Reality star, best-selling author, grating spouse and mother of eight Kate Gosselin is 35 today. Happy birthday to the reverse mulleted pride of the Keystone State!
It's difficult to believe that less than a year ago, Kate was merely half of Jon & Kate Plus 8 ... or one tenth of it, if you want to look at it that way. You get the idea.
