Jon Gosselin and Colleen Conrad have been dating quietly for the past nine months, and sources say that their relationship is going well. According to Us Weekly, the 38-year-old father of eight has known Colleen Conrad for many years, but the two recently reconnected, and have been an item for quite some time.
“They ran into each other after years of not seeing each other and instantly reconnected,” shared a source.

While Jon Gosselin works as a DJ, Colleen Conrad works as a registered nurse, which is what his ex-wife Kate Gosselin did before she was TV-famous (Perhaps JG has a type?). Conrad, a Penn State graduate, has two children of her own, a son and a daughter from a previous relationship. Her two teenagers have reportedly already met Jon and his eight children.
According to Fox News, Jon and Colleen recently stepped out together, which is what tipped the media off. The two were spotted smiling and holding hands on Friday. Fox also reports that Jon and Colleen have been living together for much of their relationship, and that Colleen is in complete support of her boyfriend’s new “career” as a DJ.
“The former IT analyst — who also waited tables at one point post his TLC days — DJ’d at the First Annual White Affair at club Building 24 in Wyommissing on Saturday, alongside three other DJs. Fittingly, he goes under the moniker ‘DJ JG.’ According to an eyewitness, Colleen was present, and the two showed more PDA — hugging and kissing — in the DJ booth.”
Jon Gosselin’s DJ gig has been working out for him so far. He says that he’s paid $250 an hour, and that he works at least one night a week.
While Jon Gosselin and Colleen Conrad’s relationship seems to be quite serious, there is always chatter about Jon, his ex-wife, and the couple’s children. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there were some reports that Jon wanted custody of at least one of his children, but nothing has come of those rumors.
“Jon’s priority is what is best for the kids… [He will] fight for them. Jon is currently not commenting on the situation. His focus remains on his children,” said Gosselin’s attorney, Kristen Doleva-Lecher, earlier this year.
Do you think Jon Gosselin will end up getting remarried? Do you think Colleen Conrad is the right woman for him?
