The star of Little People, Big World, Zach Roloff, discusses his connection with his father and acknowledges in a preview that he and Matt do not communicate frequently.
The Little People, Big World actor Zach Roloff discussed his connection with his father in a sneak peek for the upcoming episode and admitted that they don’t talk often. Together with his wife Tori Roloff, Zach is the father of three small children. He is regarded as a very involved father by both family and viewers. Although Zach is deeply committed to the family’s future, he said that he finds it challenging to reconcile the differences between his own upbringing and that of his children.
Since the show’s debut on TLC in 2006, Zach has been a part of it along with his siblings, who are no longer present. On the family’s Oregon property, which has a sizable pumpkin patch, the Roloffs have frequently been spotted. During season 23 of Little People, Big World, the subject of the property grew more divisive. After spending almost 30 years together, Zach’s mother, Amy, and father, Matt, were divorced, which caused a significant change in the Roloff family. Zach and his twin brother Jeremy frequently expressed interest in the property, and Matt bought Amy’s share of the property. When Matt put the family home up for sale online for $4 million, tensions grew. The two frequently butted heads, but Zach subsequently said he was amenable to reconciliation.
After the Roloff family property turmoil, Zach has said he’s willing to put aside problems with his father, although there might still be residual resentment. Zach admits that he and Matt haven’t been conversing much in a preview clip that ET published. While he and his father haven’t spoken in a while, “my mom, Chris, my dad and Caryn are all about to go to Arizona,” the man reveals. Zach admits that he finds the whole arrangement a little unusual even if his parents and their spouses appear to get along well, adding, “[It is] a little strange for me, them all hanging out in Arizona together, but I’m staying out of it.”
In addition, Zach expresses his excitement for Tori and the children’s next step while expressing reluctance about the circumstances surrounding their recent move. He says he is “excited for our kids to grow up here,” but that “the way we got here was not good and actions from other people, I think, were not right.” Although Zach is looking forward to moving into his new house, he also exhibits some conflicting emotions about his future there, lamenting the fact that his children won’t be able to share the same experiences he experienced on the Roloff farm. It won’t be the same upbringing I had, but even if it was on a farm, Zach adds, “They weren’t going to have the exact same childhood.”
Zach still appears to be angry over the circumstances surrounding the farmhouse. Season 23 of Little People, Big World had numerous arguments between Zach and Matt about the issue, thus it seems improbable that they have reconciled that swiftly. Zach’s loss of the land and his parents’ apparent ability to move on after their contentious divorce seem like logical reasons for Zach to feel strange about the entire situation. Zach might be the next in line, though, if Amy and Matt are able to move on.
