How are Elizabeth Potthast and Andrei Castravet doing today? Pregnant with Second Baby



Elizabeth “Libby” Potthast and Andrei Castravet are undoubtedly among the most memorable couples in the TV series “90 Day Fiancé.” Their story had a typical beginning; they contacted  using a dating application before meeting and falling in love in Dublin, Ireland; Andrei then relocated to the USA in search of a better life. Their fans will never forget the early struggles related to his unemployment and seemingly unachievable goals of a solid family and a luxurious life. Thankfully, although initially reluctant and somewhat annoyed, Elizabeth’s father offered Andrei a job, and the blessings kept coming. Here’s how the couple tailored the course of their life and where they are.

Elizabeth and Andrei live lavishly

Nothing could have predicted the success that Andrei and Elizabeth achieved. Although Elizabeth earned enough money as a Florida-based real estate agent, Andrei had arrived from Moldova on a K-1 visa, meaning that he could only work once he married. That proved difficult because of his boastful personality and refusal to accept criticism or do jobs that he deemed unworthy. Andrei was also on bad terms with two of Libby’s siblings, and others didn’t have a good opinion of him either. Finally, he left her father astonished after requesting a $100,000 loan without plans to repay it.

Fortunately, most of those problems are old history. Elizabeth and Andrei now have two children, live in a luxurious house with a long driveway, and run a successful real estate company. Moreover, they have several side hustles, including monetized content on YouTube, Cameo, OnlyFans, and TikTok, and both still work with Elizabeth’s father.


They welcomed their first child four years ago

After marrying in December 2017, the couple settled in Tampa, Florida. Andrei started working for her father’s company, CMP Capital Investments, LLC, first by helping renovate properties, then as a house flipper himself. Following much family drama between Andrei and her family, the couple moved out and filed to start their Limited Liability Company (LLC) named Castravet, INC in 2018, focusing on property management.

However, that fact went under everyone’s radar, leading to accusations that they were living on borrowed money and TV show salaries. That was unsurprising; following the 12 episodes of the fifth season of the main show, the couple starred in three episodes of “90 Day Fiancé: What Now” in 2018 before announcing that they were expecting and would stay on TV. Their daughter, Eleanor Louise Castravet, was born on 23 January 2019, weighing 6lbs 11oz or 3kgs.

The Castravets had a son last year

Following their appearances in the fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons of “90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” which included more family feuds and cute moments from their lives, the couple made their fans happy again. Fans who missed their March 2022 public announcement could see her pregnancy during the tell-all special of the seventh season, thus they were overjoyed, not surprised, when she gave birth to son Winston Leo Castravet on 4 October 2022, who weighed 7lbs 10oz or 3.5kgs. They also noted that their daughter was immediately ‘all about her baby brother.’ Elizabeth posted a three-month body figure update, showing that she’d already shed all her pregnancy weight ,and reported being happy and busy.

They enjoy family activities

They never hid their love for doing things together. However, Elizabeth and Andrei increased the frequency of social media posts featuring their family, while dedicating enough space to praising each other. Their Instagram followers could see the couple playing tennisboatinggoing to the swimming pool, and sunbathing on the beach, with and without their children.

Elizabeth promotes products on social media

Elizabeth continues to partner with companies that benefit her life, and promotes them via her social media profiles. She’s partnered with EveryPlate, a weekly healthy food delivery; Viori, a cosmetics brand; Viacord, a stem cell collection bank; and several others. Moreover, the couple has a joint Cameo account, @elizabethandrei, where they charge $75 for a personalized video and $225 for a video call.

Plus, Elizabeth manages Eleanor’s YouTube channel, Ellie’s World. She uploads videos of their trips to the candy store or home activities, such as baking and singing rhymes to Winston. Although a mother, Elizabeth isn’t afraid to charge $12,95 monthly for access to her OnlyFans account at @. She apparently refrains from posting full nudity, but has posted pictures of her naked lower body.

They are doing more photoshoots

Their followers have always praised the couple’s consistency and quality of social media updates. However, they decided to take things up a notch in 2022, when they started posting photoshoots with and without their children. Instead of relying on a friend or a relative, the couple hired a professional photographer, Lindsey VanderWal, who made her work available on Instagram at @lindseyvanderwalphotography.

