The lives of Matt and Amy Roloff and their children Jeremy and Zach, 27, Molly, 23, and Jacob, 20, are chronicled on Little People, Big World, and although we know pretty much all there is to know about the family, we don’t know much about Amy’s parents. Earlier this year, the Roloff matriarch took to Instagram to post a sweet (but rare) snap with her mother and father, which got fans wondering, “Who are they?!” Get to know more about them below!
They live in Michigan
Although Amy and Matt recently divorced, their farm is located about 30 miles West of Portland in the community of Helvetia, Oregon — which is about 2,000 miles from her parent’s house in Michigan. No wonder we haven’t seen much of them!
They have a super cute cabin
In July, the 52-year-old visited her mom and dad, Gordon and Patricia Knight, at their cabin on the lake. She captioned the photo, “My parents’ cabin up in the U.P. (Michigan upper peninsula ) on Lake Michigan. Love up north and road tripping around my ‘home’ state!” She also used the hashtags, “#secondact #puremichigan #michiganmyhomestate #myfamily #lakemichiganlove #yooper #michigangirl.” It’s unclear, however, if this is a vacation home or possibly Amy’s childhood home.
They’re great grandparents!
Recently Tori Roloff, Zach’s wife, took their son, Jackson, to meet his great grandmother! However, it was her grandma she was referring to, so there’s no word yet on whether or not Zach’s grandparents have met their four-month-old. Late last month, the 26-year-old shared a photo of a calligraphy sign she made that read, “Only the best grandmas get promoted to great grandmas.” She added, “J gets to meet his great grandma tomorrow!!!” So sweet! Their second great grandchild — which was due Sept. 1 — may have already made her appearance. Fans speculated that Audrey Roloff, Jeremy’s wife, gave birth to her first child on Labor Day, however, there’s no word yet from the family.

Baby J got to meet his great grandmother. He has no idea how special this woman is. Marmee- as we call her- is truly the kindest woman I have ever met. She is the best grandma I could ever ask for and Jackson is so blessed that he gets to share her too! Baby J is so loved and I am so thankful for that! ❤️ #babyjroloff
