Little People's pregnant Isabel Roloff admits she's starting to see 'stretch marks forming' after trolls body-shamed her

LITTLE People, Big World’s pregnant star Isabel Roloff admitted she’s starting to see “stretch marks forming.”

The 25-year-old opened up about her changing body after trolls body-shamed her.

Isabel took to Instagram on Saturday to share a photo of herself cradling her growing baby bump as she sat on a blanket in the grass.

The Little People, Big World star opened up about accepting the changes her body is experiencing during her first pregnancy, writing: “Since this is my first pregnancy, I am allowing myself to feel everything that comes along with it deeply.

“That means having compassion for myself on those days when I might struggle a little with my body image more than others.

“I know it is normal, I am human, and I can still love the miracle of life my body is creating 🙏🏻”

The expectant mother continued: “I am now beginning to see some small stretch marks forming, and these days I am not fitting into certain clothing, but that doesn’t mean I’m not eternally grateful for the opportunity of becoming a mother.”

Isabel concluded: “I wrote this poem soon after finding out I was pregnant (swipe) and it helps to ground me.

“My hope is that it touches who it is supposed to. 💗”

The poem, which was featured in the second slide of the post, reads: “My temple, this vessel, is no longer my own.

“Because for nine months and many moons, two souls will call this body home.”

Isabel, who is expecting her first child with husband Jacob Roloff, has been open about being body-shamed by trolls in the past.


Back in February, one troll slammed Isabel for being “much bigger” than Jacob, 24.

The TV personality took to Instagram to share some encouraging words after someone asked her to do a podcast episode on "the experience of being a curvy person with a skinnier partner."

She wrote: "This is something that isn’t talked about nearly enough and it leaves people feeling alone. That is my experience, I have often felt alone in this."

Isabel then described how photos of the couple result in comments like “she is so much bigger than him," “either she can cook or has a great personality," or even “that’s disrespectful, lose weight for your man.”

"The comments are then swiftly deleted by me and then the person is blocked," Isabel told her followers. "I am in a good place with my body now, I really am, but it still sucks to see them.

"A lot of body image issues stem from wanting to take up less space. And when you are 'bigger' than your partner, you can feel incredibly embarrassed by taking up more space than them."

After stating that no one “owes our partners any particular size,” she continued: "The size of our bodies has no bearing on our worth. Our unique body shapes should be celebrated, not shamed. Besides, we are more than our bodies. So much more.

"You need to know that it’s okay to be shaped differently than your partner. It’s more than okay, it’s beautiful. It’s perfect.

"I have struggled with this for so long in secret, if me talking about it openly helps to normalize it, then it will have been worth it."

More recently, Isabel admitted she didn’t publicly share photos from her 2019 wedding in fear that she would be body-shamed.


Earlier this month, Isabel and Jacob announced their pregnancy news  with several photos from a sweet photoshoot, which showed Jacob cradling his wife’s growing baby bump.

Alongside the photos, they wrote: "We are elated to share that the baby boy we have been dreaming of is coming this December."

Since revealing the news, Isabel has been opening up about her plans for motherhood on social media.


Isabel isn't the only pregnant Roloff, as Jacob's brother Jeremy, 31, and his wife Audrey, 30, are expecting their third child together.

The couple revealed on Instagram they are expecting their third child  in November.

The couple are already the parents to son Bode James, one, and daughter Ember Jean, three.

Alongside a clip of Jeremy and Audrey playing with their kids, they revealed: "We’re about to be a family of 5! Our little tie breaker is coming this November!"


Isabel and Jacob’s happy news comes after his brother Zach’s wife, Tori, suffered a miscarriage.

After suffering a miscarriage in March, Tori and Zach have had to become each other's support systems.

Tori, 30, previously told Us Weekly: “We do a really good job of stepping in when the other one needs a minute. I think that we are really good at, like, communicating when [we] need a minute or [we] need a second.”

The couple, who tied the knot in 2015, share four-year-old son Jackson and one-year-old daughter Lilah.

Tori's miscarriage was documented on the most recent episode of Little People, Big World.
