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.

Caryn Chandler Dines with the Roloffs, Gets ALL the Hate

As evidenced by the photo below, Caryn Chandler was recently welcomed at a meal that involved Matt Roloff and a few of his loved ones.

Sadly, however, this doesn’t mean Chandler was welcome on Instagram after her boyfriend shared said picture.

Matt, we’re sure, did not mean to cause any kind of uproar with this simple and sweet photo.

“A wonderful Summer evening out to dinner with this fun group. Keep an eye on my IGTV for detailed videos,” he wrote as a rather basic caption.

In the snapshot, we see Caryn, Matt, Zach Roloff, Tori Roloff, their son Jackson… and even that family’s new puppy, Murph!

Someone unfamilar with the history behind Chandler and Matt’s relationship would wonder why this photo would prompt any sort of backlash whatsoever.

Those who have chronicled the lives of these Little People, Big World stars may have some idea, however.

Chandler worked as a manager on Roloff Farms for many years prior to striking up a romance with Matt.

She did so after he divorced Amy Roloff, but still: just because there was no infidelity does not mean there was no awkwardness or tension.

Caryn knew Amy very well when she started dating her ex-husband.

And this is not just The Hollywood Gossip conjuring up such tension or awkwardness, this is Amy herself, at times, admitting that being around Chandler too much isn’t healthy for her.

So that all serves as some background for why a handful of Instagram users reacted to the first photo posted above with such vitriol.

“way to rub your romance in amy’s face,” said joey897 in the Comments section.

“whats the point of this image?” asked amber6969, echoing this same sentiment. “cant you respect your ex-wife a little more?”

It’s worth mentioning that Amy Roloff is dating Chris Marek. She seems very happy and content and not remotely bitter over Matt being with Caryn.

Does she want to work with Chandler or see her everyday, as is often the case on the farm? No, that’s only natural.

But she has never begrudged Matt this relationship.

We’d have to imagine she would frown upon anyone giving Matt or Caryn any sort of grief online.

And she wouldn’t be alone in taking this stance, either.

“Why can’t we all just enjoy the picture?” wonders jescooby91080,adding:

“He’s out enjoying dinner with his son, his family and his girlfriend and their new puppy! I don’t think he meant to put the picture here for everyone to argue and take sides and bash each other.”

We agree.

Elsewhere, Matt has confirmed that he’s moving part-time to Arizona… with Chandler.

And that an engagement may soon be on the way.

“I feel very committed to Caryn,” Matt recently said, adding by way of major tease:

“Caryn and I are going on this adventure together, we are on this great track. So the idea of us having a vacation home that we share together, it’s interesting.

“I think we are going to take our relationship to the next level.”

If so, sadly, Matt and Caryn should probably prepare to hear it from the haters upon announcing plans to wed.

Matt Roloff: I’m Ready to Take Caryn Chandler Romance to the “Next Level!”

On this past Tuesday night’s episode of Little People, Big World, Matt Roloff made headlines for something he is NOT going to do.

After giving it much consideration and speaking to his loved ones about the possibility, Roloff decided not to run for political office.

But the veteran TLC personality also revealed something else about himself on this same installment, something that it sounds like he WILL be doing in the near future.

And that something is this:

Marrying Caryn Chandler!

This is mere speculation on our part at the moment, although there have been rumors flying around for weeks that Roloff is engaged to Chandler, who formerly worked as his family’s farm manager.

Lost in the aforementioned political talk from the latest episode of this reality series, however, is something the Roloff patriarch said about his girlfriend of over a year.

“Caryn and I are looking to invest in property [in Arizona],” Matt said on air, confirming our report that he’ll be moving down south for at least part of the year.

This is the first time Roloff has acknowledged that Chandler is a key aspect of that plan, however.

And he wasn’t done talking about the couple’s clearly very serious future.

“Amy and I have a lot of assets in the farm, so it’s really important that I start investing some of my personal money off the farm and really just having my own path that’s separate from Amy,” Matt continued, adding:

“I feel very committed to Caryn.

“Caryn and I are going on this adventure together, we are on this great track. So the idea of us having a vacation home that we share together, it’s interesting.

“I think we are going to take our relationship to the next level.”

