Her heart is so full! Kate Gosselin hasn’t been posting much on Instagram, but she finally returned to social media on Sept. 30 with a sweet post about her kids and pets. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star updated fans on her family life and shared adorable new photos. 

“Part of our zoo❤️Wouldn’t have it any other way! #HumanAndFurKids #Love,” Kate captioned the snaps, showing their precious pup Nanuq and playful bird Zorro bonding with one of the kids. When a fan asked if Zorro slept on his back like he did in the second pic, Kate revealed that Alexis taught him how to do that. “He loves it!” the reality star added. She also addressed how Zorro’s grown up with her children in another comment, writing: “He’s five already! Hard to believe! He joined our family when he was six-months-old.” 

Fans had the sweetest things to say and several flooded her with compliments. “You are such an amazing mom to your human and animal kids,” one gushed, while another wrote: “From one single mother to another, you rock Kate! What you’re doing ain’t for the faint of heart!” After 10 years of marriage and eight children, Jon, 41, and Kate, 43, finalized their divorce in 2009. She last posted about how life can be stressful, amid their heated custody battle

Things got even more tense when Hannah decided to move in with her father, however Kate is focusing on the positive. She recently revealed that Mady and Cara are starting their senior year of high school and the sextuplets are beginning eighth grade. Meanwhile, her son Collin is reportedly still enrolled in a program away from home to “be the best him he can be.” Kate is also starring in a series about her love life, Kate Plus Date, so she’s kept busy!
