Donny Osmond is no doubt one of the most famous Mormons in the entertainment industry. And it’s fair to say that his religious beliefs have sometimes landed him in hot water with the public over the years. Take the star’s controversial confession about gay marriage, for instance. His opinions on the subject in fact resulted in a serious backlash from fans. Then Donny also raised eyebrows by coming clean about one of his biggest regrets.
Yet Donny and all his siblings were raised in the Mormon religion. And it is a big family – Donny has seven brothers and one sister, after all – at the head of which was patriarch George Osmond. George was actually the person who turned his brood into a squeaky-clean group of singing superstars. That’s why Donny was performing on stage before he’d even turned six years old.
