Jon Gosselin resurfaces in rare Instagram photo with his parents as he battles ex Kate over custody of their eight kids

JON Gosselin resurfaced in a rare, new photo with his parents to celebrate his mom’s birthday on Tuesday.

The 44-year-old Jon & Kate Plus 8 alum was all smiles with his family, despite his nasty custody battle with his ex-wife Kate over the kids.

Jon wore a nice, button-down shirt while out to dinner and drinks with his parents.

They smiled as they had someone in the restaurant take a family picture of them together, with the scene captured in the large mirror behind them.

The father-of-eight wrote in the caption: “Happy Birthday Mom!!! We have had some times!!! 

“Thank you for everything!!! Love you!!! Cheers 🥂 to many more awesome times!!!”

Later, Jon shared his brother Tom’s birthday tribute to their mom in his Instagram Story, as well.

Tom posted a picture of him and his mom cheesing for the camera, both in a pair of sunglasses.

“Happy Birthday to this rock! So grateful to have a mom who has always been steady and loving,” he penned alongside the snap. “Even when my life was a bit of a whirlwind I could always count on you.” 

Jon’s brother continued: “I still call my mom everyday. My advice to all is to cherish your parents and don’t waste any moments. 

“Love you mom. Thank you and happy birthday.”

Earlier this year, Jon had a health scare after contracting Covid and needing to be hospitalized.

Jon's girlfriend, Colleen Conrad's daughter, Jordan, had to take him to the hospital when he had a 104.8 degree fever.

He was struggling to breathe and feeling like he was going to faint.

A source said that the ex reality star is "physically much better" now.

Jon told Dr. Oz: “I was in a wheelchair. I had to wait in the ER. It was packed, like, the hospital was full and then they put me on a gurney and put me in the hallway in the waiting room, so I could get a temporary room."

“Then I just remember sleeping and it was just surreal," he added.

“Like, ‘What?’ I didn’t even realize why I was there until, like, three days later.”

Following a long social media hiatus, he returned to Instagram to promote his DJ gigs earlier this week.

Kate and Jon have had a nasty custody and divorce battle since ending their marriage in 2009 after 20 years together. 

After years of back and forth court fights, the co-parents currently split which of their kids live with which parent, as six of the eight are under 18.

Jon claimed his six estranged kids – Aaden, Alexis, Leah, Joel, Madelyn and Cara – did not reach out when he fell ill earlier this year.
