Over more than a decade later! The cast of Little People, Big World has changed a lot since the Roloff family first appeared on TLC in 2006. Matt and Amy’s children are grown — and have their own babies — but that’s not the only major change the family has seen over the years.
The popular reality TV series started documenting the daily lives of the Roloff family on their 34-acre farm in Portland, Oregon. Parents Matt and Amy share four kids — fraternal twins Zach and Jeremy, Molly and Jacob. The parents and Zach have dwarfism, while Jeremy, Molly and Jacob are of average height. However, since the inception of the show, some cast members have left, including Jeremy, his wife, Audrey Roloff, and Jacob. Although Molly has never made an official statement of her leaving the show, she has rarely appeared on it since she left for college in 2012.
“TLC came to us about five or six years ago, and so we suddenly realized we were given a great opportunity to educate people about dwarfism,” Amy said in 2010 about the birth of their show. “When it was offered that we do a show about our lives, my husband and I were like, ‘Wow, nothing like this has even been on the air.’ Nothing had depicted dwarfism in an everyday way. Lo and behold, a few episodes turned into six seasons. And here we are.”
She added, “Exposing your life to millions of people, especially as a parent, is a daunting thing to begin with. But I think this very public experience has helped each member of my family grow. I think it’s strengthened us so that we recognize our flaws and the best parts about ourselves.”
The Roloff family has gotten a whole lot bigger since the show first aired. Zach married Tori Roloff (née Patton) in July 2015. They welcomed their son, Jackson, in 2017 and daughter Lilah two years later in 2019. As for Jeremy, he and wife Audrey Roloff (née Botti) wed in 2014 and share three children Ember, who was born in 2017, followed by Bode, born in 2020 and their second son, Radley, born in 2021. Molly married Joel Silvius in August 2017, and the pair live in Spokane, Washington. Jacob dropped out of high school and moved out of the family home. He married Isabel Rock in November 2019, and the pair announced their first pregnancy in July 2021.
Amy and Matt announced their separation in 2014 and divorced the following year after nearly three decades of marriage. Amy sold the majority of her stake in Roloff Farms to ex-husband Matt in 2019, and according to The Sun, Matt purchased the remaining acres from his ex in 2020.
The former couple and their significant others still star on the show, along with Zach and Tori and their two children.
It’s been quite a ride for the Roloff family. Keep scrolling to see how they have transformed from 2006 to now!
