Kate Gosselin is ready to date again.
The television personality, who is mom to eight kids, is the star of TLC’s new series “Kate Plus Date.”
No one could be happier that she’s back in the dating game, since splitting from ex-husband Jon Gosselin back in 2009, than her 18-year-old twin daughters Cara and Mady Gosselin.
“We’ve been nudging her to date for years,” Mady shared at a TCA panel in Los Angeles on Tuesday, according to E! News. “We’re all, all eight of us, are so glad that she finally is.”
Mady expressed that her mom “deserves to be happy. Everyone deserves to be happy.”
The premise of the show centers on Kate as she works with a matchmaker and goes on dates with various men. Both Mady and Cara will be lending their help as well.
Kate, 43, said the process wasn’t easy and she found it “difficult” to nail down exactly what she wanted in a future mate. Her ambivalence led to “awkward” and “uncomfortable” dates.
While Kate is looking for love, her ex Jon seems to be doing just fine. He’s got a new love and is taking care of daughter Hannah and son Collin.
