Jacob Roloff: Gushed Over, Praised by Fiancee Isabel Rock

Last month, Jacob Roloff and Isabel Rock announced their wedding date.

Now, Isabel can’t help but gush about the former Little People, Big World star.

Isabel is telling fans how supportive Jacob is — and revealing how he helps her with her art.

Jacob Roloff Helps Isabel With Her Art

“The man behind the resin pieces,” Isabel Rock gushed on social media alongside a glimpse of Jacob helping with her art.

“I couldn’t have done it without his help,” she admits.

Isabel explains: “If you are not familiar with resin, there are so many steps and tricks and measuring.”

“And,” she continues. “You can’t mess any of it up or you’ll ruin the entire piece.”

Isabel then announces: “Jacob always comes through!”

Isabel wasn’t done praising the love of her life.

“He really is the most helpful and supportive fiance,” she gushes.

Her post ends: “I really love him so much!”

Awww, they’re so cute.

And he has been supportive of her in other ways that do not have to do with her art.

Alongside this tender photo, Isabel recently gushed about how Jacob helped her self-image.

“When I first saw this photo,” Isabel writes. “I was horrified at how chubby my cheeks looked.”

“This beautiful picture, with all of its complexities that make it what it is,” she describes.

“And of course,” Isabel laments. “I zeroed in on the most negative thing I could find.”

“My cheeks are one of Jacob’s favorite things about me,” she reveals.

Cute!

“I’ve had them since birth,” Isabel says of her cheeks. “And apparently, they’re never going away.”

She explains how Jacob’s feedback helped her to appreciate the image.

“Now, with some perspective, I see this photograph as one I will cherish for life,” Isabel writes.

“The way he is looking at me,” she admires. “That perfect Iowa sunset.”

She mentions: “The fact that there were so many deer in a meadow behind us and our dogs were in that same meadow playing ball.”

“Life is a lot like this,” Isabel notes.

A huge part of being a celebrity who posts lowkey thinkpieces to Instagram is drawing larger life lessons from individual photos.

“We tend to hone in on the negatives,” Isabel acknowledges. “It is the way we have trained our brains to work since the beginning.”

“We focus on what we don’t like, what we don’t have, what we wish were different,” Isabel explains.

Isabel continues: “Instead of looking at the whole picture and admiring it for all that it is.”

“I’d like you to join me in training our minds to see things differently,” Isabel invites her followers.

When looking at the world, she says, “we don’t have to see it negatively.”

She suggests that they join her in “Practicing gratitude, daily affirmations, changing our thought patterns,”

“All of these things,” Isabel says. “Can shift our perspective.”

She is absolutely right. Sometimes, the key to changing the way that you think is just daily practice.

Isabel points out that rejecting the natural instinct to focus on the negative can make people’s lives better.

She suggests focusing on this “so that when something bad comes along we can still find the good in it.”

“We can still find the light,” Isabel concludes.

She then follows that post with a couple of tags.

“#worldmentalhealthday,” she writes. “#ilovehimsomuch”

Jacob has been publicly supportive of Isabel’s art, but it’s great to see that he gets involved in the process.

His mother, Amy Roloff, has also shown her support by giving Isabel’s gallery showings a boost on social media.

It is heartwarming to see that Jacob also lends emotional support to Isabel when it comes to loving herself.

Heartwarming, but not surprising — they are, after all, engaged.

Matt Roloff Drops HUGE Hint About Little People, Big World Season 14

We have some good news, Little People, Big World fans:

You may not need to say goodbye to Jeremy and Audrey Roloff after all.

Back in July, of course, the beloved twosome stunned fans of this TLC series by announcing they would not be returning for Season 14.

Jeremy said in his statement that this decision had actually been reached about a year earlier, telling followers on Instagram:

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.

And Matt has now confirmed as much: the show WILL be going on.

The patriarch tells Soap Dirt that filming for Season 14 is underway, and that viewers likely have actually NOT seen the last of Jeremy and Audrey.

Cameras were on hand for Matt’s recent birthday party, for example, and these two were in attendance, so… “that’s a little tip for you there,” Matt said.

He explained that Jeremy and Audrey are not on the “filming schedule,” but they are very much around at times and aren’t about to hide from TLC.

“They’ll participate in the family events,” he says simply.

That’s nice to know, isn’t it?

Roloff admitted in this same interview that mentioned that his son and daughter-in-law dropping out of the show was quite a “twist to the whole thing, but TLC decided to go forward.

And why not, he continues?

“They’ve got Zach and Tori, and Amy and myself” as cast members, even noting “Caryn and Chris” in a reference to his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, and Amy Roloff’s boyfriend, Chris Marek (below).

