It’s the news no bride wants to hear: their father may not be there for them on their big day. Like most couples navigating wedding planning during the pandemic, Amy Roloff and Chris Marek have compromised when it comes to location, as “other places just kind of eroded away and plan B became plan A,” but also the absence of family or friends. Per People, Amy’s currently grappling with the idea that her 92-year-old father “may not make it.”
The “Little People, Big World” star shared an emotional Instagram Story on August 17, opening up about her dad’s recent ill health, writing, “My Dad. He’s 92. He’s been in the hospital for the last two weeks. Not sure if he’ll make it to our wedding.” While it’s unclear why her father was hospitalized, Amy intimated he’s on the road to recovery and that she’s “just happy” to see him in Michigan again. “I’m glad he’s now getting better/stronger. But God knows and so I keep giving it up to him.” The caption covered an adorable father/daughter selfie.
Meanwhile, Amy has bestowed some other special honors on other family members. During a recent episode, Amy asked her four-year-old grandson Jackson to be their ring bearer, per US Weekly. “I don’t really expect Jackson to understand what a ring bearer is, but I’m hoping he’ll not be intimidated by all the people,” Amy said. But grandma (or “Mimi” as she’s called) and grandson have been practicing, so hopefully it’ll go smoothly!
