Happy birthday to the Gosselin sextuplets!
Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel were born on May 10, 2004 in Pennsylvania and joined their older sisters, twins Cara and Maddy.
Kate conceived the children via in-vitro, and they were born premature and spent time in the hospital before returning home.
The Gosselin children appeared on television for the first time on the Discovery channel special Surviving Sextuplets and Twins in 2005 and became reality stars with their parents on TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8.
Their every movement was filmed for years, showing the children growing up, traveling, and all the ups and downs of a family with eight children.
However, their parents’ very nasty public divorce after their father Jon was caught cheating on their mother caused him to be ousted from the show, and it was renamed Kate Plus 8, before being pulled off the air in 2011.
The sextuplets have celebrated many birthdays on camera, but this year they’re just celebrating at home.
Happy birthday to the adorable little Gosselin kids!