It sounds as if both will have significant roles on Season 14.

As for when new episodes may air?

Matt doesn’t know.

He says he heard the spring at one point, but it’s possible he and his loved ones may be back on our small screens prior to that.

Either way, they remain a huge part of our lives, frequently sharing photos and messages on social media.

For example, did you see how the Roloff celebrated the start of pumpking season at their farm this week?

Molly Roloff Actually Visits Family Farm, Makes Amy One Happy Mama

Molly Roloff may not be a cast member on Little People, Big World.

But that doesn’t mean she isn’t a very welcome member of her own family.

Unlike her brother, Jacob, who quit the aforementioned TLC series last summer in a major huff, Molly has never made any grand statements about the show being fake or phony or silly in any way.

Nope.

She’s simply chosen to live a more private life, one that has taken her away from her family farm and one that includes a very normal and content existence with husband Joel.

Like we said before, however, Molly is on great terms with her parents despite having removed herself from their everyday lives and their most profitable source of income.

And that relationship was on full display this past weekend.

In honor of the beginning of pumpkin season at Roloff Farms, Molly and Joel drove on down and supported their loved ones.

They posed for a photo with the entire family, and they also posed for a photo with just Amy, as you can see above.

“I was so so excited that Molly and Joel were able to drive down for opening weekend of pumpkin season at Roloff Farms Pumpkin Patch,” Amy wrote as a caption to the two images above.

She added:

“It was wonderful to see them. This mom was happy.”

And below is the snapshot that has been making the Internet rounds, with nearly every single Roloff in the same place for a fun change:

As far as Molly goes, she recently hung with her dad as well and does try to come back to the farm when she can.

But she headed off college at Whitworth University and then met her now-husband shortly thereafter, Joel Silvius.

Together, the couple chose to stay in the area and they’re now permanently based in Spokane, Washington, which is about a six-hour drive from where Matt and Amy reside.

(Yes, Matt and Amy are divorced, but they still live on the same large piece of property. It’s a whole thing.)

It’s not a short haul for Joel and Molly to visit the farm, but pumpkin season is THE huge event for this family.

At least professionally speaking.

“The first weekend of pumpkin season has officially come and the whole family came out!” the Roloffs shared on the farm’s official Instagram page.

“Thank you to everyone who has come out despite the rainy Oregon weather!”

Tori Roloff Opens Up About Marriage to Zach: I Always Have to Reach the High Shelf!

Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff is a wonderful mother to her adorable baby, Jackson.

But she’s also an amazing wife to her husband. In fact, she posted the ultimate anniversaty tribute to Zach earlier this year.

Now, she’s opening up to fans about how her husband’s dwarfism impacts their marriage. She gets very honest.

On Monday night, Tori Roloff took to Instagram for a no-holds-barred Q&A with her fans and followers.

Seriously, no topic was off-limits.

Tori gushed about having found an entire community of little people through her husband, Zach Roloff.

Tori wrote that she is “so blessed that I’ve made such amazing friends in the dwarf community.”

(Disclaimer: some little people are totally onboard with the dwarf label while others are emphatically not)

Tori went on to speak about how Zach’s dwarfism impacts their relationship.

It turns out that the effect is not as great as some people have assumed.

Tori is quick to shoot down the misconception that his dwarfism is a “limitation” within their marriage.

She does say that the biggest impact is that she has “asked to reach the high shelf a lot.”

That sort of thing can happen in a lot of marriages where there’s a height difference.

Tori says that things go smoothly so long as neither of them are trying to be a different height than they really are.

“To me it feels weird to crouch,” Tori confesses.

“And,” she adds. “Zach always told me to stand.”

“I’m not trying to be shorter and he’s not trying to be taller,” she notes.

Any relationship is going to be healthier while both parties agree to be exactly who they are.

“I love my husband for his heart not his height,” Tori affirms. “Love is love is love.”

She’s right — and it’s good that she makes it clear that she is not a “chaser.”

That is, she is not someone who fetishizes him for his dwarfism.

She loves Zach for who he is, neither for nor despite his height.

That is just as it should be.

She also speaks about baby Jackson, and this is when she starts talking science and genetics with her followers.

“It’s a dominant gene,” she explains. “So you only have the gene if you are an achon.”

(How many other reality stars can hold their own in a conversations about hereditary traits and genetics?)

“They do all carry the gene for dyostraphic,” Tori continues.

“But,” she notes. “Their partner would also have to carry the gene to have children with dyostraphic dwarfism.”

Fans ask how she feels about the very real possibility that sweet baby Jackson might need to undergo surgeries, like his father and grandfather.

