Matt, 61, shared a close-up shot of the pair on an airplane in the post as they jetted off for a brief getaway.
He explained their plans in his caption: “Taking a short (4 day) break from the projects back in Oregon to grab a few days of sunshine down in AZ.”
Fans flooded the comments with well wishes for the couple, though one person questioned if anyone else was tagging along.
“Did you bring Chris with you?” the user asked, referencing Amy‘s husband, with a couple of laughing, crying emojis.
Matt laughed at the comment, replying: “Haha. Not this trip. But maybe next time. We are scheduled to have a phone call tomorrow to go over some fun projects we’re working on together.”
The Roloff patriarch has formed a close bond with his children’s stepfather, Chris, since the 59-year-old and Amy, 60, tied the knot on the family’s $4million Oregon farm in August 2021.
To many fans’ surprise, he even included Chris in his “guy’s night” last month, where they stayed in a cabin on the property.
“I bet Amy didn’t like it that much!” one viewer wrote in the comments of Matt’s Instagram post, showing their cozy space for the night.
But the LPBW star quickly clapped back: “No? Why not? It was her that I called to set it up. Amy’s a pretty secure and mature woman.”
“Actually it is disrespectful to Amy,” a second slammed, prompting the TLC star to respond: “Ah…you think so? That’s pretty bold.”
“I can tell it bothers Amy but she is just a good sport. So disrespectful to her,” a third claimed.
“So weird you hang out with Chris,” a fourth noted.
“I find it very strange that Chris wants to be friends after everything that went on,” a fifth agreed.
Matt’s bonding time with Chris came as he broke ground on his new home construction for the family farm.
Last month, the father of four updated fans with a progress photo of his brand-new farmhouse.
He shared on his Instagram feed a snap of stakes covering the land where the farmhouse will be built.
In the background sat the small wooden cabin, construction materials, and tree-covered mountains loomed in the distance.
Matt captioned his post: “After 5 years of planning… that first bit of rebar gets put down… it’s going to go up fast from here… hopefully.”
As the TV personality begins constructing his long-awaited new home, he has praised his son Jacob, 26, for his help.
In a previous Instagram post, the reality TV dad snapped his son hard at work building the family’s new home.
Wearing a pair of work overalls covered in dirt, Jacob kept his head down as he walked in front of a wood chopper.
“The Mill man at work… helping his Dad cut wood for the new house,” Matt captioned the photo.
Matt and Amy are also parents to Molly, 29, twin sons Jeremy and Zach, 32, though the latter is the only sibling who remains on the reality show.
