How Old Are Jon and Kate Gosselin’s 8 Children From ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’ Now?

When Jon and Kate Gosselin first stepped on to the reality TV scene over a decade ago, fans loved watching the couple navigate life with their eight kids. Jon & Kate Plus 8 brought freshness to TLC, and the eight Gosselin kids were all extremely young at the time. Now, plenty of time has passed, though — and we can’t believe everything that the Gosselins have gone through in the public eye over the years.

From divorce to difficult family matters, Jon and Kate have left their mark on TV forever. But where are their kids now, and how old are they? Find out here.

Mady and Cara, the twins, are 18

It’s hard to imagine that the older siblings, Mady and Cara, were just around 6 years old when Jon & Kate Plus 8 first aired. Nowadays, the twins are 18 years old and seemingly thriving now that they’re out of the public eye. Their birthday is on Oct. 8, and Kate posted a sweet photo of them on the day they officially became adults. And in another post, Kate explained how proud she was of her twin daughters. “There are no words to describe how proud I am of you both. Despite the many turbulent times you’ve had to deal with so far in life, you have emerged as wise, level headed, reasonable, forgiving, loving, kind and absolutely brilliant ADULTS!” Kate wrote.

Jon also posted a happy birthday note to Mady and Cara on his Instagram — but there was no photo to be found. That’s most likely because the twins have stated before that they want nothing to do with their father. Back in August 2016, Mady and Cara both spoke candidly about their lack of contact with Jon, People reports. As Mady said, “He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen.”

The sextuplets are 14 years old

The sextuplets — Leah, Collin, Joel, Alexis, Hannah, and Aaden — were just toddlers when the show first started. Today, they’re 14 years old, and their birthday is on May 10. Kate wrote another heartfelt Instagram post for all six of her kids’ birthdays, too, just like she did for Cara and Mady. “14 years ago almost to the minute, I was in my wheelchair, making my way around the ENTIRE NICU, meeting each of you face to face for the very first time,” she wrote. “Here’s to many more birthdays together!! I love you forever and always, no matter what!”

We haven’t seen photos of all the sextuplets together, though, which may have struck some fans as odd. While Kate posted this adorable photo of her kids on their first day of school back in August 2018, it’s clear Collin and Hannah were missing. And that’s because it currently appears that they’re not on good terms with their mother.

Which children live with Kate, and who lives with Jon?

Not only have we heard of Jon and Kate’s marital strife through the years, but we also know there have been deep family divisions as a result of the split. People reports Hannah has chosen to permanently live with Jon for months now, and we see the father-daughter duo together on his Instagram all the time. More recently, Jon also got custody of Collin after Kate failed to show up to court. But late in 2018, Jon admitted that he still doesn’t talk to Mady and Cara, and the other four sextuplets aren’t speaking to him, either, Today reports. And he said the last time he got together with all of the kids, “It was just volatile and a lot going on.”

As for Kate, we haven’t heard many updates on the children from her lately, but it seems six of them are still living with her. Jon has also mentioned that they don’t communicate at all, and more recently on Instagram, he mentioned that she has had “zero” contact with Collin.

How Old Are The Gosselin Sextuplets Now? They’re Growing Up So Fast

Being a celebrity kid may get you some advantages in life, but one thing it won’t get you out of is school. Even the most well-known of kiddos are getting ready to head back to the classroom, and you may be wondering which of them are at a similar stage to your own kids. For example, how old are the Gosselin sextuplets now and where does that place them in their school careers?

It’s been just a few months since the sextuplets’ birthday on May 10, and in 2019, they turned 15 years old, according to a post by their mom Kate Gosselin on Instagram. “Our big celebration of #15 is finally winding down here! We celebrated ALL DAY LONG, beginning with a present at 6:30 am before school!” Kate captioned a photo of Alexis, Aaden, Joel, and Leah.

