Colleen Conrad and Jon Gosselin have been dating for about nine months now. They've been living together for eight. So who is this new woman in Jon Gosselin's life? How does she fit with the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star and his eight offspring?
There's nothing particularly remarkable about Colleen Conrad. She's not a reality show star. In fact, she's not involved in the entertainment industry at all. She's not a millionaire like Kate Gosselin's boyfriend Jeff Prescott.
Here are five things that she is, however.
1. Colleen Conrad is a registered nurse.
2. She was a childhood friend. Jon Gosselin and Colleen Conrad grew up together in Wyommissing, Pennsylvania.
3. She is a divorced mom of two teenagers.
4. Colleen Conrad supports Jon Gosselin's work as a DJ.
5. She has yet to meet Kate Gosselin.

Jon and Kate Gosselin have been divorced since late in 2009. They are parents to twins Mady and Cara, who are 14, as well as 11-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis, and Hannah. Colleen Conrad has met all of Jon Gosselin's children.
Jon Gosselin and Colleen Conrad were spotted in public recently, and unabashedly showed their affection for one another. The two were seen walking down the street holding hands.
Do you think Jon Gosselin has become responsible enough to maintain a relationship? He was known for a while following his split from Kate Gosselin as a serial dater. He had many girlfriends but none of his relationships lasted for very long.
Maybe Colleen Conrad has what it takes to convince Jon Gosselin to settle down again.
Do you remember what line of work Kate Gosselin was in before she had the sextuplets? That's right. She was a registered nurse.
Might history soon repeat itself for Jon Gosselin or is Colleen Conrad's profession nothing but coincidence?
