‘LPBW’: Fans Think Jacob Roloff Looks Like An ‘Amazing Uncle’ to His Nephews on Instagram
We’ve been watching the Roloff family since Little People, Big World first began nearly 15 years ago. And while Matt and Amy Roloff, as well as their four children, were all once starring on the show together, a lot has changed since then. Now, Zach Roloff and his wife, Tori, are the only ones aside from Matt and Amy who make regular appearances. And if there’s one Roloff who we’ll never expect on reality TV again, it’s Jacob.
Jacob left his LPBW career with a bang, and he’s stated before that he’ll never be on the show again. Even without being on TV, however, he’s still active on social media. And recent Instagram photos of him with his niece and nephew have everyone thinking he’s a fantastic uncle.
Jacob Roloff is one of the most controversial members of the family
If there’s any member of the Roloff family known for stirring the pot, it’s Jacob. He’s the youngest of the four siblings and was also the first one to leave the show behind. As he wrote in an Instagram post back in 2016, “For me, noticing how the agenda of the crew doesn’t work well with the health & happiness of our family is what made me decide quite a while ago that I would not be a part of it as soon as I was able.” He also added that his family members on-screen became the “Roloff characters” he wanted nothing to do with.
Not only that, but there was also talk that a family feud may have been occurring between Jacob and his father, Matt. A source told Radar Online that Jacob seemed to blame Matt for the divorce. “I think when his parents divorced he put a lot of the blame on his dad,” the source claimed. “His mom was hurting for a long time, and he believes Matt was the sole cause of that — like his dad is the one that blew up the whole family.”
He’s having his wedding reception on the family farm
Whether or not there was a family feud, we’re not completely sure. But it does seem like Matt and Jacob have completely cleared the air over the years, as Jacob is set to marry his fiancee, Isabel Rock, on the beach and then have his wedding reception on Roloff Farms on Sept. 7. And Matt has posted multiple photos with Jacob, as he’s preparing his son for the big day.
Not only that, but Matt just posted a video of Roloff Farms while they’re making all necessary preparations. And the dad seems ultra-excited to have his son have his reception on the farm property, as that’s where all the other Roloff kids tied the knot. “We are certainly working and laboring away here getting ready for Jacob and Izzy’s big day,” Matt said in the video. “We’re all excited about that — getting ready for a big event.”
Sadly, fans likely won’t get to see the full wedding, as Jacob is not allowing LPBW camera crews to film his big day. But fans are all happy that he’s still close enough with his family to have his reception on the farm.
Fans think Jacob looks like he’s an incredible uncle
After the wedding, are kids in Jacob’s future? Judging from the recent photos Amy posted to Instagram of all of her family together, it looks like Jacob would make an amazing father. A photo in this set shows Jacob with Ember, Jeremy’s daughter, and fans can’t get over the love. “Jacob seems so present with the kids. He is going to make a great father,” one fan said. Another added, “He looks at the kids with so much love in his eyes.” Another commented, “Jacob looks like he would be a wonderful uncle to both kids can you imagine how wonderful he will be to his own kids I thinks it’s awesome [sic].”
Will Jacob have kids of his own? That’s yet to be determined — though he has written at length about his opinions regarding kids being put on reality TV. So, if Jacob and his now-wife do choose to have children, we certainly don’t expect them to ever set foot on the set of LPBW.
