On May 13, Tori Roloff and Zach Roloff announced they were expecting their second child.
On May 14, we published an article with the headline Little People, Big News: Roloffs Congratulate Tori and Zach on Impending Baby.
This post included Tweets from family members such as Matt and Audrey, all of whom sent their very best wishes to the couple on this wildly exciting piece of news.
Why is this relevant at the moment?
Because Audrey Roloff and Jeremy Roloff announced yesterday that they are also expecting their second child.
“Baby #2 is coming in January!!! Ember is gonna be a big sister! We are so grateful and excited for this little blessing to join our family,” Audrey wrote as a caption to the photos above and below, which include both her first child and a photo of her sonogram.
Added Jeremy, echoing his wife's message and sentiment:
"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 of our family."
That was then.
Nothing. Nothing at all from any of Audrey and Jeremy's loved ones.
Just a few hours ago, Amy Roloff posted a picture of son Zach playing soccer. In this same time period, Matt Roloff posted a picture of himself in Cabo with girlfriend Caryn Chandler.
One day ago, Tori shared an adorable family photo of herself, Zach and their son in San Francisco.
Our point here is that the Roloffs have been active on social media in the 24 hours or so since Jeremy and Audrey made their huge announcement -- and yet no relatives made any mention of the pregnancy at all.
Such a (non) reaction has to make you think, doesn't it?
In the past, we've documented the alleged feud between Jacob Roloff (who has not commented on the pregnancy, either) and Audrey, as the former reality stars appeared to avoidn each other at all times and at all costs.
Insiders have claimed the two disagree strongly over their faith and religion.
Specifically, Jacob has supposedly taken issue with how outspoken Audrey can be about Christianity and God, especially when she sometimes combines talk about such topics with items she and Jeremy are trying to sell.
Might other Roloffs feel a similar way about Audrey?
Or might they be angry that Audrey and Jeremy left Little People, Big World last summer?
The couple took all viewers back about a year ago when they confirmed this decision, remarking that it was simply time to move on and focus on other projects.
(Audrey and Jeremy have since written a book and started a podcast.)
"A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last," Jeremy wrote at the time, adding:
"It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride...
"We thank you, and always enjoy when we get a chance to meet one of you. Whether it be in the airport, on the street, at pumpkin season or at one of our upcoming Beating50percent events!
"THANK YOU for all the love and support. Your messages, comments, gifts, and mail are noticed and appreciated. You guys are the best."
None of Audrey and Jeremy's loved ones seemed especially irritated by this decision when it was made, and TLC still renewed the show for another season.
But it's hard not to read into the radio silence in response to this pregnancy announcement now and not wonder... do better feelings remain?
