It sounds like Marie Osmond is spending her upcoming Mother’s Day the best way possible — surrounded by her eight children and four grandkids! The “Paper Roses” singer recently opened up about how she plans to celebrate with her loving family this Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 12.
“I have to have my grandkids with me, OK? I have four and two on the way, so I’m super excited!” the 59-year-old beauty gushed to Daily Mail. “Sometimes we’ll celebrate early or after so they can have their own celebrations, and sometimes we’ll celebrate all together.” Marie jokingly added, “Whatever it is, I have to have my grandkids with me, OK?”

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
The Dancing With The Stars alum is the proud mama to three biological and five adopted kids. After welcoming her first child, son Stephen James Craig, with husband Stephen Craig in 1983, she then welcomed her other two kids, Rachael Blosil and Matthew Blosil, with her second husband, Brian Bosil, following a divorce with Stephen.
Marie and Brian then happily welcomed five adopted children — Jessica Blosil, Michael Blosil, Brandon Blosil, Brianna Blosil and Abigail Blosil — into their family. Following a divorce with Brian, Marie rewed her first husband, Stephen, in 2011.
Since then, the couple have been living a beautiful life of wedded bliss. Although Marie has faced many trials and tribulations throughout her life — her first son Michael sadly passed away in 2010 at the age of 18 —the Donny & Marie star couldn’t be more thankful for her close-knit family.
“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,” Marie said in an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly in 2016. “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.”
We love you, Marie!
