Jon and Kate Gosselin's Twins Mady and Cara Are Officially 18!

By Anna Quintana

When Jon and Kate Gosselin welcomed sextuplets in 2004, they made headlines — and it wasn't long before TLC offered the family a reality show. However, before Jon and Kate welcomed six babies at one time, they were the proud parents of twin girls, Madelyn (Mady) and Cara. 

During their 11 seasons on Jon and Kate Plus 8, Mady and Cara were the perfect big sisters to their younger siblings,  Aaden, Alexis, Leah, Collin, Hannah, and Joel (now 14 years old). Fast forward to 2018, and it's hard to believe that the girls are celebrating their 18th birthday. 

"HAPPY 18th Birthday, Cara and Madelyn! 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," Kate captioned an emotional post on Instagram. "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!"
