The Gosselin Sextuplets Are Older Than You Think

After finding fame on reality TV, where they warmed viewers' hearts all over the world, Jon and Kate Gosselin's family spectacularly fell apart. In 2020, Jon confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, "I don't hear from Kate. It's just totally like that person doesn't exist anymore." 

She has custody of four of their sextuplets, Aaden, Joel, Alexis, and Leah, while the other two, Collin and Hannah, live with their father. The former couple's eldest kids, Cara and Madelyn, are at college. Sadly, this means that none of them see much of each other. 

"I wish that all my kids would just be together, hang out together, go to the mall. Just hang out together," Jon admitted. "Kate and I don't live that far away from each other, but I feel like there is an invisible wall. ... I have no qualms about it. If they want to go meet each other, go ahead. I feel like it's more on the other side." 

The Gosselins have stayed mostly out of the limelight since their hit show, "Jon & Kate Plus 8," was canceled.

While chatting to ET, Hannah confirmed she wanted to live with her father, arguing the two have always had a closer relationship than she does with her mom. However, they are still in regular contact. Hannah also speaks to her siblings, too, noting everybody is "doing well." 

The Gosselin kids are all grown up and cuter than ever — and, now, they're celebrating a major birthday milestone.

The former reality stars are all (shockingly) 18 years old

Time flies when you've spent much of it on television. Former reality stars Jon and Kate Gosselin are celebrating the bumper 18th birthday of their adorable sextuplets, which should make anyone who can remember them as tiny tots on "Jon & Kate Plus 8" feel incredibly old. 

Per E! News, proud dad Jon posted a sweet message to his Instagram Stories, writing alongside a throwback shot of the six youngest kids — Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis, Hannah, and Leah — when they were still small enough to round up, "Happy 18th birthday! Today is your birthday we gonna say it loud. I love you, Love Dad."

The Gosselins also share twins Cara and Madelyn, who are now 21. Their sextuplets were born in 2004, and the former couple's hit reality show debuted in 2007. Jon and Kate ultimately divorced in 2009, following the cancellation of "Jon & Kate Plus 8." 

Hannah shared with Entertainment Tonight that she celebrated becoming an adult at The Sugar Factory in Miami, alongside her four closest friends. The birthday girl arrived to the bash in style, with proud papa Jon, in a white Phantom Rolls-Royce. "It was amazing, I was so astonished by, like, I really didn't think it was gonna be that big and I was so excited," she gushed.

Hannah confirmed she'd received a standard birthday text from her mother, while the rest of the sextuplets notably wished each other happy birthday on the day, too.
