“The Talk” co-host Marie Osmond got a special Mother’s Day surprise from her colleagues recently. The star was able to speak remotely with her family via video call.
On Friday, May 8, 2020, Osmond, 60, got to speak to and see her children and grandchildren in a rare appearance by her family recently. “The Talk” organized the singer’s family member’s for a video call to celebrate the star for Mother’s Day.
Co-host Carrie Ann Inaba, 52, facilitated the surprise on the CBS talk show. Osmond was pleasantly surprised when she logged into the call to see her family together after thinking she had to log off because of technical issues.
SURPRISE MOTHER’S DAY CALL
The “Paper Roses” vocalist was shocked when she saw her family members all together from their respective homes. Osmond yelled, “What?!” as her family started cheering: “Happy Mother’s Day.”
It cleverly describes the new reality of choosing who you’ll quarantine with
“The Dancing with the Stars” judge informed her: “Since your family couldn’t be there with you on Mother’s Day this year, we thought this was the best next thing to bring everyone here.” Her family then started sharing their Mother’s Day messages to her.
The singer’s children, Stephen, 37, Jessica, 23, Rachel, 30, Brianna, 22, Matthew, 20, and Abigail, 17, were all smiles as their mother struggled to hold back tears. The only person missing was her son, Brandon, 23.
ISOLATING WITH HER HUSBAND
Rocket Jade and Wolf were also present for the call. Osmond, like most Americans, has been self-isolating at her Utah home with her husband Steven Craig.
THANKFUL FOR MESSAGES
People have been advised to stay at home as much as possible to try and curb the spread of the novel coronavirus disease. After receiving all of her Mother’s Day messages, Osmond shared her gratitude saying:
“Thank you so much, my angels … I’m just the most blessed woman on the planet.”
OSMOND’S ARE “QUARANTEAMING”
On April 19, 2020, the star took to Instagram to reveal how her family was “quaranteaming.” She explained what the word meant stating: “It cleverly describes the new reality of choosing who you’ll quarantine with so you won’t be alone anymore.”
