Donny Osmond of 'Donny & Marie' Fame Shares Sweet Throwback Photo in Honor of His Son Brandon's 35th Birthday

In honor of his son's 35th birthday, Donny Osmond shared a throwback picture. The two look so much alike as they posed wearing matching white shirts.

Donny Osmond was feeling a little nostalgic as he celebrated his son Brandon Osmond's 35th birthday with a throwback picture. In his caption he said:

"Wishing my son Brandon a very #HappyBirthday! I consider myself lucky beyond words to call you my son."

In the picture, Donny is sitting on the floor, while Brandon lay on his stomach on a plaid couch behind him, and leaned in next to him to look at the camera. 

In a father-son moment he appeared to be showing his son some affection with his arm around him, as his fingers ran through Brandon's curly blond locks.

Donny has been married to Debra Glenn since 1978. He was only 20-years-old when he said: "I do." Making his family just as big as the one he grew up in, the couple has five sons together. Using the birthday tribute to reflect on how far his son has come in life, Donny gushed:

"It's remarkable how quickly the years have flown by, but watching you learn, grow, and create a family of your own is a precious gift. Your mother and I love you very much."

Have you ever heard of a ✨Giving Machine✨? The bright red box behind us is a special vending machine used to give to local charities and worldwide initiatives. With the swipe of a card, individuals are able to donate items such as food, clothing, sports equipment, hygiene supplies, and medicine to those in need.⁣ ⁣ Today we launched the #LasVegas Giving Machines, which are the first to open in the U.S. this year. The best part is, I got to be with my son Brandon for the kickoff. Many people have suggested I get involved with the @churchofjesuschrist's Light the World Giving Machines. Little do they know that my son Brandon helped develop and promote the entire campaign. It's pretty cool to see him involved with such a meaningful initiative. ⁣ ⁣ If you'll be in Manila, Philippines; Las Vegas, NV; Laie, HI; Gilbert, AZ; Salt Lake City, UT; Orem, UT; Denver, CO; San Jose, CA; New York, NY; or London, England anytime this holiday season, be sure to find and donate through the #GivingMachine. ⁣ ⁣ More info on #lighttheworld

Since ending his Las Vegas residency after 11 years of performances with his sister, Marie Osmond, you would think Donny would slow down with his career at 62-years-old.

Having lived his entire life in the spot light, the proud grandfather of 10 is still enjoying his career in music as a judge on "The Masked Singer," after appearing on the show as the "Peacock."
