The former Little People, Big World stars announced the arrival of their second child, a baby boy named Bode James Roloff, on Instagram on Friday afternoon.
Baby Bode was born at 7:36 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 8 — his due date! — weighing 9 lbs., 2 oz., and measured 21 inches long.
“He is here!” the new mom of two captioned a series of newborn photos taken in the hospital, while dad Jeremy shared his own images alongside the caption, “Welcome to the family son!”
The couple’s baby boy joins big sister Ember Jean, whom Jeremy, 29, and Audrey, 28, welcomed in September 2017.

Audrey’s pregnancy was not without its challenges as a mom to a toddler this time around. Last month, she and Jeremy took Ember to the emergency room after her fever spiked.
In a video shared around 4 a.m. on Dec. 18, the worried dad told his followers that he had been at the hospital for more than five hours while waiting for their daughter’s test results.
“Ember’s fever spiked pretty bad and we just decided to go to the E.R. because of some problems she’s been having all week,” he shared. “She’s just been feeling really sick.”
He continued, “The hospital just takes forever, so we’ve been waiting for her urine sample to come back and it’s been three and a half hours. It doesn’t make any sense.” (According to Jeremy, the family returned home around 4:54 a.m.)
On Dec. 30, Audrey shared pictures from a maternity photo shoot to Instagram, raving about the family’s new addition and her anticipation for his upcoming arrival.
In two of the photos, the then-mom-to-be could be seen sitting on her bed in a black bralette and shorts, holding her growing baby bump.
“Finally snapped a few pics of the bump while baby boy is still cozy inside?? Pregnancy is really just a remarkable experience. It’s such a gift to carry our baby on the inside and I can’t wait [to] carry him on the outside soon?,” she captioned the series of photos.
“I feels [sic] unreal that we are already at #39weekspregnant and get to meet our little guy any day now,” Audrey added.
