Jon & Kate Plus 8: How The Gosselin Kids Are Doing One Year After Parents’ Divorce

May 30, 2010 07:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since Jon and Kate Gosselin, stars of 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, TLC‘s Kate plus 8, competed on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, released a couple bestselling books, and has another reality TV project in the works: Twist of Kate (also on 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 for 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. This will be a difficult transition for all of us.” The 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. ”[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.”

New episodes of Kate plus 8 begin airing on June 6th on TLC.
