It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since Jon and Kate Gosselin, stars ofÂ Jon & Kate Plus 8, called it quits on their marriage. A lot has changed in the past 12 months. For Kate Gosselin at least. She went on to star in her own reality spin-off show,Â TLC‘sÂ Kate plus 8, competed onÂ ABC‘sÂ Dancing With the Stars, released a couple bestselling books, and has another reality TV project in the works: Twist of Kate (also onÂ TLC). While the couple moves beyond their divorce, how are their eight children coping with the changes? Keep reading for more details on how the twins and sextuplets have adjusted to their new life…
It’s been a crazy year forÂ Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars, Jon and Kate Gosselin. After ten years of marriage, the couple went their separate ways in June of 2009. Kate Gosselin kept custody of their eight children–twins Cara and Mady, and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Collin, and Joel–although Jon still has visitation. When the couple first decided to get divorced, they knew it would be hard on their young children.
During an initial statement made after the divorce filing, Jon Gosselin said, “Our kids are still my number one priority. I love them and want to make sure they stay happy, healthy and safe.Â This will be a difficult transition for all of us.” TheÂ Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars have worked hard to keep their kids a priority and Kate Gosselin says they’ve adjusted just fine.
“They’re just amazing, resilient, loving kids,” Kate says, although she admits they all have their moments of difficulty.Â ”[Nine-year-old daughter Cara] was upset with me because I forgot to sign them up for something at school,” Kate told PEOPLE magazine. “I said, ‘Cara, I had a really rough year. This is a new year. You’ve got to give me that. Let’s start over.’ So I’ve really worked to keep my word with them.”
