What an amazing motorcycle trip we did in Aug for 5 days! . 😎 First half of the trip we rode along the beautiful magnificent Oregon coast down to the Redwood forest in California. Woohoo! ❤️ Just beautiful. On our way back up had the adventure of riding most of the day in the rain- heading to Crater Lake. Still loved every moment 😎 I think I’m a pretty good trooper and passenger and Chris is a fantastic rider - careful, safe and adventurous. We make for good riding partners ❤️. He planned the whole trip for us. 😊 We had a great time together and w/ friends that came with us - Lisa & Paul, Ron and Beth. I think Chris and I will be riding for a long time together. ❤️💋 #amyroloffssecondact #travelswithamyandchris #beautifulcountry #usa #motorcycleriding #loveit #oregoncoast #theredwoods
I look forward to this annual motorcycle trip Chris and I take (he’s been doing it for years and I’m glad I’m a part of it now , 3rd year 😎😘). Our 2nd day and having a blast. Rode the back roads to the coast, stopped in Reedsport and now just past CoosBay. Going to make it to the Redwoods (CA) tonight. I love riding w/ this guy. Having a blast 😎❤️. #amyroloffssecondact #travelswithamyandchris #motorcycleride #backroads #oregoncoast
Went on an awesome motorcycle trip w/ Chris and friends 😎 - from riding along the gorgeous coastline, to the magnificent Redwoods in CA , the adventure of riding in the rain (oh boy), to beautiful Crater Lake (Oregon’s only National Park), to seeing a few of OR covered bridges to home. More photos to come. In the meantime my poor Felix fell ill and I’m trying to figure out what’s wrong. He got sick on Thursday and he’s not getting better. It may be a kidney issue. My poor little fella. It’s going to be a busy hectic week. From getting home from a great trip, to figuring out how to get Felix better, wedding coming up, still finding a house, speaking engagement to purging and oh yeah working. And it’s all going to work out. That’s the hopeful part. Monday happenings. 😊🌻💙🐾💙🌻😊 love my #rescuedog #motorcycletrip #poorlittlefelix🐾 #amyroloffssecondact

“I’m excited, I’m so surprised, I’m thrilled!” Amy tells Us. “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.”

Marek, for his part, detailed the thought he put into the moment. “I was very nervous!” he says. “It had to be a heart-shaped diamond because I knew that’s what Amy wanted.”

The reality star filed for divorce from Matt, 57, in June 2015 after 27 years of marriage. The exes, who finalized the proceedings in May 2016, are parents of twins Jeremy and Zach, 29, daughter Molly, 26, and son Jacob, 22.

Amy gushed about her relationship with Marek in April. “I would definitely love to get married one day, but it’s not something that I’m intentionally pursuing. If it happens, and if it happens between Chris and I, if I say yes, then that means my whole heart, everything is into it,” she told Us at the time. “I do take marriage very seriously, and I do think it is forever.”

Matt seemed on board with the idea of his ex-wife remarrying too. “We tease each other,” he said. “Maybe I more tease you, but behind the scenes, when the cameras aren’t rolling and we’re in the office together, I’d say, ‘Hey, what are we going to do next season? Maybe you should get married. That’d be a good episode.’ ‘No, you get married first.’ So we kind of play that whole game.”

Before meeting Marek, Amy admitted she was skeptical she would find lasting love. “I was just like, ‘Yeah, I’ll be single for the rest of my life.’ Which is good too because I still kind of life myself,” she revealed. “But yeah, he’s a great guy and we’re really doing good.”

Little People, Big World returns to TLC in the spring of 2020.
