Marie Osmond is not letting coronavirus get to her family. She made sure her 32-year-old daughter, Jessica, was alright when she took a quick trip to her home in Arizona with her 17-year-old daughter, Abigail, on Monday, March 16.
“Made a fast trip to make sure Jessica was safe and had food [and] toilet paper,” the Talk cohost wrote via Instagram next to a photo of her and her girls. “All is well driving back home now. Hope you and your loved ones are all doing well too. Abby took this photo before I realized one of the arms from my reading glasses was sticking out of my purse. #familytime #weareinthistogether.”

Made a fast trip to make sure Jessica was safe and had food had toilet paper 🤣 All is well driving back home now. Hope you and your loved ones are all doing well too👍♥️🥰 Abby took this photo before I realized one of the arms from my reading glasses was sticking out of my purse 🤣👓🤦🏻♀️ #familytime #weareinthistogether
Marie’s trip to Jessica’s home comes just two days after she posted a photo of herself having a family game night with her kids and grandkids. In the caption, the “Paper Roses” singer said she was meeting up with her loved ones because it’s a good way to stay connected amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“We are not going to give in to fear during this time … we just won’t! Instead, my wish is that we may find restored faith and find new ways to have fun and make staying at home count for something good,” she said. “We can use this time to connect with each other in new, meaningful ways!”
For the family game night, Marie spent time with one of her granddaughters and her two sons Brandon, 23, and Matt, 20. “Who knew I’d be excited about gaming!” she gushed in the caption, and added that they had a “great” time “laughing together.”

We are not going to give in to fear during this time… we just won’t! Instead, my wish is that we may find restored faith and find new ways to have fun and make staying at home count for something good. We can use this time to connect with each other in new, meaningful ways! Last night, I reconnected with my granddaughter for game night as you see in the video. AND my 20 year old son Matt and 23 year old son Brandon reconnecting playing video games together instead of with friends! Who knew I’d be excited about gaming! 😂 All in all, what a great time we had laughing together! We have been living in a world that was becoming increasingly disconnected. From texting a friend who is in the same room to not really knowing our neighbors, we might be missing opportunities to serve each other. We do have to practice “social distancing,” but that doesn’t mean we have to completely disconnect. There are going to be people who need us, really need us in the coming weeks. People have already lost their jobs, so we can help out with food. In some communities, schools are closed but parents still have to work so we can help with their children. There are the elderly in our neighborhoods that don’t feel comfortable going into a crowded grocery store so we can shop for them. And very importantly we can do all we can to stay healthy so we don’t contribute to the spread of the virus! Let’s use social media for good things… to send jokes, funny memes and heartwarming stories. And above all lets use every opportunity to dispel fear! Don’t you love this? “Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee, yea I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” I think that says it all… let’s not be afraid instead lets have fun and use this time to reconnect with those we love. Starting Monday (tomorrow), @thetalkcbs will be doing re-runs so join me on social media and we can #TALK about the topics online! I will also post more videos and photos about how I am reconnecting with my family and I’d love to see how you’re doing it with yours! #familytime ♥️
Although the night was very fun, Marie didn’t forget about the other members of her family. We wonder if she’s going to visit any of her other kids next? After all, she is a proud mom of eight!
