“Little People, Big World” stars Matt and Amy Roloff are getting a divorce. 

The TLC reality stars initially announced that they’d be living separately in March 2014 but are now moving to legalize their split.

“After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce,” the couple said in a statement posted on their show’s website on Friday.

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


Twins Jeremy and Zack, 25, daughter Molly, 21, and son Jacob, 18, costar with their parents on their show. They said that their children and growing family remain their priority.

“We will continue to work together side by side in the daily responsibilities for our many current ventures,” they added.

Matt and Amy filed for divorce in Oregon on Friday, according to TMZ, which obtained a copy of the filing. The couple cited irreconcilable differences in their co-petition.

The couple, diagnosed with types of dwarfism, appeared as the heads of the household in the series, which launched in 2006. The show aired its most recent season finale last September and is expected to premiere its next season this summer.


When the Roloffs first announced their separation last year, Matt, 53, said that he would be living in the family farm’s guest house. Amy, 52, said that they never quite learned how to live with one another.
