Kate Gosselin's Birthday Message for Her Sextuplets Is Just So Kate

Kate Gosselin kids

Congratulations to these reality star kids who are now officially teenagers! Kate Gosselin shared a then-and-now collage of her sextuplets in honor of their 13th birthday. But in typical Kate fashion, the reality show mom sort of made the message all about her rather than her super-cute kids.


We can't believe how grown-up these Gosselins are getting! With their new pics placed beside throwback shots, it really drives home how quickly time is passing.

Adorable, right? Kate shared the photo on Instagram and captioned it this way:

HAPPY 13th BIRTHDAY, my precious Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel! At this moment (7:51-7:53 am) 13 years ago, my life and heart were completed with your births! I love you all and NO MATTER WHAT it requires of me, I will ALWAYS be there for you; I'll always be your biggest cheerleader, your role model by example, your shoulder to cry on, the hug and laugh you need, and your mommy and friend! I love you guys! I got six times what I planned on, but I'd NEVER EVER go back! You're the six final pieces of my heart that I never knew I was looking for

We've heard of backhanded compliments, but is there such a thing as a backhanded birthday wish? You tell us -- because it seems like Kate's birthday wish (which should have been a sweet message to her kids) is all about her and her mom attributes.

But we'll cut Kate some slack; she is raising eight teenagers simultaneously -- something that could surely drive even the most even-tempered, mellow mom bonkers. Plus, having one birthday boy or girl is often a lot to handle -- now multiple it by six and yeesh!

And, based on her previous Instagram pic, it looks like Kate went out of her way to bake them a special birthday treat.

We're glad she made plenty, because teens can eat! Alongside this pic she wrote:

"13th birthday school treat gone wild.. apparently I don't know how to make a 'little' of anything!"

Good thing she's keeping her sense of humor, and it's great to see the whole family together and looking so happy. Happy birthday, Gosselins!
