Matt Roloff from LPBW Shares Photo with His Handsome Family Ahead of Son Jacob's 23rd Birthday
Matthew Roloff is warming up for his son Jacob’s 23rd birthday with a touching family photo that melts hearts.
A member of the Roloff family is becoming a year older, and no one is as excited as doting father, Matthew Roloff. The loving dad celebrated the milestone of his son Jacob turning 23 with a lovely family photo.
In the celebratory image shared, Matt and his girlfriend Caryn Chandler, who was carrying Jackson, joined Jacob and his wife Isabel to pose for the camera.
The father-son duo looked adorable as they rocked matching red tops while they smiled. In the caption, Matt explained that the clan was celebrating Jacob’s upcoming 23rd birthday a few days earlier.

Colorado 3 ———— As I sort of mentioned in the first photo, one of my favorite things about film photography is how it limits to a degree what you choose to take photos of. I don’t know the figures, but digital storage uses an incredible amount of energy in our society, measured likely in many many petabyes (1PB = 1,000,000GB). Although I do have my negatives digitalized, the photos measure only sometimes in the hundreds, and usually a lot less, as compared to our smartphones’ thousands and tens of thousands. Film photography is a savoring. And I love it. #35mmfilmphotography #portra400 #canonAE1 [obviously my wife @isabelsofiarock took this one]
In no time, fans took to the comments section to wish Jacob a happy birthday. Others were, however, too mesmerized with how lovely the family looked.
A fan wrote:
“Jackson is just so darn cute!!❤️❤️”
Another user gushed:
“Great picture of all of you. Jackson loves his ChaCha. ❤️”
It is no surprise that Jackson was having his best time in the photo, even though his parents, Zach and Tori Roloff weren’t noticeably present.
Jacob has been known for his great “uncle skills” as PopCulture reports that Audrey Roloff once referred to him as the “most tolerant and patient uncle ever.”
In a series of videos that were shared on Audrey’s Instagram story, Jacob was seen playing with his niece Ember as she tried to dress him up like a princess.
It is, no doubt, lovely that Jacob still manages to bond with members of the family despite leaving “Little People, Big World” in 2016.

I get comments on here all the time about how people 'miss me on the show' or telling me I should 'do a few more episodes' with the family; I'm posting this to say that that will never happen. For the sake of 'the episode' and ratings I've seen a lot of STORYLINES drawn up (loosely) about our lives, and when I was standing here, behind the scenes and watching it from an outside perspective I just couldn't stop laughing. Laughing at how hard the producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points, and at how ridiculous the talking points are. . To misquote Chomsky, "the primary objective of any system is to preserve the integrity of that system", meaning, the primary objective I have felt and observed over the years of the 'crew' is to preserve their job and preserve the ratings, which is up to you to be right or wrong. That's not to say they are all soulless corporate shills or something, there are and have been good people involved but that doesn't negate the fact that they do have their own personal agenda. For me, noticing how the agenda of the crew doesn't work well with the health & happiness of our family is what made me decide quite a while ago that I would not be a part of it as soon as I was able. . All in all I appreciate people wanting me to 'be with the family' for a few more episodes, but the family that is filmed is not my family. They are the Roloff Characters and I have scarcely anything in common with them, nor do I want to be a character myself. As soon as the cameras drop however, its almost like they never played the part. 20 minutes after this picture was taken we all, plus friends, had a campfire late into the night. So, I am with my family and I love them I'm just here to say you'll never see that from me on TV again. (This picture is from a few months ago)
He explained that his family was nothing like what was shown on television and that the agenda of the crew didn’t align with the health and happiness of his family.
Even though Jacob declares that he was at peace with saying goodbye to the reality show, he hinted in a tweet that he was missing the money he made from the show as a minor.
Despite the rift Jacob’s exit caused in the family, his father remains proud of him.
As noted by CheatSheet, Matt took to his Instagram to post a photo of them on Jacob’s wedding day and gushed about how his boy had become a man.
