OSMOND PUTTING FAITH IN HOSPITAL

The singer showed faith in the CMN Hospitals as she helped co-found the non-profit organization. The organization raises funds for children’s hospitals, medical research, and community awareness of children’s health issues.

Her daughter Brianna Blosil Schwep, 21, was the one who gave birth to her granddaughter. Brianna shares the baby girl with her cinematographer husband Dave Schwep, 42.

OSMOND REVEALS HAVING GRANDCHILDREN IS MOST IMPORTANT

The actress and Blosil also adopted five children. In a May 2016 interview with Closer Weekly, Osmond revealed that becoming a grandmother was more important to her than all the awards she has won in her career.

Speaking candidly she said:

"Out of all the awards and accolades that I have been blessed with throughout my life, nothing comes close in comparison with the blessings I receive from being a mother to my eight children and grandma of three.”
