Poor Kate! Life as a hardworking mom is taking a toll on Kate’s ankles!

Kate Gosselin, the star of DWTS and two new shows on TLC put on an enthusiastic front but the stress of dancing, flying back and forth to LA, battling Jon for custody of her kids and now promoting upcoming shows — Twist of Kate, and Kate Plus 8 is definitely showing in her … swollen ankles!

When Kate took to the stage at NYC’s Lincoln Center, to tell reporters about her new TLC shows starting in the next few months, she looked super cute in a black and white polka dot dress but we couldn’t help worrying about her feet. “Both flying a great deal and increased exercise can cause swelling of the feet and ankles,” explains Dr. Rock Positano, Director of non-surgical foot and ankle service at NYC’s Hospital for Special Surgery. “When muscles, tendons and ligaments aren’t accustomed to that level of exercise, it’s common to develop overuse injuries. To get rid of swelling Kate needs to elevate her ankles at night and ice as much as possible,” he advises.

As for Kate’s new TV specials with her kids Kate told us, “The kids and I will be taking some adventures.”

A short clip showed the kids sitting around their kitchen table drawing pictures of places they would like to go on their trips. Aaden even yelled out, “I wish I could pack mommy in my backpack.” Kate, we bet your kids want to pack you in their backpacks. Now go home, snuggle with you 8 Gosselettes; put your feet up and ice before your dance partner Tony Dovolani arrives for your next practice session!
