“Jon and Kate Gosselin have an announcement.”

Those are the words that appear on the screen in a new TLC promo for a one-hour Jon & Kate Plus Eight special episode, airing Monday (9 p.m. ET).

In the spot, Kate Gosselin says, “Recently, we’ve made some life-changing decisions — decisions that will affect every member of our family, ones that we hope will bring each of us some peace.”

The stirring spot, which also flashes phrases like “A family in turmoil” and “A relationship at a crossroads,” first aired Wednesday night on TLC.

In the season 5 premiere of Jon & Kate, which was watched by a record 9.8 million viewers, the Gosselins came together to throw a fifth birthday party for their sextuplets, but admitted that marital problems had made their future together uncertain.

“I wish I knew,” Kate said when asked by producers where they stand as a couple. But they both agreed to be there for their kids. “We will always love our kids,” Jon said on the premiere. “We will come together for our kids.” — Aaron Parsley
