Kate Gosselin opened up about her struggles with raising her children as a single mom in a new sit-down with Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Gosselin spoke with Dr. Oz on his talk show in a new interview set to air Thursday, delving into her feelings on raising her eight kids on her own.
"I'm really outnumbered now and I have to kind of be the mom and the dad. It's been double duty and there's nobody to back me up. It's really challenging," Gosselin said. "There are so many single moms, single dads out there, and we are all just trying to pick up the pieces together. It's hard."
The reality star continues to raise her eight kids on her own, years after divorcing from husband of 10 years Jon Gosselin. The pair rose to prominence through their TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8, which has since become Kate Plus 8.
Kate explained how her kids have grown up and gotten closer with her over the years.
"We've pulled tighter. They are a lot more emphatic, whether you see it or not," she explained. "The bad is, unfortunately, they feel torn a lot between parents and that's understandable, but hard to digest for all of us."
Dr. Oz also played a clip of Kate in her TLC reality show, in which her sextuplets were shown as babies.
"I do wish that there was an option that you could press a button and I could go back to that baby routine and go back for a week and kiss them more. ... You can do no wrong. And now I just do everything wrong," Kate says in the clip. "Ten years ago, if you would have said that I was a single mom and divorced, I would have thought, 'Crap, down a parent.' I'm glad I didn't know."
The sextuplets have turned 12, as seen in the premiere of the latest season of Kate Plus 8. The series continues to air new episodes every Tuesday on TLC.
