New Grandpa Matt Roloff Announces He’s Fulfilling His “Life Dream” of Writing a Children’s Book!

The good news just keeps on coming for the Roloffs! The Little People, Big World stars have experienced an engagement, two pregnancy announcements, and now, a book deal — all in one year! In December, Matt and Amy‘s only daughter Molly revealed she was getting married, Zach and Jeremy announced their wives were both expecting, and now new grandpa, Matt, has some exciting news of his own.

In a Facebook post, the 55-year-old said he’s “super duper excited” to reveal that he’s fulfilled his “life dream” of writing a children’s book. Over a year ago, the father-of-four underwent neck surgery, and the long road to recovery inspired him “to write a fun, uplifting children’s book based on having faith, hope and perseverance for life after surgery and/or adversity.”

In May, the reality star welcomed his first grandchild, Jackson Roloff, and just earlier this week, revealed that he’s talking! Well, almost. In a separate Facebook post, the proud grandpa of Zach and Tori’s little boy said, “Jackson just starting to talk to grandpa already… almost.” In a few more weeks, his second grandchild — a girl — will be arriving.

Despite splitting from wife Amy after nearly 30 years of marriage, things seem to be going well for the TV star. To top it all off, Matt has found love again with Caryn Chandler, who was once the family’s farm manager. In March, when a fan asked if the two were dating, he confirmed the news. “Yes. Caryn and I are now dating,” he wrote. “It’s very exciting [for] such a wonderful person [to] be a positive companion in my life.” We’re so happy all the exciting things going on in his life!
