Marie Osmond and Donny Osmond have retained their closeness through the years. Their sibling love is evident in Marie’s recent post on social media.
The “Red My Lips” singer, 60, shared an adorable throwback photo showing herself and her brother when they were little. She captioned the sweet photo:
“Does anyone remember Midge Midge & Allen #Barbie dolls?! I remember when Donny and I got them for Christmas! I could never have too many dolls…”
In the photo, the siblings were holding their Christmas gifts while sitting in their living room. The old photo set off nostalgia not only for Marie but also for her fans.
Some of them recalled owning the same doll. One fan said Marie and Donny were “preciously adorable.”
Marie recently sent out an encouraging message to the public as millions of people cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s not the first photo of Marie with a doll. She also earlier shared a photo of herself lying in bed with her dolls, as reported by Closer Weekly.
Marie has a doll collection. She has been designing dolls for 25 years. She once showed off her collection in an episode of her show, “The Talk.”
The Grammy nominee, who is married to Steve Craig, keeps some of her dolls at their home in Utah.
Aside from dolls, Marie’s other treasured memorabilia is an old sofa that she and her late son, Michael Bryan picked out. Michael died of suicide in 2010. The couch helps Marie cope with her loss. She said:
“This is Mike’s couch. This is the one thing I wanted. This is the last thing we bought together."
She said the couch makes her reminisce about sweet days with her son. She loves taking a nap on the couch.
Marie and Donny rose to stardom as a singing duo. In the 1970s, they also hosted their own television variety program, according to Variety.com.
Marie later established a solo career as a country music artist. Among Marie’s many hits are the chart-topping “Paper Roses,” “Meet Me in Montana” and “I Only Want You.”
