We were first introduced to the Gosselin family on their TLC show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, in 2007. The series showed what it was like after Jon and Kate Gosselin gave birth to sextuplets on May 10, 2004, after already having twins.
The show ran for two years until the couple announced that they were filing for divorce. However, their loyal viewers still wanted to follow the family, and Kate was given a spin-off show, Kate Plus 8, which aired on and off until 2017. Fans were happy to be able to see what the kids are up to, but they also noticed that they were seeing less of Collin, one of the sextuplets. Here’s what was happening behind the scenes.
Collin is One of the Six Sextuplets
Kate gave birth to the sextuplets via Caesarean section at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center between 7:51 and 7:54 a.m. and Collin was the fourth baby to arrive.
One of three boys, Collin was the biggest child of the sextuplets when he was born, weighing 3 pounds 0.5 ounces and measured 15 inches. Like his brothers and sisters, Collin grew up with the cameras around, but he was more uncomfortable than his siblings about the camera crew.
