The gang’s all together! Well, except for one. The stars of Little People, Big World got together to celebrate Jacob Roloff‘s birthday over the weekend. The only problem? His father, Matt Roloff, was nowhere to be found. “This gathering happened the other day, all of my kids were at the Farmhouse to celebrate Jacobs 21st birthday early. What a fun and blessed time being all together!” mama Amy wrote on Instagram. Watch the video below for more details!
In May 2016, Matt and Amy finalized their divorce. The two — who share four kids together, twins Jeremy and Zach, 27, Molly, 23, and Jacob, 20 — announced their divorce with a statement promising to remain cordial and make it work, for not only their children but also their business (a promise they’ve made good on, considering they still run their family’s pumpkin farm together)!
“After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce. We are proud of what we have accomplished together, including raising our four wonderful children, who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful businesses,” the statement said at the time. “Our kids and our ever-growing family, and the love and support we have for them will be our priority. We will continue to work together side-by-side in the daily responsibilities for our many current ventures. We would like to thank our family, friends, and all our fans for their continued support and understanding during this difficult time.”

Earlier this week, the Roloff matriarch received online backlash for using her youngest son to sell bread. Amy shared a snap with Jacob and wrote in the caption, “I just love when I get to hang out w/ my youngest son Jacob. Even more so when having some of Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen Snickerdoodle Bread, Coffee and hearing all about his Iceland trip w/ Isabel. What a blast! Check out my January bread and other offerings at www.amyjroloff.com and Order some today! Enjoy!”
Almost immediately, fans slammed the star for trying to sell her products while spending quality time together. “Really? You use him to sell your bread?” one person wrote. Another chimed in, “Sorry… can’t u just enjoy your son… without the pitch!” Sigh, she just can’t catch a break!
