When the eight Gosselin children spend Christmas afternoon with dad Jon this year, it’s possible they won’t be the only ones there. Jon seems pretty serious about his girlfriend Ellen Ross – and mom Kate is reportedly livid about having this new woman in her children’s life.
A source tells Hollybaby.com that the kids are wild about their father’s new love interest. “Kate’s kids are starting to ask about Ellen and talk about her to Kate,” says the anonymous tipster. “They think Ellen is so funny, and they ask Kate if their dad is going to marry Ellen.”
This doesn’t sit well with Kate, who reportedly isn’t ready to have a new mother figure in her octet’s life.
“Kate can’t stand that the kids like Ellen,” says the source. “Kate wants the kids to not think of Ellen as a stepmother; it drives Kate crazy. Kate doesn’t like the kids getting close to her and she refuses to accept Ellen.”
If Kate is eating herself alive with jealousy, she’s not letting it show to her fans. According to her Twitter post today, she’s keeping crazy-busy: “wrapped, did yoga, ran for 40 min on treadmill and now I’m back to Christmas stuff…Oh my…Racing the clock!”
But it may be a different story if Jon and Ellen’s relationship reaches the next level. (Anyone want to place bets on the odds of a televised Jon and Ellen Plus 8 wedding?) That’s something Kate will have to deal with, like it or not – and her reaction will reflect on her kids as well as on her.
