Kate Gosselin is an author and television personality from the United States. Kate Gosselin rose to fame after starring in Jon & Kate Plus, a reality television show in which she and Jon reared their unusual family of sextuplets and twins.

Childhood and Early Years

Kate Gosselin is a 46-year-old American television personality who was born on March 28, 1975, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Katie Irene Kreider is her full name. Kenton Kreider is her father’s name, and Charlene Kreider is her mother’s name. Kendra, Christen, and Clairissa Kreider are her three sisters, while Kevin Kreider is her brother.

Her religion is unknown, and she was born under the sign of Aries. She also earned her nursing diploma from Reading Hospital and Medical Center in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Marriage and Personal Life

Kate Gosselin is divorced from Jon Gosselin and is single. They met during a picnic in 1997 while she was working in a hospital. They married on June 12, 1999, after dating for two years. They then discovered she had PCOS, which prevented her from becoming pregnant.

She gave birth to twins Cara and Madelyn after the procedure. In 2004, she was again blessed with sextuplets, this time with Alexis, Leah, and Hannah as daughters and Joel, Collin, and Aaden as sons. However, one of the seven children did not survive.


On the June 22, 2009, episode of the reality show, she and her husband Jon announced their separation. Nonetheless, on the day the documentary aired, the couple met with Pennsylvania attorneys to discuss ending their plans for divorce rather than separation. The couple also stated that their eight children will remain in their Pennsylvania home and that they will go back and forth to help with the custody arrangement.

The duo indicated in separate interviews that the show would continue. TLC, on the other hand, declared on June 23, 2009 that the show would be canceled immediately. They had shifted the focus away from the family to make a change in the dynamic, as well as the production issues that had arisen because they were no longer living together, according to TLC.

After a verbal altercation on August 13, 2009, the two had to summon the cops to the Gosselin family’s house in Wernersville, Pennsylvania. She arrived to the house during her husband’s scheduled time with their children, and her presence was not an endorsement of the babysitter he was employing. However, no charges were filed against either party, and no arrests were made.

The pair, though, is now divorced. On December 18, 2009, their divorce was completed. Kate denies dating Jeff Prescott and Steve Neild, according to rumors. She was also given primary custody of the children and ownership of the family home.

She has a contentious relationship with her ex-husband, which has frequently made news, as of November 2016. Her ex-husband plans to take her to court for shared physical and legal custody of the children, and the two are once again fighting for custody. She, on the other hand, has full custody of the twins and sextuplets, while he is only allowed visits.

Career and Professional Life

In Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, Kate worked as a labor and delivery nurse. After giving birth to sextuplets, they caught the attention of the media and were approached by NBC TV Network to star in a reality show called “Home Delivery” in 2004.

Later, in 2005, they were featured in the Discovery Communication-sponsored one-hour show “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins: One Year Later,” which aired on the Discovery Health channel. They were then featured in the Jon & Kate Plus 8 / Kate Plus reality series from 2007 to 2017. She filmed a discussion program with Paula Deen in 2009, but the television network did not take it up.

Then, in 2010, she appeared in the tenth season of Dancing with the Stars as a contestant. She was strongly chastised for her dancing and was eliminated in the fifth round of the competition. The next year, she was given her own show, Twist of Kate.

The family was then featured on Celebrity Wife Swap in 2013, where she took over for Kendra Wilkinson for one episode. They were also featured in the two-hour special Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10 in 2014, as well as in the competitive reality series The Apprentice that same year (U.S. season 14).

She has published works such as Multiple Blessing in 2008. The book debuted at number five on The New York Times Best Sellers list, selling over 500,000 copies in its first week. Her second novel, Eight Little Faces, was published the following year and was also a New York Times Best Seller. She released her third book, I Just Want You to Know, in 2010 and Love is in the Mix in 2013, after a successful career as a novelist.

2014 to the present

On March 19, 2014, it was announced that she and her eight co-stars would return in a June reunion special.

On January 13, 2015, she returned to TLC’s Kate Plus 8 for a second season. Season 5 began on TLC on November 22, 2016, and season 6 (with only three episodes) premiered on July 10, 2017. During Season 6, Jon and Kate had a custody struggle over two of their eight children, Collin and Hannah. As a result, they decided to discontinue filming the show.

TLC announced in May 2019 that Kate Plus 8 would return after almost two years with a new dating show called Kate Plus Date, which premiered on TLC on June 10, 2019.

As a Writer

Kate Gosselin has written three non-fiction books in addition to being a reality star. Multiple Blessings, a co-written book with Jon Gosselin and Beth Carson, was released in November 2008. By the end of 2009, it had reached number five on The New York Times Best Sellers list and had sold over 500,000 copies.

Her second book, Eight Little Faces, was written in the same way. It was first published in April 2009 and reached number five on The New York Times Best Sellers list. On April 13, 2010, she released her third book, “I Just Want You To Know.” In its first week, this book sold over 10,000 copies and reached number 103 on The New York Times Best Sellers list.


Despite her celebrity, she has yet to win any of the accolades and nominations she has received. Her hard work and determination, however, may still help her win more accolades in the near future.


Kate got embroiled in controversy after accusing her ex-husband Jon of being a drug dealer and having an inappropriate contact with daughter Hannah three times in five days. Then Jon retorted that Kate will go to any length to get what she wants, including lying to the police.

Other controversies surround Kate, including the fact that most of the story regarding Gosselin’s book is based on Bobbi McCaughey’s. She was alleged to have undergone breast augmentation surgery. Furthermore, she was thought to be having an affair with married bodyguard Steve Neild, which TLC tried to hide.