There it is. The next level.

This may mean an engagement. This may simply mean co-habitating with each other.

But, either way, it’s the latest sign that Chandler will be in Matt’s life for a long, long time going forward.

This has caused some tension between Matt and Amy, naturally, because they were married for 26 years and have four kids together.

They also co-own the farm we cited above and Amy was pretty close to Chandler before she started to date her ex-husband.

Amy, meanwhile, is involved with Chris Marek. This relationship is also pretty serious.

However, unlike Matt with Caryn, Amy said on a recent episode that she will not really consider Marek when pondering her next step in life.

“Chris is an important person in my life, but I have no set agenda – or time limit – on how we move forward,” she said.

Amy went on to admit that she has also considered a move off the farm, regardless of whether she ends up with Marek for good or not:

“I mean, look how much stuff I still have to figure out in my life.

“So until I solidify certain other things that are going on in my life, I don’t want Chris to get involved.”

Interesting contrast between Roloffs here, huh?

We’ll continue to keep a close eye on both their romances and to keep readers up to date on where everything stands.

Amy Roloff on Caryn Chandler: She Isn’t “Healthy” for Me

On the latest episode of Little People, Big World, the Roloffs brought in Pirates of the Caribbean actor Martin Klebba to help with the problem of small crowds during the all-important pumpkin season.

But the big screen star could not help Amy Roloff with a very different problem the reality star was facing.

Faced with the issue of making sure the family farm succeeding during this vital few weeks of the year, Amy was forced to work closely with her ex-husband’s personal assistant…

… who also happens to be her ex-husband’s serious girlfriend.

Yes, this installment of the TLC series featured Amy and Caryn Chandler’s banding together for the sake of their loved ones.

“You know, this pumpkin season has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever gone through,” Amy admitted to the camera, adding:

“Caryn has been part of pumpkin season and managing it for a long time and does a great job. But knowing the relationship between Matt and Caryn, and to know that they’re dating…

“You know, to work beside Caryn, it’s not healthy for me.”

Caryn has been dating Matt Roloff for over a year now.

She knew Amy very well when this romance started, as a result of her long-time job as a manager on the farm.

Recent reports have detailed how Amy was blindsided when the two got togther, while this season of Little People, Big World has focused extensively on the tension that has resulted from this relationship.

“Amy doesn’t have a good sense of what it takes to run the farm. Amy can be very, very insecure. I try to be as patient and easy as possible,” Matt said about his ex last week, for example.

He added:

“When it comes to Amy and I, it’s just one day at a time. One day it feels like it’s working and another day it feels like it’s not working.”

Meanwhile, Chandler has tried to be as respectful of Amy as possible.

“There’s always gonna be some crossover and awkwardness with Amy,” she said on Tuesday evening about working side-by-side with her boss/foe/frenemy.

“I hope that over time, our relationship can get better.”

Jeremy Roloff and Amy’s other kids are well aware of the unusual circumstances surrounding their parents.

Watching him mom interact with Caryn on this week’s episode, Jeremy said:

“I feel for her. It’s just a bummer that we’re still dealing with this.”

Matt, however, doesn’t feel much sympathy for his wife of 26-plus years.

“Caryn is instrumental in running pumpkin season,” he said simply last night. “She’s been doing this for 10 years.”

But will she be doing it down the line?

Roloff recently confirmed that he’s moving to Arizona, placing the future of Little People, Big World in jeopardy.

“It’s kind of unexpected the way that life changes,” he said last night, adding:

“Amy and I grew apart, and I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be divorced at this stage of my life…

“So I think that we realized that a person I really care about is right under my nose and then it’s very different.”

Matt Roloff Breaks Silence on Caryn Chandler Break-Up Rumors

Matt Roloff is very sorry, ladies.

He has some news to break that you may find to be unfortunate.

And that is this: The Little People, Big World star is not single and, therefore, is not ready to mingle.

Fans across the Internet have been wondering about Roloff’s relationship status for several days now, ever since he news broke that Caryn Chandler is no longer employed by Roloff Farms.

For those unaware, Caryn is Matt’s girlfriend.

She has been for about a year now and she met Matt because she managed his property and his business for many years before that.

