We’re pretty certain that you know all about Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond. But did you know that they have a few more siblings? And “a few” is probably an understatement as Donny and Marie have seven other famous brothers!
Donny and Marie, as well as their siblings Virl Osmond, Tom Osmond, Alan Osmond, Merrill Osmond, Wayne Osmond, Jay Osmond and Jimmy Osmond, were all raised by parents Olive Osmond and George Osmond. The proud mom and dad were married in 1944 and remained a pair until Olive’s death in 2004. George sadly died just three years later in 2007.
As fans of the iconic Osmond clan know, Donny and Marie reached mainstream fame with their 1976 variety series Donny & Marie, but they weren’t the only ones in the family that went the music route.
In fact, way before Donny had a hit TV show, he joined the barbershop quartet known as The Osmond Brothers, which also included his brothers Alan, Merrill, Wayne, Jay and Jimmy.
Although the Osmond siblings went their separates ways in their careers as they got older, the beloved brood stayed closer than ever. Marie’s brothers even praised her for being such an amazing sister while growing up alongside seven boys.
“I think the greatest compliment I can give my sister is that she’s so much like our mother. She’s not only a wonderful wife but she’s a great mother to her kids and a wonderful grandmother,” Jay gushed in video tribute in honor of Marie’s 60th birthday on The Talk in October 2019.
Alan echoed his brother’s sentiments, marveling, “She cares and loves others. She’s always giving to others before giving to herself.” He sweetly added, “She brought in a sense of class and beauty to our family and she is the jewel on top of the tree.”
The beloved TV host proved she loves her brothers just as much as she once shared a sweet throwback of their family in honor of National Siblings Day. “To my eight amazing brothers, Happy #NationalSiblingsDay!” Marie captioned a snap via Instagram, adding the hashtag “#FamiliesAreForever.”
