One of the a questions in our marriage journal every week is: “What’s a dream, craving, or desire that’s been on the forefront of your mind this week?” For the past 6 months the most frequent answer from both of us has been “going camping.” 🔥So this weekend we are finally carving out some time to say yes. To disconnect in order to reconnect. To explore and delight. To sleep under the stars and and wake to the sunrise🏕What’s something you’ve been dreaming about, craving, or a desire of you’re heart you’ve been putting off and need to carve out time for?
The series of photos posted featured the family of three holding up the ultrasound of Audrey, who held her baby bump. Jeremy also shared the news in his own words, saying:
“Ember Jean is going to be a big sister! We’re very excited to grow our family. Thanks for following our journey and for your continual support for our family.”
Fans of the reality stars quickly commented their congratulations and excitement for the second baby, including the Roloff matriarch, Amy, who said:
“Woohoo! I’m so thrilled to be a grandma again.”
GETTING CANDID ON SOCIAL MEDIA
A few days before they made the big announcement, Audrey shared the struggles the couple faced in the last couple of weeks, emphasizing that what is seen on social media doesn’t necessarily reflect what is happening behind the camera.
“We fight, struggle, cry, and face challenges just like anyone. I’m saying this here because if you look at my Instagram feed from the past 3 weeks you don’t see the long tearful conversations, the hurtful remarks, the compiling complaints,” she wrote. “You don’t see the full picture.”

WARNING‼️vulnerable post: To be honest, the last few weeks have been hard on our marriage. We have been working through some things and let’s just say there has been a lot of “heated fellowship,” morning hugs missed, and date nights postponed. We are overworked and exhausted from the pace we’ve been running for too long. We know we need to slow down, but as Dallas Willard puts it, “we intend what is right, but we avoid the life that would make it a reality.” Instead, we keep running, keep pushing, keep producing and keep squeezing all the margin out of our lives. It’s robbing our joy, stealing our peace, and hindering our ability to love. If you’ve ever looked at or read a post from us and thought “They must just have it all together.” Volume up for this one....WE DON’T🙅🏼♀️ We fight, struggle, cry, and face challenges just like anyone. I’m saying this here because if you look at my Instagram feed from the past 3 weeks you don’t see the long tearful conversations, the hurtful remarks, the compiling complaints, the critical spirits, the prideful inner dialogue, or our unloving and disrespectful attitudes. You don’t see the full picture. A few nights ago we went for an evening drive to talk through some struggles and we stumbled upon a trestle....😆 It was like God knew we needed something that would force us both to smile😅 Although you can’t tell by the photo, this wasn’t a happy night. I cried shortly after we snapped this photo. I’m saying this because I don’t want you to be deceived by the highlight reel that is “the gram.” We all have a messy behind the scenes reality. ALL OF US. Even the people you follow on social media who seem to be the most “real.” Even they have struggles they don’t share, and hurts the don’t publicize. We all do. And that’s ok! But that also means we need to remind ourselves when we’re scrolling this space that it’s not real life. So friend, if you’re comparing your life, marriage, kids, house, job, body, etc. to what you see on Instagram, remember it’s NOT the full picture. And I just want to remind ya, you are enough. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. And you are loved.
Jeremy penned a heartfelt announcement explaining his decision to depart from the show, including a thanksgiving to those who supported their family along the way.
Audrey constantly updates her Instagram account with photos of her family, sharing beautiful words which often makes fans think they live in a perfect world, but the former reality star cleared the air and made known that they too are people who struggle with challenges.
EXITING THE SHOW
The couple left their family’s reality show, “Little People, Big World” in the second half of 2018 after Jeremy headed the decision to exit the show, without the intention of “disappearing” completely.
