Collin Gosselin's Relationship With Mother 

Collin Gosselin didn't soften his wording when he said on his time on reality TV. The preceding Jon & Kate Plus 8 star revealed why he thinks growing up in front of cameras skint his loved ones and whether he would like to mend his relationship with his mom, Kate.

He wants to believe it was due to TV and what being in people's eyes does to a family. He thinks it tore us apart, Collin, a minor at the time of filming, told Entertainment Tonight. It gave them less time to be together as a fam and more time to be in people's eyes.

The First Decade of Childhood

The Gosselin sextuplets became clan names when TLC (formerly Discovery Health) recorded their birth and the first decapod of their childhood on TV.

As the children grew older, fans also saw the unravelling of the marriage between Jon and Kate. The pair, who are also parents to 22-year-old twins Mady and Cara, separated and left each other in 2009, after which the movie ran under the name Kate Plus 8 until 2017.

Relationship With Mom 

Collin, 18 years old, is now living with Jon, 45 years old. The kiddo said his relationship with his mom changed after he was sent to a live-in teaching facility to address his behaviour issues.

"After being there, he didn't have a relationship with her," Collin said of Kate, 47. "Even before being there, he doesn't think we had much of a relationship, and he thinks that just kept tearing it even more down."

He added, "It's unfortunate that they didn't have a relationship. He thinks every son wants to have a relationship with their mom. But I'm doing very well."

The Relationship With Kate 

When asked if he would still accept an affinity with Kate, Collin said, "Yes, it would be ideal." Jon got full guardianship of Collin in December 2018 when Kate and her licit team did not show up to an audience.

This past May, some resources reported that Hannah, another sextuplet, also lives with Jon and Collin.

The Stable Relationship 

Hannah told the sources she still has a relationship with her mom: Her relationship with her mom is pretty stable. Like, they text each other and call each other on average."

The remaining four Gosselin sextuplets, Leah, Joel, Alexis and Aaden, live with their mother.
