By now, if you're at all a fan of Little People, Big World, you must be aware of the good news:
Amy Roloff is engaged!!!!
The beloved reality star confirmed this amazing development just a few days ago, sitting with brand new fiance Chris Marek and saying the following to People Magazine...
“I’m excited, I’m so surprised, I’m thrilled!
"I never in a million years thought I’d be getting married again, but I also hoped for it! Now that it’s happening, I couldn’t be happier or more excited.”
We couldn't help but snicker a little over this claim of surprise, considering ALL the rumors of an engagement that had been floating around Amy and Chris for months.
And also considering how often the topic was broached with Roloff herself.
Amy, meanwhile, has since posted a photo of her gorgeous ring -- and has now updated her Instagram page with a few more details from the big night itself.
"A lot has happened to me this past week and a half (more later)but I wanted to share again A beautiful event that happened in my life," wrote Amy as a caption to the photos above and below, adding:
"I never had a clue or expected it.
"Chris and I celebrated our 3rd year anniversary of dating last Wednesday. And to my wonderful happy surprise he proposed and asked me to marry him!"
Oh wow. We knew the proposal took place right after Amy's birthday.
But not that it also coincided with the couple's anniversary. How special and perfect!
Roloff went on to include quite a few heart and ring emjois in her caption, concluding as follows:
I couldn’t believe it it! I cried, he had tears and of course I said YES!. I’m engaged and couldn’t be happier. I love this man so much. Of course, A day later i had to celebrate the news w/ two of my closest friends - Lisa and Debi.
I’m blessed. I’m happy. I’m so looking forward to continuing our life journey together.
The TLC personality also hinted that the wedding would take place next year sometime, using the hashtag #2021 toward the end of her message.
This does make a lot of sense: Amy and her family will have plenty to deal with over the next several months:
Zach and Tori Roloff are expecting a baby around Thanksgiving, while Audrey and Jeremy are then expecting one just over a month later. How exciting for everyone involved!
We haven't yet seen any of Amy's children comment publicly on her engagement, but ex-husband Matt actually sent along his congratulations, which was awfully nice of him.
We, of course, would like to do the same now:
Congrats to Amy and Chris! We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