Not to be outdone, her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, also posted birthday wishes to his kids on Instagram. Alongside a photo of himself with Hannah and Collin, he wrote: “Happy 15th Birthday Hannah, Collin, Alexis, Aaden, Joel and Leah!!!! Wow I can’t believe you are 15!!! Time is flying by!!! I love you all very much. I wish you the best day ever and I hope you enjoy your birthday celebrations today and this weekend!!! Love always, Dad.”

The Gosselins’ two oldest daughters are entering their first year of college, according to People, and the sextuplets are going into ninth grade. It’s hard to believe they’ve come so far since they were made famous as six little swaddled bundles.

Collin and Hannah reportedly live with their dad, according to Heavy, a situation that arose after Collin returned home from a school for special needs children. Meanwhile, the rest of the sextuplets and the former couple’s 18-year-old twins live with Kate, as E! News reported. It seems that the two children who live with Jon are the only ones he currently has a relationship with, as he told E! News: “The other four aren’t talking to me, but they’re talking to Hannah. It’s what the kids want to do. If they don’t want to talk to me, that’s fine, as long as they keep up with their sibling connections.”

Back in December, Jon told Entertainment Tonight that while he’s estranged from his oldest daughters, he hopes to reconcile. “I hope my relationship with Mady and Cara will get better but they’re adults now, so that just kind of hinges on them and I kind of, you know, being estranged from them, I’ve kind of learned to live with it,” he told the news outlet last year. “But it’s really up to them to decide what they want to do with that… I kind of left it in their court now since it’s been so long. I mean, it is kind of heartbreaking and I do miss them, but everyone grows and matures and understands things… I tried really hard to develop something with them and only time will tell, I guess.”

Hopefully those relationships will work themselves out in time, but for now everyone is focused on the task at hand: getting back to school — as high-schoolers this time. And over the next few months, hopefully fans will get a few new photos and updates of the whole Gosselin squad as freshmen.

Kate Gosselin’s kids are all grown up. Gosselin and her ex-husband Jon Gosselin are the parents of eight kids — sextuplets and twins. Over the years, the world has gotten an opportunity to be a part of the Gosselin family and has watched these children grow, year after year.

The Gosselin family landed a reality television show with TLC when their kids were still babies. The first episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8 aired on April 10, 2007. At the time, the Gosselins had two six-year-olds and six two-year-olds. Now, the Gosselins have two 18-year-olds and six 15-year-olds.

Here’s what you need to know:

Cara Nicole and Madelyn “Mady” Kate were born on October 8, 2000.

The teens recently celebrated their 18th birthdays and will both be heading off to college in the fall.

“I’m still beaming with pride! It’s hard to believe that Cara and Mady graduated from high school this past weekend … and are headed off to college in the fall! Where did the time go???? Their Graduation day was such a wonderful day of celebrating THEM and all of their amazing accomplishments! These girls are going places and I can’t wait to see where they end up! Cara and Mady, I love you so very much and I’m just so so proud of YOU,” Kate captioned an Instagram pic with her two oldest kids back in May.

Cara and Mady are both a part of their mom’s new reality show, Kate Plus Date. The girls seem excited for their mom to start dating and prove to be huge supporters of her as she ventures into new territory.

It’s hard to believe that the Gosselin sextuplets will be heading off to high school later this year. Hannah, Collin, Leah, Alexis, Aaden, and Joel celebrated their 15th birthday in May.

“I’m so very thankful for my ‘babies’…. somehow they are 15 already?! I’m amazed by them each day! I’m so proud of the positive qualities I’ve seen developing as they edge closer to adulthood,” Kate captioned a photo of four of her six standing around a birthday cake.

“It hasn’t been easy for them, especially over the last year and a half, but they continue to persevere, stay positive and make lemonade out of lemons (to the point where I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to lemons, but what’s a mom to do?!) but no matter what, these kids keep on keeping on! Such good, wholesome, loving, insightful, wise humans and I’m just so proud to call them mine! I love you guys to the moon and back a hundred billion times x infinity! Happy 15th birthday!” Kate added.

The sextuplets — all except Collin (you’ll find out why in Fact 4) — have been a part of TLC’s Kate Plus 8 over the past few years. However, the youngest Gosselin kids have not been on Kate Plus Date.

