Family affair! Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond were joined by some familiar faces as they were recently honored by the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. During the ceremony, fans of the brother-sister duo noticed they had the loving support of their older brother Alan Osmond, who was all smiles as he cheered them on from the crowd.
The 70-year-old, best known as a member of their family’s former musical group, The Osmonds, seemed happier than ever as he joined the iconic duo for their ceremony in Las Vegas on Friday, October 4. At the prestigious event, Donny and Marie received their own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars.
As the performing pair unveiled their star marker and gave speeches, Alan supported his brother and sister from the sidelines. Despite him being in a motorized wheelchair, he appeared to be in incredible spirits as he was spotted smiling ear to ear throughout the ceremony.
As fans of the Osmonds know, Alan has been battling multiple sclerosis for a number of years now. In fact, the music video director’s son, David Osmond, also suffers from multiple sclerosis (MS). Although he was wheelchair-bound, Alan seemed to be having a great time alongside his famous siblings.
Earlier this year, Marie opened up about her family’s overwhelming 2018 and got candid her brothers’ slew of health issues. While making an appearance on Watch What Happens Live in January, the “Paper Roses” songstress told host Andy Cohen how their iconic clan is holding up.
“My brother Jimmy is doing ok, he had a stroke. It’s been a crazy year for my family,” the 59-year-old — who is also the sister of Virl Osmond, 73, Tom Osmond, 71, Wayne Osmond, 68, Merrill Osmond, 66, Jay Osmond, 64, and Jimmy Osmond, 56 — admitted at the time. “My brother Tom had a quadruple bypass [surgery], my brother Virl had a stroke, Jimmy had a stroke, Donny had shoulder surgery.”
It’s no surprise that Marie is so concerned with her brothers’ health scares considering how close the Osmonds are. During a recent interview with Closer Weekly, The Talk cohost opened up about her bond with Donny and gushed over their enviable relationship.
We hope to see Alan out and about again soon!
