It’s National Sibling Day and one of our favorite families is celebrating! In honor of the sweet holiday, Marie Osmond took to Instagram on Wednesday, April 10, to share an epic throwback pic with her brothers from back in the day.
“To my eight amazing brothers, Happy #NationalSiblingsDay!” the she wrote in the caption, adding the hashtag “#FamiliesAreForever.” In the snap the 59-year-old shared from many years ago, she and her brood of brothers — Virl Osmond, 73, Tom Osmond, 71, Alan Osmond 69, Wayne Osmond, 67, Merrill Osmond, 65, Jay Osmond, 63, Donny Osmond, 61, and Jimmy Osmond, 55 — can be seen tightly pictured together in a big embrace as they all flash a smile.
Considering we typically only get glimpses into the lives of Marie and Donny, many fans of the “Paper Roses” singer couldn’t hold back their excitement over the cute throwback with the entire family. “What a great photo Marie! Love how you treasure these exceptional men,” one user wrote in the comment section of Marie’s post. ‘How lucky you are! As an only child, I would have loved siblings. So I made sure my own kids had what I didn’t,” said another.
Although Donny and Marie — who just announced the end of their 11-year Las Vegas residency — have teamed up as entertainers ever since they were young, the rest of the Osmond clan were also passed down the performing genes. In fact, we’ve come to know and love all eight of the Osmond siblings ever since they began singing and dancing their way onto stages and TV screens at a young age.
This past January, Marie revealed who she thinks her most talented brother is while paying a visit to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. “I would not say me,” Marie jokingly said. “They’ve sold like 100 million records, that’s like crazy, right? And I don’t think they were ever honored.”
Marie continued: “My brother Merrill is just … he still has this awesome voice. He’s a rocker and he still sings fantastic. Of course, I think Donny is … average. Donny is very talented,” the Dancing with the Stars alum joked. “They’re all talented in their own way but, man, Merrill’s voice is just still unbelievable.”
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: We can’t get enough of the Osmonds!
