Jon – who reportedly stopped paying child support in 2012 – only had custody of two of his eight children, Hannah and Collin, and he said he’s ‘worked really hard in building independence in’ them.

‘100 percent, I miss my siblings. It’s a big day for all of us today,’ Hannah gushed to ET.

‘As soon as I woke up they had texted me happy birthday and I sent them a happy birthday text back.’

And while ‘there has been alienation because of Kate,’ Gosselin publicly wished his six estranged children happy birthday.

As for why Hannah chose to live with Jon in Pennsylvania rather than the 47-year-old nurse in North Carolina, she said that she’s ‘always been closer with my dad and we’ve always had a strong good relationship.’

‘It’s a lot, growing up in a very busy household with lots of kids. And there’s not really a one-on-one relationship, for attention, that you have with your parent. I felt like my dad gave me that attention and a feeling like I had a good solid relationship with a parent,’ the former child star explained.
