Bosom buddy, indeed!

Mom of eight Kate Gosselin, 35, is rarely seen without her trusted bodyguard of three years, Steve Neild. During her recent run on Dancing with the Stars, a show source says, the New Zealander was "omnipresent on the set -- at rehearsals, on the press line, everywhere!"

And now a source says in the new Us Weekly the married father of two not only drove Gosselin to the doctor when she got breast enhancements March 30, 2009, but even weighed in on what the result should be: "Kate was going to have one kind of breast augmentation, but she changed her mind after talking to Steve about what would look best."

(Multiple sources tell Us Weekly the procedure --  which can cost $10,000 -- took place. Gosselin went from a size 4 shirt to a size 6 shirt.)

Asked about a boob job earlier this year, Gosselin responded, "Plastic surgery? Please. Who has time to even think about it, let alone do it?"

Well, she did: The TLC star's tummy tuck was documented on a 2007 episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8!
