The Gosselin sextuplets turn 6 years old Monday (May 10), and the plan has been for the kids to celebrate their big day with both Jon and Kate Gosselin (separately, of course).

However, Jon tried to paint a different picture when cameras approached him last Thursday.

]]>a source tells RadarOnline. “But they had already discussed it and Kate told him of course he could see them, and they had reached an agreement.” Kate chose a Mothers’ Day birthday celebration for the sextuplets. Joining the festivities were her bodyguard Steve Neild and his family, along with Kate’s good friends. RadarOnline reports that Kate planned a special breakfast Monday for the kids, and she told Jon he could celebrate however he wanted with them after school. “She wants Jon to see the kids. The kids want to see their father,” says the source. “They love him very much and Kate knows that. She offered Jon total access to the kids on their birthday and knows the kids will be thrilled to be with him.” As for what’s up with the fibbing on camera? “Nobody knows why Jon does this, unless it’s for attention.” Probably not a bad guess.
