When the Osmond brothers first started making songs, a lot of people fell in love with them almost right away. They became famous quickly, topped the charts, and became fan favourites. The Osmondmania was caused by the crowds of screaming fans who were looking forward to each of the Osmonds’ new song, album, and show.
When Donny Osmond, the youngest brother, went out on his own, people fell in love with the sweet boy’s charm. Over the years, Donny’s fame only grew.
When he first went on stage, he was only five years old. The best thing about him and his work is that they are still going strong.
Debbie, a girl who was 15 when Donny met her when he was 16, has been his wife for over 40 years.
At the time, Donny thought that because he was so famous, he should keep their relationship a secret, so they didn’t tell anyone about it for three and a half years.
“I dated her secretly for three and a half years because I didn’t want Tiger Beat [magazine] to find out,” he said on the Drew Barrymore show.
“Once word “””got out that I got married”, though…
“And maybe some of you [in the crowd] did this. I won’t hold it against you”.
“The fans burned Donny Osmond’s records and wrote Debbie the meanest letters” they could think of.
“She is this sweet little girl from Montana. She is the most amazing woman and saved my life.”
When they agreed to get married, Donny’s father was worried that it would hurt his son’s career.
In 2017, Donny told The Guardian that when he was 20 and told his dad he was going to marry Debbie Glenn, his dad said, “Well, there goes your career, but this is the start of your personal life.”
He was a famous person known all over the world, and Debbie was just a regular girl, but their love for each other kept them together for more than 40 years.
He once said in an interview, “There was something simple about her, and I had a very complicated life.”
In 2005, Donny and Debra’s son Jeremy and his wife Melissa gave birth to their first grandchild, a boy named Dylan. This was a happy time for the Osmond family, who spends as much time as they can with each other.
Even though Donny is always on the road and making music, he still makes time to spend with his grandkids.
His grandkids do a lot of things, like sports and art, and Donny is always there to support them and help them reach their goals. He once flew home so he could watch one of his grandkids play football. After the win, he was happy and said how proud he was of himself.
