Introduced to cameras at just 2-years-old, sextuplet “Jon & Kate Plus 8” Collin Gosselin has ambitions that go beyond the obvious.
“I’m looking at the Marine Corps. I’ve always wanted to be a Marine. So I think that’s the next step…I have a lot of dreams, a lot of goals – I mean number,” he told Entertainment Tonight. He hopes to enter in the spring of next year.
Life is now a constant cycle of school, work, and friends for Gosselin, he says, after being sent to a Behavioral Health Institute by his mother, Kate. His father, Jon, removed Gosselin from the institution and got custody of him in 2018.
“The biggest misconception about me is that I’m incapable…or that I’m still kind of hung up on the things I’ve been through, because I’m not,” Gosselin told a statement that follows.
