“Jon and Kate Plus 8’s” Jon Gosselin Talks Potential Marriage To Girlfriend Colleen Conrad


It’s been nearly ten years since Jon and Kate Gosselin were divorced while immersed in the spotlight of the much-loved TLC realist show Jon and Kate Plus 8. And while the years since the divorce has been filled with the entire family getting used to a whole new life, it has also brought a brand new relationship for Jon. And yes, he is thinking of getting married again.

“I’ve been with (girlfriend) Colleen (Conrad) for four years now,” he told reporters at WE TV’s Real Love: Relationship Reality TV’s Past, Present & Future panel on Tuesday (Dec. 11.)  “I’ve thought about it, yeah — talked about it. She’s driven. I’ve known Colleen my whole life. We grew up three blocks from each other. Her sister used to babysit me.”

When asked when he might pop the question, he answered quickly and firmly.

“Just look at my Instagram,” he said. “That’s how stories get out anyway, I guess. It’s so funny.”

During the event, Jon also confirmed that he has been awarded temporary sole custody of him and Kate’s son Collin, who has been dealing with his share of challenges throughout his life. In fact, he has been living away from his family to attend a program for special needs.
