We can’t believe they’re already 13! Kids grow up SO FAST!
Not to be outdone, dad Jon Gosselin and girlfriend Colleen Conrad celebrated on Monday with a party at his house.
“I had four of them: Hannah, Leah, Joel and Aaden… I cooked burgers and hot dogs on the grill and we did presents and played football in the backyard. After that, we did cake and ice cream… It was good.”
Other than this special occasion, the DJ regularly sees his kids “once a week for dinner and every other weekend.” He also posted the following on Insta the next day.

Happy birthday Gosselin kids! In three years, y’all will be able to drive!!
