UPI News Service, 07/20/2015
Jon Gosselin and new girlfriend Colleen Conrad were spotted together over the weekend.
The 38-year-old former reality star and Conrad were seen holding hands as they took a casual stroll Friday. Although Gosselin has yet to address the relationship, he lists himself as a "father of 8, brother, son, [and] boyfriend" on his Twitter profile.
Gosselin and Conrad both hail from Wyomissing, Pa., and reportedly grew up together. The couple are said to have reconnected nine months ago, and lived together for the past eight. Conrad is a registered nurse and case manager at Reading Hospital.
"They ran into each other after years of not seeing each other and instantly reconnected," a source told Us Weekly. The insider said Conrad has met Gosselin's eight children and has two kids of her own from a previous relationship.
Gosselin and ex-wife Kate Gosselin came to fame on TLC reality series "Jon & Kate Plus 8," which was renamed "Kate Plus 8" after their divorce in 2009. The former couple are parents to 14-year-old twins Cara and Maddy and 10-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel and Leah.
Gosselin now works as a DJ and told People he is loving his new career in January. Kate Gosselin continues to appear on "Kate Plus 8," and was last linked to Dreamstime COO Jeff Prescott.
The reality star said the five years since she divorced Gosselin have been the "best" of her life on a TV special in June.
