We all know Marie Osmond is a music icon, having received countless accolades throughout her career. But when it comes to the beautiful family she created, the Talk alum’s biggest accomplishment is welcoming her kids into the world. Of her eight beloved children, Marie is proud to be the mom of her daughter Rachael Krueger.
Rachael was born on August 19, 1989, to her mom and father, Brian Blosil. At the time, the Donny & Marie star was married to her second husband, with whom she tied the knot in 1986. The former couple adopted their younger kids, Jessica, Michael Bryan, Brandon, Brianna, Matthew and Abigail, throughout the years of their marriage, but they called it quits after nearly two decades in 2007.
The “Paper Roses” songstress — who also shares her eldest son, Stephen, with husband Steve Craig — may be one of Hollywood’s most iconic stars, but Rachael didn’t aspire to follow in Marie’s famous footsteps. Aside from her work as a costume designer, the brunette beauty is a talented hairstylist.
Although Rachael isn’t singing and dancing on stages all across the world like her mom, Marie dished the two couldn’t be any more alike. In fact, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant exclusively told Closer that her kiddo is her ultimate mini-me.
“My daughter Rachael and I are very similar in a lot of ways,” she sweetly revealed in October 2019. “She has that same personality that I have where she wants to know and do everything.”
Considering the mother-daughter duo share an unbreakable bond, it’s no surprise Marie is always gushing over Rachael on social media. In honor of the young adult’s birthday in August 2021, the award-winning entertainer said she couldn’t believe how much her child has grown up.
“Happy 32nd Birthday to my amazing daughter,” the doting mom penned alongside a baby photo of Rachael. “Where does time go?!!!! I love you soooo much angel.”
In addition to spending time with her beautiful girl, Marie adores whenever she’s around Rachael’s children, Rocket Jade and Wolf. During her chat with Closer, the Goin’ Coconuts alum said she’ll do just about “anything” for her sweet 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,” she gushed while talking about their favorite activities to do as a family. “Whatever it is, [I’ll do it].”
Thanks to Rachael, Marie was blessed with one of her favorite roles: being a grandmother.
