We’ve Watched Them Grow Up Before Our Eyes. Now Twins Mady And Cara Gosselin Have Turned 17-Years-Old

October 13, 2017

Do you remember the show “Jon and Kate Plus 8?” It was a show that captured all our attention when a mom with twins gave birth to sextuplets. America couldn't take their eyes off the chaos that happened within the four walls of the Gosselin's home.

A lot has changed over the years. The show is now called, “Kate Plus 8,” because Kate is now a single mom raising her eight kids. Recently, the family had a big day to celebrate as the two oldest girls had a birthday; the twins turned 17-years-old. Wow! The time has really flown by! Can they really be 17?

Kate wrote on her Instagram, '....And then you blink, and they TURN SEVENTEEN!! Happy birthday to my girls! My heart hurts because you're almost adults and will soon leave for college, yet it smiles because I am seeing who you've become: brilliant, beautiful, kind, caring, logical, responsible, empathetic, honest, amazing individuals! I love you both SO VERY MUCH! Let's have a wonderful day together celebrating Y❤️U!."

Cara and Mady who were born on October 8, 2000, gained stardom when their sextuplet siblings were born: Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis, Hannah, and Leah. The world watched as the kids grew up on TLC. Some say that fame is what caused the family to split, back in 2009, when Jon and Kate divorced. Kate said, "A lot of people think that filming our show has damaged us, but it's only really helped."

Well, we want to wish the girls a very Happy Birthday filled with love and joy!
