Reality TV dad Jon Gosselin ditched wife Kate on her birthday so he could guzzle beer and have a steamy getaway with his gal pal, according a report.
"I went out to Utah for, like, five days," Jon said in an episode of "Jon & Kate Plus 8."
"I just wanted to get back out there and ride with my friends. It just happened to fall on Kate's birthday."
Jon was spotted with gal pal Deanna at the Pond Skimming race at the Spring Gruv festival in Park City, Utah. He later cozied up to the school teacher from Pennsylvania at the Downstairs bar, the magazine reported.
"It was snuggle-o-matic," a snitch told the magazine.
Jon reportedly stopped by a jewelry store but never made a purchase.
"Hey, it's Kate's birthday," Jon told a pal, according to the magazine. "I should get her something."
Jon was first linked to Deanna after the pair met at a bar in Pennsylvania and began buying each other $3 shots. Both have denied any hanky-panky.
Kate spent her birthday at the couple's sprawling $1.1 million home in Wernersville, Pa., where she took her eight kids to Charm City Cakes and had a slice of lemon birthday cake.
