The show chronicled the lives of Jon and his now ex-wife Kate, as they navigated life with twins and newborn sextuplets. Jon and Kate married in 1999 and welcomed daughters, Cara Nicole and Madelyn “Mady” Kate in 2000. They then got the surprise of their lives when they welcomed sextuplets in 2004.
Following the reality series Jon and Kate split up and their lives became fodder for the tabloids as they had a difficult relationship and custody issues. Jon has since gone on reside in Pennsylvania where he is reportedly in a relationship with a registered nurse named Colleen Conrad.
Jon has spoken out about his relationship with his children with all his children, including Hannah and Collin, who now live with their dad.
“Hannah lives with me full time, and then Collin. Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden, they’re with their mom, and then the twins are 18, so they’re adults,” he said in an interview during Real Love: Relationship Reality TV’s Past, Present & Future event. “The other four aren’t talking to me, but they’re talking to Hannah,” he added. “It’s what the kids want to do. If they don’t want to talk to me, that’s fine, as long as they keep up with their sibling connections.”
Happy Birthday to all six of the Gosslein children.