3. Collin & Hannah Live With Jon Gosselin

Two of the Gosselin’s eight kids live with their dad, Jon. He was awarded custody of Collin, who recently came home after spending the past few years in a program for children with special needs, in December 2018. The family decided that it would be easier for Collin to transition into a quieter atmosphere.

“It was just easier for the transition. So it’d be easier for one parent to just transition him home, and he wanted to live with me, so it was easier to do it that way. I’m excited to have a male around. I’m surrounded by females,” Jon Gosselin told reporters at a WE tv event last year.

According to Us Weekly, Collin’s sister Hannah also lives with Jon on a full-time basis. As for the other four kids, their relationships with Jon seem estranged, at best.

“The other four aren’t talking to me, but they’re talking to Hannah. It’s what the kids want to do. If they don’t want to talk to me, that’s fine, as long as they keep up with their sibling connections,” Jon told E! News in December.

4. Collin Was Sent to Boarding School for Special Needs

Over the past several years, Collin Gosselin lived away from his family. A decision was made to send him to a boarding school that had a program for kids with “special needs.”

Kate Gosselin hasn’t opened up about what Collin was struggling with and has simply maintained that the program was the best solution for her son.

“Collin has special needs,” Kate previously told People Magazine. “ a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we’ve had for a very long time, and it’s one I’ve dealt with on my own. I’ve felt very alone in this. By the same token, it’s not something that has only impacted me or him – our entire family has been impacted,” she added.

Collin appears to be doing great and looks happy in the photos that his dad regularly posts on Instagram.

5. Their Parents Got Divorced in 2009

Jon and Kate had been together for a decade and even filmed their vow renewal ceremony (which took place in Hawaii) for their reality show.

Many people fell in love with the Gosselin family and enjoyed watching the children week after week on TLC. When Jon and Kate Gosselin announced their decision to divorce, it was surprising and very sad, to say the least.

It was Kate who filed papers in June 2009.

“Over the course of this weekend, Jon’s activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children. While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children,” she said in a statement at the time.

Over the past 10 years, things between Jon and Kate have been challenging. The two have not seen eye-to-eye on most things and haven’t found the best way to co-parent their brood.

Kate Gosselin Is About to Only Have 4 of Her 8 Kids Living With Her

Kate Gosselin may still have a presence on television with her dating show, Kate Plus Date, but we can’t forget how the famous mother attained fame over a decade ago. Jon & Kate Plus 8 was the hit reality show that featured Jon and Kate Gosselin taking care of their sets of twins and sextuplets. Unfortunately, their relationship devolved quickly and ended in a dramatic divorce. Today, they seemingly still can’t stand each other, and the family is more divided than ever.

Currently, two of the kids live with Jon while six of the kids live with Kate. But Kate’s about to lose two more of the kids in her household. Find out where the older twins, Mady and Cara, are headed next.

While most of Hannah Gosselin’s siblings live with Kate, she was the first to decide to live with her father full-time. Back in 2015, E! News reported that Jon was attempting to seek full custody of Hannah. As for why Jon was going for Hannah and not all of his kids at the time, a source told the publication, “Jon is filing for custody because Hannah has expressed she is unhappy and uncomfortable in the house with Kate .” The source added that while Jon would love for all of his kids to live with him, “he’s at least trying to help Hannah. Out of all the children, she’s the one voicing her discomfort.”

We’re still not sure if Jon actually has custody of Hannah or if Kate still does, but either way, Hannah officially has been living with Jon full-time for years. Distractify reports that a source told Life & Style that Kate was trying to be supportive of Hannah’s choice, but it was tough. “She hates that Hannah chose Jon over her,” the source claimed.

Collin now lives with Jon and Hannah, too

While Hannah’s situation flew under many peoples’ radars, Collin Gosselin’s ordeal seemed much more public. Kate talked about Collin as the difficult child of the family, and she admitted him to a facility for special needs to allegedly help the child deal with his anger issues. As she told People, “This has been a struggle we’ve had for a very long time, and it’s one I’ve dealt with on my own. I’ve felt very alone in this. By the same token, it’s not something that has only impacted me or him – our entire family has been impacted.”

