With nine Osmond siblings, it’s no surprise that something is always going on within Marie Osmond‘s famous family. But the last year has sadly brought a slew of health scares for the Osmond clan and, in a new interview, Marie looked back on her family’s “crazy year” and revealed her brother Jimmy Osmond is “doing ok” after his recent stroke.
“My brother Jimmy is doing ok, he had a stroke. It’s been a crazy year for my family,” Marie, 59, told host Andy Cohen while appearing on his Bravo show Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, Jan. 8. “My brother [Tom Osmond] had a quadruple bypass [surgery], my brother Virl [Osmond] had a stroke, Jimmy had a stroke, Donny [Osmond] had shoulder surgery. [Jimmy] is doing ok, we’re praying for him.”
Jimmy, 55, suffered a stroke on Dec. 27 after performing as Captain Hook in Peter Pan at the Birmingham Hippodrome in England. “On the evening of Thursday, Dec. 27 after pushing through the evening’s performance of Peter Pan at Birmingham Hippodrome, Jimmy Osmond was driven straight to [the] hospital and diagnosed with a stroke. He is grateful for all the well wishes and will be taking time out in the new year,” his spokesperson told the Daily Mail at the time.
Following the unfortunate event, several of Jimmy’s famous siblings took to social media to express their love for their brother. “Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers on behalf of my little brother. Jimmy, I love you, brother,” Donny wrote on Twitter with Marie similarly tweeting, “Prayers for my brother Jimmy.”
Just a few days after Jimmy’s stroke, Donny revealed via Instagram that he’d undergone surgery on his shoulder after suffering a dancing injury. “Turns out dancing accidents aren’t so convenient after all. I’m home after a successful shoulder surgery and settling in for some serious #RestandRecovery.
My only complaint about the day: my doctor gave me the cold shoulder,” he captioned a pic of himself showing off his bandaged arm in a sling.
