The Roloff family is officially in the Guiness World Record books. The Little People, Big World stars broke the record for "Most Episodes of a Family-Focused Reality Television Show" last month — and they are pretty proud of their achievement.
"Little could we have imagined… 13 long years ago that we 'The Roloff family' could break a World Record! But we did just that and we are proud of it," patriarch Matt Roloff said. "This journey has been filled to the brim with the most amazing triumphs and some of the biggest trials, but through it all we learned, we grew and we conquered." Amy Roloff was also shocked by the world record.
"This is huge being in the Guinness World Record Book because of our show," she added. "I could not have imagined 15 years 13 seasons later that we filmed Little People, Big World. Not only has it impacted my life and my family but so many others as well. I've been inspired by all of the wonderful people I've met along the way around the country and the opportunities I've had. A big heart felt thank you to all of you that have watched, supported and encouraged us along the way!"
At the time of the win, LPBW had 298 episodes under it's belt. Since the March premiere, that number has grown to 307. This means, the family has beat out other famous reality TV families, including Keeping Up With the Kardashians (212 episodes) and the Duggars — 19 Kids and Counting only got to 227 episodes before it was canceled in 2015.
LPBW premiered in 2006, and since then has taken fans along as they dealt with everything from dwarfism-related struggles to divorce. However, the good times have outweighed the bad — with cameras catching the family growing with the births of Jeremy and Audrey Roloff's daughter Ember and Zach and Tori Roloff's son Jackson. The TLC series also recently aired the wedding of daughter Molly Roloff to longtime boyfriend Joel Silvius, and youngest brother Jacob Roloff announced his engagement to girlfriend Isabel Rock this past January.
Congrats to the family!
