Jon and Kate Gosselin Wish Sextuplets a Happy 16th Birthday on Social Media


Jon and Kate Gosselin may no longer be together, but they're still joining forces to wish their sextuplets a happy 16th birthday.

The reality stars, of "Jon and Kate Plus 8" fame, both took to Instagram yesterday to wish their kids, Hannah, Collin, Leah, Joel, Alexis, and Aaden, a happy birthday. Kate was the first to take to the 'gram.

"Happy 16th Birthday to my half a dozen 'Hershey Kisses,' as they were called at birth! I love you so much!" the caption reads. She continued, "You're 6 of the sweetest things to happen to my life!"

"Thanks for making every Mother's Day extra memorable! (They requested 'junk cereals' for their birthday lunch (?!) so I got a bit carried away, as usual, and got them 21 different kinds!"

The caption accompanies a photo of a box of Hershey Kisses Cereal.

Jon then took to his own social media handle with his well wishes. "Happy 16th Birthday to Hannah & Collin!!! I miss you Leah, Joel, Alexis, and Aaden I hope your 16th Birthday is just as memorable!!!" he wrote.

Hannah and Collin live with Jon while the other four live with Kate.

According to People, Jon revealed in a February interview with First Class Fatherhood that Collin has had "no contact" with Kate as the family dynamic has remained "very tumultuous."

Jon and Kate Gosselin were married for 10 years before divorcing in 2009. They share the sextuplets along with twins Cara and Madelyn, who are 19.

Jon spoke to reporters in 2018 about the relationship he has with his children. "It's what the kids want to do. If they don't want to talk to me, that's fine, as long as they keep up with their sibling connections," he said.
