One Year After Divorce, Amy Roloff Let Slip Confession About Relationship With New Man
HeartEternal Staff 6/27/2017
In May 2016, Amy and Matt Roloff finalized their divorce. The stars of Little People, Big World had drawn a legion of fans following their family, eager to watch their kids grow up.
Amy and Matt both have dwarfism, although different types. One of their twin sons, Zach, has dwarfism like his mom. Their spirit and tenacity in the face of adversity has always been admirable. That's why, after her 27-year marriage has come to an end, Amy seems to be surprising herself.
She never anticipated it, but Amy has a second shot at love, but with someone she never expected. It's a man of average height, but most importantly to Amy, he has a huge heart.
"I just never thought someone who is average size would be interested in me. I just really want him to never question or doubt the relationship because I'm a little person."
Amy's boyfriend Chris confessed to the reality show star that he has overheard people making comments about their relationship, but none of it bothered him. They both enjoy spending time with each other and for Valentine's Day, treated themselves to a night at the Portland Art Museum and dinner at Higgins downtown Portland.
"I just have a good time. I have fun with him."
After almost three decades of marriage, romance the second time around has been fun and different for Amy. She and Chris' first adventure together was a wild and windy one.
"I had a couple of pool parties. I had, like, 40 people here. No, I probably had, like, 50 people here. Then this guy Chris that I met, he came to the party, too. We got to talking and he invited me to go on a motorcycle ride."
As if the motorcycle excursion wasn't thrilling enough, Amy is looking forward to experiencing being a grandma with her new beau. Zach and his wife have a baby boy, while his twin brother Jeremy and his wife are expecting.
"I never thought I'd be dating as a grandma. It's nice to experience that and be with someone."
Here's a sneak peek at Amy's latest dinner conversation with her gal pals.
Amy is so excited about being a grandmother, that her friends are throwing her a grandma shower to help ensure she has all of the supplies she'll need for when the babies visit her. She hopes that Chris will enjoy those visits with her and the babies, too.
While it's sad when a marriage comes to an end, Amy is very lucky to have found love a second time around. We wish Amy and Chris much bliss!
