- Mady and Cara, Jon and Kate Gosselin’s twin daughters featured on Jon and Kate Plus 8, are all grown up and heading to college—feel old yet?
- Naturally, Kate is super worried about Mady and Cara and is a sad momma now that two of her babies are leaving the nest.
Can you believe that Jon and Kate Plus 8 first premiered on television 12 whole years ago?? Somehow it feels like just yesterday, when Jon and Kate Gosselin were still together, raising a pair of twins and a small army of sextuplets. Now, Kate is on her mission to find love on TV again, her sextuplets are teenagers now, and her set of twins—18-year-olds Mady and Cara—is off to college. They grow up so fast!!!
It feels too good to be true to me (really, where did the time go?), so it must feel even more so for Kate, who is obviously freaking TF out. “It is the biggest mixed bag of emotions and stress I have ever faced,” she told People. “Mady and Cara really steered the ship in terms of applying to colleges; they knew what they wanted, and I trusted them. That same feeling is going to have to carry me through my fears now when I think about them going off on their own, fending for themselves, being alone for the first time.”
Mady and Cara leaving the nest is already scary enough for Kate, but on top of alllll that apprehension, she also has to deal with the twins going to different colleges in NYC. Leaving home and separating? Now that’s what I call Adulthood™. “They agreed all along that they don’t want to go to the same school,” Kate said, explaining that “their ambitions are so different that they really felt there’s not one college that would fully answer what each of them wanted.”
While Mady and Cara are going to be away for months at a time, Kate will be waiting patiently for them to return home—even if she and their siblings aren’t the reason they come back. “I don’t care if they only come home to see the dog—fine with me,” Kate said. “As long as they come home!”
