The Gosselin family came into the limelight after Jon and his ex-wife, Kate, went on to have a reality show called “Jon and Kate Plus 8.”
HOW THE GOSSELIN FAMILY ROSE TO FAME
When Jon and Kate got married after two years of dating in 1999, little did they know that they would have their reality show.
A year after they tied the knot, the couple welcomed their twin daughters, Cara and Madelyn. Jon was unsure if they should try for more children, but he eventually agreed to try for a third child.
The couple was not prepared for what fate had in store for them--when they got pregnant for the second time, they were surprised to discover that they were going to have sextuplets.
Luckily, Kate was able to safely deliver all six of her babies, who were 10 weeks premature. The big family was featured on Discovery Health special “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins” in September 2005.
Later on, the Gosselins went on to star on the reality show “Jon and Kate Plus 8.”
THEN CAME THE SEPARATION
Unfortunately, Jon and Kate’s marriage could not last and they ended up having a heated divorce in 2009.
However, the couple still makes the headlines after their show ended due to their regular custody battles.
Since 2018, the couple only communicates through their attorneys. Jon is currently in a relationship with Colleen Conrad, his longtime girlfriend.
