It all kicked off when Matt shared a rare photo meeting Mateo as he sat with the newborn in his arms while smiling.
He captioned it: “Got to hang out with this little dream boat today. He looks like a bear.. but his name is Mateo. A big nod to his grandpa.”
Isabel responded: “He loves his grandpa!!”
While most fans also praised the snap, others reached out to Matt and wondered if Jacob and Isabel will ever show their child’s face.
One person said: “I’m really sad that we don’t get to see Mateo, followed all through the pregnancy and ever since Little People started the show.

“It sure is upsetting not to finally get to see him.”
Matt, 60, agreed and responded: “I know. I’ve tried to present some ideas but Jacob and Izzy are very smart and they know what they want for the little guy and I respect that.
“But he’s so cute. I definitely want everyone to see him one day.”
There did come a time when Matt and his youngest son were not on the best of terms.
An insider once explained to Radar: “They don’t have the best relationship.
“I think when his parents divorced he put a lot of the blame on his dad. His mom was hurting for a long time, and he believes Matt was the sole cause of that — like his dad is the one that blew up the whole family.”
Matt and his then-wife Amy, 57, tied the knot in 1986 before parting ways in 2016.
Aside from Jacob, they also share sons Jeremy and Zach, both 31, and daughter Molly, 28.
Matt and Jacob would eventually reunite after their years-long feud.
KEEPING IT PRIVATE
Jacob, 24, and Isabel, 25, have been very clear in wanting to keep their first child’s identity private, however that has not stopped fans from chiming in.
Previously, Isabel posted a photo of her newborn son on social media experiencing his first snow.
The little one was held up to the outdoors in an adorable teddy bear onesie, although his face was concealed as Isabel held him so the back of his head was facing the camera.
One troll soon commented: “Just turn him around, what’s the problem?”
Jacob was quick to defend his wife’s decision as he clapped back: “You.”
While Mateo’s face has been kept private, Isabel has been open about the day he was welcomed into the world.
She revealed in her post that his birth didn’t go according to plan, writing: “Our birth story didn’t go as planned; as we know life rarely ever does.
“These past few weeks have show me what true surrender and trust looks like. I have never been more hands on my knees afraid and I have also never known… a love so big.
“Seeing Jacob as a father is the most heartwarming thing I have ever witnessed. Being a mother is the most myself I have ever felt.”
The LPBW alum has also been open about her post-birth journey, recently showing off her stretch marks.
