It's hard to believe Kate Gosselin's kids are getting older. We've seen them grow up in front of our eyes on television, which makes it mind-boggling that all eight children are now in their teens. Kate Gosselin's family snap of her kiddos is stirring up birthday feels among fans, but it's also causing a bit of anger about Jon and Kate's son Collin.

  • Kate took to the 'Gram recently to share this pic of what looks to be five of her sextuplets, who will turn 14 on May 10.

    "Rainy day ice cream ... #HowAreMyBabiesTurning14?" Kate Gosselin questions in her Instagram post. "#LoveThemAll (even the ones who refused to be in the pic)."

    Kate revealed in 2016 that she sent Collin Gosselin away to get help for his undisclosed special needs. "There is a huge hole in our family without him here," she told People about Collin being away from his family. "But it comforts us to know he's where he needs to be right now. I feel like I've made an investment in Collin's future. To know he's somewhere that's helping him reach his very best potential has been a relief in many ways."

    There's likely a good reason why Collin is still away -- assuming he is. Kate mentioned there were some kiddos who "refused" to be in the pic, so maybe Collin is one of those children. Regardless, it's always better to lead with passion instead of judgment.
