Good luck! TLC fans have watched Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin‘s kids grow up literally right before their eyes on camera. From Jon & Kate Plus 8 to Kate Plus 8, viewers have followed their journey from Kate’s pregnancy to giving birth to the sextuplets, to Jon and Kate’s nasty divorce and Kate raising her eight kids alone as a single mom. But now, the sextuplets are headed off to eighth grade, and Jon shared a first day of school picture of his daughter Hannah all by herself — fueling rumors that Jon has custody of only one of his kids that he shares with Kate.

“Congrats Hannah on your first day of school, proud of you,” Jon wrote in the caption. “I admire your bravery starting fresh!!! I Love you very much and we have worked really hard to get here. Dedication has really paid off. I’m so happy you integrated yourself into the community, you made friends all summer and now you will grow and graduate with them. I’m honored to be your father!!! Love you, Dad #newbeginnings.”

Jon also added another hint that could prove that Hannah is living with him full-time. He said that he admired his daughter’s “bravery” for “starting fresh,” which would make sense that she would have to start over at a new school if she moved away from her mom’s house to her dad’s. 

It was also curious that Hannah did not appear in the back to school photo that Kate shared on her Instagram. Kate famously has eight kids, but only six of them were featured in the photo, seemingly proving that Hannah did not join her siblings that day. The other child missing from the shot was Hannah’s brother Collin, who has been enrolled in a special needs program since 2016 and is rarely seen in photos taken at family gatherings.
