Little People, Big World stars Matt and Amy Roloff have decided to separate after 26 years together.
"Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation," they tell ET in a statement.
Matt will now be living in the guest house.
"Matt remains living on the farm in our guest house and we work together everyday on the farm, on our business endeavors and most importantly, raising our amazing children," they add. "We sincerely appreciate the unwavering support, understanding and prayers from our
family, friends and many fans. May God Bless you."
The Roloffs have four children – twins Jeremy and Zack, 23, Molly, 20, and Jacob, 17. Their hit TLC reality show focuses on their six-member family's farm life in Portland, Oregon, with both the couple and their son Zack being diagnosed with dwarfism.
In the clip above for a new special with the family airing March 25 on TLC, the couple discusses their separation.
"Amy and I stuck it out for years and years when maybe we shouldn't have," Matt admits. "I never quite felt at home in my own home so something needed to change. We needed to try something different."
"I think what Matt and I failed to do over many, many years is learned to live together," Amy says. "It's not my choice for him to leave. I am saddened by it. It's been 26 years. We don't have a plan as far as how we are going to work this out so it's not going to be easy."
