The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star, Jon Gosselin’s wish is for all of his kids to just take time to be together. Jon shared his true feelings in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight. During the interview, he talked about his relationship with his eight kids and sent a message to the ones who no longer speak to him and currently live with Kate.
Where are Jon Gosselin’s kids?
Currently, only two of the sextuplets, Hannah and Collin, live with Jon. Leah, Joel, Alexis, and Aaden still live with his ex-wife, Kate. The older 19-year-old twins, Mady and Cara, are away at college not living with either of their parents. Previously, they lived with Kate.
Sadly, Jon revealed that he hasn’t really spoken with his other children who don’t live with him. In the exclusive interview with ET Jon stated, “My wish is that all my kids would just be together, like, hang out together,” he shared.
He went on to say that he and Kate, former Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom, honestly live very close to one another, and the kids even run into each other on occasion. Both families live in a small town with few major stores. He and his kids will awkwardly wave at one another and try not to make a big fuss out of their meetings.
He then explained that he is not stopping is children from seeing each other, but he “can’t speak for the other side.”
Jon’s Gosselin’s message to his other kids
Jon went on to admit he and Kate do not talk. And he has no idea how his other four children feel about seeing their siblings. But he went on to give this message to the other four sextuplets who live with Kate.
“Leah, Aaden, Joel and Alexis, I love you. You’re welcome to come over, call Hannah, Collin…I don’t know what’s holding you up. I don’t know what the ill will is, but if you watch or don’t watch or see it on the internet, I love you, happy birthday. Sorry I have to go through media channels. I know no one likes that or whatever, but it’s kinda hard to reach out to you. But anyway, good luck and hopefully you call, or call Hannah, and you can walk to my house. It’s all good.”
The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad wrapped things up by sharing that his older daughters Mady and Cara haven’t talked to him in “six years or seven years.” He has tried to just give them space and he hopes one day as adults they’ll want to renew their relationship. Jon even went on to hopefully say they will all come together again one day. He speculates that reunion could possibly be at one of the older daughters’ weddings.
