‘LPBW’: Matt Roloff Just Said He’s ‘So Proud’ of Jacob Roloff
Little People, Big World is currently filming the 15th season of the show, and fans can’t wait to see what the Roloffs are up to next. As viewers know, a lot has changed since Matt and Amy Roloff first began their show. While they were once a happy couple taking care of their four kids and the Roloff Farms family business together, they’re now divorced — and Amy is working quickly to move off of the farm property now that she sold her half to Matt.
It’s not just Matt and Amy who fans are interested in, either. Jacob Roloff, the youngest of the family, made a huge splash when he decided to leave the show behind. And while many assumed he and his father, Matt, were at odds, Matt just posted about how he’s “so proud” of his son. Here’s what happened.
Matt and Jacob Roloff reportedly had a strained relationship
The only child of Matt and Amy’s who’s still regularly featured on the show is Zach Roloff. And while Molly and Jeremy occasionally make appearances here and there, Jacob has made it known he’s never returning to LPBW. As he announced on Instagram years back, “I get comments on here all the time about how people ‘miss me on the show’ or telling me I should ‘do a few more episodes’ with the family; I’m posting this to say that that will never happen.”
Not only did Jacob sour his relationship with the show, but Radar Online also reported that his relationship with Matt also went downhill. An insider allegedly told the publication that Jacob blamed Matt for his parents’ divorce. As the insider said, “I think when his parents divorced he put a lot of the blame on his dad. 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.”
Matt just helped Jacob with his wedding reception on Roloff Farms
We often see Matt and Amy’s kids featured on their Instagrams. And recently, fans have noticed Jacob has been making more appearances than ever on Matt’s social media. While the father-son duo may have their differences, it appears Jacob’s wedding really brought them closer. Matt posted this photo of Jacob trying on suits prior to his big day. And when it came time to get ready for the nuptials, Matt also posted all about how he was preparing Roloff Farms for the big celebration.
“We are certainly working and laboring away here getting ready for Jacob and Izzy’s big day,” Matt said in this Instagram video. “We’re all excited about that — getting ready for a big event.” And after the wedding, Matt posted a number of photos from the day showing off the joyful bride and groom and all of the happy family members who attended the farm reception.
Matt posted about how he’s ‘so proud’ of his youngest son
Despite whatever troubles Matt and Jacob may have had in the past, it’s clear the two have moved forward and now maintain an amicable relationship. “So proud of the man my baby boy has become!” Matt captioned this sweet photo of him and his youngest son from the wedding. And while Jacob didn’t comment on the photo, his now-wife, Isabel Rock, did. “Thanks to you he looks dapper in his suit,” she commented.
Fans adore seeing the father and son get along so well, too. As one follower commented, “He is a cool kid. You and Amy did a very good job raising those kids.” Yet another wrote, “Like father, like son, both beautiful, kind, smart people.” And another added, “All your kids are good looking. And great people to boot. You and Amy did good.”
We’re excited to see Matt and Jacob getting along so well. And while Jacob most likely won’t be making any appearances on the show, we’re hoping to see more of him on Matt and Amy’s social media in the future!
