Tori Roloff knows she’s a little bit late.
But it’s better to wish your brother-in-law and his relatively new fiancee well wishes late than never to send those wishes at all, right?
Jacob Roloff and Isabel Rock confirmed last week that they had agreed to get married, ending weeks of questions and speculation while announcing they actually got engaged in Iceland around Christmas.
“So much love for this beautiful soul @izzysofia_ . Here’s to many more Christmas’, you n me,” Jacob wrote on Instagram at the time, along with some pretty photos of the couple back when they were on vacation.
(Check out these images below.)
He later added:
“Excited for a lifetime filled with travel, growing together and trying new things with you @izzysofia_”
The day after this announcement was made, Amy Roloff congratulated the couple on their huge personal news.
“I couldn’t be a happier mom!” she wrote on January 29, adding simply:
“My youngest- Jacob and the beautiful Isabel are engaged. Love them both and excited to see where life will take them in their marriage.”
Jacob and Isabel have been together for years.
They spend a great deal of time traveling around the Pacific Northwest, often camping out or hiking around with their two dogs.
They often keep fans apprised of these adventures via social media, including many videos on YouTube.
All of this brings us back to Tori Roloff.
Typically considered the most well-meaning, loving and generally kind member of this famous family, Tori didn’t say a word about Jacob’s engagement at first.
We had been wondering what she had to say about it…
… and now we have the answer!
“So. This is so overdue,” Tori wrote to open her latest Instagram post, acknowledging her late well wishes.
“I’ve been anxiously awaiting Jake and Izzy to announce their engagement and when the time came we realized we literally had no photos of just the 5 of us,” added Roloff.
She included this as a caption to the first picture posted in this article.
(And it is worth noting that Jacob and Isabel have been engaged since December; so Tori may very well have known about it for weeks and congratulated them in private awhile back.)
“I consider Jacob and Isabel some of my closest friends and I’m so thankful to have them in our lives,” continued Tori, gushing over her loved ones.
“I’m especially thankful to Jacob. He is such a wonderful uncle to baby j and I honestly never expected to see their relationship grow in the way it has and I’m so thankful baby j has uncle j lookin out for him.”
Jacob was estranged for many months from his family, but the ice between him and his relatives has clearly thawed.
This is evident in just how many pictures Jacob has shared of himself and Tori’s son, Jackson.
I’m also so thankful for Jacob because he is bringing Isabel into our family. I already consider this girl a sister but i can’t wait for the day it becomes official.
She is such a light in this world and her enthusiasm and love of life is simply contagious. I love you both so much and I can’t wait to see what amazing things you guys accomplish together.
Wow. 3 sisters. God is good.
Humorously, Tori added “#theyneedahashtag #wefinallygotaphototogether” to the end of her caption.
Jacob and Isabel are yet to announce a date for their wedding.
We don’t know the location, either, or if any of this will be covered on Little People, Big World.
Roloff isn’t really a cast member on that series any longer, having quit in a huff back in July of 2016.
But there has been chatter he may make some appearances on the new season, which gives us another excuse to yell at TLC:
Go ahead and air new episodes please! We’re tired of waiting!
