Collin Gosselin took to Instagram on Sunday, May 10, to make a post in honor of Mother's Day. However, instead of paying tribute to his birth mother Kate Gosselin, he honored his father Jon Gosselin's longtime girlfriend, Colleen Conrad. In the sweet post, the 16-year-old gushed with gratitude for Conrad who he says stepped up as the new mother figure in his life, according to Us Weekly.
In the photo, Collin smiles while he puts an arm around Conrad, whom his father has been dating since 2015. Throughout his emotional caption, Collin made it clear that he no longer views his birth mother Kate as a motherly figure but rather looks to Conrad for guidance.
"Turns out today is Mother's Day, today we pay love forward to our mothers, but I don't think mother can describe all the things Colleen has done for me. Yes a mother clothes her children and cooks for them but it's the best feeling when your mother or mother figure is one of your best friends and always has your back, the one who always shares that laugh of the humor only you guys get. I could call it Mother's Day, but it's more than that, Colleen, you are so much more than a mother to me, you are one of my guidelines and one of my guiding lights."
