Matt, 60, was seen behind the wheels of a construction vehicle before heading out onto the fields to film their progress on the farm.
He panned the camera round a number of times to reveal a young child climbing up into the vehicle, as well as walking around outside.
Little People fans were immediately sent into a frenzy as they were certain Matt had leaked footage of his son Jacob’s baby boy.
Jacob, 25, welcomed son Mateo Tomas last year with wife Isabel Rock, and is yet to show his first child’s face on social media.

Taking to the comments of the video, one fan asked: “Is that Jacob’s son?” as a second explained that it was just “old video” footage.
“Old video. Jackson was just a toddler,” they said, confirming it was Tori and Zach Roloff’s son Jackson, five, in the clip.
A third agreed: “Aw, you’re missing the times with Jackson when he was little? Memories for a loving grandpa.”
It comes after Matt posted a rare full photo of Jacob and Isabel’s newborn son Mateo during their recent visit to the family farm.

The eight-month-old, who wore a gray onesie, planted his fingers on Matt’s cheek as they rode together on a construction vehicle.
The toddler appeared to be looking at the steering wheel of the construction vehicle as he faced away from the camera.
Matt said he was showing “the ropes” to his grandkid while getting ready for the upcoming pumpkin season.
The Roloff patriarch also shared a snapshot of his son Jacob as he was checking on the “newly replaced front axle seals.”
The musician tragically passed away on September 3rd, 2012, at the age of 25 when he fell off a freight train.
Jacob’s reunion with his father came after his brothers were unable to take over the Roloff family farm as their plans fell through.
Jacob’s brothers Jeremy and Zach, both 32, could not agree with the patriarch, who ultimately decided to put the 16-acre plot of the family’s famous farm up for sale in May.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Matt asked for about $4million with the sale of the “original family home and bright red barn.”
Both of his eldest sons were angered by their father’s decision, especially since they wanted to keep the property within the family.
Zach slammed the sale and called out his father for being a “bad grandparent” who does not “value his family.”
