We remember when Matt and Amy Roloff’s kids were barely teens — and now that Little People, Big World has been on the air for almost 15 years, we’ve watched them grow up on-screen. Zach, the only Roloff child to have dwarfism, is now married to Tori Roloff. And Jeremy, Zach’s twin, is married to Audrey. Both Zach and Jeremy have a child each, too — and they’re gearing up to expand their families, as both of their wives are happily pregnant.
From marriage to their first children to their second pregnancies, the timing of Zach and Jeremy’s lives has always seemed to line up perfectly. But Jeremy has strong words for fans who think Audrey and Tori planned their second pregnancies together.
Audrey and Tori Roloff are set to have their second babies 5 weeks apart
LPBW fans adore Audrey and Tori’s kids. While Zach and Tori and their son, Jackson, are still featured as regulars on the show, Jeremy and Audrey chose to take a step away from the reality TV spotlight. Even so, both families are active on social media — and they both announced their second pregnancies with adorable photos on Instagram.
“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!” Tori captioned this Instagram post back in mid-May. And Audrey posted her pregnancy announcement on July 1. “Baby #2 is coming in January!!! Ember is gonna be a big sister!”
On Audrey and Jeremy’s podcast, “Behind the Scenes,” they also recently said just how close the two pregnancies are, too. According to the couple, they’re a mere five weeks apart — and their first children are also only four months apart.
Fans suspected they planned this
LPBW fans are ecstatic to learn that more Roloff babies are on the way — but they certainly thought it wasn’t a mere coincidence that Audrey and Tori are pregnant at the same time. On Tori’s Instagram announcement, Audrey even added her own sweet comment that caused fan speculation. “Wahoooooo CANT WAIT FOR THE GIRLSIES TO HANGGGGG. I’m so happy for you Tori! [sic].” Audrey commented. And fans added their own thoughts from there. As one fan asked, “@audreyroloff are we going to make this a double pregnancy again [sic].”
On Audrey’s Instagram announcement, one fan asked the same question: “Are you and Tori planning these on purpose?!” To that, Audrey actually answered. She wrote in response, “haha nope just blessed to be going through the same seasons of life together. also, anyone who’s tried to get pregnant knows it’s not that simple to plan for [sic].”
Jeremy Roloff said it’s ‘ridiculous’ that fans think their pregnancy timing was planned
While Audrey set the record straight on Instagram, she and Jeremy also took to their podcast to reiterate that the two families didn’t plan their pregnancies together. And Jeremy also had some choice words for fans who are convinced Audrey and Tori tried to conceive at the same time.
“I’m going to say that this is probably one of the most ridiculous, ignorant, rude, selfish” questions anyone could ask, Jeremy started. And he continued on by adding, “It’s coming from a complete point of ignorance. It’s really disrespectful for the difficult journey that a lot of women specifically have to go through because getting pregnant is a gift from God.” Audrey attempted to soften the blow by adding that a lot of people who thought she and Tori attempted to conceive at the same time probably had never been pregnant before. But even so, both she and Jeremy seemed to find the concept quite offensive and belittling to mothers everywhere.
Perhaps this will finally put the rumors to rest. Either way, congratulations are in order for both expecting couples, and we can’t wait to get more updates as their due dates approach.
