Jon Gosselin

Jonathan Keith "Jon" Gosselin (Born April 1, 1977) is an American television personality, known for his appearances with then-wife Kate Gosselin and their eight children on the American reality TV show Jon & Kate Plus 8. Jonathan Keith Gosselin was born and raised in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania as the middle child in a family of three boys. Gosselin's mother was born and raised in Hawaii as a second generation Korean American (his maternal grandparents emigrated from Korea), and his father is of French, Irish, and Welsh descent. He graduated from Wyomissing High School in 1995. Gosselin met Kate Kreider at a company picnic on October 5, 1997. They married on June 12, 1999. Twin girls, Cara and Madelyn, were born on October 8, 2000. Initially, Jon was against having a third child, but he and Kate eventually decided to try to get pregnant again. On May 10, 2004, Kate gave birth to sextuplets: sons, Aaden, Collin, and Joel, and daughters, Leah, Alexis, and Hannah. The sextuplets were born 10 weeks premature, which is common in cases of multiple births. They received local media coverage until the sextuplets were 17 months old, when Discovery Health offered the couple a reality series
