The weekend was all about merriment for the delighted Roloffs as they gathered for a surprise celebration of their loving matriarch, Amy Roloff‘s 60th birthday.
Although Amy’s actual birthday was on September 17, her kinsfolk could not help but honor her once again with a surprise party involving her daughters-in-law and seven grandbabies.
Amy Roloff Marks 60th Birthday With Daughters-In-law And Grandkids
According to a series of Instagram Story posts from several family members, the surprise event appeared to be a success, with Amy’s grandkids basking in the moment with her. Tori Roloff, one of her daughters-in-law, shared a picture of the matriarch beaming with three of her grandchildren; Josiah and Lilah were seated with her while Jackson stood beside her.
The mother-of-three wrote on the post, “All the DILs pulled off an awesome surprise for Mimi’s 60th birthday!!,” adding, “We love you @amyjroloff.” It is worthy of note that DILs in Tori’s message referred to Amy’s daughters-in-law, who appeared to be the masterminds behind the surprise birthday celebration.
Audrey Roloff, another DIL, shared a similar post featuring Amy with another three of her grandkids, Ember, Bode, and Radley. The three little ones were Audrey’s kids, who sat beside their grandmama and were all smiles. “Surprised Mimi yesterday,” she penned across the update adding an emoji signifying her celebratory mood.
Around the same time, Tori uploaded another photo of two little cousins, Jackson and Ember, standing under several of the event’s decorations, including some balloons and a large 60-sign rose gold inflatables. “We loved getting everyone together!!!” she exclaimed. “Rallying 7 grandkids is no easy task.” She also gushed about the prominent motivational speaker in another post which Amy reshared.
Another post showed an image of the celebrant in front of several pink-themed party décor and what looked like a birthday cake. Tori’s attached note read, “60 years young,” prompting Amy to confess on her repost, “Oh dear! I don’t feel this age though,” alongside a laughing with tears emoji.
Turning 60 is certainly a significant accomplishment for the veteran baker, and she seemed to have had the perfect celebration with her kids and grandchildren. She admitted so via an Instagram Story post which In Touch reported, featuring a snap of herself and her husband, Chris Marek, a day after the occasion.
Amy appreciated her family’s efforts and mentioned that she was still celebrating, even days after her official date of birth. There was also no better way to do so than to honor the milestone with Marek and her grandkids.
Speaking of the TV personality’s seven grandchildren, in addition to Tori and Audrey’s three children respectively, Amy’s youngest son Jacob Roloff has a son Mateo with his wife, Isabel Rock.
As fans are aware, all her children were from her first marriage to Matt Roloff, who was clearly absent from the surprise celebration as he is involved in an ongoing conflict with his son, Zach Roloff.
They appeared not to be on the same terms regarding the sale of their family property, which Matt opened up about in a season 22 episode, revealing that his son was demanding and not open to negotiation.
And although Amy’s ex-husband may still have bad blood with her and their son, he eventually came to terms with his decision to sell, saying, “Letting go, it’s part of life.”
The Brilliant Author Considers Selling Her Part Of The Family Farm To Ex-Husband
Matt, Zach, and Amy seem to have been at odds for a while since the ex-couple planned to split their assets relating to the family farm, leading the matriarch to consider selling her part.
As The Blast reported last April, the duo had been separated for half a decade, and they own a huge pumpkin area and farm in Oregon where the “Little People, Big World” show is often set. In a snippet for an episode of the show, Amy mentioned that she always knew her former spouse would want all their property in the end.
The clip also featured Zach asking his wife if she heard about his father’s plans to “buy my mom out.” And naturally, she wondered if it was a bad idea or not. Amy’s decision to sell appeared to stem from Matt’s offer to buy out her ownership in the divorce proceedings, though it was unclear at the time if she would agree.
