Matt Roloff and Caryn Chandler: Engaged?!

by at .  Updated at .

Little People, Big World is back! The show returned with its new season on Tuesday night.

Tori and Zach were just learning to be parents to their sweet newborn baby Jackson. Audrey was way big pregnant with Ember Jean. And Matt and Amy ... seemed to be on each other's last nerves.

But Matt posted a teaser on social media that has fans wondering if there's some unexpected good news on the horizon. Are he and Caryn Chandler engaged?

If you watch Little People, Big World online, you know that tensions have never been higher between Matt Roloff and his ex wife, Amy Roloff.

Their marriage ended a couple of years ago, but they both still live on Roloff Farms -- just a stone's throw from each other.

It's awkward as hell. Especially now that each of them have moved on.

Amy is with Chris Marek, despite the outrage of fans who seem convinced that the relationship is toxic ... despite all evidence to the contrary.

And Matt Roloff has moved on and is dating his former employee, Caryn Chandler.

Matt Roloff posted this goofy, up-close photo, captioning it:

"Oh my goodness... wait until you hear... better watch new episodes this Tuesday."

On the surface, that's just a super vague teaser for the return of Little People, Big World.

But a number of fans have a particular theory about which news he is teasing.

One commented: "You are getting married! Right Matt!"

Another wrote: "Married your [girlfriend] I hope."

Of course, not everyone jumping on that bandwagon was in a congratulatory mood.

"Matt is getting married," one hater wroter before throwing some shade. "He can't stand to be single."

Some of the comments were just plain weird.

"Omg! Is your girlfriend pregnant? By the look on your face, that’s my guess."

But they shouldn't overshadow the kind, celebratory comments.

"So happy for you that you are finally with a lady that treats you with kindness and respect."

The warm wishes continue:

"Wish you and Caryn much luck and love."

A lot of very kind people are jumping to conclusions, but we don't really see any indicators that he and Caryn are engaged just yet.

And even if they are engaged, we would be surprised to only just now learn of it this season on Little People, Big World.

Usually, that sort of thing leaks in a report -- if it isn't announced with glee on social media.

Still, it would be nice to see some levity 

When Matt condemned "unfair" editing of his family by new producers, it sounded like what reality stars often say.

But the season premiere did have an awful lot of tension.

Of course, considering that Matt Roloff banned Amy from a family gathering, maybe some of that negativity has less to do with editing and more to do with rising tensions between Matt and Amy.

And those tensions are likely to rise if Matt and Caryn do finally become engaged.

Amy and Caryn do not seem to get along.

But let's all hope, for the sake of the Roloff family and for the sake of viewers who love the charming atmosphere of Roloff Farms, that cooler heads prevail.
