Jon and Kate Gosselin are now the proud parents of 15-year-old twins. Cara and Mady Gosselin turned 15 on Thursday. The older of the eight Gosselin children, Jon and Kate Gosselin are also the parents of 11-year-old sextuplets.

It was back in 2009 and after 10 years of marriage that Jon and Kate Gosselin got divorced. Since then they've been completely at odds with one another, especially over the topic of raising their children.

Jon Gosselin took to social media on Thursday with a throwback pic to wish his twins a happy 15th birthday.

Kate Gosselin also shared word of Cary and Mady's 15th birthday via Twitter.

Kate Gosselin said several months back that she wished the situation with Jon was better for the sake of their children.

"I wish that things were better for the kids. It's very clear by now that I'm just trying to preserve what relationship he has with them. I do think it's best for them, but, you know, divorce is hard, period," she said. "But it's really difficult when one parent is in the sabotaging mode. That's been difficult."

Just last month, Jon Gosselin talked about his relationship with his eight children.

"My custody is really strange," he said. "My custody with them is just, like, go out to dinner or whatever and then go home. Their schoolwork--they’re really engrossed in school right now."

He added that the birthday twins are into extra-curricular activities. Cara plays lacrosse and Mady goes to drama club. He claims the twins love to shop, too.

"Boys it’s so easy. Boys it’s like, 'You want to go play football?' Okay, awesome. 'Do you want to go fishing? Do you want to go hunting?'" Jon said. "But with girls it’s like--I want to go to the King of Prussia [mall]."

Do you suppose Cara and Mady got their love of shopping from mom Kate Gosselin?

Despite the lack of communication between Jon and Kate Gosselin, it's clear they both love their children. Hopefully for the sake of their twins, the two set their differences aside so Cara and Mady could enjoy their 15th birthday fun.

Can you believe Jon and Kate Gosselin's twins are 15 already?
