Jacob Roloff 13th Birthday

Happy Birthday to Jacob Roloff! He's now a teenager -- 13 years old.



For approximately the next 4 months is the only time that Matt and Amy are going to have 4 teenagers (Jeremy and Zach turn 20 May 10th).

Happy Birthday Jake!

Happy Bday! This show is making me feel old ;)

Judy said...

The teen years...I'm glad I'm not Amy and Matt! Jacob is already such a handful, all I can say is good luck Matt and Amy.

Greg said...

I wonder if anyone in the family remember, hehe. Happy Birthday Jake! (although I am sure that would mean nothing anyway, haha)

Sheri said...

Best wishes to Jacob. His faults have been well documented, but now is a time for him to start to mature. Hopefully he takes after big brother Jeremy and turns into a fine young Roloff.

Brandon said...

Sure thing, Sheri. Don't we all hope Jake follows is Jer's footsteps and ends up being in the Enquirer for racist comments and ends up being like both Zach and Jeremy, with no work ethic at 20 and coasting off the tv show.

Reach for higher goals than that, Jake!

Craw said...

Wanna make a bet he's pouting over something today? lol.

Carol said...

Happy Birthday!

Is it just editing (because the show is so far behind) or does it seem like he has shaken the injury bug? Let's hope that trend continues!

Em said...

That's a nice picture of him. Smiling! I think he's going to be a very handsome teenager. Watch out girls!

Jim W said...

This is as good of a time as any for him to finally start growing up and cease with the baby antics.

Expressed said...

Happy birthday!

Brandon, imo that's a myth. The family gives Jacob plenty of attention. By the way some people talk you would think they lock him away and nobody brings him food. He gets as much attention as the other kids and easily as indulged as the other kids with toys and stuff.

I don't know what they did for his 13th birthday, but the twins haven't had huge parties the last couple of years either (at least not that they said, then again I admit I don't remember them saying exactly what they got as presents.) If they keep doing the show (collecting $$) pretty soon Matt and Amy will just be able to buy them all a soccer team!

Lynn said...

What do you give a kid that already has everything?

I'll try to be optimistic and hope that the teen years will bring maturity and not rebellion from a kid who already is rebellious enough?

tay said...

he's not as cute as jeremy was at that age. i don't know why people say he is? i like jeremy alot better.

Hopefully they don't give him another phone (an iPhone I'm sure) for him to rack up another $2800 bill. Haiti anyone?

Denise said...

I am a first time poster. I also can't believe Jacob is 13 already. Time flies!

I've been reading that some people don't like him. In my own opinion I don't think he is that bad of a kid. I would like to see him be more controlled and be more thoughtful or appreciative. Perhaps he is and they just never show that. He appears to be unhappy most of the time when he's on camera. Hopefully he becomes more appreciative and a happier kid.

They are growing up. Happy birthday Jacob. I don't think he wants to be doing this show. Maybe his present will be ending the show?

Sorry but Jacob's birthday is January 21. Wikipedia is wrong.

"Sorry but Jacob's birthday is January 21. Wikipedia is wrong."

That is incorrect. IMDB has it wrong :-) We can confirm that today is indeed Jacob's birthday.

lucas said...

Happy birthday and a wish for unlimited texting for Jacob! Go for it buddy, your parents can afford it. (if they give you an argument about it just mention all the vehicles recently purchased and the extravagant celebrations given to your older brother/s. oh yeah, and tell them that people making a ton less than your parents, umm.... me, can add it for about 10 bucks a month)

Happy Birthday Jake!
Hopefully these coming years will mature him and stop the babyish actions. I hope he's not going to be a rebel but i can kinda see it happening...

Expressed said...

lpbw537, that's how I feel too.

lucas said...

Please keep in mind lpbw537 that there is a *huge* difference between 12 years going on 13, and 19 going on 20. Huge developmental milestones occur between 13 and 20. To call him babyish seems a little unfeeling to me. I'm a little sad he hasn't had better role models. gosh, at least he's not in the woods acting like a fool with his awesome buddies. That seems pretty "babyish" to me for an almost 20 year old.

M said...

Happy birthday Jacob!

Jim W said...

Lucas, why do people need to tip-toe around the truth, around what they see?

Ok, it's bad taste because it's the birthday thread, but I'd venture to guess this brat is not seeking out online forums in search of happy birthday wishes.

Stating that someone hopes he matures is a little harsh? Are you joking? That's putting it mildly. I judge on what I see and my impression from that. He's a Brat with a capital B and a Baby. Even my own teenage son who thinks Jeremy and friends are cool can't stand Jacob. The constant tears, the sulking, the running away in a tantrum, the always miserable expressions, the back talk...it all has gotten old. I'm glad he's not my son's friend because I wouldn't put up with his crap if he stayed over or went on a trip with us.

