Audrey Roloff from LPBW Shares Family Pictures with Baby Son Bode James from Easter Celebration
"Little People, Big World" alum Audrey Roloff took to social media recently to share family photos from the Easter celebration. Of course, that includes the new addition of their family, baby Bode James.
"We loved celebrating resurrection Sunday yesterday," Audrey captioned the Instagram post. "He lives! All honor and power are His all glory forever amen, JESUS LIVES! He is our living hope."
In one photograph, Audrey is seen carrying her eldest child, daughter Ember Jean. His husband, Jeremy, on the other hand, is carrying their newborn son Bode.
Last December, Audrey shared pictures from a maternity photo shoot to Instagram, as reported by PEOPLE. She is seen sitting on her bed in a black bralette and shorts, holding her growing baby bump in two of the images.
"Finally snapped a few pics of the bump while baby boy is still cozy inside??" she captioned the series of photos. "Pregnancy is really just a remarkable experience."
In her post, Audrey said that "to carry our baby on the inside" is such a blessing. She also shared how excited she was to carry her baby boy "on the outside soon."
THE BIRTH OF BABY BODE
On January 8, baby Bode was born weighing nine lbs., two oz., and measured 21 inches long, PEOPLE reported. Audrey announced his birth on Instagram.
In July 2018, the family said goodbye to the Roloffs' reality show, "Little People, Big World."

Bode joins big sister Ember, whom Jeremy and Audrey welcomed in September 2017. As reported by PEOPLE, Audrey got candid about the struggles in her marriage with Jeremy in June 2019.

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.
The couple tied the knot in September 2014. In an Instagram post, Audrey revealed that they "fight, struggle, cry, and face challenges just like anyone."
She concluded her post with "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."
