Collin shared two photos in his social media slideshow: the first being a picture of the father-son duo smiling in front of their front door, the second being a selfie of the two.
Jon welcomed Collin in 2004 along with his sextuplet siblings, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Hannah, with his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin. Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden live with their mother and older twin sisters, Mady and Cara, who are now attending college. While Jon has custody of Hannah and Collin.
Last December, Jon told Us Weekly that he hasn’t seen all eight of his children together in a year. Their last meeting “was not good,” he admitted at the time, adding “It was just volatile and a lot going on. It was just not a good time. Like, forced custody and all that kind of stuff.”
As for Kate, she is self-isolating with her six kids amid the ongoing public health and safety situation – and Mady joked about how they’re all driving each other crazy.
“When you’re home for 6 months … you and your mom are going to fight,” she captioned a TikTok video with Kate.
In a separate TikTok, Mady added, “If I had a nickel for every time my college shut down unexpectedly and made everyone go home during my freshman year.”
