Jon and Kate Gosselin have called a truce for Thanksgiving.
Jon and Kate have agreed that she will have their kids on Thanksgiving while Jon and his girlfriend Ellen Ross will have them on an alternate day.
“They have not got to the stage where they could spend the actual day together yet but they are putting their kids first,” a source said. “Nothing has been settled for Christmas yet but it could be a similar arrangement.”
Jon seems to have gotten his life back on track since he started dating Ellen Ross this past spring.
The 24-year-old Pennsylvania government worker will be helping Jon celebrate Thanksgiving with his kids a day later. Ross has hit it off with his children and seems to have brought a sense of stability to his love life after he went through a series of ill-fated relationships.
The amicable relationship between Kate and Jon is much welcomed, after reports of their children acting out and even being expelled from school.
Two of Jon and Kate Gosselin’s six-year-olds have been expelled from their private Pennsylvania school, apparently due to behavioral problems like bullying and rage.
Last month, Jon used his Twitter account to express his feelings after his attempt to block his kids from appearing on TLC’s Kate Plus 8 in court failed.
“I am acutely aware of the mistakes I made in 2009 and I am ashamed of the choices I made,” Jon wrote. “I have apologized to Kate, my family, and to my friends. Through counseling I have learned to own my actions. My goal is to move forward in a positive direction.
“The negative effects on my family was my greatest concern and far outweigh any monetary gain we received. Today, my children are much older than when we first started. They are acutely aware their life is markedly different from their peers.”
