Who is Jon Gosselin’s Girlfriend, Colleen Conrad?
You may remember Jon Gosselin from the TLC reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8 or perhaps you know him more for his antics off camera.
Jon and Kate Gosselin first found fame in 2005 after specials aired chronicling their lives raising twins and sextuplets. The one-hour programs were such a success that the family was offered their own reality show titled Jon & Kate Plus 8. The two then became household names but viewers learned that they had a contentious relationship and their marriage began to crumble. In 2009, after 10 years together, they divorced.
After their divorce, Jon was accused of doing anything he could to stay in the spotlight. He made headlines for partying it up (and stripping) at nightclubs and was photographed with different women all the time. But a lot has changed since then.
These days he’s in a serious relationship with Colleen Conrad and the two have even talked about getting married, which is something Gosselin had previously said he would never do again.
Here’s more on the woman who stole his heart and could one day become the new Mrs. Gosselin.
They knew each other their whole lives
Gosselin and Conrad have been dating since 2015 but they’ve known each other their entire lives.
“I’ve known Colleen my whole life, so yeah. We grew up three blocks from each other,” the father of eight said at WE tv’s Real Love: Reality TV’s Past, Present and Future panel on Dec. 11, 2018. “Her sister used to babysit me.”
Conrad also has children of her own
Conrad has met Gosselin’s children over the years and is a mother herself. She has two kids, one son and one daughter, and they have each met Jon’s twins and sextuplets. In fact, that’s them posing in the above photo with Hannah and Colin.
Conrad is a nurse practitioner
Conrad went to college at Penn State University and worked as a registered nurse for years. However, she decided to go back to school to become a nurse practitioner. She attended Drexel University in Philadelphia and when she graduated in 2017 Gosselin congratulated her on Instagram.
“Congratulations honey, Masters in Nursing and Nurse Practitioner,” he captioned a photo of the pair smiling together on her big day.
Are wedding bells in their future?
So are these two thinking about walking down the aisle anytime soon?
“I’ve been with Colleen for four years now and when it comes to marriage I’ve thought about it, yeah — talked about it,” Gosselin revealed.
However, he wasn’t willing to give any more details at the WE tv panel but urged fans to check out his Instagram page to get updates on their romance.
“Just look at my Instagram,” he said. “That’s how stories get out anyway, I guess. It’s so funny.”
We’re guessing that means if he does pop the question we’ll find out via his social media accounts first.
