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.

Tori Spelling: SLAMMED By Fans For “Drunk” Instagram Video

Tori Spelling has had problems these past few years.

In fact, she’s had just about every kind of problem you can think of — and she appears to be hell-bent on making all of them worse.

Tori has gone bankrupt and she seems intent on spending her way into an even deeper hole.

Tori has nearly divorced Dean McDermott but has opted instead to tough it out, despite allegations of infidelity, pyramid schemes, and generally being a colossal d-bag.

At one point, Tori even fell down at a Benihana and burned her hand on a grill.

Like we said, think of a problem that’s not “not being born to a life of unimaginable privilege” and Tori has experienced it.

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that the mother of five appears to be hitting the bottle a bit these days.

Or so her fans think.

According to Radar Online, Tori uploaded an Instagram story over the weekend in which she appeared to be heavily intoxicated — in the presence of her kids.

It seems Spelling was hanging out at the home of her friend, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles star Josh Flagg, when she posted the slurry video to her page

“Josh has chosen to watch one of my movies, Troop Beverly Hills, so I’m going to walk in the kitchen and see what’s up!” she told the camera at one point.

“Are you really doing a fridge tour?” Tori’s confused 11-year-old son Liam asked.

And it seems the former reality star’s followers were just as perplexed by her behavior.

“Are you drunk?” asked one commenter.

“Yo, you been drinking girl?” another remarked.

“Are you hammered?” a third commented.

Tori didn’t reply, but a second Instagram clip may have answered those questions.

In the video, Tori could be seen screaming while rolling around with her kids on Flagg’s bed.

The stories were quickly deleted, but it seems fans have yet to forget Tori’s tipsy upload.

She posted a new story today, and many of the comments had to do with her boozy weekend.

“Not drunk today?” a fan commented on Tori’s latest IG story.

That’s the internet in 2018 for you.

You can delete whatever you want, but that doesn’t mean it’s forgotten.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott: FINALLY Saving Their Marriage?!

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have not had the easiest time in recent years, and their relationship has paid the price.

The good news is that Tori and Dean are finally fixing their marriage — and it’s made a world of difference.

And the fact that they’ve entered marriage counseling is only part of the solution.

An inside source spoke extensively with Entertainment Tonight about Tori and Dean’s relationship and how much it’s changed in just a few months.

The insider shares that the two of them have “started counseling” in order to mend the strained elements of their union.

“Tori and Dean are very much in love,” the source explains. “And have dedicated themselves to improving their marriage.”

That sounds like what is best for them and for their many, many children.

“They built a family together,” the source continues. “And plan on raising their kids as a team.”

Last March, unfortunately, there was a frightening incident — and Dean felt that he had no choice but to call the police.

“They realized things got completely out of hand when their blowout fights became very public,” the insider shares.

Hey, whatever works as a wakeup call.

“As painful as that period has been in their life,” the source continues. “It was also very eye-opening for them.”

Sometimes, you have to hit rock bottom to realize how far you’ve fallen.

Ever the optimists, the two of them have decided to put a positive spin on an otherwise frightening incident.

“Tori and Dean see Tori’s experience as a nervous breakthrough rather than a nervous breakdown,” the insider reveals.

You know what? That’s actually kind of beautiful. So long as they don’t forget to take mental health seriously.

“Because,” the source explains. “It led them back to the right path and a healthier life together.”

If it works, it works.

Apparently what prompted them to redouble their efforts to patch things up was staring into the potential abyss that would come with a divorce.

“They both looked at what they were giving up by losing one another,” the insider describes.

Whatever they foresaw of their potentially single futures, it was clearly not a pretty picture.

“And,” the source continues. “Were willing and ready to do what it takes to make their relationship work.”

Good for them!

It sounds like things have really turned around over the past several months.

Perserverance pays off.

“They started counseling again,” the insider confirms. “And turned everything around.”

“They realized that most of their stress stemmed from their money issues,” the source says.

We think that literally everyone else who knows anything about the couple could have said that a long time ago.

“They’re now working closely with an accountant to help fix their financial situation,” the insider assures ET. “They’ve since made some big changes.”

One huge change is that Dean is acting again.

Apparently, a lot of the pressure on their marriage has now “lifted” as a result.

“Their family dynamic is completely different,” the source reveals.

