Hannah Gosselin, Jon and Kate’s daughter, is opening up to ET about living with her father and the status of her mother’s relationship as she approaches her 18th birthday.
On Tuesday, ET’s Kevin Frazier sat down with Jon and Hannah to discuss Hannah’s decision to leave her mother’s house and away from her four younger siblings.
“I feel like I made the decision to live with my father on my own. My father and I have always been closer, and we’ve always had a fantastic relationship “Hannah expressed herself. “Growing up in a busy family with multiple children is a lot. And you don’t have a one-on-one relationship with your parent in terms of attention. I had the impression that my father paid attention to me and that I had a nice solid relationship with him.”
Hannah and her brother Collin have been living with Jon full-time since August 2021, while the other four sextuplets, Leah, Joel, Alexis, and Aaden, have been living with Kate. Jon and Kate have twin daughters, Cara and Madelyn, who are 21 and away at college.
“Leaving my siblings was a difficult decision because I didn’t want to be apart from them or even live in a new household,” Hannah added. “But I simply felt treated unfairly in my mother’s house, and I just wanted to live with my father.” Hannah claims she still communicates with her mother on a regular basis and is “very convinced she’s doing OK.”
“We don’t really talk about things like, ‘Oh, how’s your life going?’ ‘Oh, how’s your day?’ it’s more like day-to-day. But I’m confident she’s doing OK “Hannah remarked. “I’m sure my siblings are doing OK as well.”
Hannah turned 18 on May 10th, and she claims to have received a birthday message from her mother. “She just wished me a happy birthday, you know. You know, she texted me to tell me she loved me, and it was amazing “she reveals.
Her siblings who don’t live with her also wished each other a happy birthday, she revealed.
“I absolutely miss my siblings,” she says. “I mean, we all have the same birthday, and it is a huge day for all of us. They texted me happy birthday as soon as I awoke, and I responded with a happy birthday SMS.”
