Donny and Marie Osmond's Big Brother Wayne Turns 68
Marie Osmond took to social media to celebrate her musician brother Wayne's birthday with a humorous and yet sweet tribute.
A few hours ago, Marie Osmond shared a throwback picture of Wayne. The snap is a unique one as it features the talented entertainer fully geared for the stage in an elaborate outfit fit just for an entertainer.
The picture is taken mid-performance and so has Wayne's fingers atop the guitar strings and his mouth open as he sang into the microphone. The photo is one that fans are sure to treasure for a very long time to come, but it seems that Marie's short caption makes the snap even more priceless.
The gorgeous singer and soon-to-premiere "The Talk" co-host humorously captioned the post writing:
"#HappyBirthday to my amazing brother Wayne!!! You will always be my favorite sister. I love you to the moon and back."
The heartfelt post is filled with several emojis including, love, balloons, and even a birthday cake, all befitting of the celebratory mood. Although the joke is evident with Marie calling Wayne her "favorite sister," the emotional undertones cannot be missed.
So far, the picture has earned well over four thousand likes as well as hundreds of comments from avid fans of the Osmond family. The comments section is abuzz with celebratory messages for Wayne with some even expressing admiration for the close-knit bond the Osmonds share.
One fan, @scottpaben commented:
"It's nice to have a sibling that you are close to. Happy birthday."
Another user, @ddkirkpatrick sent a congratulatory message to Wayne writing:
"Happy Birthday Wayne! We miss seeing your sweet smiling eyes!" "Happy Birthday Wayne! You have ALL been my favorite singers!!! Enjoy your day," said another, @rocnrose7.
The Osmond family is well-known in the music industry, thanks to the captivating talent that runs in the family. Even long after their 1959 debut, the Osmonds still have a devoted fan base.
