WINK News is learning that dreams come true. Gould reunited with his son for the first time in 15 years through FaceTime.

Donnie is a recent high school grad and was just 3 years old the last time he saw his father.

Donnie was thankful to finally reconnect with his father, but didn’t want to meet in person just yet.

Gould will enter rehab this week. He has struggled with drug and alcohol problems in the past, but says his son is the motivation he needs to get better.
