That Hair! See ‘Kate Plus 8’ Alum Kate Gosselin’s Transformation Over the Years

Then and now! Kate Gosselin has changed quite a bit since she burst onto the reality TV scene with her family’s hit show Jon and Kate Plus 8. From her signature bob to her long blonde hair extensions, it’s clear this mama has aged in reverse.

The days of Kate chasing after toddlers in baggy sweatpants are long gone. Now that her sextuples are in high school, a lot has changed in the Gosselin household. Twins Cara and Mady are in college and Collin and Hannah live with her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, full-time.

As Kate embarks on her next phase of life, she is ready to add a plus one to her plus eight. Back in June 2019, Kate starred in Kate Plus Date — a reality show focused on finding herself a man.

“Are you ready to go on dates with me!? I can’t WAIT to share all these scary, awkward, fun, exciting, dorky and rewarding moments with you! I’m going on this adventure in hopes of finding my someone, but I also hope to show all single parents out there … that dating is mostly survivable LOL!” she wrote on Instagram ahead of her show’s premiere.

Kate said her children fully support her dating and have discussed the idea for a while. “My kids have talked about it probably, over the years, more than I have,” Kate said in a confessional. “It’s a topic of dinner conversation. It’s a topic that comes up more than people probably would realize, and they want me to be happy and they don’t want me to be alone.”

Kate divorced Jon in 2009 after 10 years of marriage. Her ex has since moved on with girlfriend Colleen Conrad, though it appears she’s still single … for now.

From mom life to the dating scene, Kate has gone through one hell of a transformation. Keep scrolling to see photos of the busy mama then and now.
