Jon & Kate Plus 8 is a reality show on TLC that features Jon and Kate Gosselin and their eight children – a set of sextuplets (three boys and three girls) and a set of twin girls. The family first appeared on television network Discovery Health, in the form of two hour long specials. From there, TLC continued to film the family for weekly shows beginning in January of 2007.
As one of TLC’s highest rated programs, many viewers have been encouraging Jon and Kate to take up residence in a home that would be far more suiting to the family’s unusual needs – production equipment, additional lighting, and of course eight young children. The family had reportedly been searching new houses for quite some time.
Where do Jon and Kate Gosselin Live?
Earlier this year, Jon & Kate Plus 8 aired an episode featuring their new home. A $1.12 million dollar home in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The home was built in 1998 and features five bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths, and 6,200 square feet of living space.
Jon and Kate first met in October 1997 and were married shortly after on June 12, 1999. In February 2000 Kate became pregnant with twins, Cara Nicole and Madelyn “Mady” Kate, after turning to intrauterine insemination. In October 2003, the couple turned once again to fertility treatment this time to discover Kate was pregnant with the sextuplets – Alexis Faith, Hannah Joy, Aaden Jonathon, Collin Thomas, Leah Hope, and Joel Kevin.
Jon, Kate, their eight children, and Shooka & Nala (the family’s German Shepard dogs who became part of the family during Christmas 2008) are reportedly much happier in their mansion size home.
The new season of Jon & Kate Plus 8 returns to TLC on May 25th. Viewers and fans of the show can learn much more about the family by visiting their official website on TLC.
