There aren’t many things in life that make Marie Osmond as happy as her grandchildren. Out of all the awards and accolades she’s taken home over the course of her Hollywood career, nothing compares to the joy she feels as the grandmother of her eight grandkids.
The “Paper Roses” singer’s little ones consist of Stephen, Rocket Jade, Christian, Maxwell, Maude, Wolf, Mabel and the newest addition, Olive. Whether they’re hanging at home or enjoying an outing together, Marie said she loves to do just about “anything” for her beloved grandbabies.
“They’ll want to go miniature golfing or my little granddaughter wants to just color, or they’ll make fake food in their kitchen and we’ll eat it,” Marie exclusively shared with Closer Weekly while talking about their favorite activities to do as a family. “Whatever it is, [I’ll do it].”
The Donny and Marie alum truly can’t believe how quickly her little ones are growing up. “Just to see them start to love life and achieve … they’re just so precious. I love them so much,” she gushed to Closer in October 2019.
Considering the Christmas Edition actress adores her role as a grandma, she couldn’t be more thrilled now that her eighth grandchild is here. Olive’s arrival comes less than six months after the former Dancing With the Stars contestant revealed her eldest son, Stephen, and his wife, Claire, were expecting their fourth child.
Following the announcement, the Key is Love author — who is also the mom of Jessica, Rachael, Brandon, Brianna, Matthew, Abigail and late son Michael — dished her son and his spouse were gearing up to welcome a baby girl.
“So my darling daughter-in-law Claire just announced this so I can finally share! In a couple weeks … after three boys … Claire will be having a girl!!!!!” the Goin’ Coconuts alum penned in her March 2021 post, which included pics of the pregnant mama and her sons, Stephen, Christian and Maxwell.
While Marie is jumping for joy over the little one’s arrival, she’s all about juggling her attention when it comes to her older grandbabies. Although the Talk alum has been social distancing from her family amid the coronavirus pandemic, she’s come up with different ways to keep in touch with her children and grandchildren.
“We’ll take our motorhome and we’ll go see the kids,” Marie exclusively told Closer in January 2021. “We’ll stay outside in their driveways so we don’t invade their homes.”
Nothing gets in the way of this grandma!
