Yes, Kate Gosselin really is a sucker for being a mom.
The reality TV mama showed off her sexy summer figure (and goofy side) Thursday in these sometimes funny photos obtained by RadarOnline.com, which show the mother-of-eight taking a few of her kids to New York City landmarks Ellis Island and Liberty Island, where the Statue of Liberty resides.
The toned and tan TLC star enjoyed the sunny day (and a few lollipops) as she navigated her children through the Big Apple. Kate's spent a few days this week in the city that never sleeps, having taken in a Lady Gaga concert at Madison Square Garden Wednesday.
A few paces behind, as always, was Kate's trusty bodyguard Steve Neild.