Tori says that “of course” the idea of that scares her.

“There’s no telling,” Tori admits.

Tori then notes: “but we’re blessed to have no health issues so far.”

“But we have so much support and love,” Tori says. “And I know we’ll handle anything God throws at us.”

Right now, she’s more worried about the bumps and bruises that Jackson is very naturally getting as he learns to walk.

Jeremy Roloff Gets Daddy-Shamed for the Dumbest Reason Ever

Move over, mommy-shaming and fat-shaming.

It’s time to make room for very awful daddy-shaming.

Isn’t that right, Jeremy Roloff

The former Little People, Big World star was on the receiving end of some ridiculous backlash this week after he shared what appears to be a simple and harmless photo of himself and his one-year old daughter, Ember.

The picture was snapped in Nashville and captioned as follows:

Spent a few days in Nashville and now we’re in Franklin, TN. Such a lovely town.

Although it reminds me of Bend – almost too popular to enjoy now! But still, a beautiful town and we always enjoy our time down here.

The people are great and the hospitality is noticed! P.S. If we took a photo with you at some point – tag us so we can see it!

The image itself, meanwhile, simply features Jeremy tossing his infant up in the air:

WHEEEE, right?

Apparently not.

More like, WTH, according to some misguided and cruel trolls.

“Idiot. She’s not a circus act,” one person actually wrote in the comments, while another chimed in with;

Wow. Be careful throwing your kid like that.”

A third person warned the ex-TLC personality about shaken baby syndrome, while a fourth suggested that this move is harmful to “little brains.”

We have no idea what to even say here.

Nearly every parent alive has thrown his or her into the air in this sort of manner.

The kid is never more than, like a foot above the parent’s hands outstretched hands and always falls very easily and comfortably back into place.

(We can’t believe we actually need to spell this out for some people.)

Thankfully, a number of social media users leaped to Jeremy’s defense and called out his critics for being, well… complete morons.

“Accidents can happen doing anything,” explained one individual “Can’t stop living life because ur scared to actually have fun. Most babies like being tossed in the air, so take a seat.”

For the record, Ember is doing just fine.

Jeremy shared plenty of other photos from this same trip, as he and his daughter and wife enjoyed their time visiting Tennessee.

Speaking of that wife, Audrey Roloff can relate to what her husband is now going through.

She’s heard it from followers in the past for the kind of outfits in which she placed Ember and even for the kind of outfit she once wore to the doctor’s office.

We’re not kidding. This actually happened.

Overall, Jeremy and Audrey frequently post pictures of themselves and their child.

They gush over her every chance they get.

They come across as caring and as loving as two parents can possibly be.

Jeremy has not yet responded to this dumb criticism and we hope he never does.

Just enjoy every second you have with that 13-month old bundle of joy, man. She’s precious.

Jacob Roloff: Why He Might NEVER Make Peace With Matt

Last month, Jacob Roloff announced his wedding date. He and his fiancee have been spending a lot of time with his family.

Well, with most of his family. Jacob and his dad are still awkward around each other … when they’re even in the same room.

An inside source has come forward to open up about why Jacob and Matt might never mend their shattered relationship.

RadarOnline has the scoop on why the Little People, Big World patriarch and his youngest son can’t see eye to eye.

“Jacob and his dad,” the insider begins. “They don’t have the best relationship.”

Well, that’s not exactly a huge bombshell.

In fact, it’s kind of an understatement. Things are tense now, but once upon a time, these two were fully estranged.

“I think when his parents divorced,” the source continues. “He put a lot of the blame on his dad.”

“His mom was hurting for a long time,” the insider explains.

Now, she has been able to heal and to move on with her new love.

(She and Chris Marek have been together for two years and counting)

The source continues about Jacob, saying: “and he believes Matt was the sole cause of that.”

This insider believes that, to Jacob, it is “like his dad is the one that blew up the whole family.”

There’s more to it than Jacob seeing his father as the instrument of his family’s disruption.

“I also know that they don’t really see eye to eye on a lot of things,” the source shares.

“And there’s this tension between them,” the insider admits. “But they make it work.”

“They’re both slowly building on their relationship,” the source adds. So that’s progress!

“But,” the insider follows up. “I did know Jacob was very angry when his parents were first going through the divorce.”

Jacob Roloff wrote about his issues with his family in his book, and made it clear that a huge sticking point for him was the reality series.

“The entire concept of reality TV is strange because, as a viewer, you are subscribing to a particular illusion,” Jacob wrote.

This illusion, he explained, is “that you are witnessing and being let in on the secrets of the subjects’ lives.”

