Marie Osmond celebrated her daughter Rachael Krueger‘s 31st birthday by sharing a touching tribute on social media. The beloved Talk star gushed over her “angel” as the brunette beauty rang in another trip around the sun.
“Happy 31st birthday to my precious baby girl, Rachael,” the 60-year-old beauty marveled via Instagram on Wednesday, August 19. “So what the crap happened? How did you get to be so much older than me?” she jokingly added. “I love you so much, my angel!”
Alongside her heartwarming words, Marie shared the cutest throwback photo of Rachael and her two older siblings, Stephen Craig and Jessica Blosil. The “Paper Roses” songstress also uploaded stunning snapshots from a photoshoot of the birthday girl and her husband, Gabriel Krueger, whom Rachael tied the knot with in 2012.
Aside from Rachael, Stephen, 37, and Jess, 32, the Donny & Marie star is also the loving mom of kids Brandon Blosil, 23, Brianna Schwep, 22, Matthew Blosil, 21, Abigail Blosil, 17, and late son Michael. Marie shares her eldest son, Stephen, with her husband, Steve Craig, and the rest of her children with her ex-husband, Brian Blosil.
Although the Key is Love author adores each and every one of her kiddos, Marie said she shares a special bond with Rachael. In fact, the Dancing With the Stars alum said the young adult is her ultimate mini-me.
“My daughter Rachael and I are very similar in a lot of ways,” she exclusively told Closer Weekly in October 2019. “She has that same personality that I have where she wants to know and do everything. She’s never satisfied.”
Not only does Marie adore spending time with Rachael and her longtime hubby, but she couldn’t be happier about being the grandma of her daughter’s two kids. Rachael and Gabriel welcomed their eldest daughter, Rocket Jade, in August 2015, followed by their youngest son, Wolf, in July 2019.
“Out of all the awards and accolades that I have been blessed with throughout my life, nothing comes close in comparison with the blessings I receive from being a mother to my eight children and [a] grandma,” she once gushed to Closer. Marie also shared some wise words from her late mom, Olive Osmond.
“She said, ‘You know that you are successful when you can honestly say that you are a happy grandma. That means that your children love you, that you have put family first and that your grandbabies love you,’” she recalled. “I can say that I am a happy mother and a happy grandma.”
We hope Rachael has the best birthday!
