Donny Osmond admitted ‘temptation’ outside 45 year marriage to Debbie

Loose Women: Donny Osmond reveal his Christmas plans

Donny Osmond has famously been married to actress Debbie Osmond since 1978, and he says she is the only woman he’s slept with.

Nevertheless, the 65-year-old admitted that he was “tempted” to be more promiscuous but is “glad” that he didn’t sleep around.

Broaching the topic of vices with the now-defunct London Paper, Donny said in 2007: “Of course I do [have vices]. My wife would say I’m a workaholic. But I’m a good Mormon boy, let’s put in that way. I don’t smoke or drink, and I didn’t have sex before I got married to Debbie.

“There were temptations when I was young – I was tempted all the time – but I’m glad I didn’t sleep around. I’m very lucky I found a great woman first time.”

The Osmonds star met Debbie when she was 15 and dating his older brother Jay, 68.

Donny and Debbie dated for three years before tying the knot. At the time, Donny was 20 and Debbie was 19.

By the time of their marriage, Donny had already achieved worldwide fame performing with his brothers as The Osmonds and going on to release several top 10 hits as a solo artist.

His career would later reach new heights due to the success of the Donny and Marie variety series, chat show and 11-year Las Vegas residency.

Sharing how he and Debbie’s marriage survived, Donny told The Mail’s Weekend Magazine in 2017: “People ask what’s the secret. I respect my wife and would never do anything to hurt her. She’s the same with me.”

The outlet then probed as to whether it took willpower not to be tempted given the legions of groupies that came with his worldwide fame.

He replied candidly: “Oh, I’m tempted. All the time. I mean, I work five nights a week in Las Vegas. Hello! They call it Sin City for a reason. So, I’m tempted, but I don’t cross that line.

“I’d lose everything. I’d lose my wife, my kids, my grandkids. Their respect would be gone. There’s so much at stake. And it works both ways. Debbie is the same…

“Nobody’s perfect. For some people, relationships just don’t work. My sister went through a divorce. A couple of my brothers are divorced, and I hurt for them. Maybe Debbie and I were lucky, we found a soul mate first time round.”

Donny and Debbie share five children. They are: Donny Jr, 44, Jeremy, 42, Brandon, 38 Chris, 32, and Josh, 25. The iconic couple also have 14 grandchildren.
