Who is Amy Roloff's fiancé? After Little People Big World's patriarch and matriarch Matt and Amy Roloff's shocking (or maybe not-so-shocking?) split a few years ago, they have both been involved in some serious relationships. Matt's dating Caryn Chandler, who's been an employee of the Roloff family farm for over a decade. As for Amy, she's been in a relationship with boyfriend Chris Marek for over a year now. The couple even celebrated their one year anniversary on the show. So ... who is Chris Marek? All about the new man in Amy Roloff's life, who features prominently on this season of Little People, Big World.
1. Amy never thought she'd date someone average-sized.
"I just never thought someone who is average size would be interested in me," she previously revealed. "I just really want [Chris] to never question or doubt the relationship because I'm a little person. I just have a good time. I have fun with him. I never thought I'd be dating as a grandma, and it's nice to experience that and be with someone."
2. Matt and Amy still live about 500 feet away from each other.
People often ask how they make that work and whether either of them have plans to move away from the farm. "Am I gonna move off the farm? It's tough thinking about spending eternity, or whatever that means, here with Amy," Matt said earlier on this season of Little People, Big World. "Now that Amy and I are divorced, I just want my own path that's separate from Amy's. It really has to do with just creating a little more balance in my own life."
3. He loves motorcycles.
The couple embarked on a motorcycle road trip through Oregon, Washington, and Canada this past summer. But the timing of the trip was a bit controversial given that Amy's son Jeremy and his wife Audrey were due to give birth at the same time. This isn't the first time Amy has butted heads with Audrey, either.
Audrey is a devout Christian and the Roloff's divorce didn't sit well with her. Audrey took a shot at the Roloffs in a Facebook post from September 2016 thanking her husband. “Thank you for being my biggest supporter and encourager of my dreams,” she wrote. “Thank you for prioritizing me over work, guys night, your former family, your phone, and your dreams.”
Following the birth of Audrey's daughter, Ember, they've seemed to squash their beef. Audrey attended Amy's recent birthday party and all was well. Funny how babies bring everyone together.
4. Chris and Amy got into a big fight on their motorcycle trip.
"I'm definitely enjoying the trip, but we did get into an argument," Roloff confessed. "When we were having dinner, he just left, and he was gone for a long time, and I was left by myself. I had no idea where he was, what we was doing ... Ugh, I was so mad at him."
Chris eventually returned to the table, saying he had to step away to talk to friends bu Amy was not having it. Chris defended himself saying, "My head was in a different place when I walked away from the table. There's some fundamentals in a relationship, and the two that we've got nailed are trust and communication. We trust each other 100 percent and we communicate well, so that's part of the reason it's going so well." The two have since made up.
5. Fans have speculated the two are engaged.
Photos of Amy with a ring on her hand sparked speculation that their may be wedding bells in the future. "I see that ring, Amy," one commenter wrote. Another added, "Are you two engaged now???"
Sadly, the ring turned out to be on her pinky finger, so no wedding for these two ... yet.
6. He's been MIA from Amy's Instagram, prompting breakup rumors.
Fans noticed Amy has been posting a lot of photos without her beau. She posted photos with friends out to dinner and hanging out socially and she recently went to visit her daughter Molly in Spokane, Washington without Chris, prompting fans to wonder whether the two had called it quits. Neither Chris or Amy have released statements, so only time will tell on this one.
5. He says he gets along with Matt Roloff — but fans think differently.
Fans suggested Amy was taking shots at Matt on social media by being so openly gushy about Chris. But Matt hasn't exactly been tight-lipped about his new girlfriend, either. Chris answered everyone's burning question: Do Chris and Matt get along?
“To be honest, Amy was concerned in the beginning about how Matt and I might interact," Chris said. "[She has] no concerns about that now. Everything is good. Matt and I get along just fine.”
6. They recently got engaged!
She told People, who shared exclusive photos of Marek on his knee proposing to Amy, "I’m excited, I’m so surprised, I’m thrilled! “I never in a million years thought I’d be getting married again, but I also hoped for it! Now that it’s happening, I couldn’t be happier or more excited.”
