Happy Birthday, Jon Gosselin! You're 34 Today, April 1!

Jon has stepped away from the spotlight and is strictly focused on the well-being of his eight kids.

After a whirlwind couple of years, Jon Gosselin has decided that all the media attention isn’t what he, or his kids, need right now. And although he can’t take his kids away from Kate Gosselin and her TLC show, Kate Plus 8, he has learned to separate himself and has ditched his reality star status to be a construction worker.

Coincidentally, Kate just celebrated her 36th birthday on Monday… and that’s no April Fool’s joke. It would have been nice if the Gosselins could have put aside their drama and celebrated their special days together with all eight of their kids — twins, Cara and Mady, 10, and sextuplets, Hannah, Collin, Leah, Joel, Alexis and Aaden, 6.

Do you think Kate will let the kids spend the weekend with Jon?
