Matt Roloff Celebrates Girlfriend Caryn Chandler’s Birthday in Sweet Post

Fans are so hyped now that the Season 14 trailer for Little People, Big World has finally dropped.

Not long after the teaser, Matt Roloff took to social media to give a birthday shoutout to girlfriend Caryn Chandler.

In the same post, he made a major production announcement about his family’s show.

Matt Roloff shared this precious group photo on Instagram.

“Love all these people!!” Matt captions the image.

As if there had been any doubt!

He then wishes “A very very happy birthday to my sweet girlfriend Caryn. …”

Despite the relationship’s controversy among some so-called fans, Caryn is a central part of his life and has been for years.

In the same caption, Matt also delivered a major produciton update for viewers of the family’s show.

“Today we wrapped filming the season of LPBW …” Matt shares.

(Note: sometimes, people of older generations uses elipses to create a pause in their words, even though it can read as hostility or frustration to younger folks on social media)

Matt then announces: “tomorrow it’s off to Arizona for a few weeks!”

Gosh, he and Caryn sure do love vacationing in Arizona.

So much so that they purchased a house together — from Caryn’s own parents.

The photo was very popular among fans.

“Love this family picture,” one followers writes. “Jackson and Ember are growing so fast.â€�

They really are! 

“You have a beautiful family,” raves another commenter. “I just love you all.”

“Tell Caryn Happy Birthday!!” that same fan continues. “Enjoy your time in [Arizona].”

We are sure that they will.

That production note, that they have wrapped filming, is amazing news for the Roloffs.

It’s also great news for fans, who are more than eager.

The latest trailer teased a great deal, including Matt and Caryn directly addressing the idea of becoming engaged and, eventually, married.

Some viewers of the show believe that Caryn is merely after fame or Matt’s money, but that is unfair.

Just watching them together makes their mutual love very clear.

The trailer teased more than just romance, however.

It looks like moving on with his life with Caryn may mean that Matt leaves farm life behind.

The problem is that Amy isn’t sure that she wants to part with her stake in the property.

Part of that is that she’s business-savvy and suspects that Matt knows something that she does not.

But part of it is just that, well, she knows that a buyout could mean that she never sees Roloff Farms again.

Amy tends to be cautious and to consider things, while Matt can be impulsive or event impatient.

Their clash is going to make for some interesting television.

Of course, the trailer also reminds viewers of Amy’s romance with boyfriend Chris Marek.

They’ve been dating for years and their love is palpable.

The same fans who disparage Caryn Chandler tend to also take aim at Chris.

Some of them simply want to see Amy and Matt get back together.

Some are much worse — and seem to carry and underlying belief that any person of average height dating a little person must have an agenda.

Whatever happened to two people falling in love?

Little People, Big World Season 14 Preview: A Family Divided?

Changes are on the way for the Roloffs.

Long-time followers of this beloved family are well aware of this, of course, simply based on recent social media posts and photos from Matt, Amy and company.

But these changes are especially prominent in the trailer for Little People, Big World Season 14.

Just released by TLC, the preview is notable for what it does depict and who it does not depict.

On the latter front, Audrey and Jeremy are no longer full-time cast members. They may be seen in the background here and there during family gatherings, but the couple has walked away from the series.

They stunned fans with this announcement last summer.

As a result, Matt, Amy, Tori, Zach and even their adorable Jackson are the ones front and center for the show’s new logo, which we wrote about HERE.

In a press release sent out this week by the cable network, we learn that Season 14 will consist of 10 episodes and that tension between Matt and Amy will be at the center of these new installments.

Here is a quote from this release:

“At the heart of the season lies the fate of Roloff Farms, as Matt and Amy consider if it’s possible to continue running the property together, while their increasingly separate lives and relationships are driving them further apart.”

We’ve written about this before.

Matt has purchased a part-time home in Arizona with girlfriend Caryn Chandler, while both he and Amy have hinted that they time running the family farm could be coming to an end.