“Tori loves Dean and wants him to have success,” the insider continues. “She also wants her mother to be happy.”

“She’s relied on her mother for help and her mother has always felt Dean needed to contribute,” the source explains. “So this is truly a win-win situation.”

Just because your mom is loaded doesn’t mean that she’s going to fund your entire family’s lifestyle — but Tori’s mom has helped out a lot.

Tori also came to terms with a huge source of stress — trying to be a nonstop parent to all five of her children without any time for self-care.

“She never gave herself a break,” the insider reports.

“Now,” the source is happy to say. “She’s balancing everything with the help of some extra childcare.”

It sounds like both counseling and an improved financial situation have really helped.

“Having full-time help is expensive,” the insider admits. “But taking care of five children on your own is close to impossible.”

Then there is the subject of Tori’s career.

“Tori definitely wants to work again,” the source shares. “And is considering several reality show opportunities,”

However, some of those close to her are nudging her in a different direction.

“But,” the insider continues. “Her team seems to be encouraging her to go back to scripted television,”

That’s her bread and butter. It could also really help to reduce her real-life drama.

“First and foremost,” the source explains. “Tori is an actress, and some of her closest friends now support the idea of returning to scripted television.”

On scripted television, the show’s not all about you, but it tends to bleed into your real life a little less.

“They feel taking some of the focus away from her personal life would be helpful,” the insider concludes. “And she is beginning to warm up to the idea.”

Well that is definitely exciting. More job opportunities and fewer 9-1-1 calls are at least part of a recipe for a happy, healhty marriage.

Tori Roloff Achieves Milestone, Sends Message to Fans

Tori Roloff isn’t interested in looking forward right now.

She knows you’re wondering about the state of her womb.

She knows you’re curious if she and Zach Roloff will soon have a second child.

But the Little People, Big World star would like to take a break from all that speculation for a few moments.

Earlier this week, Roloff took a look at her own Instagram page and marveled at the top: 800,000.

Yes, she really has 800,000 followers. And she simply can’t believe it.

“So I woke up this morning to 800,000 followers,” Tori wrote as a heartfelt caption to the contemplative photo above, adding:

“That’s pretty freaking rad if you ask me.

“It’s the most humbling thing in the world to think you guys care enough to follow along on my journey of life marriage motherhood and just doing fun things.”

Tori hasn’t done anything especially scandalous or, let’s be candid, risque in order to earn these followers.

She doesn’t pose in scantily-clad outfits and she doesn’t make outlandish statements.

The TLC personality pretty much just shares pictures of her son and/or her husband and keeps fans apprised of their lives on a near-daily basis.

But it’s this portrayal of a simple, content life that has garnered Roloff such a following.

Heck, Roloff recently told the entire Internet about the recent time her son covered himself in feces.

(They were his own feces, at least.)

“I just wanted to say thanks. I sometimes forget that it’s not just my friends and family that watch my stories and that there are lots of people who enjoy watching my family grow and evolve (still crazy to me),” Tori continued.

Roloff has said in the past that she aims to be a positive influences on the Internet.

That may sound like a lofty goal, but she simply means that it’s her mission to remain mostly happy and sunny online, as she aims to serve as a role model to other women and mothers.

This may be another reason why her follower count as climbed to such an impressive leve.

Along those lines, scroll down to see how Roloff concluded her milestone post…

I try to use my platform for good. I try and keep it real. I’m far from perfect and try to share that with young women like me and ensure them it’s okay.

You guys have made this journey amazing and I’ve loved being able to meet some of you! Again-thanks for following along.

Thanks for hitting 800k with me- for someone who does not think of herself as a celebrity that made me feel pretty cool.

No, Tori, thank YOU.

For being a great mother, a loving wife and living proof that good things actually can happen to nice people.

Tori and Zach Roloff star on a reality television show that documents their lives.

But still.

How well do you feel like you really know these Little People, Big World stars?

The couple manages to be an open book, but it also manages to NOT reveal every single chapter of their story.

With this in mind, we're put together a list of facts and tidbits that may surprise even the most ardent of Zach and Tori followers.

Were you aware of each of the items listed below?

1. Tori Worked at Roloff Farms!

Adorable on thanksgiving
It’s true. She met Zach because she was hired in 2010 to help out with the very busy pumpkin season. “A coworker told me, ‘Zachary really thinks you’re cute, but doesn’t think you’ll ever go out with him,'” Tori once told People.

