In Touch Weekly says Jon Gosselin is engaged
On Monday I blogged about a People magazine story that said Jon Gosselin would be involved in a new children’s line. Now comes word that the father of eight is engaged. Here’s the e-blast I just received from In Touch Weekly. (Looks like the lovebirds been doing some serious shopping, too.)
Less than a month after separating from his wife, an insider close to Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin says Jon has proposed to his new girlfriend, 22-year-old Hailey Glassman! “Jon has been telling everyone that he loves her and she loves him, so why waste time?” says the insider, adding that Jon presented Hailey with a $180,000 engagement ring designed by Edouard Nahum — featuring a skull surrounded by four black diamonds — during a romantic getaway to St. Tropez on July 12.
“They started dating two months ago and they both just knew the other was the one instantly.” The couple was in the French Riviera to meet with Ed Hardy clothing designer Christian Audigier, who tells In Touch, “We had a great time.” The two stayed in a $2,000-a-night room at the Chateau de la Messardiere, drank champagne and ate lobster after an afternoon on Christian’s yacht, and went shopping in Antibes. Christian helped them celebrate their engagement on July 13. “They all went out to the V.I.P Room nightclub in St. Tropez after dinner,” says another source close to the group. “Hailey was flashing her ring around and they were kissing and hugging.”
Although they’ve only been together for a few months, Jon has already spoiled Hailey with the trip to the South of France, fancy dinners and shopping sprees at malls near her hometown of New City, N.Y. In early July, Jon took Hailey for sushi at Yama Ya, and to Wally’s Ice Cream Parlor for dessert. In June, Jon and Hailey were spotted at the True Religion store at Garden State Plaza mall, where he dropped $1,000. “He made a big purchase,” a witness confirms to In Touch. And at Neiman Marcus, Jon “bought a bracelet,” an employee adds. Says the college friend, “I think she’s with him to use his money. No doubt in my mind.” Money isn’t the only reason she might be attracted to Jon. “Hailey is fame-hungry,” the college friend says. “She auditioned for The Real World. I’m not surprised she’s with someone in the public eye.” And though Jon has often complained about the pitfalls of fame, none of that seems to matter to him. During their celebratory night in St. Tropez, the source says the happy couple started to plan their wedding. “Jon said to Hailey: ‘Why don’t we get married in Vegas?’ and she squealed ‘yes!’” says the insider. “They are already talking about staying in the Venetian Hotel on their wedding night and what sort of dress she’ll wear.” The pair even asked Christian’s best friend to be a witness at the ceremony.
