About Alexis[]

Alexis was the first born of the sextuplets to be delivered via Caesarean section on May 10, 2004 at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. She was born at 7:51 a.m., weighing 2 pounds, 11.5 ounces, measuring 15 inches long[1]

Alexis Faith Gosselin is goofy, cunning, outgoing and full of laughter. She's the family comedian, the loudest Gosselin, and is "one of the boys," always roughhousing right along with them. She stands apart with her vivacious personality! She's also extremely affectionate and loves giving hugs and kisses. Alexis was the last sextuplet to begin walking, instead being content to just sit and watch as the others struggled to find their footing. Her nicknames are "Lex" and "Lexi" ... and at one time she was called "Sassy."[2]

School trouble[]

In 2010, it was reported that six-year-olds Alexis and Collin had been expelled from their private school for "angry behavior"

Alexis refused to sit down and preferred to get up and run around.[3] A source close to the family says that the two "fought with their peers, called them nasty names and made fun of other kids."[4]

Kate stated that they were not expelled, a word the school did not use. She says the school felt as though they "could not meet their needs anymore," so the decision was made the kids should leave. They then began seeing a private tutor until they were ready to reenter school. The two also went to a therapist, where they began improving from the post-divorce anger they were suffering.[3] There was a claim that Kate lied and the kids had in fact been expelled, one for causing physical harm to an adult on two occasions.[5]

In an August 2013 interview with People magazine, Alexis says she would like to live on a ranch and study bugs.[6]
