Jon Gosselin and his former wife Kate of Dancing With The Stars fame had eight children together.
But the veteran Jon & Kate Plus 8 is only close to two of his children: Hannha and Collin, who live with him and his girlfriend in Pennsylvania.
“My other kids, we’re not really communicating at the moment, but Hannah and Collin live with me,” said the 43-year-old reality TV star Entertainment tonight on Sunday.
Sad situation: Jon Gosselin and his ex-wife Kate had eight children together. But the veteran Jon & Kate Plus 8 is only close to two of his children: Hannha and Collin, who live with him and his girlfriend in Pennsylvania
But he says he is all about family reunification. “I’m not going to stop them from getting together,” added the prep chef.
‘[Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden] don’t talk to me, but they talk to Hannah, ”he added.
“I’m not interfering with what the kids now … it’s what the kids want to do.
“If they don’t want to talk to me, that’s fine, as long as they support their brothers and sisters. Ultimately, if they come over and want to talk to me, that’s cool. ‘
Two on the go: Collin and his sister Hannah live with Jon in Pennsylvania, while the other four sextuplets and their older twin siblings live with Kate
Jon and Kate had twins Madelyn and Cara, 19, in 2000.
They then had sextuplets Aaden, Leah, Alexis, Hannah, Joel and Collin, 16.
They broke up in 2009 and the exes got full custody.
In February 2018, Hannah moved to her father’s house.
And in December 2018, Collin left the special needs home he lived in and moved in with Dad. Jon said Hannah wanted her brother home.

Jon also told the site that he wants to talk to his six other children.
“It doesn’t have to be a love dove. Like, “How are you doing? Where are you going to study?” Call me for advice. ‘
He added that his last group visit with all eight children was “fleeting”: “There was just … a lot going on. Like enforced custody and all that. ‘
And he said he just doesn’t talk to Kate, “It’s like that person no longer exists.”
Kate took to Instagram last week to wish her 16-year-old kids a happy birthday. The 45-year-old Pennsylvania resident also has 19-year-old twins Madelyn and Cara.

It was also Mother’s Day on Sunday.
Collin shared a glowing Instagram post in honor of his dad’s girlfriend Colleen Conrad – and nothing for his mom Kate.
The former reality star shared the post on Sunday that Colleen was credited as a “great mom figure” and one of his “best friends.”
The post arrived after Jon, 43, claimed that Kate mentally tortured their son before sending him away to a special needs facility when he was just 11 in an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV.
Ouch: Jon Gosselin’s son Collin, 16, shared a touching tribute to his father’s girlfriend Collen Conrad for Mother’s Day that his mother Kate Gosselin seemed to be obscured by omission
“Turns out it’s Mother’s Day today, today we’re paying love to our moms, but I don’t think Mom can describe everything Colleen did for me,” Collin began.
“Yes, a mom dresses her kids and cooks for them, but it’s the best feeling if your mom or mom is one of your best friends and always has your back, the one who always shares that laugh with the humor only you get.
“I could call it Mother’s Day, but it’s more than that, Colleen, you’re so much more than a mom to me, you’re one of my guidelines and one of my guiding lights,” he continued.
“Thank you is not saying enough, I love you so much and you have done so much for me that you claim my strong, happy, loving and wonderful mother figure, you are irreplaceable. Thank you so much Colleen loves you so much !!! ❤️❤️. ‘
Sent: Collin joined Jon, 43 in 2018, after Kate, 45, placed him in a special needs setting for three years due to common ADHD
The exuberant praise for Colleen, a registered nurse who has been dating Jon since 2014, seemed to criticize Kate for omitting.
Jon has previously delved into his son’s history with his mother, who sent him to a special needs facility when he wasn’t suffering from anything more serious than regular ADHD.
The reality star claimed that Kate was “narcissistic and selfish” in his interview with DailyMailTV last year.
“She always speaks for the children. They say this, they want to do this – unicorns, rainbows and gazes, flying pigs. They are all lies. They all have votes. ‘
Jon claimed that while Collin was “locked up” in this institution for three years, his mother only visited him three times for less than two hours in total, and declined to tell Jon where Collin was being held.
His son came to live with Jon after writing to him a letter from the boarding house begging him to take him home.
“I told Mom I wanted to live with you, she said no. Yet? She cannot choose me. I am old enough now, I am YOUR son, not hers. She mistreated me after I left your house. Sorry. Take this to court, because… you are my father, my savior, ”he scribbled in chalk.
