Kate has been on the market for two years and she claims her kiddies can’t wait for her to walk down the aisle again!

Kate Gosselin is on the prowl, but she needs help! The mom-of-eight appeared on the Today Show Aug. 8 to promote her new episode of Kate Plus 8 and she didn’t play coy about her dating life. Kate, 36, tells host Ann Curry that she’s “ready” to start dating but there are “obstacles” in her way.

“As far as love life, I’ve said it a lot of times … I’m definitely ready to start dating,” Kate reveals. “A lot of obstacles for me. I hope to just bump into somebody, but I talked to my best friend and if she could go around the country and collect suitable people … I have 8 kids, a crazy work schedule. I know there are a lot of obstacles and I am ready to start dating. It’s sort of daunting though.”

Kate and her ex-husband Jon Gosselin divorced in 2009 after 10 years of marriage. Since then Jon has had several girlfriends and now he’s in a committed relationship with Ellen Ross. Ironically, instead of the eight Gosselettes wanting their own parents to reconcile, Kate says they want her to find someone new!

“I don’t know where life will take me. I’m hoping there’s someone out there because the kids on a daily basis are just begging for me to get married again,” Kate laughs. “They bring it up all the time!”

Do you think Kate is ready to settle down again?
