The Roloffs have been in the public eye for nearly a decade and a half, though a lot has changed for the family since the beginning of Little People, Big World. It all started with Matt and Amy Roloff, a little couple who shared their family and their Roloff Farms business with the cameras. Now, Matt and Amy are divorced — and while the split was amicable, there’s still a ton of tension between the ex-couple as they decide how to move forward with the farm.
Aside from Matt and Amy, there’s another couple with exciting news. Zach and Tori Roloff are expecting — but will they soon be ignored because of Matt and Amy’s constant squabbling? Here’s what we think.
Tori Roloff just announced she’s pregnant with baby No. 2
Zach and Tori Roloff may not have announced Tori’s pregnancy on the show, but the mom-to-be did make an adorable Instagram post to share the happy news. She posted a photo of her with Zach and their 2-year-old, Jackson, along with the caption, “Zachary and I are so excited to announce that Jackson is going to be a big brother! We are expecting a sweet baby girl this November!” Since we already know when Tori’s due and the gender of the baby, that means the family’s been keeping the pregnancy under wraps for a few months already.
This pregnancy announcement doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. On this season of Little People, Big World, Tori mentioned she was having “baby fever,” and Zach was totally on board with having more kids. They’ve mentioned in other interviews that they’d like to have a number of children, too. And the other Roloffs are already showing their excitement. “My heart is full of so much love over this. This grandma is so happy and for you both!” Amy Roloff commented.
Matt and Amy Roloff’s drama continues to be the focus of the show, however
Fans love Zach and Tori, but it seems Matt and Amy’s personal drama is taking over most of the air time on the show. On the current season of LPBW, the two are struggling to come to a compromise in regards to what they want to do with Roloff Farms. Matt is willing to sell the farm completely and move on with his life with girlfriend Caryn Chandler, but Amy remains uncertain. And more recently, it seems the two are fighting more than ever over Amy’s indecision.
Pop Culture notes Amy was just recently agonizing over the decision on the show once again. “Moving out of a house that I never really thought I’d move out of years ago. … to think about that now is a little daunting. It is a little scary, it’s a little intimidating because I’ve never really been on my own before,” she stated. Matt isn’t being too sympathetic to her cause, however, as he’s called her “selfish” in the past for dragging her feet.
Are Matt and Amy taking over the spotlight?
As exciting as the baby news is for Zach and Tori, some fans may think of them as pretty mundane. While they may be going through financial distress or Zach may have a few health issues here and there, Zach and Tori seem perfectly compatible. While that’s great for their relationship, it doesn’t necessarily make for the most compelling TV. And that’s where Matt and Amy come in.
Not only are Matt and Amy’s issues forced into the spotlight on the show, but their dynamics with their significant others also make for good TV. From the farm to their future relationships and their arguments between each other, Matt and Amy’s tension might just be why viewers are staying with the show.
This doesn’t necessarily mean the older Roloffs want to take over the spotlight, however. We’re sure we’ll see more about Zach and Tori as the show continues and as Tori’s pregnancy is eventually unveiled on screen.
