Marie Osmond Wishes Her Granddaughter Rocket Jade a Happy 4th Birthday in a New Photo
Marie Osmond is a very happy grandmother and she recently wished her granddaughter, Rocket Jade, a happy birthday, urging her fans and followers to do the same.
The 59-year-old singer claimed that she couldn't believe the little girl was already four years old, proof that time flies, and that she was proud of being her "GlamMa."
Little Rocket was born on August 14, 2015, and Marie couldn't help but gush over her first granddaughter, describing her as a "gift."
WELCOMING ROCKET INTO THE FAMILY
Rocket was brought into the world by Marie's daughter Rachael Krueger and husband Grabriel Krueger, at St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson, Nevada.
At the time, Marie said:
"Little Rocket is such a gift! I can’t stop looking at her — isn’t she so beautiful!? She looks like her mommy! I could not be happier for Rachael, Gabriel, and their growing family.”
A BRAND NEW WOMAN
Rocket's arrival boosted the singer's pride in her family and her self-confidence, using her 50-pound weight loss as an example of how well she felt.
Marie considered herself a lucky woman for having so much energy to keep on performing and caring for her lovely family, especially her grandchildren.
REMEMBERING HER LATE SON
Having them in her life seems to make it easier for "The Donny & Marie Show" star to cope with the loss of her son Michael Blosil, who took his own life in 2010.
It has been reported that Michael struggled with depression for most of his life, which ultimately led him to leap to his death from his eighth-floor apartment in Los Angeles.

During the meet and greets @FlamingoVegas I have asked what you would like me to write about in my #Sunday messages. The number one topic: What do you do when life gets really tough? Harold B. Lee called [life’s tribulations], “the inevitable tragedies of life.” We don’t like the sound of the word inevitable, but it is an accurate term. Mortal life is filled with challenges, trials, setbacks, disappointments, misfortune, tragedy, disaster, loss, pain, suffering and sorrow…. When I was young I wondered where I would fit in my very talented family.I was the only girl and wanted to sing too, but could I? My brothers had already made a name for themselves and I wondered if there was even room for me. My Mother always believed in me and she would say “Marie you have a very strong voice, don’t be like others, be you.” And then one day I heard the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Judy Garland.It was as though Judy was singing those words right to me. I still fight feelings of inadequacy, but rather than give in to them, I remember my Mom believed in me. I hear those negative thoughts just like you do when I try something new...”what makes you think you can do that?” But as I let God lead me to new things, I find it’s possible! Someone recently asked me why after all the years of country, pop and broadway success I chose to sing Opera? Well, it is because my son Michael loved it. Michael’s passing left a hole in my heart that will never be filled until I see him again. When I sing his favorite genre and more specifically the song “Pie Jesu”, I can feel his presence and that brings me such joy! I went to his grave Friday when I arrived in Utah and I told him that the Saturday’s Symphonic show was for him. 🥰 The photo was from last night where I performed with the Utah Symphony Orchestra in Park City, Utah. The mountains I sang in front of are my metaphor of climbing and never giving up. Remember “when life gives you more than you can stand... kneel”. IT WORKS!
