She’s gotten so big! TLC fans remember watching the Gosselin family’s journey, where Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin went from being parents of two to parents of eight when their sextuplets were born. Even though Jon & Kate Plus 8 was turned into Kate Plus 8 after Jon and Kate’s nasty 2009 divorce, fans haven’t been able to catch up with the Gosselin family since the Season 6 finale last year. But Kate took to her Instagram page to share a rare photo of one of her daughters, and fans can’t believe how big she’s gotten.
“Just a couple of my girls,” the 43-year-old wrote in the caption of a photo of Leah cuddling with one of the family’s dogs, Nanuq. Fans flooded the comments gushing Leah. “Leah is growing so fast as are her siblings I am sure,” one fan commented, while another wrote, “Leah is so cute. Love her smile.”
The last time fans got a glimpse of the kids on Kate’s Instagram page was back in April, which was one month before the sextuplets’ 14th birthday. Kate lined up her “little girls” Leah, Hannah, and Alexis.
But shortly after the sextuplets turned 14, it seemed like Leah has not gotten a chance to spend as much time with her sister, Hannah. Kate’s ex-husband Jon hinted in a cryptic Instagram post shared in May that he may have custody of Hannah and she’s been spending a lot of time with her dad in recent months — and she’s the only one of the rest of her siblings who has made frequent appearances on Jon’s social media.
Meanwhile, Kate hasn’t been very active on social media and that might be because she’s busy getting back onto the dating scene — and she’s also filming it for an upcoming show on TLC.
“If I’m going to date someone, I can’t just go out on a date — it’s creepy to me to think of just going out somewhere with some stranger, and so I actually feel like doing it like this is the best and safest way for me to go on a date — a camera crew will be there! I’ll be safe!” Kate told People back in April. “And the person will have been vetted by a matchmaker.”
