We are working together feverishly to prepare to celebrate Zach and Tori’s wedding this July.”
The couple and their four children, twins Jeremy and Zach, 25, Molly, 21, and Jacob, 18, all starred in the hit TLC reality series Little People, Big World. The show followed the Roloffs as they worked on their farm in Portland, Oregon, and how the couple and their son, Zach, who were all three diagnosed with dwarfism, live in a world much larger than them.
The couple said they tried to work out their issues, but they ultimately came to the decision to live apart.
“It’s not my choice for him to leave,” Amy said, according to Fox News. “I am saddened by it… We don’t have a plan for how we’re going to work this out, so it’s not going to be easy.”
“I never quite felt at home in my own home, so something needed to change,” Matt added.
