Jon & Kate Spend July 4 With Their Eight

Jon and Kate Gosselin may be getting a divorce, but the separated couple didn’t celebrate their independence on the 4th of July.

Instead, the reality stars joined their eight children for the holiday at their home in Wernersville, Pa., People reported.

The family was reportedly spotted playing volleyball and picking blueberries for a cake baked by Kate. For his part, Jon lit up a sparkler.

“Jon pointed to the July 4 holiday and said, ‘What are we going to do about that?’” Kate previously told the mag. “I absolutely cannot imagine not spending every single holiday with my kids. I don’t care what it takes. I will be there.”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Jon and Kate announced their separation on the June 22 episode of their TLC show, “Jon & Kate Plus Eight,” filing divorce papers two days later.

The show is on hiatus until August 3 in order to give the family “time off to regroup,” according to TLC.
