‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’: Jon Gosselin Just Said He Currently Loves His Life on Instagram
It’s been years since Jon & Kate Plus 8 has been on the air, and Jon and Kate Gosselin’s divorce is truly what catapulted them to superstardom. Fans of the reality stars likely recall how messy their split was, especially since they had eight children involved. And while six of the kids are still under Kate’s roof, two of them have chosen to live with Jon full-time. Considering the fact that Jon and Kate communicate as little as possible, the household seems more divided than ever before.
While Kate is still popular on reality TV with her current show, Kate Plus Date, it seems Jon has taken some time away from the cameras, too. But the dad is still quite active on Instagram — and he appears to be doing better than ever. Here’s what he recently posted about his life.
Jon Gosselin currently has custody of Hannah and Collin Gosselin
As stated before, Kate has four of the sextuplets under her roof, and her twins are headed off to college soon — but Hannah and Collin live with Jon. It was back in August 2018 that Hannah decided she wanted to live with her father full-time instead of her mom, too. An insider told HollywoodLife of the situation, “Hannah lives full time with Jon and they are always out and about together in his hometown of Reading, PA. The details of his custody arrangement with Kate are top secret though. No one but Kate and Jon and their lawyers know the specifics.”
As for Collin, he’s only been living with Jon since the very end of 2018. After Kate put Collin in a facility to deal with his anger issues and “special needs,” Jon went to court for full custody and won since Kate failed to show. He’s also since mentioned that Collin is doing very well in his care and doesn’t have any “special needs” that Kate discussed in the past.
Jon posted on Instagram about how he’s loving life
With his divorce reported on major media outlets and his privacy totally gone because of reality TV, Jon had to rebuild his life out of the spotlight from the ground up. And while many ex-reality stars seem to get into even more trouble behind the scenes, Jon seems happier than ever with his two children and long-time girlfriend, Colleen Conrad. He even recently posted photos of his beach trip and told all of his followers how great life has been for him and his family.
“Hannah is Still at the the beach with her friends and of course Collin wouldn’t miss a meal!!! Our favorite place Back Bay Ale House!!! [sic],” Jon captioned the post of him, Collin, Conrad, and Conrad’s father. “I Love Colleen, I love my kids and I Love my life, my family and my friends. Things are good!!! I really can’t complain, I’m truly blessed!!! [sic].”
Fans are ultra-supportive of Jon
It seems fans still have mixed opinions of Kate, but as far as Jon is concerned, he’s getting more support than ever from his Instagram followers. On his recent beach photo, one follower commented on how great of an influence Jon has been on Collin this past year. “What you have done for Collin is truly remarkable. It is beyond wonderful to see how well you’re all doing,” they wrote. And another added, “Love that Collin looks so happy!”
Aside from Collin, fans are also loving how happy Jon looks. “I love that you have found happiness. I use to cringe at how mean Kate was to you. I saw her dating show and the thing was she does have a hard time letting people in she’s guarded. I hope you both find happiness it looks like you have,” another follower commented on this photo of Jon and Colleen. “You look so happy! Good for you!!!” yet another added.
We’re happy Jon has seemed to find peace amongst the years of drama. As for his relationship with his six remaining kids, we’ll have to see if that improves at all over time.
