Jon Gosselin, former star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, is in love! A year after his divorce from Kate Gosselin, the single father of eight is thrilled to be in a relationship with 23-year old Ellen Ross. Keep reading for more details on the couple’s budding romance and why Jon loves that Ellen views him as “normal.”

Jon Gosselin may no longer have a marriage to Kate Gosselin, custody of his eight children, or his own reality show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, but he has found love. The reality star says he’s happy and in love with new girlfriend, Ellen Ross. The couple met on a blind date and have been enjoying an easy, normal relationship every since. ”We just kind of hit it off, backyard barbeques in Pennsylvania, hanging out, good times,” Jon said. “She knew of me and all that stuff [and still] saw me as a normal person.”

Jon Gosselin says the new relationship is quite a contrast from his previous relationships. Viewers of Jon & Kate Plus 8 saw the bickering and strain on his marriage to Kate Gosselin before the couple officially decided to call it quits in the spring of 2009. Jon says the relationship with Ellen is ”really different for me.” He added, “It’s like a comfort zone.”

Despite rumors that Ellen doesn’t like children, Jon says she’s done a great job connecting with his eight kids. ”You have to find ways to occupy the time, especially when it rains!” he said. “One day, I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, what are we going to do?’ So she got Monopoly, board games.”

Although Jon is used to public criticism, especially after starring in Jon & Kate Plus 8, he hopes to keep his new relationship under the radar. “I have a hard time talking about my personal life because of everything that happened last year,” Jon says. “I just stray away from it. We just want to be left alone.”

    This is exactly why Jon should never have custody of the kids, and should have very limited visitation when he takes the kids out of their home. He has no idea what to do with them. Obviously his strategy at the kids house is to just tell them to “go outside and play” or something similar. He has no idea how to actually interact with him. The pictures of him “taking care of the kids” at the kids house show Jon talking on his cell phone, ignoring the kids, or talking to the press, ignoring the kids. As much as he complained about Kate controlling things, if Kate had not taken charge, there would never have been anything going on which involved the parents and the kids doing the same thing.