2. It Was Love at First Sight

Jackson tori and zach
Or close to it, at least. “Our first date lasted five hours, and we’ve been together ever since,” Tori told People in this same interview. How sweet, right?

3. Tori Was Zach’s First

His first GIRLFRIEND, that is. We can’t speak on anything else. But Zach once told People that he “never really dated” before meeting his wife.

4. The Couple Got Married on TV!

TLC aired the 2015 ceremony; which, of course, was attended by all of Zach’s famous loved ones. “My parents played a huge role in setting up the farm, making it all nice,” said Zach back then, while Tori added: “Matt planted a bunch of wheat fields behind the gazebo. There’s like these huge rolling hills of wheat, which are really beautiful.”

5. Tori’s Maiden Name is Patton

Tori Roloff Breaks Biggest News Yet About Precious Son

This has been quite a week for young Jackson Roloff.

First, as hilariously documented by his famous mother, the one-year old went ahead and covered himself with pretty much ALL the poop earlier this week.

Really, this actually happened.

But Jackson has now rebounded from this embarrassing incident and managed to focus attention on him elsewhere.

Specifically, from his very messy crib and body to his very impressive and nimble feet.

That’s right, folks, Jackson Roloff is now walking all by himself!

In a video Tori Roloff shared to her Instagram Stories page on July 30, we get a pretty clear glimpse at the toddler taking a few of his first steps.

And, for good reason, Tori could not be more proud or excited.

“So in case no one told you guys, Baby J is walking,” Tori captioned her video, adding in a second piece of special footage: You’re so big!”

We don’t want to get all sappy or cheesy here, but this really is a pretty awesome occasion for those of us who have been following Jackson and his parents ever since the tiny Little People, Big World star was born.

He entered the world in mid-May of 2018 and has become a rising Instagram sensation ever since.

Okay, perhaps we’re exaggerating a little bit there.

But Tori and husband Zach Roloff have been generous enough to share a steady stream of photos of their firstborn ever since he became a full-fledged human being.

Each month for the first dozen of Jackson’s life, Tori would provide fans with a helpful update on what he’s been up to and what he is now able to do.

To wit, when Jackson turned a year old:

Of late, however, fans have been wondering just when Zach and Tori might give Jackson a sibling.

Just a few days ago, Roloff hinted that a second baby might be on the way.

Zach, for his part, has made it clear that he “definitely” wants more kids, stating as much during an episode of Little People, Big World this summer.

But Tori said the family has to get a dog before she even considers procreating again…

… and would you look at THIS, they now have a dog!

They also have a bright future on TLC.

Last month, Jeremy and Audrey Roloff announced they were leaving the series that made them famous.

However, Tori was quick to assure fans that she and Zach had no similar plans any time soon.

“We’re not going anywhere!” Tori announced on her Instagram Story in July, adding at the time:

“We feel like we’re not done telling our story.”

That makes us so happy to hear.

And speaking of happy… way to go, Jackson! Great work on that walking!!!

Tori Roloff Posts Picture of Son Covered in Poop

Tori Roloff may be thinking twice about having a second child right about now.

We kid, of course.

Children are a blessing and Tori and Zach Roloff seem like outstanding parents whose influence on a new generation can only help the world become a better place.

But still.

Tori just shared as personal and as hilarious a photo as one can share of his or her offspring, and it sheds light on the occasional downside of parenting.

Or the occasional smelly side, we guess we should say.

Tori, who recently made us cry with her anniversary tribute to husband Zach, just made us spit out our coffee with laughter over an image of one-year old son Jackson covered in human feces.

They’re his own feces, at least.

But they are feces, nonetheless.

“I share this with the risk of getting mom shamed (again- and for real I don’t care I don’t get humans sometimes),” Roloff wrote to open the caption that accompanies the following picture, prior to adding:

“This is for all those mamas out there that sometime feel like they are sinking. That’s been me this week.”

Tori then proceeded to explain how she came across her only child in the rather dirty state you can see him in above.

“Here’s hoping this brings you a good laugh and hopefully you’re Day was better than mine:

“Started out with my husband waking up sick- his headache can’t move I’m dying sick. Now we did get to enjoy a lovely day with friends by the pool but that’s where the fun ended.”

