Kate Gosselin sent not one, but two daughters off to college this year!

Despite this, they decided to go off to separate colleges.

The whole situation has been understandably hard on mom.

“It is the biggest mixed bag of emotions and stress I have ever faced,” Kate told People.

“Mady and Cara really steered the ship in terms of applying to colleges; they knew what they wanted, and I trusted them."

"That same feeling is going to have to carry me through my fears now when I think about them going off on their own, fending for themselves, being alone for the first time.”

The actress is feeling all sorts of emotional over sending her eldest son Maddox to college — and there's a video to prove it.

Unfortunately, visiting him won't be that easy. Being the smarty pants that he is, he's studying biochemistry at Yonsei University in South Korea.

When she was at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California this past weekend, she revealed that she't not afraid to "ugly cry" over the situation.

"Oh my god, and embarrass your children ugly cry!" she said.

"I miss him, I miss him. Or I'll just get out there. It's not like I haven't set my plane tickets."
