Jeremy and Audrey Roloff are expecting their second baby! The couple, who rose to fame on TLC’s Little People, Big World, announced the big news on July 1, 2019.

Audrey took to Instagram to share the news that she’s pregnant. She shared some adorable photos and wrote:

“Baby #2 is coming in January!!!🎉 Ember is gonna be a big sister!😍😭 We are so grateful and excited for this little blessing to join our family💗🙏🏻.”

Jeremy shared the same pictures, writing:

“We’ve got some exciting news: Ember Jean is going to be a big sister! We’re very excited to grow our family. Thanks for following our journey and for your continual support of our family. 🙏🏼.”

Other members of their TLC family were thrilled to hear the exciting news. Jinger (Duggar) Vuolo wrote: “Congrats! Super excited for you all!” And Jeremy’s mom, Amy Roloff, wrote: “Woohoo! I’m so thrilled to be a grandma again.”

Jeremy and Audrey Roloff first met in 2010. They started dating in 2011, and in March 2014, Jeremy asked Audrey to marry him. The happy couple tied the knot in September of that same year.

Audrey and Jeremy spent a few years in wedded bliss before they decided to start a family. Three years after getting married, they announced they were expecting their first child.

At the time, Jeremy wrote on Instagram:

“The secret is out… I’m going to be a dad! The author and creator of life has entrusted us with our first child – wow. Inevitably this means some big exciting changes for us this year, we’re excited to embark on this journey and share it with you all. We’re praying for a healthy baby Roloff!”

Jeremy and Audrey welcomed their baby girl to the world on September 10, 2017. Jeremy shared a touching message about his new daughter:

“She’s absolutely beautiful – a face that draws you in. What a miraculous [experience]. So much to say, but for now we’re resting at home soaking In the present – honored that we’ve been entrusted with this little life. Welcome to our family Ember Jean, we’re so excited to meet you. May you be a glowing, fierce, and radiant light in this world.”

Audrey was just as excited about the birth of their daughter. She wrote:

“The second she was out of my belly and into my arms, the tears of pain ceased, and Jeremy and I looked at our daughter and each other with tears of uncontainable joy. We are in complete awe of the miracle of life, and feeling so blessed to be entrusted with such a beautiful daughter. Sweet little Ember, may you always be a light in the darkness, glowing in all you do, enduring, [fierce], and hard to extinguish.”

Although they were excited to become parents, the transition wasn’t easy for Jeremy and Audrey. Audrey explained:

“While I am overflowing with love for my daughter and husband, I won’t sugar coat it… these past two weeks have been HARD. The first 24 hours with Ember were bliss, but after that it was as if I went back into labor again… I was well prepared for the pain and suffering that comes with childbirth, but I was not prepared for the pain and suffering that comes afterwards. I got all the things… the common ‘TMI’ postpartum hurts, along with severe engorgement, too much milk, not enough milk, blisters, bruises, clogged ducts, and mastitis. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the pain that I’ve experienced while breast feeding has been comparable to unmedicated labor contractions. Inevitably, all of this has left me feeling like I am failing my baby, frustrated, discouraged, and heart ached. But even though the tearful sleepless nights persist, so will I. I will continue to pour myself out in sacrificial love for this baby girl who makes every hurt worth enduring.”

Now Ember is an energetic toddler. She loves to spend time with her family, which is great, because her family is about to become a little bit bigger!

That’s right, Jeremy and Audrey are expecting! Baby Roloff No. 2 is officially on the way. Ember is going to be a big sister!

Jeremy and Audrey couldn’t be more excited to welcome another baby to their family. In April, Audrey told Us Weekly: “We do want to have more kids. We’ve always wanted to have a big family. … We don’t put a timeline or a number on it, but Lord willing, we definitely want to have more kids and we’ll take them one at a time.”

Audrey and Jeremy aren’t the only Roloffs expecting a baby. Jeremy’s twin brother, Zach, and his wife Tori are also expecting a baby! They are parents to 2-year-old Jackson.

They shared the exciting news on May 13, 2019. Tori wrote on Instagram:

“Zachary and I are so excited to announce that Jackson is going to be a big brother! We are expecting a sweet baby girl this November! 🎀 Thank you so much for always supporting our family and loving us!”

Ember and Jackson are close in age, and now the new Roloff babies will be close in age as well! These cousins will definitely have a great time when they hang out together.

Jacob Roloff, Jeremy and Zach’s younger brother, also has exciting things happening this fall. He and his fiancée, Isabel Rock, are set to tie the knot on September 7, 2019.

There are exciting things happening for everyone in the Roloff family! We can’t wait to see what the next few months have in store.
