Singer Marie Osmond is spreading so much birthday love! The mom-of-eight took to Instagram this week to wish both her daughter Jessica and her grandson Stephen Jr. a very happy birthday. “Happy Birthday to my wonderful daughter Jessica who is #31. I can’t believe you’re two years older than your mom!” Marie, 59, joked in the caption of Jessica’s post on Monday, Dec. 17.
The next day, the star wrote a sweet message to her grandson on social media “Happy Birthday to our wonderful grandson Stephen Jr. I feel like it was just yesterday your daddy was your age! Love you so, so, so, so much!” Marie wrote to commemorate little Stephen’s fourth birthday on Tuesday, Dec. 18.
It seems like the Osmond family celebrates a different birthday practically every other week — and since Marie has eight children and four grandchildren, there’s clearly a lot of birthday love to go around! Marie, who is married to Stephen Craig, shares son Stephen Craig, Jr., 35, with her hubby. The singer also has kids Jessica, Rachel, 29, Brandon, 22, Brianna, 21, Matthew, 19, and Abigail, 16, with her ex-husband, Brian Blosil. The couple also shared son Michael, who passed away from suicide in 2010.
She may have a huge, loving family, but like everyone else, Marie has experienced pain and setbacks in her life. During a 2016 exclusive interview with Closer Weekly Marie revealed she’s found joy in her life as a doting grandmother. “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-of-three,” Marie shared at the time. “There were difficult things, and yes, there were some negatives. But you can always look towards the negative — and I refuse to do that. I prefer the light.”

These adorable people are my grandchildren, and this is the first photo taken of me with all four of them. ♥️ Let’s just say that getting everyone to look at the camera was an impossibility! #GoodAsItGets 🤣😂🤣 We did our Thanksgiving celebration a few days early and then the day after took them to the Nutcracker movie. Nothing makes me happier or brings me more peace than being with them because they are a constant reminder of what is truly important in my life. Being a grandma to these precious children is the most remarkable feeling, I love it!!! 😍 • I am so grateful for them and for all the other blessings in my life. Although I have made mistakes as everyone has, I have tried to rebound from each one filled with more knowledge which gives me greater hope. I believe the main reason I have been able to bounce back or stay resilient with my mistakes is because of the basic things my sweet Mother taught me. • Nothing is more gratifying than finding peace with your family, friends and loved ones. After all… tiz the season of peace. 😊🎄 Read more about how to find this peace on my Facebook page and marieosmond.com/sundaymessage
Luckily for Marie, things are only getting brighter as she’s now a new grandmother to four cute grandkids, Stephen Jr., Rocket Jade, 3, Christian, 2, and Maxwell, 7 weeks. “Being a grandma to these precious children is the most remarkable feeling, I love it! I am so grateful for them and for all the other blessings in my life,” Marie recently captioned the first Instagram photo of her posing with all four of her adorable grandchildren. Too cute!
