(LOS ANGELES) -- Now that TLC has canceled Kate Plus 8, Jon Gosselin says he's "very relieved."
In an interview with RadarOnline, Gosselin, who sired the titular eight children with ex-wife Kate -- and left reality show stardom behind when their Jon & Kate Plus 8 was re-tooled following their divorce -- said, "I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future."
Kate Gosselin, meanwhile, isn't giving up on the spotlight just yet. She spent the night of TLC's announcement re-tweeting messages from the show's fans and pitching daughter Mady to TV producers.
"Aww that Mady... So well spoken! Wants to do MORE tv!!! Disney anyone? Lol," Kate posted.
"I plan on staying on tv :)," she also tweeted, when asked if she would return to her pre-TV career as a nurse.
