“I am doing great, moving on with my life, focusing on my kids and my businesses,” Jon told Star magazine exclusively. “I’m in a much better place in my life … right now, I’m just hanging out with friends, meeting new people and trying to focus on my kids.
“Being a single dad with no interruptions has really brought me closer to my children: I really feel being a single dad has improved my self-awareness and well-being.”
Jon said his eight children are flourishing.
“They know that I love them, and I know that they love me, and it’s really important that they enjoy their childhood,” he said. “The break hasn’t affected them at all, because I always made sure that I am the constant in their life.”
Jon said that despite being unlucky in love at times, he’s still got the idea of getting re-married in the back of his mind, but won’t rush down the altar until he’s 100 percent confident.
“I still have a lot of work to do on myself, and I am an extremely busy person, between work and the children,” the Pennsylvania native told Star. “My family is the most important thing in my life. I will strive to make it better for them every day.”
Meanwhile, as RadarOnline.com previously reported, Jon’s ex-wife, Kate Gosselin is opening up about her lack of a love life, claiming she is “so lonely” but sharing that she’s not sure she’s ready for dating just yet.
“I’m so lonely. I clean up the house, put the kids to bed and there I sit. Ideally I would find that person…I don’t know if I feel ready for that,” she told Dr. Drew.
