She's not a famous singer, actress, politician or historial figure. In fact, Kate Gosselin's fame is the result of being a mother of multiples - twice over. She's a mom of twin girls (Cara Nicole and Madelyn Kate, born in October 2000). Then, she and her husband Jon decided to try for "just one more." Kate gave birth to sextuplets (yep, six babies!) in May 2004: Alexis Faith, Hannah Joy, Aaden Jonathan, Collin Thomas, Leah Hope and Joel Kevin. The family's life -- including Kate's tumultuous breakup with her husband, Jon -- has been documented in the popular television series "Jon and Kate Plus 8" which airs on TLC. Their book, Multiple Bles8ings details their story and the faith that has sustained them through their journey.