That allowed the fans to see pictures from Elizabeth’s maternity shoot before they welcomed Winston. Similarly, it informed them that Ellie loves unicorns; hence they brought a horse wearing a horn to make her dreams come true. Moreover, the photographer captured Andrei excitedly throwing his children in the air, and the couple in a tight hug alone on a beach at sunset for Woman’s Day this year.


They are still feuding with the family

Although Elizabeth has six siblings – two sisters, and four brothers – three have been vocal about their dislike of Andrei. Her mom, Pamela Putnam, who later remarried, was concerned too, and very reserved in her approach. They could have ignored his shortcomings, such as a short temper, brash attitude, and unwillingness to accept his faults and correct his behavior, however, what hurt them the most was their opinion that Andrei and Elizabeth, especially him, manipulated their father, Chuck, into giving them money for their ventures.

They were surprised that the pair’s second wedding, in Moldova, supposedly low-key and small, became a costly event with many dancers and invitees. Although they didn’t know the couple’s financial situation, Elizabeth’s siblings were sure that their father had to foot the bills to make his daughter happy.

With the producers’ help, Elizabeth organized a family gathering during a 20 November 2022 episode of “Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” Although she invited her mother, and two sisters, Becky and Jenn, and seemed open to conversation, the tension immediately skyrocketed. That’s because she brought Andrei, making things awkward and overwhelming. After all, the family discussed why the couple announced the birth of their child on social media without notifying the rest of the family. At one point, Becky slapped Andrei, and the family had to consider attending therapy off-screen.

Andrei stays in shape as a father of two

Viewers may remember that following his show debut, Andrei had a tough time adjusting to the lifestyle in the US. Luckily, after gaining some weight, he returned to doing what he did in Moldova when a police officer; working out. With a slimmer figure, Andrei wisely used the lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic and is still in enviable physical shape; he’s also unafraid to show his progress and give fitness tips. His pictures from beach outings best illustrate that he lost the tough guy attitude, particularly following his son’s birth.

Andrei started smiling in pictures with his wife and children, and now radiates happiness. His Instagram followers noticed and complimented him, particularly his slim face and chiseled arms. That’s unsurprising to most; Elizabeth shared her love of cooking for her family over the years. Since she tries to make at least three home-cooked meals daily, the Moldovan beau doesn’t have problems staying fit.

They still celebrate religious holidays

Elizabeth and Andrei are both Christians, and their fans have seen them celebrate all major holidays in the US, including EasterHalloweenIndependence Day, and Christmas Eve. However, the couple also respects each other’s lineage, and celebrate days such as Saint Patrick’s Day and religious holidays in Andrei’s Orthodox Christianity religion. Although they rarely capture the latter, making fans wonder how religious Andrei is, his 2020 wedding in Moldova proved his devotion to his people’s traditions. Interestingly, their German Shepherd, Stella, has been with the family for most holidays since 2017. Thus, she was part of the family celebrations on Thanksgiving and Christmas last year.


Andrei may get deported

In late 2022 Andrei made waves among the show’s fanbase due to a potential secret. That’s because US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) representative invited him for an interview, which shocked everyone. His two-year green card which had expired was extended, and he thought that getting his permanent green card was all but guaranteed. However, his lawyer, Emel Ersan, explained that the only reason for an in-person invite with an immigration officer would be a recently discovered serious problem.

Emel explained that couples with children usually get a green card in the mail, and 95% of his cases never require an interview. After they concluded that the suspicion of marriage fraud wasn’t a logical explanation, the lawyer concluded that someone had reported him to immigration, or perhaps that an investigation into police enforcement in Moldova, in which Andrei testified, triggered a notification in the system. Andrei also admitted to overstaying his work and travel J-1 visa in the US for a few days in 2007 or 2008, which may have gone unnoticed. That led to immediate distancing from Elizabeth’s family, since they didn’t know who to trust.

