Too cute! It is no surprise at all to see that Donny Osmond is completely nuts about his wife, Debbie — and he proved that once again by sharing a lovely message on their 41st anniversary.
“Happy 41st #anniversary to my sweetheart, Debbie. The best decision I ever made was to share my life and heart with you,” the 61-year-old captioned numerous wedding photos on Instagram. He added, “#MyBetterHalf #ForeverInLove.”
Fans were giddy and took to the comments section to share nothing but positive reactions. “Happy Anniversary! I remember that day! You are a true testament to a successful and loving marriage!” one person said. “Oh I so had plans to marry you!! My little friends and I planned that when we were 21 that was what WE were going to do. SILLY. little kids. Congrats on your 41st,” another nostalgic user added.
The loving pair tied the knot back in May 1978. Today, they share five kids — Donald, 39, Jeremy, 37, Brandon, 34, Christopher, 28, and Joshua, 21. They also have ten grandchildren! However, while the couple have been married over four decades, the singer’s father, George Osmond, didn’t exactly approve of the duo’s love because he believed if his son pursued a relationship with Debbie it would hurt his career.
“While the world knew me as a teen idol, and the Osmonds fame was at its height, I began secretly dating Debbie Glenn. By the time I was 19, I knew I was in love and had to do something right for me. When I told my dad, he said, ‘Well, there goes your career, but this is ushering in your personal life,’” the legendary performer once revealed to The Guardian. However, “My dad was right about my career after I got married. But Debbie is an amazing person to be with. If I hadn’t married her, I’d have been a mess. Now I had someone who understood me and with whom I could build a future together.” So lovely!
We are certainly glad to see this perfect couple celebrate 41 years! How about another 41, Donny?
