It can't be easy growing up on TV! The Roloff family — which stars on TLC's reality TV series Little People, Big World — is no exception. While Zach Roloff, Jeremy Roloff, and their wives still have main storylines on the show with their now-divorced parents Amy and Matt Roloff, their sister Molly Roloff and brother Jacob Roloff have shied away from the spotlight. However, Matt and Amy's youngest son hasn't been very vocal about not wanting anything to do with reality television in recent years.
Jacob is now 20 years old, and he has lived a rather estranged life from his family and their farm in Hillsboro, OR. Though his relationship with his family hasn't always been peachy, it seems that Jacob and his girlfriend Isabella Rock have been getting closer and spending more time with the Roloffs. In fact, they both attended his sister Molly's wedding last weekend. Molly, 23, tied the knot with Joel Silvius in an intimate ceremony on Roloff Farms.

Jacob Roloff everybody. We've been in separate states for a good long while so it's been very nice to get some quality time with him again as he's been helping me a lot on our house renovations. I'm a DIY kinda guy so with a little brother and some YouTube, anything is possible. He's a smart dude with a good heart. My mom calls us the bookends, spend 10 minutes with us and you'll know why.
Jeremy captured a sweet moment with his youngest brother during the reception. He captioned the photo, "Jacob Roloff everybody.

Previously, Jacob — clearly the black sheep of the Roloffs — has used his blog Rock & Roloff as a platform for sharing his distaste with Little People, Big World. He accused the show of portraying his family members as "characters," an act that he proclaimed was "not only incomplete or untruthful" but also "harmful."

Oh my. Can it be that long ago these four awesome terrific kids were this young? And now they're married, my babies are having babies, getting married, and a wonderful girlfriend. They have grown up to be good solid young adults. Yep I Love Being A Mom! I am blessed. Love them forever and always❤ My #secondact is wonderful so far. #earlymothersdaymemory #lovebeingamom #imblessed #secondbeginning #grandmaamy #mil❤ #godisgoodalways
Jacob has also called out the show as "fake." He wrote on his blog, "I remember once seeing my parents go into a room in a restaurant to do a scene, and in the show's storyline it was about the beginning of my parents' separation… In the scene they were supposed to be discussing some serious matter… I remember though that the scene they were doing was inherently staged and fake. Whatever discussion they were acting out had already happened in real life, so this was at best a rehashing. When they came out though, I saw tears in my mom's eyes and I suddenly realized that this staged 'joke', 'fake' thing was affecting real life in a profound way."
"I’ve come to let go of all bitterness in recent years towards both my parents and the production company," he wrote. Regardless of the tension production of Little People, Big World has caused, it's nice to see Jacob back with his family again, getting closer to each member, and spending time on the family farm.
