Jon Gosselin won't be winning any father of the year awards in the near future, but for all his many, many faults, the does get credit for making a concerted effort to be a part of his kids' lives, despite constant interference from his notorious ex-wife, Kate Gosselin.
Jon turns 40 this year and he's trying to start a career as a DJ, but he's still a better parent than Kate, which should tell you everything you need to know.
Kate would have us believe that Jon basically ran out on the family, but his social media page tells a different story:
That's Jon with four of his eight kids on New Year's Eve, and there are a few noteworthy things that we'd like to call your attention to here:
1. New Year's is the biggest night of the year for young, in-demand DJs like ya boy Jonny G. Couldn't have been easy for him to pass up all those star studded parties to spend the night at home with his kids.
2. Despite the fact that Kate has consistently depicted him as some unholy hybrid of Alec Baldwin and Joan Crawford, Jon doesn't appear to be abusing or in any way mistreating the kids here.
3. It looks like he only rang in 2017 with half of his kids, but we'll give him a pass, but we're guessing that was the best he could do.
Like some kind of sh-tty King Solomon, Kate would probably rather split the family in half rather than let Jon have all 8 kids on the same day.
Of course, it's possible that the situation is not entirely Kate's fault.
It's been rumored that Jon is only on speaking terms with half his kids, and this pic might be evidence of that.
Making matters worse, in recent weeks, Jon and Kate's con Collin has been in a treatment center for children with "special needs."
It's a move that's generated no small amount of controversy, and it certainly hasn't earned Kate any new fans.
The woman just keeps making Jon look like a caring, competent parent, which is really no easy feat.
You've made us defend Jon freakin' Gosselin, Kate.
And for that, we'll never forgive you.
