The death of basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, a proud "Girl Dad," left a mark on all the fathers. Former reality TV star Jon Gosselin was one of them and shared a sweet photo with her daughter.


Gosselin uploaded a photo of him and his daughter, Hannah, on Instagram. The picture shows him carrying her with all smiles in their home in Reading, Pennsylvania, with a caption "#Girldad."

The television personality posted it to honor the late basketball athlete who also lost his 13-year-old daughter Gianna in the same tragedy.

Gosselin, who was born and raised in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania as the middle child in a family of three children, felt touched by how Bryant loved his daughters when he was alive.

The hashtag "Girldad" became a social media trend after ESPN anchor Elle Duncan shared her conversation with the NBA legend before his tragic death.

The meaning behind the trend had deeply moved Gosselin. According to Duncan, she was told by Bryant that he was a proud father of girls.



The encounter left Duncan teary-eyed. Gosselin's photo, meanwhile, raked heartfelt comments from several Instagram users.

They were pleased to see him and daughter Hannah in a lovely picture. "Truly happy for you all!!" one fan said. "Love seeing this. This is so cute," another fan commented.

Gosselin was slowly getting into a better bond with his eight children. It wasn't a piece of cake as his relationship with his ex-wife, Kate, has yet to be fixed as they had a "turbulent relationship."



According to Pop Culture, he also admitted that his last meeting with her and the rest of the children was "not good."

They shared a reality television show in TLC called "Jin and Kate Plus 8." But their relationship grew toxic, which affected their show. As reported by TV Shows Ace:

"After a toxic divorce, a serious tussle with TLC over contracts, the show renewed without Jon."

The outlet added that it's now called "Kate Plus 8" and that Gosselin just got his gag order lifted and he's not scared to discuss Kate's parenting.

Gosselin and Kate, 43, were married for a decade until they parted ways in 2009. After the pair split up, both were granted physical custody of their 14-year-old sextuplets and twins Cara and Mady.

The two met at a company picnic on October 5, 1997, and tied the knot on June 12, 1999. Their twin daughters were born on October 8, 2000.

On May 10, 2004, the pair welcomed their sextuplets: sons Aaden Jonathan, Collin Thomas, and Joel Kevin, and daughters Alexis Faith, Hannah Joy, and Leah Hope.
