They grew up as two of the worlds’ biggest teen idols and now, decades later, Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond are still two of the most beloved celebs in Hollywood! Years ago, the two rose to fame as a beloved brother-sister singing duo and, in what seemed like the blink of an eye, they’ve now turned into worldwide superstars.
Their show, Donny & Marie, first aired back in 1976 and made them the youngest entertainers in television history to host their own hit variety show. Now, almost 40 years later, Donny, 61, and Marie, 59, are juggling their lives as parents, siblings, partners and entertainers.

Today marks exactly 10 years of entertaining @flamingovegas with my partner in crime, @marieosmond. Thank you for traveling from far and wide to see the show and making our #Vegas residency so much fun. We have the greatest audiences in the world, and nothing motivates us more than all of you. I can't help but feel your support every night when we walk onto the stage. We’re so lucky to have an incredible crew who works tirelessly to make this such a successful show. We couldn’t do it without them. Here's to an incredible 11th year of shows at our home away from home! #DonnyandMarie #FlamingoVegas #VivaLasVegas #10years
Performing shows around the world while also headlining their Las Vegas residency at the Flamingo hotel and casino sounds like a lot, but not for Donny and Marie. The pair has effortlessly mastered their busy schedules, and though they might only really see each other at showtime, they’re still closer than ever. “We can finish each other’s sentences and we know what each other’s thinking, but we never see eye-to-eye. That’s our chemistry: it’s toxic,” Marie exclusively told Closer Weekly in early January.
The mom-of-eight also wasn’t afraid to admit that they don’t always agree on everything. “We are very different people. He loves everything organized and structured, while I like to breathe within the structure of the show,” Marie revealed. “I’m always throwing a curveball at him. He goes crazy and it makes me laugh so I keep doing it.” We love their sibling relationship!