Obviously, the cameras aren’t omniscient or hidden, and then there’s planning, producing, and editing. It’s not a documentary, it’s entertainment.

As Jacob says: “In reality you are being shown a shallow character and only what someone else approves of, in relation to narrative and talking points.”

There was a more practical gripe that Jacob had with his folks, and the reality series was involved in that, too.

On Twitter in 2015, he leveled the accusation at his parents.

“Man I wish it didn’t feel like I was getting f–ked out of the money from the show that was my childhood right now,” he wrote.

We can’t claim to know the details of the Roloff family’s financial dealings.

We can say that Jacob was a teenager at the time, and there are few worse experiences than feeling chronically powerless.

Jacob felt that he grew up with few choices — in terms of the reality show, in terms of even his personal beliefs.

Fortunately, he at least remained close from his mother even after he set off away from his family.

On Mother’s Day in 2016, he posted a tribute to Amy.

“I loved the memory of how simple that time was,” Jacob wrote.

“And how us kids would just run around and eat fruit, play soccer, and be outside,” Jacob continued. “it was bliss!”

Jacob is what you would call outdoorsy.

“Even with sibling and parent quarrels, it was all part of it,” Jacob concluded. “I love this picture and I love my mom.”

As we mentioned, though, Matt and Jacob are making it worse.

Jacob has once again been spending time with his family, even though he and Matt aren’t exactly close these days.

Sometimes, people in families do things that are truly unforgivable. These people are toxic, and you cut them out of your life.

But sometimes, resentments formed as personalities clash can be smoothed over with time as both parties grow older and wiser.

Only time will tell if Matt and Jacob can once again become close.

Matt Roloff and Chris Marek: Totally Best Friends Now!

Matt Roloff and Chris Marek apparently have two things in common:

1. Both have seen Amy Roloff naked.

2. Both have broad feelings of respect for the other.

All fans of Little People, Big World were aware of point number-one, of course, as Matt was married to Amy for about 27 years and Marek has been dated her for just over two now.

But point number-two is new and interesting information.

For several months, there’s mostly just been assumed tension between Roloff and Marek, largely based on the simple fact that both have a romantic history with Amy.

Moreover, the pair are forced to see each other often because Amy and Matt still work together on their family farm and still live very close by to one another.

However, Marek just spoke to Radar Online and cleared up all chatter of any real issues between him and his girlfriend’s ex-husband, saying the following to this rival website:

“I think [Amy] is more accepting of us being friends. In fact Matt and I just shared the day yesterday on the farm. Everyone is fine and doing well.”

It wasn’t all that long ago that Amy made it clear how uncomfortable she was with Matt and Marek spending any real time together.

Marek admitted as much in a separate interview with Radar.

“To be honest, Amy was concerned in the beginning about how Matt and I might interact,” he said at the time, pretty much stating the obvious.

Again: Matt and Amy see each other very often.

They are both prominently involved in the lives of their four kids and two grandkids.

It makes perfect sense that Amy would be concerned about Marek interacted with Matt; the same way it would make sense for Matt to be concerned about the way Amy gets along with his serious girlfriend, Caryn Chandler.

She’s pictured here with the reality show star:

As we’ve written for a long time, though, Matt and Amy have handled their divorce and their ongoing friendship as well as could possibly be imagined.

Just over a month ago we stated that the former couple has clearly moved on and asked fans: Why are you still giving them a hard time?!?

Heck, if Marek and Matt can extend an olive branch between themselves, we’re pretty sure people who have never met either should be able to do the same.

The only issue we really care about is which couple will get engaged first:

Marek and Roloff or Roloff and Chandler?

“We are not talking about marriage yet, but everything is going well – very strong, all good,” Chris tells Radar.

He added back in March:

“I’m excited. We had a good year, we’ve done a lot of stuff and hopefully other people will enjoy the adventures we have. It’s been a good year.”

Okay, fine… so he’snow the best spoken person on the planet.

But he makes Amy happy and that’s all that matters to us!

Audrey Roloff Reveals Anniversary Plans in Wake of Marriage Rumors

Former Little People, Big World stars Audrey and Jeremy Roloff have shared their next career move, but they’re not all business.

Right after Jeremy admitted that their marriage has been “tough” in recent months, Audrey has taken to social media to gush about their anniversary trip.

And yes, there are photos of these two lovebirds — and of Jer’s reaction to Auj’s gift!

“It was my turn to plan our anniversary this year,” Audrey reveals in a lengthy Instagram post.

“We started switching off because we like surprising each other,” she explains. “And it was just easier for managing our expectations.”

