Feeling the love! Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff took to Instagram to send her father-in-law, Matt Roloff’s girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, a happy birthday message. The 28-year-old gushed over the maternal figure on Sunday, March 15.

“Happy birthday @carynchandler1!!!” the mom of two began. “We seriously and honestly could not do life without you.” Tori shared her kind words alongside two precious photos of Caryn and her children, Jackson, 2, and Lilah, 3 months.

Caryn clearly shares a special bond with her boyfriend’s daughter-in-law and his grandchildren, but she admitted she is mindful of his ex-wife, Amy Roloff’s feelings. “I am careful not to call myself their actual ‘grandma,’ but I love them just the same,” she told a fan via Instagram in December 2019.

Despite not being a Roloff by name, Caryn does what she can to bring the family together and Matt often praises her for her efforts. “@carynchandler1 is amazing!” he said of his lady during the holiday season. “She figured out how to hold two back-to-back early Christmas events with the grandkids so everyone got their own individual attention while still celebrating and sharing as a united family.”

The proud grandfather went on to thank his children for welcoming Caryn with open arms. “Thanks for sharing your precious [families] with Grandpa and ChaCha a little early this season so we can break away from the incoming cold weather and get to [Arizona] where the temps are a bit warmer.” He added, “We had the two best family Christmas parties ever. #thekidslovewhatgrandpagot4them #grandpagettingbetteratpickinggifts #chachaIsteachinggrandpaeverythingheneedstoknow #morephotoslater.”

Before Caryn and Matt took things to the next level, Caryn worked as the farm manager at Roloff Farms. Although the two are very in love, they have told fans on Instagram they are taking their time before tying the knot. “We r [sic] just enjoying life with no rush — I promise to let ya know if that changes, tho [sic].”
