Performance has always been a family affair for Donny Osmond, who rose to fame in the 1970s performing with his sister Marie, and before that with the Osmond Brothers. And it seems Donny Osmond's kids and grandkids inherited their father's musical genes, because a lot of them are performers, too. And there are a lot of them.

Donny comes from a big family, and must have loved growing up with so many siblings, because he went on to have five sons with his wife, Debra. They got married in 1978, welcoming their first son, Don Jr., in 1979, followed by Jeremy in 1981, Brandon in 1985, Christopher in 1990, and Joshua in 1998.

Donny Osmond and wife Debra

The Osmonds belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and family is very central to the Mormon tradition, so it's no surprise that Donny is close with his sons and their kids.

Donny and Debra intentionally raised their kids out of the spotlight and let them find their own paths in life, so it's no surprise that not all of his kids have the singing bug.

Let's meet them all below.

Don Osmond Jr.

Eldest son Don works as a marketing executive. He married his wife Jessica in 2010, and they went on to welcome four sons together. Their fourth son, born in 2020, is named Christian, but it's unclear what the other boys' names are.

Donny Osmond has 14 grandkids, with more surely to come.

A love of music is also clearly something that runs through the generations of the family, based on their joyful singalong performance with Grandpa in the Disney Family Singalong in 2020. They performed "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from Mulan. Donny provided the singing voice for Li Shang in the animated movie (with dialogue performed by actor B.D. Wong).

Donny also posted an adorable video of the entire family singing together during Christmas 2022.
