,” one person wrote. “Love you forever & thinking of you today.”

Another chimed in as follows:

“Happy Birthday Demi!! Hope you are feeling better. You are my inspiration, my idol. You always put a smile on my face. You are a survivor. We love you.”

Truth be told, we doubt Lovato has Internet access right now.

It can’t be helpful to her healing process.

But we just hope she’s at least somewhat aware of all the people out there who are thinking of her today and everyday; wishing and praying for her well-being.

Please hang in there, Demi.

Please know how much you are loved and admired.
