A new photo suggests that Little People, Big World star Zach Roloff might have missed out on baby Jackson’s first Fourth of July festivities. Several photos of Zach and Tori Roloff’s first-born son, Jackson Kyle, surfaced online this week documenting the 7-week-old’s first Independence Day holiday. Only one of those photos officially remains on Tori Roloff’s Instagram account, but In Touch Weekly managed to capture a photo from an Instagram Story before it expired. The photo’s caption seems to suggest that Zach Roloff wasn’t around to watch baby Jackson enjoy any of the “day’s activities,” according to Thursday’s article.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Season 12 of Little People, Big World wrapped up on June 27 with an episode that let fans watch the birth of Zach and Tori Roloff’s baby boy. Both Zach and Tori continue to keep Little People, Big World fans updated on how baby Jackson is doing via social media. Zach Roloff, 27, stays active on his Instagram account and has shared five photographs of Jackson since his birth on May 12. Tori Roloff also stays active on social media, mainly via her own personal Instagram account, and has shared three times as many photos of baby Jackson as Zach has in the last seven weeks.
Fifteen photos of baby Jackson remain on Tori Roloff’s Instagram account, but the first-time mom and Little People, Big World star has also shared several Instagram Stories that disappear at the end of one day, “very much like Snapchat’s My Story feature,” according to an article on CNET. However, In Touch Weekly managed to capture several photos from Tori’s Instagram Stories on July 4 before they disappeared. One photo in question is reportedly from an Instagram Stories video that shows Zach Roloff with baby Jackson on Fourth of July night, just before bedtime. According to In Touch Weekly, the photo accompanies the video of Zach Roloff bonding with baby Jackson and getting “his son ready for bed,” with the caption, “We missed Daddy!!!”
“Her husband Zach Roloff seemed to have missed out on all of the day’s activities but he made it home in time to get his son ready for bed.”
Three other photos from Instagram Stories document baby Jackson’s first Fourth of July, along with one photo that remains on Tori’s Instagram account with a “Happy 4th of July!” message. Not known is where Tori Roloff and baby Jackson spent July 4 or why Zach Roloff missed out on the day’s festivities, but the first-time dad and long-time Little People, Big World star did get to spend his first Father’s Day with his first child, as shown on Zach’s Instagram account. People Magazine shared two days after Father’s Day that Zach Roloff “celebrated his first Father’s Day with his family” by posting a “sweet black-and-white picture” of his then 1-month-old son sleeping.
Zach Roloff’s Instagram photos of baby Jackson show it’s obvious that he loves his son and probably wouldn’t miss out on Jackson’s first Fourth of July without having a really good reason. A previously mentioned Inquisitr article says that Tori’s Instagram Stories video on the night of July 4 shows Zach saying that baby Jackson’s “hands have gotten so big” and that he’s “all grown up,” which makes Little People, Big World fans wonder how long Zach Roloff had been gone. Little People, Big World patriarch Matt Roloff, 55, recently shared via his personal Facebook account that he was in Arizona for his third “investigative trip,” leaving fans to wonder if Zach went along.
Now that Zach Roloff is back home, baby Jackson can watch some more “soccer with daddy,” which is apparently Jackson’s favorite way to pass time, according to mom Tori.
Fans of Little People, Big World say they are “absolutely in love” with baby Jackson and that Jackson is the “star of the show” now. One Little People, Big World fan commented on an ongoing Previously TV thread devoted to Zach and Tori Roloff that they “wouldn’t mind if the show got rid of everyone but Zach, Tori, and Jackson.”
Not yet known for sure is whether there will even be another new season of Little People, Big World, but Premiere Date shared that LPBW matriarch Amy Roloff recently hinted about a possible upcoming season to start in September, adding that “the source can’t be more reliable than this.” If so, TLC will more than likely continue with the regular Tuesday timeslot at 9 p.m. ET for Season 13 episodes of Little People, Big World.
