Like it or not, Kate Gosselin has been a part of our lives for more than seven years. Now, the TLC show returns after a three-year hiatus and it’s kicking off with a major milestone: The sextuplets are turning 10!
Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel officially hit double digits on May 10 and, of course, cameras were there to capture the whole thing. They also got plenty of clips of mama Kate laying down the law for her big brood — not an easy feat, as she readily admits.
“I’m getting older, tireder, more worn out,” she tells cameras. “The kids are getting older and smarter.”
You know what that means: drama. Kate’s got two teenagers, 13-year-old twins Cara and Mady, on her hands not to mention her six other not-so-little ones. And when the going gets tough, Mama K gets tougher. A preview of the family’s upcoming two-part TLC special gives just a hint at what kind of trouble’s a-brewin’ and it’s not pretty.