At the end of 2018, however, Jon went for custody of Collin — and after Kate failed to show up to court, he won the case. And it seems Collin’s relationship with Kate since leaving the facility and living with Jon may be nonexistent. As a source told Radar Online, “Collin doesn’t want to see Kate, and so he has not. Kate has not tried reaching out since he left the facility.”

Mady and Cara are heading off to college soon

While Hannah and Collin are no longer living in Kate’s household, she’s about to lose two more kids, too. Mady and Cara are the older twins who have been featured helping Kate find the next love of her life on Jon & Kate Plus 8. Unfortunately for Kate, the twins are heading off to college in the fall.

“Mady and Cara really steered the ship in terms of applying to colleges; they knew what they wanted, and I trusted them,” Kate told People. “That same feeling is going to have to carry me through my fears now when I think about them going off on their own, fending for themselves, being alone for the first time.” Kate also mentioned that the twins will be attending different colleges. “Their ambitions are so different that they really felt, there’s not one college that would fully answer what each of them wanted,” the mom of eight added.

Kate’s extremely emotional about her older girls heading off to school — and we’re wondering if Mady and Cara will work to mend their relationship with Jon, too. Only time will tell.

Bonding with his kids! Jon Gosselin has been documenting his time with Hannah and Collin since his custody win.

The DJ’s daughter and son have lived with him since February 2018 and December 2018, respectively. Gosselin told DailyMailTV in September 2019 how much he fears for their siblings still with their mom, Kate Gosselin — twins Madelyn and Cara, as well as the rest of the sextuplets, Aaden, Leah, Alexis and Joel.

“I do know what she’s capable of, whether it’s mental or physical ,” the Jon and Kate Plus 8 alum said at the time. “I have two kids in my house who left a whole pile of money behind. They left fame and money and came to my house. They left it all behind.”

The former reality star added, “They have all said they have to film because they feel they need to provide a lifestyle for their mother. They don’t want to film. They said they have to film. That’s heartbreaking. Why do my kids need to provide for themselves? They’re kids.”

Prior to living with his dad, Collin spent three “inhumane” years at the Fairmont Behavioral Health Institute despite only being diagnosed with ADHD, according to Jon. The teenager allegedly had his roommate smuggle a letter to Jon begging the IT director to “save” him. Us Weekly reached out to Kate’s team for comment but did not receive a response.

Now that Collin is out of the institution and in high school with Hannah, he is a “really smart, really intuitive” honor roll student, Jon said.

The last time the Pennsylvania native was with all eight of his children, things became “volatile,” he told Us exclusively in December 2018.

“ aren’t talking to me, but they’re talking to Hannah,” Jon explained. “I don’t get involved now with what the kids … it’s what the kids want to do. If they don’t want to talk to me, that’s fine, as long as they keep up with their sibling connections. Eventually, if they come around and they want to talk to me, that’s cool.”

Jon and Kate Plus 8 debuted in 2007, but was renamed to Kate Plus 8 after the former couple’s 2009 split. They were married for a decade.

Keep scrolling to see how Jon has been spending time with Hannah and Collin since regaining custody of the siblings.

Kate Gosselin Posts Tribute to Her Twins amid Drama with Jon: ‘I Love These Kids Fiercely’

Kate Gosselin is proud of the people her children have grown to be.

The Kate Plus 8 star expressed her love for 18-year-old twin daughters Mady and Cara in a loving Instagram post on Thursday, when she praised her two eldest children as “wonderful amazing human beings.”

“I love these kids fiercely.. and I don’t apologize for my tears,” Kate, 44, began.

The mother of eight, who also has 15-year-old sextuplets Hannah, Collin, Alexis, Aaden, Joel and Leah with ex-husband Jon, admitted that “times have been so tough and so needlessly unfair for them.”

But, “despite it all, they’ve turned out to be such wonderful amazing human beings,” she continued.

