Jon and Kate Gosselin

Jon and Kate Gosselin made a name for themselves simply because they had a ton of kids. After struggling with infertility, the now-exes welcomed twins Madelyn and Cara in October 2000. Wanting just one more child, Kate convinced Jon to do agree to another round of IVF treatments – and in May 2004, she delivered six healthy babies (Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel, and Leah ), thus giving birth to TLC’s “Jon & Kate Plus 8.” After five seasons, the couple split in 2009 and she carried on with her own spin-off, “Kate Plus 8,” which has since also gone off the air.