Okay, go on…

“I came home to Zach still being sick so I tried to play hard ball and get him up and moving- bad idea. He threw up on our front porch because he couldn’t make it to the bathroom (I guess I should be thankful it wasn’t inside).”

Yikes. Sorry to hear all this, Zach.

And sorry if the details below will be enough to make our readers sick…

Roloff said she had to hose off her husband’s vomit from the front porch. From there?

“I then come back inside to relax but heard Jackson awake in his crib. He often wakes up and just hangs quietly. I needed the extra time so I left him a couple minutes.

“After about 20 min I went in his room… this is where it gets bad. I noticed something on his face (of course I think it’s blood or something and start freaking out).”

And what was that something,Tori?

“As I moved closer the smell overcame me. I noticed brown spread all over his sheets and crib- and oh ya- that’s poop… IN HIS HAIR!!!!

“To make matters worse… we don’t currently have hot water in our house so I had to drive to another house to bathe him.”

Wow, huh?

Also: EWWW!

Also: LOL!

And also this: Nearly every parent on the planet has been there, Tori.

This is most definitely NOT something to feel shame over.

Taking as positive an approach as she can, the Little People, Big World star concluded:

“So ya. That’s my day. If you were having a rough day I hope this helps. I can laugh now that Jackson is asleep in a throughly scrubbed crib.

“ALSO: first time parents: never. Ever. Under any circumstances. Put your child to bed in just a diaper. Just don’t do it. We all have those days. Today involved both vomit and poop. I mean can tomorrow get any worse?

“Don’t answer that. #momlife #babyjroloff.”

We so appreciate the honesty. Thank you, Tori.

This TLC star recently hinted that she and Zach were strongly considering a second child, making us excited for even more stories such as this down the line.

After all, you know what they say, right?

Sometimes you need to laugh in order not to cry your eyes out.

Tori Roloff Posts Ultimate Anniversary Tribute to Husband

The competition is apparently on between Tori Roloff and Audrey Roloff.

On Father’s Day this year, Audrey gushed and gushed and gushed over her husband, Jeremy, praising him for his faith and his dedication to his family.

It was an incredibly sweet message.

But Tori may have just topped it.

On the occasion of her third wedding anniversary, Tori has gone ahead and made it impossible for any other spouse to ever wish a happy anniversary to his or her spouse ever again.

Why?

Because he or she will never be able to surpass the sweetness of Tori’s message about Zach.

“I just can’t quite comprehend how I get to live out my life next to this man. Zach you are hands down the best husband I could ever ask for,” the TLC star wrote on Instagram last night alongside the picture above.

The Little People, Big World twosome originally said, “I do” in front of approximately 200 people in a Roloff Family Farm ceremony on July, 25 2015.

Just under two years later, they welcomed a son named Jackson Kyle into the world.

Continued Tori in her tribute:

“I’m so thankful for your grace and your patience. You help me be a better version of myself every single day. I love your heart and your thoughtfulness.

“You are always quick to put others before yourself and it’s something I truly believe the world needs more of.”

Man. Is it getting misty in here or is it just us?

Tori recently confirmed that she and Zach are either trying for a second child right now or will be in the near future.

She sounds very excited to give Jackson a sibling.

But not as excited as she was on Instagram to talk up her husband of three years.

“You are always quick to put others before yourself and it’s something I truly believe the world needs more of,” she wrote of Zach, concluding with a flourish:

I have loved watching you become a dad and it’s made me fall more in love with you. Marriage isn’t always the easiest thing to do but I’m thankful I have the best partner in life to navigate it and make it stronger every day.

I have so enjoyed these last three years and I can’t wait for many many many more happy years with you. I love you babe uh.

Happy anniversary zachys! #storyofzachandtori

We love it.

Just so honest, open and romantic.

Tori and Zach met back when the former was working on the Roloff farm in 2010.

“I was working at Roloff Farms during pumpkin season as a greeter and one of our co-workers introduced us,” Tori said on Little People, Big World awhile back.

Added Zach at the time:

“[We] just started talking and she kept coming over. Her being average height, me being a dwarf, people obviously stare…

“She was my first kiss. It was an epic night. It was on the roof of the swamp fort. Full moon right above us. Like, primetime. It was prime.”

