They may need six birthday cakes at a certain Pennsylvania home today, as the Gosselin sextuplets celebrate Birthday No. 6.
Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel turned six on Monday, and reportedly had separate parties with their divorced mom and dad. On her TLC blog, mom Kate Gosselin said the day brings a rush of bittersweet memories.
"To make my sadness worse, their birthday falls on the same day of the week that they were born -- a Monday!" she wrote. "And also, like the year they were born, it's the day after Mother’s Day! I barely have to start thinking about that day and, yep, hold on, I have to grab a tissue. I gotta catch these tears before they smear my eye makeup!"
Kate Gosselin last year went through a high-profile and bitter divorce with Jon Gosselin, who starred with her and their brood on TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8." After their split, Jon Gosselin made news by dating a string of women while Kate prepared for reality TV life as a single mom. Her new show, "Kate Plus 8," will show her traveling around the country with the kids in tow and interacting with fans.
Another show, "Twist of Kate," is scheduled to air in the fall. On it, Kate Gosselin will offer advice on life and being a mom.
