The former reality star couldn’t hold back a huge smile as he posed with his girlfriend of four years, Colleen Conrad, and 14-year-old kids Collin and Hannah. In the second snapshot on his Instagram, Colleen and Collin huddle close together with Jon for a fun selfie. “HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2019 Here we come!!!” he captioned the post. Both Hannah and Collin live with Jon. The father of eight told reporters in December that he got temporary sole custody of Collin after the boy spent more than two years living away from his family in a program for children with special needs. He said he’s not in contact with the rest of his children with ex-wife Kate Gosselin: 14-year-old Aaden, Alexis, Leah and Joel and 18-year-old twins Madelyn and Cara.

But the Gosselins announced their divorce in June 2009, and Jon left the series. PEOPLE confirmed in November that Jon, 41, and his attorney submitted papers to a Pennsylvania court on Oct. 24 requesting that Collin live with him, a decision he claimed would be in Collin’s “best interest.” In November, Kate, 43, and her lawyer reportedly did not show up to court after her request to postpone the hearing was denied. Kate previously told PEOPLE that she made the difficult decision to enroll her son in the program in order to help him reach his full potential. Jon Gosselin, girlfriend Colleen and son Collin.
