Kate Gosselin pumps gas and walks dog as she settles into new life as a North Carolina nurse

Jon and Kate Plus Eight alum Kate Gosselin has been settling into her new quieter, fame-free life as a nurse living in Troutman, North Carolina.

On Tuesday, the 46-year-old mother-of-eight – who obtained her license from the North Carolina Board of Nursing on June 30 – was spotted casually filling her tank at a gas station.

Gosselin (born Kreider) sported a black Killington Ski Area T-shirt with matching leggings and white plastic slides as she pumped gas.

Kate – who once popularized the ‘I need to speak to the manager’ haircut – wore her long highlighted locks in a messy bun for her outing.

The Pennsylvania-born blonde was also seen walking the family dog while wrapped up in a Tommy Hilfiger hoodie.

Gosselin – who had a notorious hot-tempered, bossy onscreen persona – flashed a smile while bonding with her beloved canine companion.

It’s hard to believe Kate’s sextuplets – Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel, and Leah – will turn 18 on May 10 and officially become legal adults.

One of her daughters – either Alexis of Leah – landed a job working at the fast-food chain, Chipotle Mexican Grill.

The 17-year-old former child star was seen wearing her uniform as she reported for duty at the popular restaurant.

A bird’s eye view of the retired reality star’s 3,562 square-foot, four-bedroom home revealed she has a dock, small swimming pool, and a jacuzzi.

Gosselin purchased the house next to the man-made Lake Norman of Catawba for $750K and moved in March – according to The Sun.

The site reported on February 15 that Kate sold her marital 23-acre, six-bedroom Wernersville, PA home for $1.085M – $35K less than what she and ex-husband Jon Gosselin paid for it in 2008.

On August 7, Madelyn aka Mady posted a TikTok video of herself going back-to-school shopping with her famous mother and siblings.

Meanwhile, their 44-year-old estranged father has primary custody of Hannah and Collin, who alleged that Jon had abused him in September 2020 – according to People.

The Gosselins reportedly only communicate through their attorneys following the end of their acrimonious decade-long marriage in 2009.

Kate and the Amazon IT specialist’s hit TLC series Jon & Kate Plus 8 aired for five seasons spanning 2007-2010, once amassing 9.8M viewers for the fifth season premiere.

During her hey-day, Gosselin was said to earn $250K per episode to produce and star in the rebranded Kate Plus 8, which ran for six seasons spanning 2010-2017 plus a ‘College Bound’ episode in 2019.

But Gosselin hasn’t been on television since 2019 when she attempted to find love on her six-episode spin-off, Kate Plus Date.

‘She has been living off the money she made in the past but it’s been years since her last job.’
