Cara's Social Media:


Cara Gosselin was born in the town of Hershey, Pennsylvania, on October 8, 2000. Her parents are Jon and Kate Gosselin. Madelyn Gosselin, her twin sister, is one of her seven siblings. She arrived six minutes before her twin, and both of them were five weeks early. She received her education at Lancaster Country Day School and Fordham University. She is a Libra.

Cara’s family was featured in the N.B.C. reality television show “Home Delivery” after Kate Gosselin’s sextuplets were born. The family was featured in Discovery Health’s “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins” in 2005, as well as “Sextuplets and Twins: One Year Later” the following year, where Gosselin made her professional debut. The series was a success, drawing a large audience and opening up new doors. The Gosselins went on to star in the Discovery Health series “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” which aired in 2007. The reality program, however, did not seem sustainable after her parent’s bitter divorce in 2009 and was canceled the same year after two seasons. Around 2008, Gosselin portrayed herself on the television show “Good Morning America.” In addition, from 2007 to 2008, Gosselin starred in the television series “Gosselins, Goblins, and Ghouls.” She went on to star in the sitcom “The View” in 2014 after being on the T.V. show “Today” from 2007 to 2014.

“Kate Plus 8” returned after a three-year absence. It showed her mother Kate and siblings going about their normal lives. The first episode of the series premiered on T.L.C. on January 13, 2015, and the final episode of season six aired in 2017. T.L.C. announced that they would film a college-bound special on “Kate Plus 8” in mid-2019, following Gosselin’s high school graduation and entrance to university, while “Kate Plus Date” aired on T.L.C. in 2019.