These two are prime.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott: FINALLY Getting Divorced?!

Rumors about Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott getting divorced have been circulating since … well, about the time that the troubled couple got married.

But this time around, it seems Dean has actually taken steps toward bringing an end to what might be Hollywood’s most dysfunctional marriage.

According to Radar Online, McDermott has moved out on Spelling and is expected to file for divorce in the near future.

Sources tell the site that Dean moved out after spending the Fourth of July holiday with Tori and their five children.

He reportedly has not been back to the house since.

“Tori’s behavior has sent him to a breaking point,” says one insider.

That behavior includes a number of emotional breakdowns, the worst of which prompted Dean to call the cops on Tori for behaving erratically.

After those episodes, Spelling and McDermott assured fans that they’re still married, but they’ve been quiet in the weeks since.

Tori’s recent mental health issues may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back, but they certainly weren’t the first sign of trouble for her and Dean.

For years, fans have been expecting a divorce announcement, as the couple continues to make headlines with their marital issues.

The trouble seems to have started when Dean was caught cheating on Tori with mistress Emily Goodhand.

To say the years that followed weren’t always kind to the McDermott clan would be a massive understatement.

Tori and Dean went broke, drove up seven-figure debts to their creditors, and were forced to downsize to a much smaller home in not-so-posh Encino.

Their financial stresses show no signs of letting up, and just last year, Dean was almost imprisoned for failure to pay child support to his first wife.

Needless to say, it’s not hard to see how all of this might have put a considerable strain on Tori and Dean’s marriage.

Reports the couple is on the brink of calling it quits date back to early 2018, when sources say they began living separate lives.

“Tori and Dean have been sleeping in separate bedrooms for the past six weeks,” a family insider told Radar back in April.

“Things have been very bad at home between them.”

Spelling and McDermott have been quiet on the matter thus far, but if we know them, they’re feverishly pitching a reality show about their crumbling marriage at this very moment.

Tori Roloff Confirms: Baby #2 is on the Way!

For Tori Roloff and Zach Roloff, the cat is now out of the bag.

In the form of a very cute dog, that us.

Confused? Allow us to explain…

A few weeks back on Little People, Big World, Zach and Tori talked about having a second child.

Yes, precious son Jackson is just over a year old, but fans of the couple are clearly anxious about just when he’ll be joined by a sibling.

And they aren’t alone: Zach is anxious, too!

“Being a dad’s been great. Jackson’s the cutest little thing,” he said on the aforementioned installment. “I would love to have, like, a little pack. I definitely want to have more kids.”

Tori, of course, gets a rather big say in this plan, however, and she responded to her husband’s statement thusly:

Let’s get a dog first. Until then, my “shop is closed.” (LOL, right?)

Fast forward a few weeks and … look! Down below! The Roloffs have adopted a dog!

This is very cute and very exciting… and also very revealing?

Does it mean that Tori’s “shop” is once again open (LOL again, right?) and that the famous couple will soon be trying for baby number-two?

Many astute viewers and readers responded to the arrival of the puppy above by wondering this very same thing.

murphy response

Tori, meanwhile, then made the mistake of telling her followers to ask her anything — which prompted this very question.

Is the shop open again? Can we start to get excited for another adorable Roloff child in the near future?

“LOL, I can’t believe I said this on national television,” Tori responded, referring to how she basically told millions of viewers that she would be halting the spreading of her for her husband.

She then added:

“We def want to expand our family soon.”

So there you have it!

tori family

Folks really need to chill out now for a little bit.

Yes, the way this has played out has been funny and enjoyable.

But it’s a very big deal to decide to have a second child and, to be frank, it can also be a difficult ordeal.

It’s really none of our business just when Zach or Tori (or anyone) has a kid. Let’s leave them in peace until they eventually spill the exciting news that a baby really is on the way.

And if that day never comes… whatever! It’s their life and their choice.

Elsewhere, these Roloffs have made a choice to remain on Little People, Big World.

Earlier this month, Jeremy Roloff surprised fans by announcing he and wife Audrey were done with the series.

However, “we’re not going anywhere,” Tori said shortly afterward, because “we feel like we’re not done telling our story.”

This is wonderful news because we’re not done learning about their story.

Expect new episodes of Little People, Big World to air late this year or early next year.
