We watched Jacob Roloff grow up right before our eyes on Little People, Big World. He has amicably split from the reality show — more on that here — and has moved on with his life. His two brothers, Zach and Jeremy, have both married and are dads. His sister Molly also got married.
But most recently, he’s become engaged at only 21 years old. So, who is Jacob Roloff’s fiancé? Here are 7 things to know about redhead Isabel Sofia Rock.
1. The two are childhood friends.

According to Rock's Instagram post, “We met on the school bus when we were young; the houses we grew up in only being a few miles apart in Helvetia, Oregon and this led to a long friendship. We started dating when I graduated high school, been together three years now, and raised our two pups together…”
2. They got engaged on Christmas.

Jacob proposed on a frozen pond in Iceland, late on Christmas day. How sweet is that?
3. She's an artist and photographer.
Art is release. Take everything you think you know about yourself and then start painting. It humbled me in a deep way and encouraged me to heal. I never in a million years thought that anybody would like my art, let alone that I'd even like it, but here we are. It's been a year since I picked up a paintbrush and started diving in. On November 9th, I have my third art showing in Portland! If you'd like to come message me and I'll give you the details! As always thanks for the support and love you show.

Her mother died in 2014, with Isabel making a promise to write a book about her mom and use the money to build her dream home.
In a heartfelt post in October 2017, she wrote, “Captioning this photo ‘I miss my mom’ is a bit too obvious and repetitive to all of the posts I've ever written about her. She was my best friend. I know everybody says that about their mom but I mean we did everything together. Friends would ask me to hangout and almost always I would've rather hung out with her... I remember one time in particular after one of those days I said to her, through tearful eyes, ‘Mom, I know you are sick but you have to grow old enough for me to write my book, and then I'll have the money to build your dream house. It'll be just like those fancy ones but better, exactly how you'd want it.’ She'd just smile her warm, comforting smile. I still want to build you that dream house, Mama. Just now you'll be able to appreciate it in a different way.”
5. She gets along well with the Roloff family.
One of my favorite parts about the day was how much these two, my dad and Jacob's mom got along Even though Jacob and I have been together for three years, they met for the first time this year. More photos because there were just so many and it was such a beautiful day

Since the two have known each other for years, she’s gotten to know Jacob’s family. She even attended Molly’s wedding! His mom and her dad also seem to get along swimmingly. That’s the best news any future bride could ask for.
6. She's an outspoken liberal.
Isabel has attended rallies and marches for environmental protection, often tweets her support for Black Lives Matter and is outspoken against sexism. Her ideologies break from the Roloff family, who are conservative Christians, especially Jeremy and his wife, Aubrey.
7. She's incredibly supportive of her husband-to-be.

It’s no secret Isabel loves and adores Jacob. And she has no problem gushing about him.
“I love this guy. I'm so proud of him,” she said. He's currently finishing up his second book in less than a year. What?! Who does that?... He continuously inspires and encourages me. His energy is calming and he is so sure of himself that he leaves others feeling comforted.
