Over the years, fans of TLC’s family-friendly show Little People, Big World have watched as the Roloff clan navigated life’s bittersweet ups and downs, including the addition of grandkids and the reality of divorce.
In 2015 the show’s central couple, Matt and Amy Roloff, announced they were divorcing after nearly three decades together. The news surprised viewers, as well as the couple’s four children. The Roloff tribe remains strong and united in love however, and the Roloff family tree continues to grow.
Who are the members of this esteemed reality TV family? We’re glad you asked!
Matt Roloff is a San Francisco native, born in 1961. The Roloff family patriarch began his career in the software industry, and today continues his entrepreneurial spirit by managing several businesses including a large pumpkin farm in Oregon. Matt recently launched his new venture, Pumpkin Food Product Business.
He finds time for public speaking engagements across the globe and together with Amy remains a devoted, hands-on parent.
Amy Roloff, originally from Michigan, was born in 1962. Along with Matt she continues to appear in Little People, Big World and runs a philanthropic organization, Amy Roloff Charity Foundation. Amy’s group helps at-risk youth and disability groups.
The Roloff’s have twin sons, Jeremy and Zach, born in 1990, as well as daughter Molly Jo and younger son Jacob George.
Zach has achondroplasia and experienced numerous medical issues which significantly impacted his life as an athlete. Little People, Big World has brought a greater awareness to achondroplasia, the condition that Amy, Matt and Zach experience. Jeremy, Molly, and Jacob are all of average height.
It is the most common form of dwarfism. Nonetheless Zach now enjoys a career as a soccer coach and is married to Victoria Elizabeth, known to fans as Tori. The couple’s first child, Jackson Kyle was born May 12, 2017. Like his father, little Jackson has achondroplasia. There were recent rumors that Tori was pregnant again, but they were refuted by Amy.
Jeremy is married to Audrey Mirabella and they run a successful website devoted to improving Christian marriages. The couple welcomed their first child, Ember Jean, on September 10, 2017. Baby Ember Jean was not born with achondroplasia. Jeremy lives in L.A. with his family and he is a photography buff.
Molly Jo is the Roloff’s 24-year-old daughter. She is an accountant in Washington state and married Joel Silvius on August 5, 2017.
Jacob George is the Roloff’s 21-year-old son. He is engaged to his girlfriend Isabel Rock.
Are there any new branches budding on the Roloff family tree? That remains to be seen, but in the meantime you can catch up on the family’s adventures on TLC.
