“My newest grandson was born as the fireworks were going off last night for the #FourthOfJuly celebrations!” the singer, 59, gushed on Instagram alongside a photo showing her with the baby next to Rachel’s first child. “#RocketJade is excited to be a big sister and the Krueger family of four are all happy & well. @CMNHospitals are the best!!”
Fans of course were elated for the family, as they took to the comments section to respond. “Awe I love it! Congrats! So special! Love you guys!” one person wrote. Another added, “Congrats Krueger family and GlamMa @marieosmond and Steve [Craig] on being grandparents again! Can’t wait to hear the little man’s name. Rocket 🚀 Jade will be a wonderful big sister!”

I absolutely love this picture, look at my sweet husband and darling grandkids, and now we have two more on the way! It’s so thrilling but I have to be honest with you, when I looked at this picture I thought, “where has time gone? Wasn’t it yesterday these sweet little ones were my own children?” I’m so thrilled my kids are married to wonderful people and have started families of their own, there’s no greater joy on earth… But… Where did the time go? Time is something we talk about ALL THE TIME! For instance: Do you have time? What time is it? Let’s make time. I don’t have time right now. Time is of the essence. It’s time to go! It’s about time! Time’s up! There’s more… but what I do know about time is God gave ALL of us the same amount of minutes in every hour. Those minutes are the same no matter if you’re at work, cleaning the house or sitting through a movie… but they can sure feel different, don’t they? I certainly can’t slow time down (believe me I’ve wished for it) but I can do things that will make my time more meaningful… and I want to stress this as strongly as I can, you do not have to do huge things to have meaningful experiences with other people! There were many times the Savior changed someone’s life just by giving people a “moment” of His time. He was never in a hurry when it came to ministering to people. His apostles sometimes tried to keep him moving on to the next place but the Savior knew something very important about time… it was His to give. He could offer people very little in the way of material things, but he did have time, and He gave it freely!

The legendary performer is no stranger to having kids around, as she is a mother to eight of her own —Stephen, Rachael, Matthew, Jessica, Michael, Brandon, Brianna, and Abigail. There’s more love where that came from! Aside from her newest grandson and Rocket Jade, Marie is also a grandmother to her son Stephen’s three children —Stephen Jr., 5, Christian, 3, and Maxwell, 8 months.
It has been quite the last couple of weeks for Donny Osmond‘s sister — her daughter Jessica tied the knot with her partner Sara earlier this month. “I’m so glad I got to fly in for the day to be apart of such a happy occasion!” the hitmaker wrote alongside photos of the pair making it official. “I could not love the two of you more! Welcome to our family!”
With a family so large, we can only expect that more good things will be down the pipeline. More importantly, Marie and her family just added more joy to the group!
