JON Gossellin left fans concerned about troubled son Collin, 17, after he shared a photo from a recent family road trip featuring only daughter Hannah.
The photo showed the proud dad, 44, and his teenage daughter smiling for the camera.
He captioned the post: “Hello sunny La! We made it safe.”
Fans flooded the comments, many sharing compliments for the pair while others had questions about Collin.
One commenter wrote: “Where’s Collin?” to which another replied, “lol. None of ur beeswax.”
Another respondent suggested: “maybe he is in the backseat.”
A third replied: “living life, being a teen,” with a shrugging person emoji.
Collin was noticeably absent from not only that Instagram post, but Jon’s Instagram Stories about the trip as well.
The trip comes amid strife in the Gosselin family, as Jon earlier revealed that Hannah — estranged from many of her siblings and Kate Gosselin — does not miss her mom.
Jon teased the father-daughter trip in an Instagram Story post, which showed Hannah’s luggage at what looked to be an airport.
The photo also showed their feet with Hannah sporting white sneakers and Jon wearing tan oxfords.
He captioned the post: “Going back to Cali. (In my LL Cool J voice) lol.”
Jon shared another picture on his Instagram story that showed him standing before an empty trunk with Hannah smiling from the front seat and turning to look at him.
“You ready?” he wrote, with an arrow pointing from his daughter to several suitcases.
Hours later, he shared the photo of himself and Hannah smiling together, revealing that they’d reached their destination.
Fans couldn’t help but compliment Hannah, though many were shocked at how grown up she looked.
One commenter wrote: “She is not that grown up omg no she’s not.
“Crazy I still pictured her as a little girl.”
Another wrote: “Awww she’s so grown now! Beautiful young lady!”
A third fan added: “Beautiful Hannah.. seems like only yesterday she was a baby. Safe travels enjoy.”
Many fans wondered why Jon and Hannah were visiting California, asking questions like if they planned to “visit Disneyland” or attend a BTS concert set to take place in the coming days.
REHASHING THE PAST
The sweet family trip comes after Jon’s appearance on Dr. Oz’s show, where he opened up about his past and discussed the current state of his family.
He also shared with viewers how Hannah, who is caught in the middle of it all, feels about the drama.
Jon admitted on the show that he hasn’t “spoken to my twins in eight years,” adding: “I text them every single year.”
He said that Hannah has “been snubbed by her brothers” but has had contact with her sisters.
Hannah is estranged from her mother too, and prefers it that way according to Jon.
Asked if his daughter misses her mother, Jon replied: “No, I know that. She feels a little bit slighted from what things have transpired.
“I know she misses Leah and Alexis. She’s been snubbed by her brothers, so I don’t know what’s going on with that.”
He went on to reveal that Hannah recently visited with some of her siblings as they passed through Pennsylvania, where he and Hannah currently live.
Jon revealed: “Hannah talked to them and they visited the county near where we live now and Hannah had dinner with them ’cause Maddie goes to school in upstate New York.”
He confirmed that Collin didn’t attend.
During the same interview, Jon shared with Dr. Oz that Collin “enlisted in the service,” adding that he will either graduate early or hang around for another year.
He added: “He wants to go in the reserves, he’s choosing between the army and the marines. He scored really well on his testing for the army.”
Kate and Jon have had a contentious relationship since they split in 2009 after two decades together.
The pair divorced after several court appearances. They currently split where their kids live.
Four of their 17-year-old sextuplets — Aaden, Joel, Alexis, and Leah — live in North Carolina with Kate.
The other two children, Hannah and Collin, live with their father.
Children Mady and Cara are not involved in the custody case as they are legally adults and are in college.
