During a recent appearance on the Today Show, Kate Gosselin stated that she was in no hurry to start dating. The reality TV diva, who recently appeared on Dancing with the Stars, said that she is very happy being single.
In fact, her advice to her daughters – Cara and Mady, 9, and Alexis, Hannah and Leah, 6 – is to wait until they are “30 and beyond” before they take the plunge! The mother-of-multiples married young and now feels that you should be “really, really, really sure” about marriage and question any need for rushing into it at a young age.
She is, however, open to having discussions with her eight children – including her 6-year-old boys Aaden, Collin and Joel – about whether she is likely to date, or eventually remarry, as they are often wondering when mommy is going to get a new boyfriend.
Kate stresses that now is not the right time for a new beau and she feels “my kids need so much of me that I need to be with them”. She does not feel ready to “personally move forward” at at this time.
Kate and her kids recently returned to TLC in the new series Kate Plus 8, which raked in 3.4 million viewers. The episode centered on the sextuplets’ sixth birthday. After the episode, Kate’s own show, Twist of Kate, kept 3 million viewers interested.
