Dad Jon Gosselin is loving having two of his eight children with him full-time now.

In December 2018, as Dearly previously reported, a Pennsylvania judge awarded Jon temporary full and physical custody of one of his and Kate’s sons, Collin Gosselin.

According to reports, Kate never showed up to the hearing because she allegedly believed it was postponed until a later date.

Jon said of his ex-wife’s absence:

“That’s her. I would never… I would always go to court, no matter what.”

As Kate opened up in a 2016 interview with People, she made the solo decision to put Collin in a treatment program after he was reportedly diagnosed with special needs.

However, while Kate never went into what Collin’s specific special needs were, Jon recently revealed on Instagram that his son is neither autistic nor does he have special needs.

He wrote:

He is not on any spectrum or special needs.

Now, over two years after Collin was sent to an undisclosed treatment center, he has since moved in with Jon and his twin sister Hannah.

The 14-year-old was able to celebrate Christmas:

And ring in the New Year with his dad and his dad’s girlfriend:

Kate has yet to respond to the judge’s decision to award Jon temporary custody. She has also remained silent on all social media fronts.
