Kate Gosselin Biography

Kate Gosselin was born Kate Irene Kreider on March 28, 1975 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She attended school at the Reading Hospital and Medical Center, where she earned her nursing degree, and became a registered nurse.

In 1997, Kate Kreider met John Gosselin at a picnic. The pair clicked, and they were married two years later. Gosselin, who knew she was unable to conceive due to polycystic ovary syndrome, began fertility treatments soon after she and Jon wed. She underwent intrauterine insemination, which resulted in the birth of her twin daughters, Cara and Madelyn, in October 2000.

Gosselin and Jon began fertility treatments once again in 2003, hoping to add a third child to their family. To the couple's surprise, Gosselin became pregnant with sextuplets. In the spring of 2004, Kate gave birth to her six younger children, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel.

Gosselin and her family were introduced to television audiences through the Discovery Health Channel special, "Surviving Sextuplets and Twins," in September 2005. The viewing public showed much interest in the family and as a result, Discovery Health invited them back for a second special, "Sextuplets and Twins: One Year Later." The specials produced such high ratings that the production company signed a deal with Gosselin and her husband, Jon, to star in a new reality show, "Jon and Kate Plus 8." The program premiered in 2007, documenting the lives of the young couple and their eight children. The show ran for five seasons, the first two on Discovery Health and the final three on TLC.

"Jon and Kate Plus 8" was immensely popular, but the success and spotlight took a toll on Gosselin's marriage. She and husband Jon publicly announced their separation on the show in the summer of 2009. The title of the show was changed to "Kate Plus 8," and Jon no longer appeared frequently on the program.

Gosselin is the author of four non-fiction books. Her first book, written with Jon Gosselin and Beth Carson, was published in November 2008, titled "Multiple Blessings." It debuted at No. 5 on the New York Times Bestseller list, and sold over 500,000 copies by the end of 2009. Her second book, "Eight Little Faces," was released in April 2009, and also debuted at No. 5 on the New York Times Bestseller list. Her third book, titled "I Just Want You To Know" was released on April 13, 2010. She most recently released "Love Is in the Mix" in September 2013, where she shares the Gosselin family's favorite recipes for every day and entertaining.