Although all family members had the motive, Charlie, a fellow cast member, acted suspiciously; hence, he received the most blame. He slipped up during the tell-all episode and said, ‘If you are gonna treat somebody’s family the way you treat people, like, yeah, there might be a chance somebody might report you!’ However, he denied being the whistleblower, claiming that he ‘didn’t care and never thought about him.’ Time will tell if he lied, but most people believed that Charlie wouldn’t stoop so low, despite the grievances with his Moldovan brother-in-law.

Andrei bought a muscle car

Many fans were shocked to see Andrei boasting about his expensive ride in mid-January 2023, since his post went online around when the deportation news came out. He posted a picture of his black Chevrolet Camaro next to someone’s BMW X6 M and captioned it with, ‘Neighbors are not gonna be happy lol… But we work hard, and we play hard.’ Although he didn’t mention the price or the model, the cost of Camaros typically ranges between $35,000 and $135,000. His male fans applauded his purchase, some offering personal experiences. Regardless, most of his followers questioned his purchase amid the danger of deportation.

They are working on their house

As if purchasing a pricey vehicle wasn’t risky enough, some fans remember that the couple wanted to build a house, and purchased a home in late 2021. Andrei explained that they had been working hard for Elizabeth’s father in the sixth season, and deserved to own a house at that point in their lives. They were equally enthusiastic about not renting, and moving into a building that served all their needs.

However, they weren’t in tune regarding work responsibilities; Andrei wanted Elizabeth to work part-time and be a stay-at-home mom to their two children. In contrast, she felt that she was having an unnecessary career break, and that they could have hired a babysitter. They promptly shared many details of additions to their two-story home, including granite counters, sparkly patterned bathroom floors, a spacious white color-themed kitchen, and large couches. Elizabeth also planned to turn their guest room into a singing studio, and they decorated their daughter’s room in gold and pink.


The Castravets live the American dream

Although they unsurprisingly took a break while Elizabeth was pregnant with Winston in late 2022, the couple still works in their real estate company, of which he’s the president and she the vice president. Andrei still has his real estate license, and also works for his father-in-law.

Additionally, the couple utilized their skills in purchasing and personalizing their family home over the last year and a half. That made Andrei happy the most; after a nine-month building process, he said in August 2022, ‘It means a lot for me to own a house in America. Being an immigrant, to own a house is a huge step; it symbolizes my American dream.’

They are hard-working, yet loving parents

Andrei and Elizabeth attracted attention with their traditional yet polarizing relationship. She stood by her soon-to-be husband from the beginning, even if it meant ruining the relationship with her entire family. Andrei was criticized for being too macho, aggressive, dismissive of others, and irresponsible. However, the couple now owns at least one expensive car, two dogs, and a big house for their two children to grow up in.

Moreover, Elizabeth, who comes from a family of seven, expressed a desire to ‘someday have at least half of that,’ meaning that the couple could welcome their third and fourth child in the coming years. They certainly have the means, the environment, and the willpower, based on everything that happened so far. Thus, we expect the couple to return for the eighth season of TLC’s spin-off, possibly with news about expanding the family.

The Saddest Stories Ever Featured in Paternity Court



About “Paternity Court”

“Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court”, which ran from 2013 to 2020, was a non-traditional court show starring Lauren Lake, a respected family lawyer and legal analyst. The series was a 79th & York Entertainment and Orion Television production, and received a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program in 20019. Unfortunately, MGM was forced to discard all courtroom programs due to financial struggles in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and changes in ownership of the network.

With court programming being the second highest-rated genre on daytime television as of 2012, the inception of “Paternity Court” was also helped by the success of “Maury”. Nevertheless, there was a marked difference between the two shows, as “Maury” was more focused on drama and shenanigans, whereas “Paternity Court” worked towards using the test results as a way for the participants in the show to build healthy and long-lasting relationships. Ultimately, the goal of the program was to reinvigorate the court show genre by reaching the widest possible audience.

The format of each episode sees Lauren Lake speak to the show’s litigants and decide cases based on the results of DNA tests. Probate disputes over wills were also an integral part of the show; in early 2013, the show’s creator, David Armour, shared more of what happened on set – “We don’t take any of this lightly. There is a responsible side to the show where we help families get on the right path,” he shared. “We want to dig into these stories much deeper than any other court show does. We’re dealing with resolutions about how families can move forward now that they have results.”


