Kate and Jon Gosselin announced that they are separating on Monday night’s episode of "Jon & Kate Plus 8," the Los Angeles Times reports.

Earlier today, People reported that the couple had filed for divorce in Pennsylvania Monday afternoon, citing an unnamed source.

"I just need relief now. I need to turn the page," Kate said during the episode.

"I don’t hate Kate. But I have to do what’s best for me and my kids," Jon said in a separate interview during the episode.

The Los Angeles Times notes that on Monday, Kate said she would continue filming on the TLC show, while Jon seemed less certain. However, the New York Times reports that both Kate and Jon will continue filming on the series, but separately from each other.

"We’ve always done the show for the kids to be able to provide for them, to collect the memories for ourselves," Kate said.

Added Jon: "We’ll film different things, me and the kids, her and the kids."
