He’s smitten! Jon Gosselin took to Instagram to share how enamored he is by girlfriend Colleen Conrad. The mushy photo posted on Sunday, October 13, comes in the throes of the 42-year-old’s drama with ex-wife Kate Gosselin.

“Last night’s date night pic!!! I Love this woman!!!” Jon captioned the image of his arm around his lady. The couple was all smiles as they hit the town. The sweet sentiment is one of many the reality star posts in honor of his ladylove. Not long ago, Jon celebrated the end of summer with a collage of fun times with Colleen and two of his eight children — Collin and Hannah, 15. “Summer 2019 we had some great memories with family and friends, Love you all!!!!” he wrote on the snap.

Back in December 2018, Jon said he might be ready to take things to the next level. “I’ve been with Colleen for four years now,” Jon said during WE tv’s Real Love: Relationship Reality TV’s Past, Present & Future panel, adding that they’ve been discussing marriage. “I’ve thought about it, yeah — talked about it.”

As for Jon’s relationship with his ex, things are a lot less picturesque. Recently, Jon unleashed his wrath for Kate, 44, to DailyMailTV in a jaw-dropping interview.  He accused the mom of eight of being a “militant” now that his decade-long gag order is up. “Kate is not doing the shows for her family, Kate is doing it for herself,” he said to the outlet. “She’s narcissistic and selfish. That’s it. Period. All of this is for her.” He also alleged that she was abusive to their children and even forced their son Collin to attend a social needs institution, although he did not suffer from a medical condition.

Since the explosive interview, sources told In Touch exclusively that Kate is shaking in her boots. “Friends say Kate just doesn’t want to open up any old wounds, but some say she’s afraid that Jon, now that his gag order has been lifted, might be up to something,” the insider said. “She’s afraid that Jon might get another show, which he’s been pushing for, and that Hannah, and Collin, might start talking. About what? Kate says she doesn’t know, but of course she does,” the source added. Although things might be rocky with Jon’s former flame, we are happy to see he’s thriving in his current relationship.
