Matt Roloff Wishes Ex-Wife Happy Birthday, Stuns Critics

by at .

Matt Roloff has a message for everyone who thinks he and his ex-wife are in an ugly feud.

And he also has a message for that ex-wife herself.

In an Instagram caption that likely came as a shock to some people who believe everything they read online, the Little Poeple, Big World star wished Amy Roloff a happy birthday.

For real!

This really happened, despite critics around the Web often writing that Amy and Matt asre engaged in some kind of rivalry.

"A very Happy Birthday to both Amy and Molly who share the exact same big day. I hope you both have a wonderful amazing Day!!" Matt wrote alongside the image above, which features himself and his daughter.

The reality star included a cake emoji and a balloon emoji and some other emojis along with this caption as well.

Matt and Amy filed for divorce in the spring of 2016, many months after they separated.

They still run Roloff Farm together and they still anchor Little People, Big World together and they still get along pretty darn well, if you ask us.

However, there's understandable tension at times because Amy is dating Chris Marek and Matt is dating Caryn Chandler and the paths of these couples often cross.

But we challenge anyone reading this to find any negative remarks out there from either Matt in Amy's direction or vice versa.

Just because Matt didn't actually celebrate Amy's birthday this past weekend certainly doesn't mean anything.

She was taken out to dinner by Marek and it would have been fairly awkward if her ex-husband had tagged along.

For whatever reason, though, many social media users leave critical comments on Matt's page any time he references Caryn; or on Amy's page any time she references Chris.

We asked a few weeks ago why fans are so obsessed with stirring up controversy when there is none, considering how smoothly Amy and Matt have continued to run their business in the wake of their divorce.

Moreover, all four of the Roloff children seem totally accepting of these new romantic entanglements.

So why can't fans of their TLC show also go along for the ride?

For the record, this is what Amy and Matt said in their statement at the time of their official split:

After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce.

We are proud of what we have accomplished together, including raising our four wonderful children, who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful businesses.

Our kids and our ever-growing family, and the love and support we have for them, will be our priority. We will continue to work together side-by-side in the daily responsibilities for our many current ventures.

We would like to thank our family, friends, and all our fans for their continued support and understanding during this difficult time.

Unlike many other celebrities who break up, they've actually managed to stand by these words and keep their family nice and close.

Well done, you two.

And happy birthday, Amy and Molly!