The press release goes on to note that this will be “a season of self-discovery for everyone,” including Matt and Caryn, pondering “whether their future is in Oregon with the farm, or in Arizona, where they’re just purchased a home.”

The trailer is definitely intriguing.

It gives us a close look at Amy and her romance with Chris Marek, while also teasing a a health scare for Zach and far happier news for him and Tori welcome a new puppy.

Might this couple also be facing financial problems, however?“

“I’m way in over my head,” Zach laments at one point.

“This year, out of any of the other years, everything has changed for me,” Amy recently told People Magazine. “Chris makes me see life in a whole different way.”

The new season of Little People, Big World premieres on April 2 on TLC at 9/8c.

Check out the first footage here!

Caryn Chandler: Matt Roloff and Baby Jackson Have My Whole Heart!!

Little People, Big World star Matt Roloff has been hounded by engagement rumors for a while now.

To be fair, he and girlfriend Chandler are very close. She spends a lot of time with him — and with his family.

In the cutest new photo, the two of them are spending some quality time with their adorable grandbaby, Jackson.

Caryn Chandler posted a cozy pic of her with boyfriend Matt Roloff and precious baby Jackson Roloff.

Jackson is happily seated between the two adults, and they are all dressed in layers for warmth.

“It’s freezing in Portland …” Caryn acknowledges in her captions.

“But,” she continues. “My heart melts when I hang with these two.”

Good company really is the best way to endure any weather.

We cannot get over how unspeakably adorable baby Jackson’s face is in this photo. Just look at him!

Matt loved the pic so much that he shared it on his own Instagram.

“This little farmer is soooo easy to hang with!” Matt praised Jackson in the caption.

“He should write the book,” Matt suggested. “How to manage a grandpa!”

That is super cute.

Though some people believe that Caryn Chandler will murder Matt Roloff, most fans are onboard with this relationship.

That said, seeing Caryn go from employee to part of the family hasn’t been easy for everyone.

Almost a year ago, Amy Roloff opened up about how that romance impacts her as a grandmother.

“Seeing her with Jackson [and the other family members] … It’s difficult,â€� Amy confessed in May.

She admitted: “It’s definitely been the hardest thing to watch.”

Being honest with yourself about your feelings is the first step to working through them. Good for her for facing that head-on.

Caryn has been close to the Roloff family for a long time.

When Matt and Amy separated and divorced, it was a huge adjustment for everyone involved.

When they each began to date again, that too was a big deal for them and for their family.

But Matt is dating Caryn and Amy is dating Chris Marek.

Some fans still grumble or hurl wild accusations that these new love interests are just gold diggers or interested in fame.

But most care about Amy and Matt and are thrilled to see them so happy.

Unfortunately, there is a dark side to some of the trolls who like to bash Caryn and Chris.

The best of them just wanted to see Matt and Amy reconcile because they liked them as a couple.

(Even then, they shouldn’t be bombarding anyone with hate)

The worst of them — the ones who seem so suspicious of Caryn and Chris — are dealing with prejudice.

It seems that some of them just don’t believe that a tall person would fall in love with a little person.

They need to work through their issues and get those horrible misconceptions out of their minds. People fall in love all of the time.

Matt and Amy’s kids had to adjust to their parents’ new love lives, but they’re all adults.

But this is nothing but a boon to their grandchildren, who essentially get two more grandparents out of the deal.

It’s so sweet to see Caryn and Matt spending time with Jackson.

We’re glad that they are all keeping warm during this cold weather.

We know that the winter has been intense, but a lot of us will be missing these temps in a few months.

Amy Roloff Fans Slam Chris Marek, Question His "Creepy" Motives

Little People, Big World star Amy Roloff is living her best life, but fans continue to demand to know when she’ll get engaged to Chris Marek.

After her latest romantic getaway with her boyfriend, some of Amy’s fans and followers are growing suspicious.

Some accuse Chris of being downright creepy.

“Costa Pura Vida,” Amy writes on Instagram. “Beautiful country and people.”

She and boyfriend Chris Marek went on a stunning romantic vacation for Valentine’s Day.

