Marie Osmond's 30th Year — A Glimpse into 1989 Which Was a Significant Year for the Singer
The year 1989 was the big year for singer Marie Osmond. It was the year she turned 30 on October 13 and a time when she experienced a couple of milestones.
In 1989, Osmond was pregnant with her second husband’s first child together. Brian Blosil, now her ex-husband, and the singer already had a girl child they’d adopted two years before.
During this time, the star wasn’t acting by continued to record music and performing in concert. In December 1989, she spoke to the “Star-Gazette” revealing: “I enjoy being active. It’s because I’ve been busy all my life.”
OSMOND’S FIRST CHILD
She explained, at the time, how she would “travel with my baby and some people to help out.” Osmond also shared how supportive her husband was by flying “to wherever I’m going to be for visits and I fly back and forth to Utah to see him.”
However, turning 30 wasn’t a bad thing for her although she noted how some people felt old at that age. It was the opposite for the vocalist who said: “I don’t. I feel good. Things are right. I’m very happy.”
