Birthday boy! Donny Osmond took a moment on his special day to give a huge thank you to fans for commemorating his 62nd birthday. In honor of the exciting celebration, the iconic Donny & Marie star took to Instagram and shared a rare photo of his entire family — including wife Debbie Osmond and their massive brood of kids and grandkids.
“Thank you for all of the birthday wishes you’ve sent my way today. As I turn 29 (again 😏), I’m grateful for those of you who have been following my career since the beginning, as well as those of you who are just now discovered who I am,” the hilarious “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” crooner wrote in the caption of his post on Monday, December 9.

I flew home after our show Friday night to cheer for my grandson Dylan at his football game. 🏈 This was their championship game, and guess what… they won! 🎉🎉🎉 Say hello to the Westlake 7th grade high school #FootballChampions. 🏆 Congratulations to my wonderful and cool #grandson Dylan. Bapa loves you.
“It’s been a wonderful birthday — one I’ll never forget,” he sweetly continued. “My favorite birthday gift this year is a holiday season off from performing so that I can spend time with my dear wife and family. I haven’t had that opportunity since 2010. I almost forgot how nice it is to wrap up the year with my loved ones around me. It’s given me time to reflect on how important family and friends really are.”
Along with the caption, Donny shared a gorgeous photo of his and wife Debbie’s five sons, Donald, 40, Jeremy, 38, Brandon, 34, Christopher, 28 and Joshua, 21, as well as their plethora of adorable grandchildren. Fans of the “Crazy Horses” crooner gushed about the doting dad’s sweet words in the comment section of his post.
“Glad you are having a great day with family and friends!. Nothing more precious!” one fan wrote, while another echoed, “Happy Birthday Donny! Have a wonderful day, enjoying well deserved time with your family!” A third Instagram follower chimed in, writing, “Thanks for being the great guy and talented guy that has made us your loyal fans for decades.”
Besides praising his fans for their sweet birthday wishes, Donny also offered a piece of advice. “Although we live in a very busy and often unsettling world, I invite you to intentionally carve out time to slow down this holiday season and express gratitude for life itself and the many beautiful blessings God has given us,” he wrote. “Thank you for all of your kind words and birthday wishes on my social media.”
We hope Donny had the best birthday ever!