“I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for each of them once they get away from those who have tried to destroy them versus protect them! #KatePlus8 @tlc,” she concluded.

One day prior, Kate shared a photo of the family’s dinner table, where they gathered for Mady and Cara’s “last dinner at home” before heading off to college.

“Table setting for last dinner at home … then off to college for Cara and Mady. How’d that happen SO fast?! 😥 So sad. So proud,” Kate wrote.

The touching posts come after Jon made a series of incendiary claims against Kate and their children in the media last month.

While Kate did not name the individuals she claimed “have tried to destroy” Mady and Cara, Jon’s relationship with his oldest daughters has long been fractured, though he annually wishes them a happy birthday via social media.

In August 2016, Mady and Cara told PEOPLE that they weren’t speaking to their father, who had given interviews about their strained relationship against their wishes.

“He makes it seem like we’re being kept from him, which is insane,” Mady said. “He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen.”

“He doesn’t even know us,” she added. “How can he dare to talk about us?”

Following Kate’s divorce from Jon in 2009 after 10 years of marriage, she received primary custody of the children after a lengthy custody battle.

Currently, Collin and Hannah live with Jon full-time. In December, Jon said he was not in communication with his other children.

“It’s what the kids want to do,” he said. “If they don’t want to talk to me, that’s fine, as long as they keep up with their sibling connections.”

Two down, six more to go! Mady and Cara Gosselin are the first of the Jon and Kate Plus 8 brood to head off to college. Now that the twins are 18 and on their own, fans have so many questions about their future plans. In honor of the twins’ new endeavor, TLC is hosting a “College Bound” special on Kate Plus 8, airing on Tuesday, October 1. Scroll to get the inside scoop on where Mady and Cara are getting their degrees.

Where do Cara and Mady Go to College?

The twins haven’t publicly stated which specific schools they are attending, but what we do know is that they are both stationed in NYC. According to mom Kate Gosselin, her girls knew exactly what they were looking for in a school and where they wanted to learn. “Mady and Cara really steered the ship in terms of applying to colleges; they knew what they wanted, and I trusted them,” the 44-year-old told People back in July. “That same feeling is going to have to carry me through my fears now when I think about them going off on their own, fending for themselves, being alone for the first time.” Although Kate was sad to see her daughters go, she said they were “so excited,” to go despite the great distance from their home in Pennsylvania. “It’s just too overwhelming to think in terms of ‘I’m not going to see them for so so long.’ You have to take it in increments.”

Why Didn’t They Go to the Same School?

Cara and Mady opted out of attending the same school, though they chose to stay nearby. This is the first time the girls will be going to different schools and will be totally on their own. “They agreed all along that they don’t want to go to the same school,” Kate said. “Their ambitions are so different that they really felt, there’s not one college that would fully answer what each of them wanted.” Mady also said on a sneak peek for the upcoming season of Kate Plus 8, that she does not want to stand out anymore. “College feels like a place to blend in. I feel like we haven’t really had much of a chance to really really blend in. I want to be just like somebody,” she said in a private interview. “I don’t want everyone to know my name and my business. So, I feel like a big college is the way we want to go.”

Before College, They Attended Lancaster Day School

The brunette beauties graduated from Lancaster Day School at the end of May. Kate took to Instagram to show her admiration for her girls. “I’m still beaming with pride! It’s hard to believe that Cara and Mady graduated from high school this past weekend … and are headed off to college in the fall! Where did the time go????” she captioned a photo of the girls dressed in white — a graduation day tradition. “Their Graduation day was such a wonderful day of celebrating THEM and all of their amazing accomplishments! These girls are going places and I can’t wait to see where they end up!”

They Toured Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina On the Upcoming Season of Kate Plus 8

Before settling on their respective universities, the trailer for the upcoming season for Kate Plus 8 shows the girls going through the college process and attended campus tours — just like the rest of us! The girls were seen walking the campus of Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina, but ultimately decided the big city was for them!

