The gang’s all here! Er, sort of. While Jon Gosselin may not have spent New Year’s Eve with all of his kids, he did have Hannah and Collin by his side. The former Jon and Kate Plus 8 star was all smiles with his arms wrapped around them in a new pic with his girlfriend, Colleen Conrad.
“HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2019 Here we come!!!” the proud dad gushed.
It’s safe to say Jon has a lot to look forward to in the new year after scoring several wins in court against his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin. Earlier this year, he shared on Instagram that Hannah “permanently lives” with him, hinting that he has full custody of his daughter. And on Dec. 4, a judge ruled in his favor when it came to temporary custody of Collin.
“He won!” a source revealed at the time to Radar Online, who was first to break the news. “He looked very serious but calm. He looked like he had just one thing on his mind: To get custody of Collin.”
Just last month, the 41-year-old revealed that 2018 would be the first year he would have his kids for the holidays. “I never had major holidays with my kids,” the former reality star told Life & Style magazine at WE tv’s Real Love: Relationship Reality TV’s Past, Present & Future panel on Dec. 11 in LA. “I always shared it with Kate and got them after the fact.”
And it sounds like 2019 is going to be the year of Jon. A source recently told the mag that his court victory is “just the beginning.” They added, “He’s very patient and will do whatever it takes to get custody of as many of his kids as he can. He’s really serious about it.”
