Kate while pregnant with sextuplets
Every week, millions tune in to watch one Pennsylvania family get dressed, do laundry and get dinner on the table. Normally, everyday chores don't make great television…but this is no ordinary household.

Jon and Kate Gosselin are the parents of twins and sextuplets! "Jon and I both knew we always wanted to have kids," Kate says. "We weren't able to get pregnant on our own, so we turned to fertility treatments."

In 2000, Kate gave birth to twin girls, Cara and Mady. Then, the couple decided to try for one more child. "We got a little more than we bargained for—we got six more," Kate says. "We're considered a fertility nightmare."
