The pair still seems head over heels for each other, too. Marie recently posted a photo of herself hugging her hubby with the caption, "on vacation with my sweetheart." So cute!

Marie has quite a brood! She shares one son with Steve named Stephen, who was born during their first three-year marriage. Marie had two biological kids with Brian named Rachael and Matthew, and they also adopted five children: Jessica, Michael (who sadly took his own life at just 18 years old), Brandon, Brianna, and Abigail. Today, all of Marie's kids are relatively private people living normal lives. The singer also has three grandchildren.
Did Marie Osmond win Dancing With the Stars?
Marie competed on the fifth season of Dancing With the Stars in 2007, but unfortunately she didn't win. She definitely held her own, though! She came in third place, and made a huge splash when she actually passed out after one performance! Luckily she was okay, she simply said she "forgot to breathe."
When is Marie Osmond's birthday?
Marie just recently rang in her 58th birthday on Oct. 13, 2017. She celebrated by going on vacation with her husband and thanking friends for their kind wishes.
Who are Marie Osmond's parents and siblings?
Marie's parents were Olive May and George Virl Osmond. The Utah couple raised their nine kids in the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The whole family was involved in showbiz, except for her brothers Virl and Tom, who were born deaf. Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, and Jimmy Osmond were all performers, but Donny was most famous for being a pop heartthrob and singing duets with Marie. Sadly, Olive died in 2004 and George passed away in 2007, just days before he was supposed to join his entire family (including his 55 grandkids and 48 great-grandkids) on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Author Sheri L Dew once said, "Few of us will reach our potential without the nurturing of both the mother who bore us and the mothers who bear with us." My Mom did bear nine children but she had a way of making each of us feel as if we were her favorite and the only child in the world who was important to her. And let me tell you, she was not only adorable but she always knew how to break the ice and make us laugh during a hard day's work. I remember some of my favorite times with her were when I was working to try to memorize all those original Donny & Marie shows. (350 pages of script in 2 1/2 days)😜 My mom would come into my room and bring me a banana for potassium and try and help me. At times I would feel so overwhelmed but she always found a way to laugh me through it. We'd get so silly… she taught me I could laugh myself through anything!!! ❤️ I love her for that! She was charitable and endured long suffering when her children faced illnesses, fears or personal challenges. Olive Osmond was kind, never easily provoked, not puffed up or envied other women. She knew she was a daughter of God and taught me, her daughter, my worth as a woman to a loving Heavenly Father. She is everything Paul talked about in 1st Corinthians 13 and had the pure love of Christ. I realize that I am so blessed to have had such a nurturing and highly-organized Mom and my heart goes out to those who might not have been raised in the same type of environment as I was during their childhood. This is a different generation and in today's world we face various challenges that never existed for our mothers previously. We find ourselves striving to balancing motherhood and having to make a living. Life is tougher now than ever. I do know your struggles and I salute you beautiful and dedicated women for all that you go through daily to make ends meet… Go to my Facebook @ MarieOsmond for the rest of my #MothersDay Sunday message. Tell me about your favorite female figure and I would love if you'd post her photo. I love and pay a tribute to you all on this #MothersDay! So true isn't it, that God could not be everywhere, so therefore he created Mothers, Aunts & Mothers-at-Heart!
