Jon and Kate Gosselin welcomed their sextuplets into the world on May 10, 2004, and since then, the entire family has become TV stars thanks to their multiple reality shows, starting with Jon and Kate Plus 8, which premiered in 2007.
Kate and Jon Gosselin’s sextuplets are 19. The reality stars each shared a birthday message on Instagram for their kids: Hannah, Collin, Leah, Joel, Alexis, and Aaden. The exes also share twin daughters, Cara and Madelyn, 20.
They were married on June 12, 1999, and on October 8, 2000, she gave birth to twin girls, Cara Nicole and Madelyn Mady, who were premature at 35 weeks of gestation. Gosselin became pregnant through ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ because ᴘᴏʟʏᴄʏsᴛɪᴄ ᴏᴠᴀʀʏ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ left her unable to ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇ otherwise.
On Jon & Kate Plus 8, Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin seemed like the perfect couple. But by 2009, 10 years into their marriage, they decided to call it quits. According to Kate, she and Jon started to want different things in their relationship. And infidelity rumors swirled around Jon at the time.
Once an extremely rare phenomenon, ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛs have made multiple births slightly more common today. But ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠɪɴɢ sextuplets without the use of ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛs is extremely rare. In fact, the odds of giving birth to sextuplets spontaneously are one in 4.7 billion.
Jon and Kate Gosselin, who already had twins, wanted just one more baby. After undergoing I.V.F to ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇ a third child, Kate became pregnant with six babies. The Gosselin sextuplets, three boys and three girls, were born on May 10, 2004, in Pennsylvania. The average birthweight of a sextuplet is about 2 1/2 pounds, and nearly all sextuplets require medical care in a hospital N.I.C.U for several weeks to months after birth. Joel, Collin, Aaden, Alexis, Hannah, and Leah joined then-3-year-old twin sisters, Cara and Madelyn Mady.