Tell it like it is. People don't need to pretend like Jacob is a well behaved pleasant kid to be around.

Stating one hopes he matures is being nice because if he doesn't mature soon even his friends are going to grow tired of his act.

Jim - I trust you won't mind when the same is said about Jeremy?

After all, we are talking about someone who won't set up and update a fan site once a month because he'd "rather be outdoors".

Or hey, maybe Jeremy at almost 20 could finally grow a set and apologize for his racist remarks? You remember, the ones he hid behind his daddy over? What about scratching up the new benz? Needing momma to pull him out of bed and take him to big boy college?

I trust you will applaud my "telling it like is" since I personally don't see the need to pretend Jeremy is a well behaved mature young man to be around.

Because I pretty strongly suspect - even though I have provided examples, that while its fair to "tell it like it is" over Jake... Poor widdle baby Jer-Bear mustn't hear a word of criticism! I know who the "man" is in that family, and its not the almost 20 year old who can't bear to hear one negative word...

Jim W said...

Rap, I don't really give a damn what you say about Jeremy. It doesn't affect me. Have at it. I will disagree and think your opinion is meaningless.

As a parent who has a teenage son and has watched the Roloffs for years, I would dread having Jacob around my son or my house. I would welcome Jeremy because he is personable and easy going.

Personally I don't care about Jeremy's remarks and whether he wants to address or not was up to him.

I ask myself would I want those kids around my kid and the answer is yes for Jeremy and no for Jacob.

You don't know the "Jer Bear" can't hear one word of criticism. I gather it's a segment of Jeremy's fans that don't like seeing him criticized. I don't care, but I think your criticisms are ridiculous. They don't hurt my feelings and more importantly it's other fans objecting. I don't see Jeremy crying tears over it.

In fact, *my* bet is Jeremy is probably laughing his ass off at all of us who talk about him on the internet while he shines his vintage BMW.

Rap541 said...

Which again.. isn't the nicest endorsement of Jeremy. You do realize "he doesn't give two craps what anyone thinks since he's getting rich" isn't exactly nice?

If Jeremy CAN bear criticism... they do his fans defend him?

JIm - do you give your kid a hug and say "Be like Jeremy, go call your friends f*ggotholes and all me your n-word when I do nice things for you"?

You would endorse your son referring to you being helpful as "Dad is sweet, just like a n*gger"? Yes? Brag to the pastor how your son learned that from Jer?

Come on JIm. Your kid. Is is just dandy for your son to call you his n-word?

lucas said...

Jim, I'm not sure how you interpreted my post as "tip-toeing" around the truth. Imo it's fairly common knowledge that 13 year olds act differently than 20 year olds. As a mom of teens myself, I feel bad that your kids don't have parents educated enough to nurture each at an appropriate age level.

Would you expect the same from a 13 year old as you would from a 6 year old? Your bravado is false and argumentative without reason.

Is that you Meuller?

lucas said...

Come on Rap. Jim calls his kids deragatory terms and they call him bad stuff back. Like father, like son. His ex wife must be thankin the high heavens she's outta there.

M said...

He might be looking at public forums but wishing a 13 year kid a happy birthday on here isn't the worst thing. :)

Craw said...

M, he's a brat. I've asked lots of times and never get an answer. What is there to like about him? Nothing! He is a spoiled brat. He never looks like he's in a good mood or appreciates anything.

If he wasn't on tv and I knew a kid like him I would call him a spoiled brat. Him being on tv isn't going to change my opinion,

He seems like the least religious of the kids too.

We all know Jeremy is very religious and loves Jesus. Molly does too. Zach is less vocal but Jacob I'd never guess he loves Jesus.

Craw said...

Spirits, can you interview Taylor and ask her what in the world she sees in BratBoy? He wouldn't have been popular at the school I went too when I was 13.

I was disgusted with the show about Jacob turning 12 and his father giving him an iphone. I couldn't believe how passive the parents were after the kid repeatedly broke the rules, ran up a $2700 bill, stole his sisters cell phone, and acted hateful when he was called on his behavior.
How can the parents not see they are creating a monster? Wake up, Your kid is out of control because you're too busy being actors instead of parents.

Has anyone else noticed the disintegration of the families on TLC as their show goes from season to season? The Gosslins would not be divorced today had it not been for their stardom brought on by the show and the younger Duggar children are profoundly different than their older siblings who were not raised in the spotlight. Once the cameras stop rolling and the lights are off, life won't go back to the way it was. What has proven to be an insurmountable challenge for many adults, will be catastrophic to a child whose identity was developed in front of the camera.

Jacob is such a spoiled brat. Watching him on the latest shows does not indicate any maturing on his part. I am aware many 13 year olds are self centered but this kid goes way beyond that and it is just painful to watch him and how he acts.
