TLC’s “Little People, Big World” star Zach Roloff is getting married and TLC is in the very early stages of planning an engagement or wedding special, TheWrap has learned.
Zach, 23, got engaged to girlfriend Tori Patton, 22, on March 29. Patton has become familiar to the show’s fans through appearances over the last couple years.
“Another Roloff is engaged! Congratulations Zach & Tori!,” TLC posted on the series’ official Facebook page, along with the above photo of the couple.
Zach, who is Matt and Amy Roloff’s only child with dwarfism, is the family’s second son to get engaged. Last March, his twin brother Jeremy got engaged to girlfriend Audrey Mirabella Botti.
“I couldn’t be more proud or more overjoyed w/ my two sons Jeremy & Zachary,” mother Amy wrote on Facebook. “They’ve chosen a wonderful woman and asked them to be a part of their life and join them on the rest of their life journey. They said Yes! I’m excited to have Tori and Audrey a part of the family – Love Love.”
An individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap that TLC was already in early talks to feature Jeremy’s engagement/wedding on an upcoming special and is now considering something similar for Zach.
This news of two upcoming Roloff weddings should serve as a bright spot for the show’s fans after Matt and Amy announced their separation, which was the focus of the “Little People, Big World” special that aired in March.
Matt and Amy also have a daughter, Molly, 20; and a third son, Jacob, 17. “Little People, Big World” debuted on TLC in March 2006.
