How Many Kids Does Marie Osmond Have?

One would assume that having a career this demanding won’t afford Marie the time to have children or raise a family. Ironically, she has been able to raise 3 biological and 5 of adopted children.

She married Stephen Lyle Craig (basketball player) in 1982 and welcomed her first and only child (Stephen James Craig) with him on the 20th of April 1983 their marriage ended in divorce in 1985.

In 1986, Marie found love again with Brian Blosil. She had two children with him – Rachael Lauren born 19th of August 1989 and Mathew Richard born on the 6th of August 1998. During her marriage to Blosil, the couple adopted 5 children. They are Jessica Marie who was born on the 17th of December 1987, Michael Bryan born 4th May 1991 – who tragically committed suicide on the 26th of February 2010 after a long struggle with substance abuse and depression. The couple also adopted Brandon Warren born November 1996, Brianna Patricia born on the 19th of November 1997 and Abigail Olive May born on the 5th of September 2002.

Marie Osmond herself grew up in a large family, she is the only girl of her parent’s nine children and this might be why she also wanted a large family.
