Donny and Marie Osmond have been household names since the 1970s thanks to their catchy songs. The two hail from the famous singing group The Osmonds, although their careers as solo artists and as a couple are undoubtedly some of the most popular in their extended family. Per IMDb, Donny and Marie starred in their own television series, aptly named “Donny & Marie,” from 1976 to 1979, and that really put them on the map. All of the Osmond crew members starred in the first season of the variety show, but they only appeared occasionally after that, as Donny and Marie stood out as the bigger stars.

Donny and Marie have many solo hits of their own, such as Marie’s 1973 classic “Paper Roses” and Donny’s 1972 hit “Puppy Love,” but they’ve also made a lot of music together. Official Charts shares a list of their top songs, including “I’m Leaving It All up to You” and “Morning Side of the Mountain,” both released in the ’70s. In 2011, Donny and Marie released another self-titled album via Amazon for the first time in 30 years.

In a 2021 interview with TalkShopLive (via Entertainment Tonight), Marie revealed that she and her brother have no plans to release another album. “At this stage of the game … you can only sing so many times, and our music is very different now,” she said. But that doesn’t mean the love is lost.

A little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, Donny and Marie Osmond have a sweet relationship too. The couple grew up in the spotlight together and they are one of the hottest sibling acts in Hollywood. The two have never been shy about opening up about their relationship, and while they love to blow each other’s chops, they’re still incredibly close.

In 2019, Donny and Marie chatted about their wildly popular Las Vegas residency, which ended in an interview with Entertainment Tonight where they flaunted their playful banter. “Why why not?” Donny said about her decision to end the show. “There are so many projects that we want to do individually,” he said, adding, “We had no idea it was going to take 11 years. We started out on a six-week contract, and here we are 11 years later.” Marie chimed in, saying the rumors they were “fighting” had already started, though she attributed it to siblings. “And I’m like, ‘Oh, come on, we get mad at each other every day. Come on,'” she joked.

But despite their fun dynamic, Marie still loves her brother. “There’s this thing called DNA that kind of brings you closer. Donny and I, we have so much history together,” she told Closer Weekly in 2019. “Even though we’ve had our own careers and I’ve done my thing for years and he did his, I mean, we’re family.” Shy!

He accompanied the Instagram post with an equally cute caption. “The Las Vegas Walk of Fame in 2019. Such a fun and humbling experience to share with my sister @marieosmond,” he gushed.

In turn, in honor of Pi Day, Marie Donny shared a throwback clip from her show, including a hilarious video of Donny being thrown into a giant cake. “A pie in the face (or, in this case, full pie immersion) is essentially a rite of passage in any sibling relationship. Sorry @donnyosmond!” she wrote via Instagram. “I hope everyone enjoys a piece today. #PiDay.” And on Thanksgiving 2021, Donny took to Instagram to share a throwback with his siblings as he reflected on how much he has to be thankful for. All in all, the Osmonds (especially Donny and Marie) seem like a tight-knit bunch!
