Kate Gosselin is reportedly estranged from her parents, as well as her siblings. However, she lives only a few miles away from some family members. Gosselin resides with her eight children, including sextuplets, in a large home in rural Pennyslvania.
Gosselin was born and raised in Pennsylvania as one of five siblings. Her father was a pastor. She gained fame when she starred, along with her ex-husband Jon Gosselin, in the reality television show, "Jon & Kate Plus 8." The series chronicled the couple's adventures raising sextuplets, as well as two older daughters.
The Gosselins divorced in 2009. Primary custody of the couple's eight children was awarded to Kate Gosselin. During custody hearings, her brother Kevin Kreider and his wife Jodi Kreider testified that the reality program was harmful to the Gosselin children.
