Kate Gosselin is reportedly dating a millionaire. So who is this guy who is brave enough to date a woman (and not just any woman, either--Kate Gosselin--who is known for being very outspoken and wanting things to go her way) with eight children?

His name is Jeff Prescott. The 51-year-old is COO and co-founder of Dreamstine, a microstock photography agency. He has three children from a previous marriage.

"Jeff and Kate have known each other for over a year," a source tells Us Weekly about the new romance. "They like each other."

"Jeff is a really, really good guy," another source adds. "He is very respectful of Kate and her family."

Jeff Prescott has yet to meet Kate Gosselin's kids--14-year-old twins Cara and Madelyn, and 10-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel--however he reportedly bought them Christmas gifts. Now that's a way to endear oneself to a group of teens and pre-teens. Who doesn't enjoy gifts from a millionaire?

Kate Gosselin was, of course, married to Jon Gosselin for ten years. The couple--and their ample brood--starred in Jon and Kate Plus 8 on TLC. Their split was far from amicable.

"I don't have a relationship with Kate. There is no relationship. Text and email. That's it," John told ET last fall about Kate Gosselin, when he explained why he wasn't currently paying any child support for his eight kids. "[Kate and I] both support [the children] financially because she takes care of school and all that stuff, but I take care of the exact same things she takes care of. I buy their own groceries, they have their own groceries at my house, their own bedrooms, their own stuff, it's doubled."

"He lives his own life," Kate also told ET last September about the current status of their relationship. " I'm my kids' sole supporter, and I'm supporting them and concerned about their safety, and he lives his own life."

Clearly the way Kate Gosselin talks about her ex hasn't scared Jeff Prescott away. It will be very interesting to see exactly where this relationship goes. Kate long implied that she didn't have time for dating, unless the right man was to come along. Has he now arrived?

Have you been watching Kate Gosselin on Celebrity Apprentice this season? One can only hope she puts more effort into her relationship with this millionaire than she puts into her tasks on the show.
