Donny Osmond Says He’s ‘Missed His Calling’ to Be a Doctor after Joking about His Bad Handwriting
Donny Osmond joked about how he could have become a doctor with how bad his handwriting has become through the years.
The 61-year-old singer shared a photo on Instagram of himself with author Debra Hayes, who has twice asked for his autograph.
He captioned the snap: “I recently met Debra Hayes. She got my autograph back in 1972 and has saved this #autograph book ever since. Debra asked me to sign it again at a #MeetandGreet a few nights ago."
"Can you believe how much my signature has changed over the years? When I was 14 you could actually read the letters in my name. Looking back 47 years later, I’m realizing I’ve missed my calling in life. I should've been a doctor.”
"You and your beautiful family bring so much joy, fun and meaning to my life. I am very proud to call you ours."
Osmond began his career in the entertainment industry when he was five years old. He made his television debut as a young singer on “The Andy Williams Show” where he sang “You are My Sunshine”. He also performed “Yes Sir, That’s My Baby” with his famous brothers, Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay.
For the next five decades, the singer and television personality has headlined several live shows, including Broadway.
He rose to stardom as a teen idol in the 1970s with his hits “Go Away Little Girl” and “Puppy Love.” His peers at the time were David Cassidy and Bobby Sherman.
Osmond also became a talk show and game show host. He also appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” and as the Peacock in the singing competition, “The Masked Singer.”
Earlier this year, Osmond shared a touching birthday message to his look-alike son. On Instagram, Osmond shouted out to his third son, Brandon Michael Osmond who turned 34.
"Happy birthday, Brandon! I am grateful every day that you are my son. You and your beautiful family bring so much joy, fun and meaning to my life. I am very proud to call you ours," he captioned a family photo.
