Marie Osmond Celebrates First GrandchildBy: Meaghan Ellis - December 20, 2013
Some Christmas gifts are absolutely priceless, and Marie Osmond can probably attest to such sentiments! On Thursday, Osmond happily declared to the world that she is officially a grandmother!
The 54-year-old singer took to Twitter to announce the newest addition to her family. According to E! Online, Osmond’s eldest son Stephen Craig, and his wife Claire Olds, welcomed a baby boy into the world. However, the bundle of joy does come as a bit of a surprise, as he decided to arrive just a little earlier than expected.
When Osmond appeared on Good Morning America back in October, she announced that the baby was actually due December 26. So, he’s definitely an early Christmas gift! However, that wasn’t her first time mentioning the expectation of the child.
Osmond has actually been gushing with excitement for months, expressing her high anticipation of becoming a grandmother. The ‘Paper Roses’ singer actually revealed that the child was on the way back when she stopped by The Talk in June. She initially quipped that she was pregnant, but quickly refuted the claim jokingly. The mother of seven is definitely past her days of early motherhood, with new sights on enjoying her first grandchild.
“I am so excited I’m going to be a grandma,” the singer said. She went on to explain that her son announced the wonderful news during his birthday celebration earlier this year. “I just can’t wait. We went in for my son—for his birthday—he turned 30, which is amazing ’cause I’m 29. He blew out the candles and then blew me away and said, ‘You’re gonna be a grandma!’ It was really fun.”
Her representative also expressed her elation over the birth of the child, and becoming a grandmother. ” She, of course, is over the moon,” her representative told “OMG! Insider”.
Marie Osmond is currently on a Christmas tour with her brother, singer Donnie Osmond.
