We all know Marie Osmond is an icon, as she’s received many accolades throughout her career, but her biggest accomplishment is welcoming her children into the world. Daughter Rachael Krueger is one of her eight beloved kids that the Talk star just can’t get enough of.
Rachael was born on August 19, 1989, to her famous mom and her father, Brian Blosil. At the time, the Donny & Marie star was married to her second husband, Brian, whom she tied the knot with in 1986. The 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 her 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 Marie, the Dancing With the Stars alum dished the two couldn’t be anymore alike. In fact, the proud mom exclusively told Closer Weekly that her daughter 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 31st birthday in August 2020, the award-winner entertainer said she couldn’t believe how much her child has grown up.
“Happy 31st birthday to my precious baby girl, Rachael,” she marveled via Instagram at the time. “So what the crap happened? How did you get to be so much older than me?” Marie jokingly added. “I love you so much, my angel!”
The Key is Love author loves spending time with her kids, but she also adores bonding with Rachael’s children, Rocket Jade and Wolf. “#FamilyTime making a healthy snack, @lilys_sweets chocolate covered raspberries with my daughter Rachael and granddaughter Rocket Jade,” she captioned a photo with the two while enjoying a day off at home in March 2020.
Thanks to Rachael, Marie was blessed with one of her favorite roles: being a grandmother.
