Kate Gosselin is turning 40, and will share her celebration with all her fans. TLC is set to air a special episode of Kate Plus 8, which will highlight the recent antics of the Gosselin brood as they celebrate their mom's big day.

“I’m turning 40. I can’t believe it," Kate Gosselin says in a clip that previews the show. "Please say you can’t either?”

While away with her kids, and filming this TLC special, Kate Gosselin reportedly got some 'adult' time in as well. Sources say bodyguard Steve Neild joined the Gosselin gang on their trip to Cancun, and that he and Kate went to Generations Riviera Maya to celebrate sans the children.

Steve Neild has reportedly left Kate Gosselin for Josh Duggar, however. The bodyguard was sent to Josh and Anna Duggar's home to ward off the media as the 19 Kids and Counting stars packed up to move back in Arkansas in the midst of Josh Duggar's sexual molestation scandal.

Alas it seems Josh Duggar is only 'borrowing' Steve Neild, and Kate Gosselin should have him back by her side in no time at all.

The Kate Plus 8 episode highlight Kate Gosselin and her family as they travel to Cancun to celebrate her 40th birthday is titled The Big Four-Oh! It airs on TLC on Tuesday evening, June 23rd at 10:00 p.m. ET.

Will you be tuning in to celebrate along with Kate Gosselin?