“Great R&R time w/ Chris and friends,” Amy writes. “Time to say audios until maybe next time.”

“We’re ready to come home,” her caption concludes. “Because there’s no place like ‘home’.”

“Chris and I had a great time in Costa Rica,” Amy tells her fans and followers in a thoughtful video.

“It was a good R&R,” she shares.

“But,” Amy continues. “Like everything else, we’re ready to go home.”

She explains: “I’m ready to see my grandkids and get back to life.”

“And,” she adds. “Figure out Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen.”

It is no surprise to longtime followers that Amy found a way to plug her products in the video.

“And,” Amy adds. “Continue on with my book. A whole bunch of other stuff.”

“Life’s back home,” she affirms.

“But you can hear the fountain,” Amy notes. “The pool area.”

“It’s been great,” she gushes. “Costa Rica’s been wonderful, and I hope to be back.”

“Anyway, back to cold weather,” she says. “Back to normal. Back to reality. And that’s a good place to be.”

(Not everyone would enjoy tropical weather, but clearly Amy does)

Amy roloff is gorgeous

Amy’s cheerful posts and photos didn’t bring a smile to everyone’s face, however.

Some took aim at Amy’s relationship with Chris Marek — and were especially critical of Chris himself.

“Didn’t buy the cow,” notes one hater. “Gets the milk for free. Shame on you both!”

We’re still comparing women to livestock and shaming people for not being married? What year is it?

“What’s his motive?” another demands to know. “Why can’t he commit?”

“He’s creepy,” accuses one commenter.

“I wish he’d ask for your hand in marriage,” laments a nosey troll.

“I wish he’d surprise you with a ring,” writes another hater, noting that Chris had given her a Valentine’s card.”

That same commenter continues: “Praying God gives you wisdom regarding the situation. Enjoy!”

“Hum no ring,” another observed.

Fortunately, Amy did see plenty of much nicer fans leave much more supportive comments.

You know, like actual fans.

Amy roloff gets mean comments after valentines vacation 01

First and foremost, Amy is a grown woman, She and Chris are consenting adults.

If someone has a personal religious or non-religious reservation about non-marital sex, that’s valid … for them. It’s purely their business.

Similarly, Amy’s romance with Chris is purely her business. She doesn’t ever have to marry him or anyone else.

Second of all, there are a lot of people who think that Chris is just “using” Amy for fame or somesuch.

Even if Amy appeases the people cranky about non-marital “milk,” those people will freak out if she and Chris get hitched.

Finally, the suspicious about motives crowd really needs to lay off, because they’re being ableist and insulting.

They’re implying that Chris couldn’t just be interested in Amy because she’s a beautiful, intelligent woman.

Their implication is that because she is a little person, Chris must have some ulterior motive for dating her.

That is a sickening, ableist suggestion.

Cut it out.

Jeremy Roloff Stuns Fans With Dramatic New Haircut!

Well this is a national tragedy. A global catastrophe.

Jeremy Roloff, who is not feuding with his brother, made a pledge to cut off his glorious mane of hair if his charity goal was reached.

The charity threshold was met, and Jeremy’s hair went on the chopping block. There’s a video, if you can bear it.

Jeremy roloff hair goodbye

“Well, it happened,” Jeremy writes in the captions of a teaser video on Instagram.

He follows those words with a scissors emoji.

If you immediately feared the worst — that he has cut his hair — you are sadly correct.

“And I’d be lying if I didn’t say it’s bitter sweet,” he admits.

Jeremy provides context: “I’ve been growing my hair since September 2014.”

“But I needed a change,” he claims. “And it’s for a good cause.”

“Speaking of change,” Jeremy continues.

“Because of you who decided to give,” he writes. “We will be changing the lives of over 500 folks.”

These are people, Jeremy explains, “who currently don’t have access to clean drinking water.”

That is a plight known by so many people. We’re glad that his sacrifice is making a real difference.

“So thank you!” he says.

Jeremy roloff ties back his hair

Jeremy even reveals some numbers.

“We raised just over 15k for @charitywater,” Jeremy writes.