Before and after the results, Lauren would take time to speak with her litigants. Most episodes of “Paternity Court” only focused on one case, unlike other present-day court shows which focus on two. However, it’s unclear just how involved MGM or the production team were with each family when filming wrapped up.

The doomed court series spawned two sister shows: “Personal Injury Court”, which was hosted by Gino Brogdon, and “Couples Court with the Cutlers”, which was hosted by Keith and Dana Cutler and used testing and evidence to prove – or disprove – infidelity. Sadly, all three shows were cancelled after ending production due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Saddest Moments

“Paternity Court” regaled its viewers with truly heart-breaking moments over the years, such as the episode in which Donna Andrews asked for a paternity test to prove that the man who had raised her was her biological father. Donna, who had gone out to dine with some friends in Atlanta one fateful evening, was shocked when a man approached her out of the blue and showed her a tattoo of her name on his leg. Obviously, this caused her to doubt everything about her childhood and the man she believed to be her biological father.

William Glenn, who claimed to be Donna’s biological father, said that he’d kept it a secret for thirty years because Donna had been raised in a loving household and he didn’t want to turn her life upside-down. Roger Andrews, the man who raised Donna, was deceased, as well as Donna’s biological mother. The plot thickens, as it turns out that Donna was aware of William’s existence due to him being the father of one of her younger sisters.

Although Roger and Donna didn’t actually live together, perhaps due to him being separated from Donna’s mother, he did everything a supportive father does, and was even present during Donna’s high school graduation ceremony. When Roger passed away on the due date of Donna’s second child, she was understandably traumatized; when she was approached by William at the restaurant that fateful night, she was still mourning Roger’s death, but made it clear that she wasn’t looking for a replacement by taking the case to “Paternity Court”.


Telling his side of the story, William shared that he and Donna’s mother began dating in 1976 and that Donna was born when William “left” for eight months. When William asked Donna’s mother about her pregnancy, she didn’t give him any clear answers or indicate that he could be the biological father.

Before the restaurant incident, other odd things happened to Donna that made her doubt Roger being her real father. While on a plane, she was somehow seated next to someone who claimed to know who her biological father was. When this person gave Donna a description, she was confused because it didn’t match Roger at all. Then, a few months after Roger died, one of Donna’s cousins confessed that she wasn’t really his daughter.

“You waited until my mother passed away. We don’t have nobody’s word but your word now,” Donna reproached William. When the DNA results revealed that William was indeed Donna’s biological father, she was blown away, and broke down in tears. Donna, who had brought a framed picture of Roger with her to the courtroom, also showed William the photo and doubled down on her stance: she considered Roger her father, not him.

The next case we’ll be discussing is equally depressing. Siblings Hector Hunt and Precious Raysor decided to sue their parents for a paternity test after a huge argument in which it was revealed that the man that they believed to be their father, Richard Jacobs, wasn’t after all. Despite being the only father figure in the siblings’ life, Richard allegedly revealed that the siblings weren’t his biological children while arguing with his wife. However, Richard claimed that he only said that in the heat of the moment, due to a hurtful comment his wife, Daisy Hammonds, had made.

“This is the only man I’ve known for all my life,” an emotional Precious berated her mother. “He’s been there for my kindergarten graduation, my sixth-grade graduation, how many men do you know sit in the delivery room with their daughter while they’re having a baby?” When Precious’s mother confessed that she didn’t really know who their father was, Precious exploded, as she had planned on Richard walking her down the aisle at her wedding, which would take place a few months after the episode.


As it happens, for years there had been rumors in the neighborhood of a man named Tommy Farmer being Precious and Hector’s biological father. When Tommy was shown on the screen for a videocall, Precious was so incredulous that she walked out of the courtroom. Daisy confessed to having had a sexual relationship with Tommy around the time of her pregnancy with Precious, and refused to look her children in the eye, which made her appear guilty.

