Tori Roloff Gushes Over Zach on 4th Wedding Anniversary, Melting Hearts on Social Media

August 6, 2019 Updated: August 11, 2019

For Zach and Tori Roloff of the hit TLC show “Little People, Big World,” nothing has ever been “normal” or easy. Zach Roloff has had to contend with serious health problems related to his dwarfism ever since he was a child, including major surgery in the first season of the family’s show.

Though his parents Amy and Matt Roloff had four children all together, Zach was the only one who inherited dwarfism. With his diminutive stature, only 4 feet and 4 inches tall, he also has to deal with a world that isn’t made with little people in mind. But Zach’s life changed forever when he met Tori back in 2010.

At the time, Tori was working on the Roloff’s family farm, picking pumpkins. In the fall, the Roloffs would hire young people from the area like her to come and pick during the peak of the season.

Zach hadn’t really had a relationship before, but he knew that Tori was so special, he had to overcome his fears. Tori told People Magazine that their “first date lasted five hours, we’ve been together ever since.”

According to Zach, “Tori brought me out of my shell and made me more social. She gave me confidence.” But for Tori, taking her special bond with Zach onto TV was another thing entirely. “We’re such a unique pairing, and we have a really cool story to share, but it was terrifying.”

But Tori faced her fears of being on TV and quickly became a regular fixture on the show and a favorite of fans all over the country. Soon, Zach proposed and the two were married on the family farm.

The happy news soon followed that Tori was pregnant, and she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Jackson. Baby J, as his mom often calls him, was born with achondroplasia, which is the most common form of dwarfism. Tori told People, “I just pray that he’s caring and thoughtful, like his father.”

As for Zach, he shared with People that he was devoted to making sure Jackson grew up with all the opportunities he had and more. “Whatever he wants to do in life, we’re going to find a way to help him do it. That’s our job in life now.”

The years have gone by and Zach and Tori are as strong as ever. Recently, they celebrated their fourth anniversary with a trip to nearby Portland for a romantic boat cruise on the Willamette River.

Tori also referenced their little baby girl who will be arriving in November. “[You] have given me the gift of being your wife and becoming a mom! TWICE!”

Tori hasn’t had an easy pregnancy, with lots of morning sickness in her first trimester and gaining weight a lot faster than she did when she was pregnant with Jackson. “I have had a harder time accepting my body this go around,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “Hearing people ask me if I’m sure it’s not twins definitely does not help. (For all our sakes — don’t ever ask a woman this question. Like ever.)”

As for Zach, he celebrated their anniversary with a simple but heartfelt message to the love of his life on Instagram: “Happy Anniversary Tori! Love you 😍 😉.”

Tori has opened up about the difficulties she’s faced as a mother, getting lots of criticism and negative feedback from people on social media. However, she’s pushed back against mommy-shaming and has focused on being the best mom and wife she can be.

As she wrote on Instagram: “We’re all doing the best we can and that’s all we can do. I love my son and my family unbearably and I do what I think is best for them.” Amidst all the anxieties of motherhood and modern life, it’s great to see Tori and Zach focusing on their incredible relationship, which has beaten all expectations and predictions.
