Kate Gosselin and her brood celebrated the 8th birthday of her sextuplets on Thursday. The family had a low-key day at home, swimming and enjoying time together. The children opened presents and ate cake, and according to their mom, they had a great day.
Kate wrote a blog post on her website about this big birthday. It seems as though each year that passes, Kate realizes just how lucky she and her ex-husband, Jon, really are. They have eight happy, healthy, beautiful children. Not every parent is fortunate enough to have healthy multiples… nevermind two sets of healthy multiples.
As Leah, Hannah, Alexis, Collin, Aaden, and Joel turn 8, fans of Kate Gosselin and her former reality show think back to where it all beganÂ—seeing the footage of Kate in the hospital and of the babies once they were born. However, those memories don’t hit anyone harder than they do Kate and Jon. It was such an amazing yet difficult time for them, but they made it through. They now have eight (including twins, Cara and Mady) wonderful faces to be proud of each and every day.