When it was revealed that Richard wasn’t Precious or Hector’s biological father, he and the siblings broke down in court. Tearful hugs were shared between the three and Daisy also appeared visibly devastated. The episode ended on an even worse note, when Daisy shared that she wasn’t Hector’s biological mother, but rather a woman that had died shortly after childbirth was.

For the first 33 years of her life, Jazmine St. James was a daddy’s girl and was even walked down the aisle by the man she believed to be her father, Kenneth Esaw. However, six months before appearing in the show, Kenneth revealed during an argument that she wasn’t his biological daughter. Stunned, Jazmine and her brother opened a paternity case to get the answers they needed.

Kenneth always believed that he wasn’t Jazmine’s biological father but never found the right moment to tell her the truth. Apparently, he agreed to take a paternity test so that the truth could set him free, as the secret had been haunting him for over three decades. The argument between Jazmine and Kenneth started when Jazmine confronted her father as to why he wasn’t more present in his grandchildren’s lives.

After discovering the truth, Jazmine began suffering from depression and anxiety. “I feel like I’m going to die of heartbreak,” she confessed tearfully, sharing that she hadn’t been eating or sleeping since Kenneth dropped the bombshell.


Kenneth then shared that, shortly after getting into a relationship with Jazmine’s mother, they learned she was pregnant. However, when they went to the doctor, they realized that he couldn’t be the father because she was too far along. Kenneth’s mother was also present in the courtroom and corroborated his version of events.

When the DNA results proved that Kenneth wasn’t Jazmine’s biological father, he looked somewhat relieved, whereas she looked completely heartbroken. Even so, she thanked Kenneth for raising her as his daughter.

We can all agree that, although “Paternity Court” was never picked up by another network following its cancellation, Lauren Lake and the production team did a great job at sharing these people’s stories, and helping some families find the closure they needed to move on in their lives.

Michael Ilesanmi’s Toxic Relationship With Angela Deem



Michael Ilesanmi

Viewers of the “90 Day Fiancé” franchise are more than familiar with Michael Ilesanmi, who has been in a turbulent relationship with wife Angela Deem since 2018. Michael became a fan favorite in the second season of “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days” due to Angela being such a controversial character in the show; the blonde, who is in her late 50s, doesn’t let Michael work or have social media accounts and has made it clear on many occasions that she doesn’t trust him.

With that said, Michael hasn’t done much to build that trust either. Things were going well at the beginning of the relationship, when the couple connected on social media in 2018 – so well, in fact, that Angela soon flew out to Michael’s home country of Nigeria to visit him. The glaring age gap and cultural differences between the two soon became evident. At the time, Angela was 52 years old and already had grandchildren, whereas Michael was two decades younger.

Angela’s daughter and friends began voicing their concerns, and when the interracial couple began having disagreements in Nigeria, she wondered if her younger boyfriend was secretly embarrassed to be seen with her. At the beginning of the relationship, Michael also admitted that he had cheated on Angela by engaging in sexual acts with a local woman. Since then, the tenuous trust between the couple was broken.


Angela’s first trip to Nigeria ended with Michael handing her an engagement ring wrapped in an American flag. Almost as soon as she returned to the US, the TV personality accused her Nigerian lover of draining her bank account, and proceeded to scream at him over the phone, which many viewers considered verbal abuse. Angela had given Michael her debit card for him to make a $300 withdrawal, but somehow he took out three times as much – allegedly by mistake.

In the third season of “Before the 90 Days”, the duo was reunited and waiting for him to obtain his K-1 visa. After yet another onscreen argument, Michael tried to apologize to Angela for cheating on her by giving her a cake… Which Angela promptly threw at his face. The relationship became even more chaotic when the couple discovered that there were little to no chances of Angela getting pregnant; when she asked her daughter, Skyla, to act as a surrogate, Skyla was outraged and refused.

Unfortunately for Michael, his visa was denied, which Angela discovered when she returned to the US during the seventh season of “90 Day Fiancé”. Even so, the couple tried to put aside their cultural differences and work on their trust issues, before celebrating their grandiose Nigerian wedding in season five of “90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?”.

