The Talk panelist Marie Osmond just shared a sweet post on her Instagram page to celebrate her daughter Jessica’s 32nd birthday. The singer and talk show co-host has been open on social media about her support and pride in her daughter and this birthday greeting was more of the same.
On Tuesday, Marie shared a close-up photo of Jessica and called her precious and an angel. She added a handful of birthday-related emoji as she wished her daughter a happy birthday and a beautiful day.
Many of Marie’s followers stepped up to wish Jess a happy birthday, too. Those who have followed Marie’s career since the early days seem to feel like they know some of her kids, as they essentially watched some of them grow up.
As many of Marie’s fans know, Jessica’s life journey has been a unique one in some ways. She was adopted as a toddler and she came out as a part of the LGBTQ community some years ago. Jess is one of five children Marie and her former husband Brian Blosil adopted.
The Talk star opened up this past fall as she started her gig with the show about how she has experienced mom-shaming. As ET Online detailed, Marie noted that one area where she received some criticism was in supporting Jessica when she recently married her long-time girlfriend Sara.
Jessica and Sara got married last June and Marie was right there to celebrate the big day. The singer acknowledged that some people shamed her for attending the wedding. Fans know that Marie and her family come from a conservative Mormon background. However, Marie said that one should never be shamed for loving their child.
Marie’s birthday tribute to Jess received hundreds of likes in the first hour after it had been uploaded, along with dozens of supportive comments.
“Happy birthday to your beautiful daughter!!!!” wrote one fan.
“Happy birthday to Jess. I hope she has an amazing day celebrating!!!!” shared another of Marie’s followers, who added several emoji to her note.
“Daughters are the best!!!!” noted a third fan.
“Happy Birthday Jess! You are awesome and thank you for being YOU!” a fourth commenter wrote.
The Talk co-host posts about both her family and the show regularly on her Instagram. Another recent post she shared was a sweet tribute to her late son Michael. Just before that, she shared her youngest daughter’s beautiful singing voice.
Although Jess doesn’t really embrace the limelight, it seems that she must not mind her mother sharing a few tidbits of her life via social media here and there. It appears that the 32-year-old has received nothing but love from her family’s fans on her birthday. It looks like the uplifting birthday wishes will keep rolling in as the day continues.
