Kate Gosselin Spanks Daughter Leah

Photos have been released by In Touch Weekly of Kate Gosselin spanking her daughter Leah.

Kate allegedly grabbed her daughter by the arm and smacked her bottom before walking away from the child. Photos show the mother of 8 holding her child by the arm, raising her hand, as well as Leah crying and holding her rear end.

According to the magazine, Leah had been asked to stop blowing a whistle and was not listening.

Kate is defending her actions regarding the incident.

"Whether the paparazzi are there or not, I am a mother first," Gosselin told Life & Style Weekly. "I love my children and when they misbehave, I discipline them as I deem appropriate for the situation."

The Gosselin family is well known for their reality show "Jon and Kate plus 8" on TLC, and has been under public scrutiny due to an alleged affair and failing marriage.