Days after the nuptials, which took place at the beginning of 2020, Angela had to unexpectedly return home due to the death of her ailing mother. The newlyweds were put to the test yet again when coronavirus-related travel restrictions were implemented before Angela could fly back to Nigeria, with both parties struggling to keep the flame alive.


While Angela waited for Michael’s spousal visa to come through, she put her baby search on the backburner and began dieting and exercising instead. However, her husband was vehemently against the idea of Angela slimming down or having a breast reduction. When Angela flirted with the doctor responsible for her weight loss surgery, Michael – who, by now, had become a minor celebrity thanks to his affable personality and hilarious on-screen moments – felt hurt and insecure. All this helped Angela become the villain of the relationship, despite Michael having cheated on her.

While healing from her surgeries, Angela tried to remotely track Michael’s activity and location via his phone, after he’d stopped communicating with her. This led to another explosive row that left the couple on the verge of a split; nevertheless, they gave things another go at the request of Tracey, Angela’s psychic.

In an attempt to win Michael back, Angela went under the knife for new breast implants, as her chest was his favorite feature of hers. During the season six Tell-All episode of “Happily Ever After?”, Angela began arguing with Michael’s aunt, Lydia, when the latter judged her for undergoing weight loss surgery instead of trying for a baby. Angela was so incandescent with rage that she flashed her breasts at the cameras; she also argued with Michael for taking his aunt’s side during the heated verbal argument.

The on-screen spat spiraled out of control and ended with Angela announcing that she would be acting single and flaunting her new, slimmer body until Michael could come to the US. During her “90 Day Fiancé” spin-off, the American met up with a former love interest, and was also seen destroying Michael’s car during a visit to Nigeria, which caused him to break up from her.


As things between Angela and Michael are so volatile, we just don’t know if the couple have broken up for good, or are planning to get back together. However, we can tell you more about Angela’s former flame, a handsome Canadian named Billy Sotiropoulos who also happens to be one of her close friends. Angela flew over to Canada to support Billy at his fundraising event, and was warmly welcomed when she touched down in Toronto.

Not everyone was pleased with Angela visiting Billy, with many followers of the couple reminding her that she would go crazy if Michael did the same. Anyone who keeps up with Angela and Michael’s exhausting marriage knows that the blonde has forbidden him from having female friends; meanwhile, she has no intentions of toning down her controversial online content, such as her provocative dancing videos.

In any case, it appears that Michael is now in the States after finally getting his green card. There have been rumors of Michael planning to leave Angela to be with his anonymous 30-year-old American girlfriend, with whom he allegedly cheated on his wife. These rumors have led to people thinking that Michael was only playing a waiting game with Angela, until he could obtain American citizenship. Nevertheless, only time will tell if the warring couple make things work or go their separate ways for good.

Jacob Roloff: The Rebel Roloff Who Left Reality TV Behind



About Jacob Roloff

As one of Matt and Amy Roloff’s four children, Jacob Roloff made something of a name for himself in the reality TV world, thanks to the family’s series, “Little People, Big World”. Since the show’s 2006 premiere, the Roloff clan have become household names, and fans were surprised to see Jacob walk away from it all.

Jacob was raised alongside his siblings Zach, Jeremy and Molly in the Oregon-based Roloff Farms, which Matt and Amy purchased in happier times at the beginning of their marriage. The farm, which originally boasted 36 acres and many luxurious features which Matt implemented throughout the years, held many happy memories for the second-generation Roloffs. Sadly, it would later become a sore point when Matt boldly decided to put part of it on the market, after being encouraged to do so by his new girlfriend.

Nevertheless, Jacob stopped living with his family many years before Matt tried to sell part of the property – many fans of the show wondered why the elusive Roloff had suddenly stepped away from the limelight. Although the show mainly focuses on Matt, Amy and Zach, as the only three members of the Roloff family who are little people, it appears that Jacob has never been interested in the entertainment industry, and prefers to keep a low profile.


