Passion might as well be Donny Osmond‘s middle name. Not only is the “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” singer a passionate performer, but he’s also a devoted believer of faith as well as a loving father and grandpa to his 10 grandchildren.
In a sweet Instagram post, the 61-year-old opened up about his faith while sharing a super cute photo with two of his grandkids on Sunday, April 7. “Many of you ask me questions about my faith,” Donny wrote in the caption. “In an effort to avoid coming across as a religious zealot, I generally only share my beliefs at church, in personal conversations, or on the My Beliefs sections of my website.”
In the pic that Donny shared, the entertainer can be seen snuggling on the couch with two of his grandsons. Fans of the handsome hunk couldn’t help but gush about the adorable bonding moment. “This picture is the epitome of what a member of The Church of Jesus Christ is all about! Listening to our prophet while snuggling with grandchildren,” one user wrote in the comment section of Donny’s post. “I LOVE this photo! Aren’t grandchildren the best?” said another.
From a very young age, Donny has lived an extraordinary life as a teen idol and singer. But a lot has changed since the days that he and his sister Marie Osmond — who recently announced the end of their 11-year Las Vegas Residency — were starring in their classic 1976 variety show, Donny & Marie.
After marrying his longtime wife, Debbie Osmond, in a romantic ceremony in 1978, the two lovebirds became the parents to their five sons — Donald Clark Osmond, Jr., 39, Jeremy James Osmond, 37, Brandon Michael Osmond, 33, Christopher Glenn Osmond, 28, and Joshua Davis Osmond, 20.
While there’s no doubt that Donny is a devoted dad and grandfather, the Dancing With The Stars alum has admitted that his wife has been their family’s anchor throughout all the fame.
“I am particularly grateful that my dear Debbie has been able to be home with our children and has been such a powerful and uplifting influence on each one of our family. Especially in her great support of me in my crazy career that takes me away from the home so much,” Donny revealed to Third Hour in 2014, adding that Debbie and their sons have “always been the core of my life.”
We love the Osmonds!
