Marie Osmond Reveals Name of Newborn Granddaughter Who 'Is Still in the Hospital' (Photo)
Last week Thursday, legendary singer Marie Osmond revealed that her daughter had given birth to a baby girl. Now the singer has shared the name and picture of the precious little girl.
Marie Osmond, 59, initially shared with her fans that her daughter Brianna Blosil Schwep, 21, and her husband David Schwep, 42, had gotten their first child together. At the time, she also revealed that she was now a grandmother again to a little girl.
She also asked fans for prayers as the child had been taken to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). However, Osmond never explained why.
On Tuesday, Osmond shared a tweet revealing the little girl’s name and also shared an adorable image of the newborn baby. In the caption, she also shared that her granddaughter was still at the hospital, but was doing well.
Her tweet read:
“So grateful to welcome my newest #granddaughter, Brianna & David’s first child Maude Bailey-Moon Schwep into the world. She is still in the hospital, but is doing very well! Thank you everyone for the prayers, it means so much to us! #schwepicbaby”
The black-and-white photo of Maude showed her sleeping peacefully while swaddled in a blanket with heart decorations on it. For last week’s announcement of the little girl’s birth, Osmond also revealed how her daughter was doing.
In a statement, she said:
“My daughter, Brianna, gave birth to a beautiful little girl. Mom is doing well and my granddaughter is currently in a pediatric ICU. Thankfully, the prognosis looks great for our little angel.”
“We are grateful she is in exceptional hands with her team of doctors and nurses. We ask for your continued thoughts and prayers.”
Maude was taken to one of the CMN Hospitals which are special to Osmond as she helped co-found the non-profit organization that raises funds for children’s hospitals, medical research, and community awareness of children’s health issues. The singer has eight children with her husband Stephen Craig.
She has three other daughters, Jessica, 31, Rachael, 30, and Abigail, 16, and four sons, Stephen, 36, Brandon, 22, Matthew, 21, and Michael, 19, who died by suicide.
Osmond is already a grandmother to four grandchildren and is expecting another grandson from her daughter Rachael in July.
Her message on Twitter asking for prayers for her granddaughter read:
“Asking for prayers for my precious granddaughter born this evening 6lbs 10 ounces. So thankful she was able to be taken to children’s ICU in one of our amazing @CMNHospitals #gratitude that she is in their care!...”
