Remember Jon & Kate Plus 8? Their Sextuplets Have Just Turned 16 And Here’s Everything You Need To Know About This Family Made Famous By TLC

Here’s a blast from the past for you! Remember the hit TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8?

Well, their sextuplets have all just turned 16, and here’s everything you need to know about this family made famous by TLC.

The reality TV show premiered back on April 4th, 2007, and it quickly became one of the highest-rated shows to ever appear on the network.

Everyone got a front-row seat to the insanity that was Jon and Kate Gosselin’s life…raising sextuplets Alexis, Collin, Joel, Hannah, Leah, and Aaden, along with their two older twin girls Mady and Cara.

The show really had no shortage of drama, and Jon and Kate really fought frequently on-air over how they should be raising all of their children.

In 2009, Kate divorced Jon after rumors that he cheated on her with a teacher broke. Not long after that, Jon said he was done with TV and didn’t want his kids on the show.

So, Kate continued, with all eight of the children, and the show was renamed Kate Plus 8. Kate and Jon continued to fight over custody, and Jon went on to have a whole bunch of different relationships.
