He's got the best of both worlds! Matt Roloff has been spending a lot of time in Arizona with his girlfriend Caryn Chandler for the past couple of months, but rest assured: he's not ditching the family farm! The Little People, Big World star broke his silence about the rumors on July 10, by giving an update via Facebook Live.
"No, I'm not giving up on the farm. There's no way I could be away from my grandbabies for more than a couple weeks at a time, but I am coming down here more often," Matt explained. "I do enjoy the heat and the low humidity, so I bought a house down here. It's kind of an investment property and something to play around with. Instead of going to hotels and staying at different places, I can have one location very conducive to my short stature."
It looks like Matt found the perfect place, and it's got sentimental value as well, since it was formerly owned by Caryn's parents! "I feel really physically good down here. And then also there's the fact of just breaking away from the farm for a week here, a week there," the reality star added. "Typically, I won't probably be down here in the summer time. I'm down here now just kind of dialing down the house and getting it fixed up the way I like it, meeting lots of people in the community, but it's also good really good quiet time."

Hi all my Arizona friends… anyone that missed my last book signing at the Barnes and Nobel in Surprise AZ … or if we ran out of books before you got yours. I’ll be there again tomorrow (sat 6/30) from 11am – 1:30) This time there should be plenty of books (hopefully). And I’ll sign your copy and do a meet n greet. Hope to see you there! also we are in the planning stages of a multi city book reading tour in August. Stay tuned we may be in Your city soon!
Fans first became suspicious of a move in May, when Matt shared a photo taken poolside while he was enjoying the warm weather in Arizona. At first fans just thought that he was on vacation, but it seemed odd that he would schedule a reading of his new children's book while relaxing. He appeared at the Barnes and Noble in Surprise, AZ to promote Little Lucy Big Race. In a video message promoting his appearance, Matt said he was looking forward to meeting his "new neighbors."
After the event, Matt took to Instagram to thank his fans and his team. "After a couple of wonderful weeks in Arizona… It’s that time to get back to the farm, hug those grand babies and catch up on many chores… like planting those pumpkin seeds," the 56-year-old wrote. "Thank you again to the great, friendly people of Arizona for such a warm welcome at my book signing." Fans have been worried about Matt selling the farm after he got rid of his house, but it looks like he's enjoying his home town and investment property!