(This is also why there’s constant tension between Caryn and Amy Roloff; the two were friends prior to her divorce from Matt and Caryn’s subsequent romance with him.)

HOWEVER, multiple outlets reported last week that Chander is no longer employed by Matt, leading to one of two possibilities:

  1. She has been fired because she and Matt have broken up and it would be too weird if they kept working together.
  2. They are engaged, or about to be engaged, and felt a need to wholly separate their work from their personal lives.

So that’s the background at work here.

It should help readers understand Matt’s response to a comment on Facebook yesterday.

“Where’s Caryn? Did you guys break up?” a follower asked in response to a photo of Matt on vacation in Mexico, seemingly by himself.

“We did not break up,” Roloff said in response to the speculation.

So… there you go, we guess?

We can return to the opposite kind of speculation now? The kind that involves wondering whether or not Matt and Caryn are engaged?

We’re happy to wonder about that more exciting possibility instead, but we can’t help thinking that Matt’s reply was lacking in… something, right?

He didn’t make some joke about these break-up rumors nor did he say anything nice about Chandler and their relationship.

He just gave the most straightforward answer possible, which still makes us think something is off here. Perhaps the pair are just on a break?

Maybe Caryn just needs space?

We’re not judging at all. We’re just curious.

On a recent episode of Little People, Big World, Caryn admitted that she would be willing to leave the farm the moment her boyfriend’s ex-wife told her to do so.

She meant this out of respect for Amy, not out of any kind of bitterness.

She very much understands how awkward everything is here.

“I don’t want to invade anyone’s space, and the moment Amy doesn’t want me coming around anymore, I won’t,” Chandler told the cameras.

Along those lines, as documented below, Matt has been considering a major change in his life.

Matt Roloff and Caryn Chandler: Is It Over?!?

BREAKING CELEBRITY RELATIONSHIP NEWS:

Matt Roloff and Caryn Chandler have either broken up…

… or the couple is about to get engaged.

Confused? Allow us to explain why one of these contrasting possibilities seems very likely at the moment:

According to Radar Online, Chandler has been let go from her position as the manager at Roloff Farms.

She no longer holds this important job, which she took on over a decade ago and which is the way she met her eventually boyfriend, Matt Roloff.

(It’s also why tension has been pretty high between Caryn and Amy Roloff for awhile now; it’s always been awkward when an acquaintance starts dating your ex-husband.)

On a recent episode of Little People, Big World, Matt went into detail over just how integral Caryn is to the business he’s co-owned for years and years now.

“Caryn is instrumental in running pumpkin season, she’s run it for 10 years,” he said on air, adding:

“She tries to get Amy as involved as she can. There was awkwardness a little bit, but we’re all kind of finding our way.”

Roloff went on to say at this time:

“I enjoy her immensely. Whether we’re working or whether we’re relaxing, we have a great time together.”

That’s been evident for over a year, since the two started dating, which is why this development has taken us by surprise.

It could mean that Matt and Caryn have broken up.

If this is the case, it would obviously make sense for Chandler to stop working at the farm, considering there would be tension going forward between her and Amy AND her and Matt.

But what if this means the opposite?

What if Matt and Caryn are engaged, as some rumors have suggested, and they’ve decided to fully separate their personal lives from their professional lives in response?

We reported last week that Matt Roloff had seemingly purchased a home away from the farm.

After telling TLC viewers this season that things had to change because it was just too strange to live within 1,000 feet of Amy, Matt hinted on social media that he’s made the decision to get a new place.

This, in our opinion, would point to Matt and Caryn taking another step in their romance; be it an engagement or just a living-together situation.

Here’s one final thing to consider, however:

Radar Online also says Matt does not follow Chandler on Instagram.

Did he ever, though?

We can’t say at this time.

We do know, though, that Matt is a prolific poster on this platform, so it does make us go back and wonder if the relationship is over.

It may sound crazy, but in this day and age, not following one’s significant other on social media is a pretty big deal…and often a telling one.

We’ll talk to our Little People, Big World sources and see what we can dig up on the status of Matt and Caryn.

Stay tuned, folks. There’s clearly some kind of news to break here…
