by at .

Kate Gosselin and her brood return to TLC for Season 4 of Kate Plus 8 next week, and you simply won't believe how much the kids have grown.

Remember back in the Jon & Kate Plus 8 heyday?

It seems like an eternity ago, because it kinda was.

Whereas from 2005-2009, the married Gosselins raised young twins and newborn-toddler sextuplets, nowadays, things are just a bit different.

Kate and Jon have long split up. She's been hustling, trying to stay relevant and make some bank, and somehow got this show back on the air.

Jon has been ... doing whatever the heck Jon does.

While there's no love lost between them, they do love their kids. And fame. And while the fame has decreased from their prime, the kids have grown!

Here's Kate with two teenagers and six 11-year-olds!

Yes, time flies when you're having fun. Or being Kate.

In an interview with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on NBC's Today yesterday, Kate revealed that twins Mady and Cara are interested in boys.

“I was like, ‘I can’t deal with it.’ That moment was etched in my mind forever because I was like, ‘This is not okay with me,’” Gosselin recalled.

The girls aren’t just stressing her out with that, either.

“I’ve heard the 15-year-old girl thing is scary and get ready. There are bursts of it, but they’re good girls," Kate lamented, as many moms have.

"They do know everything [now] and they tell me how to dress… and even in terms of dating, all the advice, they’ve never even gone on a date!"

"Not even sure how they know and I know nothing."

Her sextuplets Alexis, Aaden, Leah, Collin, Hannah and Joel are now 11 and equally as opinionated: “I have no idea where they got it,” she joked.

In addition to how much the kids have changed, and how they keep Kate on the ropes, Season 4 of Kate Plus 8 will also shed light on her dating life.

Or lack thereof, as it turns out.

The reality star explained she doesn’t have time for dates with a house full of kids to run, but she was in a relationship with Jeff Prescott this year.

Of course, that ended badly with Kate getting dumped - and reports that she was using him for the reality show, depending on who you believe.

There was also a fake Jon Gosselin celebratory tweet regarding the breakup that made headlines, because of course there are fake Jon accounts.

A day in the life. A day in the life.
