Donny Osmond loves being a grandpa to 12 kids – cried in joy at long-awaited grandbaby’s birth

Nothing is more important to Donny Osmond than his family, and that's what makes this so difficult. When his eldest son's struggle finally ended, Donny was left in an ocean of tears. I have nothing but love for this family and wish them the best moving forward.


Besides being a famous musician who has spent his entire life giving his fans plenty of memorable moments with his music and performances, Donny Osmond is also a father and a grandfather of 12.

Donny and his wife of many years, Debra Glan, welcomed five sons together, Don, Jeremy, Brandon, Christopher, and Joshua.

Today, Don has four kids with his wife Jessica, Jeremy has three children with Melissa, Brandon and his wife Shelby also have four kids, and Christopher has one baby with his wife Alta. As of Donny’s youngest son, he and his wife tied the knot in 2020 but decided to spend some years on their own before becoming parents.

Donny and Debra became grandparents for the first time in 2005, when Jeremy and Melissa welcomed son Dylan. This was a joyous moment for the Osmond family who tend to spend as much time together as possible.

Donny, who is super busy performing and making music, still finds the time to spend with his grandchildren.

In 2012, Osmond appeared on “The Talk” for a ‘Father’s Day Special’, and his eldest son Don made a surprise appearance alongside him to deliver some wonderful news. He told Donny that he was about to become a father for the first time. Don said, “I wasn’t the first to make you a grandfather, but Jessica and I have your fifth grandbaby.” Donny received the news with plenty of emotions and started crying. Later on, he even revealed why he got so emotional. “They’ve been trying for a long, long, long time, I’m very happy for them and I’m pretty happy myself too!”

Further, Donny said that his son and daughter-in-law had been experiencing fertility issues, but they were able to overcome them, and today, they share four beautiful children together.

“We officially have a dozen! Debbie and I are so excited that our 12th grand baby was born two weeks ago. Don and Jessi welcomed Christian, their 4th son, on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 and we are already in love,” Donny wrote on Instagram.

His grandchildren are involved in plenty of activities, and that includes sports and arts, and Donny is always by their side to support their dreams. One time, he flew home just to see one of his grandchildren play a football match. After the win, he expressed his satisfaction and said how proud he was.

When his other grandson had a basketball match, Donny went to see him and went to LA to continue his residency right after that.

Donny once tweeted that another of his grandchildren was a talented artists whose work has been displayed at the National Museum of History in Washington, DC.

When his first granddaughter was born, Donny was over the moon. “She has the most lovable personality and always makes sure that everyone has a friend. I’m so lucky to have this little girl in my life. In fact, I often refer to her as my sweet little princess,” he later wrote.

One thing about Donny is certain. He is a much involved grandfather anyone would ask for.

We wish the Osmond family only the best life brings.
