Little People’s pregnant Isabel Roloff reunites with estranged father and reveals her baby boy will meet his grandpa
ISABEL Roloff reunited with her estranged dad despite going "years without speaking" and revealed that her son will also get to meet his grandfather.
In the image, the reality star posed alongside her dad as the two smiled and hugged for the camera.
The TV personality looked radiant in a light green dress as she caressed her developing baby bump.
In the caption, Isabel detailed her difficult relationship with her father, and how she was making an attempt to reconcile their lost time.
"Yesterday I went to my papa’s house for lunch. We sat on the deck of my childhood home," she began.
"The play structure that once sat in the yard is gone. Some new trees planted, some old have fallen from the storms.
"Life looks a lot different than it once did. In a few months, I will bring my baby to this place," she revealed.
"He will meet his grandpa (tata in Chilean) and I will tell him the stories of running barefoot through the fields, catching frogs and praying mantis, picking blueberries, and running around with my dog."
Isabel then explained how her relationship with her dad has never been "perfect" and that she has learned to "forgive" for past mistakes.
"I have talked about my papa and I’s relationship on here candidly before. It was never perfect. We went years without speaking," she confessed.
The soon-to-be mom continued: "But to see him light up when he talks about his grandson, that gives life to my inner child. To hear the ways he’s excited to show him the world.
"My son doesn’t need to know the pain of the past or what my dad and I have been through. What he will know is that with resilience and a lot of forgiveness, we got to where we are now.
"A beautiful, complex place I wouldn’t trade for the world. 💛," she finished.
JACOB TO THE RESCUE
Isabel previously spoke about the importance of mending her strained relationship with her father, and how Jacob has helped her see things through a different lens.
In March, the TLC star told fans that she and her dad "didn’t have the best relationship growing up."
She explained that her "parents’ marriage was coming to an end" right as she was born, and she remembered, "him being kind of a workaholic" when she was a child.
“There was also a lot of hurt and trauma there. When I was a teenager, I longed for and often wondered if I’d ever forgive him or heal my relationship with him," she admitted.
Isabel then regaled how when Jacob came along, "their bond was instant.”
“He started talking about my dad in such a positive light, rewriting the story I had written in my head about him. Jacob saw my dad as funny, and helpful, and all of the things I’d been neglecting to see about him," she recalled.
Isabel and Jacob announced their first pregnancy on July 20th, and they are due towards the end of the year.
