I Am Shocked By How Different The Cast Of "Jon And Kate Plus 8" Looks Now

The sextuplets are about to turn 15!

2007 was a hellavuh year, so it's no surprise that's when the popular show Jon and Kate Plus 8 began filming.

Here's a lil' flashback of the season one opener.

The series followed the everyday life of Jon and Kate Gosselin who had twin girls and a set of sextuplets.


Kate had polycystic ovarian syndrome, so she conceived her children through fertility treatments. The show first aired on the Discovery Health Channel, but later moved to TLC. During its run, the series was one of the network's highest-rated programs.

This picture of Kate pregnant with the sextuplets will be forever burned in my memory.


Kate gave birth to Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, Joel in May of 2004. They joined twins Cara and Madelyn, who were born in October of 2000.

In 2009, Jon and Kate divorced, so the show was changed to Kate Plus 8.


And – since the show ran for 11 seasons – the kids grew up A LOT. Here's a look at the cast, then vs. now:

Currently, Cara, Madelyn, Leah, Joel, Aaden, and Alexis live with their mom.

While Collin and Hannah live with their dad.

So, what's next for the Gosselin clan? Kate Plus Date – a show that follows Kate while she searches for love.

The show is set to air on TLC this June.