Mady Gosselin shared a college bestie pic ahead of Christmas. In that post, she talked about how she just wanted a normal life. Posting up pics about college life, she seems much happier away from home. And, it turns out that her desire for a normal life really doesn’t extend to being on Kate Gosselin’s reality TV shows.

Mady Gosselin caught up in the furor over Kate filming a show without permission

TV Shows Ace reported that much like other college kids, Mady’s just making friends and trying to get along with her own life. And, bear in mind, Jon Gosselin and Kate’s constant fights keep the girls in the media. With new friends at college and a new horizon, she need not always look over her shoulder over filming issues. Fans recall that Kate got hit with contempt of court for not getting permission from Jon to film the kids.

InTouch Weekly heard from a source that Mady and her mom get along okay. But, she wouldn’t “mind if her mom didn’t comment on her social media posts.” They note it’s because Mady just “wants her own identity.” Furthermore, Mady just “doesn’t want to be associated with the reality show and her parent’s drama.”

If the two adults would stop their incessant sniping, maybe normality could return and the kids may spend more time with their dad.

Collin and Hannah make up Jon Gosselin’s family these days

The division between Kate and Jon Gosselin extends to the kids. Naturally, with Jon denied custody of the kids, they grew up more inclined to hear Kate’s version of things. But, Jon got custody of his one son, Collin.

US Magazine reported how Collin, shipped off to an institution by Kate, begged his dad for help. In a letter smuggled out of the Institution, Mady’s little brother wrote, “I told Mom I want to live with you, she said no. But right? She can’t choose for me. I’m old enough now, I’m YOUR son, not hers. She was abusive to me… I’m sorry. Take this to court because … you’re my dad, my savior.”

Well, Jon got custody of Collin. And, his other daughter, Hannah opted to live with her dad as well. Recently, Jon Gosselin predicted that sooner or later, one of the kids will tell all about their life with Kate and on the reality TV shows, Jon and Kate Plus 8 and Kate Plus 8.

It seems that person might actually turn out to be Mady Gosselin. As she becomes more independent of her parents, perhaps one day, she’ll settle her feelings about the big mess once and for all.

Twins Cara and Mady Gosselin were just 6 years old when they made their reality TV debut alongside their sextuplet siblings in “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” but they’re not kids anymore.

The 18-year-old twins are now high school graduates — and their mom couldn’t be happier.

On Wednesday night, Kate Gosselin shared a belated post to honor the occasion on Instagram.

“This post is a little delayed (mostly due to post graduation exhaustion lol) but I’m still beaming with pride!” the 44-year-old reality star wrote alongside photos from the celebration. “It’s hard to believe that Cara and Mady graduated from high school this past weekend … and are headed off to college in the fall!”

Then Kate expressed a sentiment that fans of the family are sure to share: “Where did the time go????”

In one photo, the graduates — each dressed in white and holding a single red rose — smile alongside their happy mom, and in another, they sit before a pair of personalized cakes.

“Their Graduation day was such a wonderful day of celebrating THEM and all of their amazing accomplishments!” Kate continued. “These girls are going places and I can’t wait to see where they end up! Cara and Mady, I love you so very much and I’m just so so proud of YOU!”

And she’s not the only one.

Mady shared another photo from the day, taken in the halls of her high school. In it, two of her younger brothers, Aaden and Joel, pose alongside her.

“Big day,” she wrote in the caption. “(Featuring) some of my biggest supporters!”

The graduation ceremony was actually the second big day this month for the family.

On May 10, the sextuplets — Aaden, Collin, Joel, Hannah, Leah and Alexis — celebrated their 15th birthday.

To mark that day, Kate shared a photo of four of the teens, as well as a long and lovely message about how thankful she is for her “babies.”

The two birthday kids missing from that shot could be seen in one shared by Kate’s ex-husband, Jon, that same day.

Jon, who gained custody of Collin and Hannah last year, wrote sweet birthday wishes to the whole brood.

Fans can catch more from Kate and some members of their “Plus 8” on her upcoming TLC love-search series, “Kate Plus Date,” which is set to premiere June 10.
