I suppose it's the nature of the world we live in: When reality stars let us peek into their lives, we want more. Take the Roloff family of TLC's Little People, Big World for example. Zach and Tori Roloff have invited us into some of their most intimate moments. Their engagement, their wedding, their pregnancy. But we want more. While we might know a great deal about Zach Roloff, having watched him grow up on television, we still don't know much about his wife. What does Tori Roloff do for a living (when she's not busy delivering a human into the world, of course), and what did her life look like pre-Little People, Big World? Enquiring minds want to know.
Tori Roloff (whose maiden name is Patton) is a schoolteacher when she's not a reality television star. The kindergarten teacher started her maternity leave at the end of April, and shared a snap of her classroom (with the children's faces blurred for protection, naturally) with the sweet caption:
Bitter sweet day!!! It was my last day with my kinders and to say I'll miss them is an understatement. I am so thankful to have had a group that was so easy and respectful. Saying goodbye to them was so hard, but I know we have such An amazing adventure ahead of us. Can't wait to take baby roloff back to school to introduce him to the kids he's listened to the last 9 months!
Tori had baby boy Jackson Kyle Roloff just 16 days after her last day of school. It looks like she left her "little kinders" behind just in time for her new role: mom.
The 25-year-old teacher and husband Zach were married in July 2015 and have been together for seven years. And if her Instagram post on their anniversary is anything to go by, it seems their relationship is still holding strong.
She captioned the photo:
It's been 7 years since this guy made me his and I have loved him ever since. I love him more every single day and thank God he is mine. Zachary you make me smile every day and I love our conversations about life and our dreams together.
Since the birth of baby Jackson on Sunday, Zach told People that the young couple are adjusting to their new roles beautifully:
Baby and mother are doing great and Jackson is already mastered holding daddy’s fingers and snuggling with mom! He is adorable and Tori and I are loving being parents.
Of course, Tori could be considered uniquely prepared for motherhood as a kindergarten teacher. One wee baby must feel like a breeze after a classroom full of 5 year olds, right?
