Being first-time parents isn’t easy, but Little People, Big World’s Jeremy and Audrey Roloff managed to squeeze in a little date last Sunday. The couple went to watch a concert of Need to Breathe, their favorite band who was in town. This was the first time for Jeremy and Audrey to go out after they welcomed baby Ember on September 10.
When they celebrated their third wedding anniversary on Sept. 20, Audrey has just given birth so they couldn’t leave home. Thankfully, LPBW matriarch Amy Roloff came to the rescue and brought over home-cooked steak so they could still have a nice dinner together.
Audrey Roloff got a bit emotional describing their first date as parents. In her latest Instagram post, the 26-year-old mom wrote that it was “bittersweet” to leave Ember behind, even for just one evening.
“I held back tears as we drove off in Jer’s orange 1971 BMW with no car seat in the back…It was a flashback to our first year of marriage because that [car] was Jer’s daily driver when we lived in Los Angeles.”
Despite her separation anxiety from baby Ember, Audrey definitely enjoyed their alone time together. She posted several videos of the concert as it happened on her Instagram Stories. For their date, Audrey kept her gorgeous red hair in loose curls. She put on some makeup and wore a cream blazer and black leggings. Jeremy was in his usual casual jacket-and-jeans attire, but he did clean up a little bit and kept his curly hair in a man-bun.
We finally went on our first date since having Ember ????To be honest it was bittersweet leaving Ember for the evening. I held back tears as we drove off in the Jer’s orange 1971 bmw with no car seat in the back. But at the same time it was refreshing to spend some much needed quality time just the two of us. It was a flash back to our first year of marriage because that orange bmw was Jer’s daily driver when we lived in Los Angeles. We had so much fun at the @needtobreathe concert (I did the math and it’s now my 9th time seeing them in concert) plus we got to reconnect with our friends @drsethbolt and @toribolt over the last couple days - life giving on so many levels. Even though we are on opposite coasts, they will always be kindered spirits and iron sharpening friends. Any other new parents out there?! When did y’all leave your baby for the first time and what did you do? #beating50percent #stayingido #journeyofjerandauj
Audrey Roloff also emphasized how important it is for new parents to go out on dates to recharge as husband-and-wife. As Little People, Big World fans know, Jeremy and Audrey run a marriage support website called Beating 50 Percent. Here, they regularly write inspirational blog posts to inspire young couples to stay married.

Jeremy and Audrey have been extra busy this past month. Aside from nursing an infant, the couple also helped out during the Roloff Farms’ pumpkin season. Jeremy, in particular, was very hands-on at the family farm, which was open to the public for five weekends.
Additionally, they have resumed filming for the new season of Little People, Big World, which is expected to air sometime in winter or spring. Audrey recently gushed about her husband and thanked him for being a great help around the house in spite of his crazy schedule.
“This month he worked every day of pumpkin season, ran Beating 50 Percent and Shop Always More so I could focus on Ember, filmed for LPBW, dealt with lots of house complications, brought me food while I spend most of my days feeding/pumping, and is always willing to help take care of Ember on top of it all,” the first-time mom wrote in an Instagram post.
