The 62-year-old posted a photo of himself from years back, as a young boy, wearing a tool belt and standing behind a kitchen sink, looking back at the camera as though he wanted to react to something someone said.

"A rare sighting of Donny in his natural habitat. [emoji] #FBF."

A third fan asked Donny if he could come to their house and fix her sink, adding that the photo was so adorable, while a fourth person said they loved seeing such images of Donny in a natural, relaxed way and would love to see more of them.

Donny Osmond was born into a large family, he was the seventh of nine children. His parents loved music and enjoyed singing with his father, formerly an army sergeant, being a disciplinarian, and his mom, caring and nurturing. 

Donny said in a Guardian interview that his father was his mentor, and at 19, he knew he was in love with his secret girlfriend, Debbi Glenn, and wanted to marry her. His father however, had some words for him. 


Donny's dad told him that marriage would mean the end of his career, but the beginning of his personal life, something the singer said he discovered to be right after he married Debbie, who he tagged as an amazing person. 

Walt Disney discovered "The Osmonds" previously composed of Donny's older brothers, Wayne, Alan, Merrill, and Jay in California. Donny later joined them to complete the quintet.


The brothers performed at many shows, including the "Andy Williams Show," where they played for nine years. Their career continued to rise, with the brothers touring several places in the world, performing their hit tunes. 

The only female Osmond sibling, Marie, soon joined the brothers, and later on, she and Donny began performing duets. They also had their own television show, "Donny and Marie."

Donny later faced difficulties in his career and took a break at some point, but he revived it and has gone on to release more hit songs and collections, as well as host several television shows.
