We sure hope Ember Roloff is ready to graduate from only child to big sister, because parents Jeremy and Audrey Roloff just announced that they’re expecting baby No. 2. On Monday, July 1, the former Little People, Big World stars took to Instagram to reveal that Auj is pregnant despite the couple’s recent rocky romance. They broke the news with their daughter’s help and a string of sonograms featuring their new bundle of joy. Both parents were beaming, but Ember looked more excited than anyone.
“Baby #2 is coming in January!!! 🎉 Ember is gonna be a big sister! 😍😭” Audrey, 27, wrote in the photo caption for the Instagram album. “We are so grateful and excited for this little blessing to join our family. 💗🙏🏻” Jeremy, 29, shared his own version of the post: “We’ve got some exciting news: Ember Jean is going to be a big sister! We’re very excited to grow our family. Thanks for following our journey and for your continual support of our family.”
The news comes on the heels of the couple opening up about how they’ve had a “rough few weeks.” On June 25, Audrey admitted that she and her husband have been “working through some things” in their marriage. “Let’s just say there has been a lot of ‘heated fellowship,’ morning hugs missed, and date nights postponed,” she wrote. Jeremy agreed, writing, “We got out of our weekly habit of communicating and expressing our thoughts.” Both members of the couple blamed their busy schedules for getting them out of whack.
Luckily, they’ve already started addressing the problem — and that includes slowing down and taking some time for themselves. On Thursday, June 27, they even headed out for a date night, just the two of them. Leaving Ember at home, they decided to go see a movie and ended up having the whole theater to themselves. That’s what we call romance! Now that they’ve got another little kiddo on the way, hopefully they’ll continue to take the time to work on their marriage, rest and relax.
