Amy and her ex-husband, Matt Roloff, had bought their Oregon farm together and now she's engaged and ready to move on.
The new season of TLC's Little People, Big World is offering many changes when it comes back on March 31. The unscripted show is all about the Roloff family's struggles, but the family as we knew it has changed. For starters, the Roloff matriarch Amy may not stay a Roloff for too long. The reality TV headliner got emotional recently during the teaser for season 14 of the show that will return in 2020.
Amy and Matt Roloff had been married for several decades before calling it quits. Together, they owned the Roloff farms in Oregon, where they live and last summer we saw her realizing that she can't continue living 500 feet away from her ex-husband for the rest of her life. So, she accepted a buyout from her ex. Since then, the family has gone through many milestones together, which is what the next season will be about.
“Everything has changed on the farm,” Amy said in the teaser for the show. "Family that I thought would be forever is different now. The future is unknown," she said, according to Goodhousekeeping.
Before the end of the last year, she had said that she was going to move out of the farm and move in with her fiance, Chris Marek, who will be part of the next season too. Chris, her longtime boyfriend, had proposed in September 2019, and we might be able to see the proposal in the new show. She had also gone through a tragic event when her mother passed away in October 2019.
The moving out of the farm was a milestone that was unexpected and gradual, but she eventually did it. On February 12, she shared an Instagram post talking about moving out. She said she's moving out on her own and is traveling back and forth in her car.
"I’m going through everything and oh what memories come flooding my mind of a lot of things that went on in this house raising four kids. And I’m thankful I got to do it though it’s been hard and tough purging. Oh I’m sure I’ll be doing more once I get 'stuff' to my new house thinking 'why did I pack this'," she wrote on Instagram.
She shared a photo of the back of her car and her dog, Felix, nestled comfortably between her things. "Felix doesn’t leave my side. I think he wants to make sure I don’t leave him behind. What that little guy doesn’t know - absolutely not and has been the best for me!" she added.
Amy added that Chris has been supportive and helping her through this time of change. "Sometimes I don’t know whether to jump up and yell ‘Hooray’ or cry. I do know I feel relieved. More adventures to explore, plan for all the while being grateful Chris is by my side rooting for me and helping so much. He has been tremendous. ♥️. So I see the light at the end of this tunnel and I think I’ll make my end date- end of February. Yippee!" she concluded.
She shared another photo on Valentine's Day and said that she had a quick getaway with Chris and family. "It was a nice few days break from a lot of what I’m doing, going on and needing to do," she said.
The Roloff matriarch shared another sweet image of Chris and her fourth Valentine's Day together. "He makes me laugh, my heart pitter patters when I’m with him-think of him, I’m stronger, he keeps me on my toes, he loves me, helps me be a better me, enjoy just hanging out with him and of course, there’s love. I love this man. ♥️. He loves me," said she on Instagram.
We wish Amy the best for this new season of her life!
