Little People, Big World has been one of TLC’s most popular shows since the series’ 2006 premiere. Not all of its stars have been keen to stay in the spotlight, though, with Molly Roloff in particular seemingly eager to live a quieter life. However, the 24-year-old recently found herself in the headlines – but, thankfully, it was for a very happy reason indeed.
Way before Little People, Big World first hit screens, however, Molly’s parents, Matt and Amy Roloff, met and married. The pair first encountered each other in 1987 at the Little People of America convention; Matt has diastrophic dysplasia, which affects an individual’s bones and cartilage, while Amy was born with achondroplasia.
And just a matter of months after that fateful meeting, Matt and Amy tied the knot. In 1990, meanwhile, they purchased a farmhouse that they renovated to create the now famous Roloff Farm. In that same year, moreover, the couple welcomed twins Zachary and Jeremy into the world, with sister Molly subsequently arriving in 1993 and brother Jacob following in 1997. Only Zachary was born with dwarfism, though; his siblings are all around average size.