The truth behind Jacob’s decision was revealed in late 2020, when the former reality TV personality shared his sexual abuse testimony on social media. Just 23 years old at the time, Jacob had walked away from the show a year prior, much to viewers’ dismay. His thousands of Instagram followers were horrified to read about the alleged abuse Jacob suffered at the hands of Chris Cardamone, who worked on the show from 2007 to 2010.

“It is often much easier to think about things than it is to talk about them. As a child, after what I realize now was a long grooming process, I was molested by an executive field producer of ‘Little People, Big World’, Chris Cardamone,” Jacob wrote. At the time of sharing his harrowing story, Jacob was bombarded by news outlets who wanted him to give a tell-all interview, but he turned down all such requests.

Nevertheless, Jacob’s Instagram post resulted in an immediate backlash against Chris, especially when the youngest Roloff shared that the executive field producer had been in touch with him in late 2015. PEOPLE magazine and other publications all tried and failed to extract a statement from Chris, but even more questions were raised when journalists began digging into his murky past.

Two months after Jacob shared his side of the story, The Sun explosively revealed that Chris had been arrested in October 2008 for child sex crimes. A Public Information Officer working at the Santa Clara Sherriff’s Office confirmed that Chris had been arrested and booked into jail, for the heinous offence of felony lewd and lascivious acts with a minor.


Ultimately, Chris was charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 with force, two counts of lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14, and one count of cruelty to child with possible injury or death. Sadly perhaps, he accepted a plea deal in December 2010 and served just 73 days in jail and four years of supervised probation. Some of the conditions of his probation included submitting to chemical testing, completing substance abuse counseling, and submitting to a property/person search.

Obviously, Jacob’s parents and siblings showed their support in the aftermath of the scandal, but for some netizens, that just wasn’t good enough. Viewers of “Little People, Big World” demanded to know why TLC and the production company allowed Chris to keep working on the show after being arrested for sex crimes, whereas others suspect that Matt and Amy knew what was going on but looked the other way so that their show wouldn’t get cancelled. However, Jacob has made clear that he doesn’t blame any of his family members for what he suffered.

These days, Jacob has over 360,000 Instagram followers and is focusing on being the best father possible to his son, Mateo. Jacob is also a fur parent to his beloved pet dog Luna, and frequently shares snaps of his tight-knit family unit on social media. Sadly, some of Jacob’s followers have been turned off by his parenting decisions, such as teaching Mateo sign language, but not showing his face on social media.

Nevertheless, Jacob’s day-one supporters aren’t going anywhere. “Am so so so stoked you broke away from the ‘image’ and shadow of your family and reality tv BS dynamics… you are one cool, intelligent, INTROSPECTIVE and insightful dude. THANK YOU”, one Instagram user commented under a recent post.

It’s true that Jacob can express himself more freely now that he’s not under any contractual obligations. Since leaving the show, he’s started working on his own greenhouse and growing marijuana – which is legal in the state of Oregon – sharing every step of the process with his fans.


As for Jacob’s siblings, Zach is the only one who remains on “Little People, Big World”. It makes sense, as the other Roloff siblings didn’t inherit dwarfism, and the show focuses on how little people such as Zach and his parents cope with everyday tasks and struggles.

Zach has been married since 2015 and has three children, all of whom were born with dwarfism. His wife, Tori, is a former kindergarten teacher and keen amateur photographer of average height. Unfortunately, Zach and Tori have been lambasted for choosing to keep having children despite Zach’s condition.

Jeremy, Zach’s twin brother, has his hands full between parenthood, marriage, and the number of projects he and his wife Audrey have on their plates at any given time. The handsome reality TV star, who studied at Brooks Institute of Photography and has a Bachelor of Arts degree, has two children named Ember Jean and Bode James.

Audrey and Jeremy are trying to make names for themselves in the creative industry, and have done so with a number of ambitious ventures such as co-authored books, their own podcast, and several small businesses.

Meanwhile Molly Roloff, Matt and Amy’s only daughter, is even more reclusive than her brother Jacob. Molly walked away from the show years ago for unspecified reasons, but is believed to be on good terms with the rest of the family. Jacob and Molly have openly supported each other throughout the years, especially in the wake of Jacob’s confession regarding the sexual abuse he suffered.
