Where has the time gone?! Fans of the former reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8 might be shocked to hear twins Cara and Mady are officially adults! Kate Gosselin's pic of her newly 18-year-old daughters is one that has a number of people in disbelief given we all watched these two grow up over the years!

  • Cara and Madelyn are officially 18!

    "My adult daughters: @mady.gosselin and @cara.gosselin (FYI: these are their ONLY official IG accounts) #SoProud What a fun memory filled day we had together today!!" Kate Gosselin shared in an Instagram post to commemorate Cara and Mady's special day.

  • Their celebration was full of decorations, yummy edibles, and, of course, love.

    "Getting ready ......... it's a BIG busy day here! More to come .... HAPPY 18th Birthday, Cara and Madelyn!" the reality star mom shared in a heartfelt post.

    "There are no words to describe how proud I am of you both. Despite the many turbulent times you've had to deal with so far in life, you have emerged as wise, level headed, reasonable, forgiving, loving, kind and absolutely brilliant ADULTS! I can say that I've poured endless love into you and fought tooth and nail for the best for you, but I cannot possibly take credit for the truly wonderful humans (adult humans!) you have become! You will thrive in life, I am certain, and I will still be with you every step of the way going forward, continuing to guide you and love you. I love you both so very very much and I wish peace, happiness and the great successes I know are coming your way! #Turning18 #Adults #Love #Happy18thBirthdayCara #Happy18thBirthdayMady"

  • Jon Gosselin also gave his daughters a shout-out in honor of their big milestone.

    Sadly, Jon Gosselin has a bit of an estranged relationship with Cara and Mady. Not too long ago, the twins defended their mom after she was accused of brainwashing them, telling People, "He makes it seem like we're being kept from him, which is insane."

    "He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don't want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen," Mady told the outlet about their relationship. "He doesn't even know us. How can he dare to talk about us?"

  • A number of Kate's followers happily celebrated the occasion, wishing Mady and Cara a happy birthday.