As you would assume, Charity Water is an organization dedicated to bringing access to clean water to those who do not have it.

“And with their 1:1 model,” he continues. “Every dollar will go toward water projects.”

Jeremy congratulates his fans and followers: “Nice work you guys!!”

Jeremy roloff walks ember jean to his haircut

“Thanks @jackbotti For the rad video per usual,” he notes.

As you can see in the video that we included, it is a well put together video, even if the subject matter is heartbreaking.

“If you don’t already,” Jeremy suggests. “And you like good videos, give him a follow!”

He then teases that, at the end of the full video, fans and followers can see Ember’s reaction.

That is true enough.

The video ends with Audrey desperately, desperately trying to get a reaction out of precious baby Ember Jean.

See, some babies do not take it well the first time that they see a parent with different hair (or with or without a beard).

It’s not a lack of object permanence, it’s because they are still working out how to recognize faces — and we all struggle with that sometimes.

Ember could clearly not give a flip.

Maybe she’s hungry or sleepy or doesn’t know what to make of Jeremy’s horrific new hairdo.

Maybe Ember is just observing a moment of silence for her father’s late, great, glorious mane.

Jeremy roloff haircut gif 02

You can see the final, unspeakable version of Jeremy’s hair in the video that we have included with this post.

Obviously, it is Jeremy’s hair.

As with the rest of his body, he can do with it as he pleases.

But that doesn’t mean that the rest of us can’t pour one out in memory of the magnificent hair that was.

Jeremy lost the hair, but the world lost a work of art.

Now, Jacob is burdened with being the Roloff man with best hair.

It’s all on his shoulders, now.

Amy Roloff Reveals Health Goals and "Purge" Plans for 2019

Over the holidays, Amy Roloff was busy with Molly’s rare visit.

She’s only just now getting around to discussing her New Year’s Resolution — and she hasn’t even taken down her tree.

Amy is sharing her plan to lose weight this year, her plan to purge her home, and how she plans to go about it.

Amy roloff discusses new years resolutions

Over the weekend, Amy Roloff shared a short series of videos to Instagram.

Within the first video, she shows her fans and followers her garage, and explains how taking care of mess is one of her big priorities.

She also explains that she wants to take care of herself better by being mindful.

In the other two, she shows them inside of her home, where her Christmas tree is still up and decorated.

She talks about New Year’s Resolutions and why she has chosen “purpose” as a word on which to focus in 2019.

She even reveals that she got the idea from her son, Jeremy.

“It’s Sunday afternoon and it’s kind of cloudy and I went to church with Chris,” Amy says, setting the stage for her video.

She has been with Chris Marek for a long time, and things between them are pretty serious.

“And,” Amy says, she is “just putting away all my Christmas stuff.”

“You’re going to see my garage here,” Amy admits. “I’ve got all my Christmas stuff, my fall pumpkin season stuff.”

“And some of my purging,” she says. “That’s my goal this year, 2019, is to purge.”

To be clear, she’s talking about getting rid of things that she no longer wants or needs in order to reduce clutter.

Amy roloff thanksgiving spread

Amy also talks about 2019 Resolutions and goals and how she wants a little more substance to hers.

“Everyone’s goal is just weight,” she laments.

“I just really want to be purposeful in what I eat, why am I eating what I’m eating and exercising,” Amy explains.

She is “trying to get down a routine of some sort that I can continue to maintain because, as you guys all know, I love to cook!”

“Just doing better at it” is her goal. “Or just eating better.”

“New Year – striving to still be me and better,” Amy captions the video. “Life is good.”

“What is your new year goals and/or word for the year?” she asks her followers. “I hope you’re off to a good start.”

Amy roloff and chris marek thanksgiving 2018

“As we set New Year’s Resolutions or set goals or whether you pick a word,” Amy begins another video.

“That seems to be the ‘in’ thing,” Amy says. “And I love that because I got that from my son, Jeremy.”

“I chose the word ‘purpose,'” Amy shares. “And whatever I do in my life, I want it to have a purpose.”