“I booked us a night (our first night away from Ember) at the The Sentinel Hotel where we stayed on our wedding night 4 years ago,” Audrey shares..

“I remember when we checked in on our wedding night,” she continues. “Jer and I flipped out because there was a typewriter in the entry way.”

You don’t need to take her word for it — here is Jeremy’s typewriter-fueled excitement face.

Jeremy Roloff Smiles at Anniversary Gift

“The typewriter holds a special meaning in our love story,” Auj explains. “Jeremy sent me hand typed letters throughout our years of long distance, he asked me to be his wife on the typewriter.”

“And,” she continues. “Our typewriter has been on display in every home we’ve ever lived in.”

Audrey says that having one on display serves the purpose of “reminding and inspiring us to write a love story worth reading.”

“I called ahead of time and made a request for a special anniversary message to be displayed on the typewriter upon our arrival,” Auj reveals.

The photo of Jer’s smiling face is his response to seeing the poem that was typed out on the device. Cute!

“We had the most enchanting evening in Portland,” Auj says. “And I finally got to experience the Multnomah Whiskey Library.”

“Of course we ended the evening reading our anniversary letters,” Audrey continues. “The ones we wrote to each other on our anniversary last year.”

“It’s our favorite anniversary tradition,” she shares.

Naturally, Audrey plugs their marriage blog: “You can read about some of our other favorites in our most recent post on @beating50.”

The name, of course, refers to their desire to beat the odds that suggest that at least half of all couples get divorced.

“Jer and I celebrate our anniversary as if it’s a national holiday,” Auj gushes.

She says: “We are firm believers that love, of all things, should especially be celebrated.”

“So no matter how inconvienent,” she writes. “We are inentional about carve out time on September 20th to reminisce the past year, dream for the future, and recommit to the promises made on our wedding day.”

“And,” Auj continues. “As our favorite quote from our favorite book says… ‘If it’s half as good as the half we’ve known, here’s Hail! to the rest of the road.'”

“Happy anniversary Farmer,” Audrey says. “Let’s keep living”

As we mentioned, on their actual anniversary of September 20, Jeremy wrote a tribute to his wife and marriage but made an admission.

“These have been tough months recently,” Jer wrote. “But hard work always pays off.”

He gushed: “I love you and I love writing a love story with you.”

Whatever their recent trials, whether it’s finding out how to stay afloat without the show, dealing with family drama, Auj’s alleged feud with Jeremy’s brother, or hidden marital squabbles, things seem okay for them.

It’s great that they’re celebrating their anniversary like this — but we’re sure that they’re looking forward to being reunited with precious baby Ember.

Amy Roloff Celebrates Anniversary with Chris Marek, Posts GORGEOUS Photos

Amy Roloff has officially won this week.

We’re just gonna go ahead and call it now.

That’s what happens when you get to celebrate both a birthday and an anniversary mere days apart, spending time wth those you love and counting your blessing at every turn.

Indeed, the Little People, Big World star turned 52 years old on September 17.

She marked the occasion by gathering with close friends and family members, as documented in THIS PHOTO GALLERY.

Fast forward mere days and Amy marked a different special occasion with someone who may someday be a family member;

Long-time boyfriend Chris Marek.

As you can see above and below, in some rather intimate and downright gorgeous pictures, the TLC matriarch and her man got together on Saturday to celebrate two years as a couple.

Wrote Amy as a caption to these images:

Anniversary! What? Where did two years go?

It’s been a wonderful adventurous and full of lovely special moments of dating with this guy. So looking forward to the tomorrow’s and days ahead with him.

She concluded her heartfelt post with the hashtags:

#dating #anniversary #lotsoftime #lotsoflove #youandi #lifeisgood.

Marek is in the real estate business and, by all accounts, is a very nice guy who gets along very well with Amy’s children.

Sadly, however, for reasons that continue to defy our comprehension, so-called fans of Roloff don’t just give Marek a hard time…

… they say some really dumb and cruel things about the guy.

We’re not kidding around here.

We mean some REALLY dumb and mean things.

Thankfully, Amy keeps ignoring the haters and the trolls and just keep enjoying what she refers to as her “second act.

A much-deserved second act, we’d like to add.

Amy and Matt Roloff divorced back in early 2016.

They released an amicable statement at the time and have maintained a healthy relationship ever since.

Matt is seriously dating a woman named Caryn Chandler and both halves of this couple has moved on successfully, having established romances with their new significant others.

In this spirit, we’re just gonna go ahead and wish Amy and Chris all the best, while sending them our congratulations and posing one simple question to Marek:

When are you gonna put a ring on it, man?!?
