The media coverage made the Gosselins, parents of 8-year-old twins and 5-year-old sextuplets, one of the country's most discussed couples even before the reality show's fifth season premiere, which netted nearly 10 million viewers, and the media coverage garnered huge ratings for the show all season.
Recently, Kate and Jon hadn't been photographed often together. Kate Gosselin was shown hitting the beach with her children during a recent vacation to North Carolina, sans husband. Jon Gosselin was spotted reportedly shopping for an apartment in New York City.
On Monday's episode, Kate Gosselin said the couple had always done the show for their children, and that "my goal is peace for the kids."