“Because I’m hoping that it helps someone, it brightened up their day,” she explains. “It put a smile on their face.”

“I think for me, that has purpose to it,” she says. “Meaningful purpose.”

Amy roloff snaps selfie with molly roloff and chris marek

“It’s not only losing weight, but how do I think about my health?” Amy asks in the next video.

“What do I think about as I sit on my couch or at my office at my desk?” she continues.

“There’s a purpose to that,” Amy acknowledges. “But the purpose of losing weight, to me, is about health.”

“Finding something that I can continue to maintain,” she says. “Refocusing myself, that nutrition, and moving — physically moving.”

That, she says, “has purpose to go towards losing weight.”

“I know that I won’t lose weight in two weeks, in a month,” Amy admits. “But I want losing weight to be a goal.”

“But the purpose is to have a life-changing attitude and mindset,” Amy concludes.”

That makes a whole lot of sense, and we wish Amy the best in setting and meeting her sustainable goals!

In fact, we hope that everyone is successful in attaining the happiness, health, and prosperity that they deserve in 2019.

Tori Roloff Reveals Baby Jackson Had a Medical Emergency at Disneyland

Tori Roloff took to Instagram to share that her son, sweet baby Jackson Roloff, had experienced a medical scare.

Instead of going through with their Disneyland plans, Tori had to take her baby to a doctor.

See her harrowing story, including photos and videos, below:

Jackson roloff at the doctors office

“We’re supposed to be in Disneyland,” Tori shared with a heavy heart.

As her fans and followers could immediately see, they were instead in a doctor’s office.

Jackson, she revealed, had “got nursemaid’s in line for Peter Pan.”

She is referring to nursemaid elbow, a condition that usually appears in toddlers and preschool-age children in which a ligament falls out of place.

The painful condition usually arrises when a child is lifted by or near the wrist.

Also known as pulled elbow or, more formally, as radial head subluxation, this can usually be treated pretty easily at the doctor’s.

Jackson roloff meets mickey mouse

This story does, ultimately, have a happy ending.

Tori reveals in her Instagram Stories that Jackson’s condition “had already been reduced by the time we got to Urgent Care.”

“But,” she continues. “We got him checked out anyway.”

That is the correct course of action.

Children with nursemaid elbow will sometimes hold their arm immobile in order to avoid the pain that comes from moving it.

That does not mean that the symptoms are gone.

And, in general, if your small child is suddenly in pain, you want to make sure that it’s over — for their sake.

Jackson roloff meets mickey

Tori shared a longer post, summarizing the entire ordeal — and the happy ending.

“What a day,” Tori began.

We’ve all had days that end with that line.

“It started out pretty miserable,” Tori explained, then pivoted: “Actually, it was great at first.”

Tori wrote that she enjoyed “driving to Disneyland.”

She added that they made haste to “getting in line for our favorite ride (Peter Pan).”

“That’s where things went south,” Tori explains.

Tori roloff keeps baby jackson roloff safe

“Jackson is prone to nursemaids elbow,” Tori explains.

Some children are more prone to it than others — and we’re not referring to mistreatment by a caretaker as the cause for the propensity.

Tori speculates that it “could be a dwarfism thing or it could just be a Jackson thing.”

Different children develop at different rates, so some elbows may be more prone to this condition.

But, at the same time, some kids are just a little more rambunctious.

“He was pulling away from me in line,” Tori explains. “And it happened.”

Jackson roloff wears a lifejacket

“I knew right away that we were in trouble,” Tori shares. “And Jackson would need to see a doctor.”

The only good thing about having a kid who is prone to the condition is that you know how to deal with it after that first time.

“I was so bummed,” she admits.

“We got to go back to Disneyland,” she adds, after their trip to see the doctor.

She says that things were better then, writing: “(with lots of cuddles and some Tylenol behind us).”

As you can see in the video that we have included, Jackson got to watch Mickey Mouse put on a show, and was back to his happy self.

He also met Mickey and, when offered a five, left Mickey hanging.

Baller move, dude.
