The whole family stayed at the Karisma Hotels & Resorts Generations Riviera Maya where Gosselin got some downtime while her kids stayed busy.
Based on a preview clip from the show, Gosselin said that her time has been running so fast. “I’m turning 40. I can’t believe it. Please say you can’t either,” said Gosselin.
“She’s not going to like the fact there’s a 40 on it,” said Leah, one of the sextuplets. “But she can deal with it.”
In the clip, 14-year-old twins Mady and Cara and 11-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis and Hannah are seen decorating gourmet cakes, snorkeling and having an off-road adventure.

The family had a private birthday lunch at the Haab restaurant. But afterwards, Gosselin chose to enjoy some kid-free time with a close pal as they cruised into Playa Del Carmen in a stretch Navigator for a night out.
Over the first few years of Kate Plus 8, the show was being aired on a weekly basis on TLC. However, TLC now opts to just air occasional specials of the show. Supporters of the show have loved seeing Gosselin’s kids grow up.
According to Gosselin, she would love to have the reality show filmed every day but the mom of eight said that she is blessed to still be connected to TLC.
