Kate Gosselin is about to lose two more children! The TLC star recently opened up about her twins Mady and Cara moving to New York City for college. The Kate Plus Date star’s ex-husband Jon has custody of her other children Collin and Hannah.
Mady and Cara, both 18, are headed to two different colleges in NYC this fall. “They’re both so excited,” Kate, 44, told PEOPLE. “They agreed all along that they don’t want to go to the same school, because their ambitions are different.”
The Kate Plus Date star admitted she has “mixed emotions” about them leaving their Pennsylvania home.
The twins' big move will cut Kate’s family in half. As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Kate’s ex-husband Jon, 42, gained temporary primary custody of her son Collin, 15, in December 2018 after she failed to show up at a court hearing. Hannah, 15, had been living with her father permanently for a few months prior.
“Within six days Mady has to be dropped off, Cara has to be dropped off, and the little kids begin their first day of high school,” Kate told PEOPLE. “Keeping straight the deadlines and dates for two different schools is mind-blowing.”
She continued, “The best advice I’ve heard is not to feel too obligated to stay. The kids don’t really want that; eventually, you have to be the one to drive away.”
The TLC star’s children Alexis, Aaden, Leah and Joel remain in her custody. “We are all going to miss them," Kate admitted. "I don’t care if they only come home to see the dog — as long as they come home!”
