Donny Osmond ‘Proud’ Of Son’s Appearance On CLAIM TO FAME

By Movieguide® Contributor

Donny Osmond is weighing in on his son Chris’ stint on reality show CLAIM TO FAME. 

“For those of you who’ve been watching the ABC reality show, CLAIM TO FAME, I thought my son, Chris, did an amazing job!” the singer wrote on Instagram. “He made that show so interesting because no one could guess which celebrity he was related to. I’m proud of my son.”

Osmond then jokingly signed off as “Nicholas Cage. I mean, Elvis Presley. I mean, Jim Carrey. I mean, John Mayer. I mean, Elton John. I mean. Billy Idol. I mean, Little Richard. I mean, Ozzy Osbourne. I mean, Paul McCartney. I mean, John Travolta. I mean, Sting. I mean, Garth Brooks. I mean, Donny Osmond.”

Chris came in third place on the celebrity-connection guessing game show when fellow contestant Monay correctly named Osmond as his celebrity family member. 

“Honestly, he’s been laughing his head off,” Chris told PEOPLE of his dad’s reaction to his time on CLAIM TO FAME. “We talk on the daily, and he’s been a good support, but he also has been laughing through it.”

Chris shared that growing up with a father in the entertainment industry meant “a lot of pressure” to live up to being an Osmond. 

“He’s a very strong performer,” he explained. “He’s got an amazing voice and is a perfectionist, and I’m a perfectionist too, so I think that kind of got to me over the years of like, ‘Oh, I need to measure up to this guy.’ But doing this show made me realize, ‘Hey, I can be my own person. I’m Chris. Yes, I’m part of the Osmond family, but I have my own talent.’”

He continued, “That’s why I did this show in the first place: to have an experience on television in front of millions of people, which is daunting. It was a little scary for the first week or so, and then we kind of got into our rhythm, and I realized in the moment I’m like, ‘I can do this. This is fun.’” 

Chris posted about his time on CLAIM TO FAME on Instagram, writing, “I’ve made so many great friends through this. It’s amazing to meet others that come from similar backgrounds of living in the shadow of someone else. It’s a story and perspective that hardly gets talked about, so I’m humbled and grateful this show allowed me to express who I truly am.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Osmond’s relationship with his family:

Singer Donny Osmond is big on family. 

In a recent interview, he briefly opened up about his love for his kids and the arrival of his newest grandchild, Dune.  

Osmond and his wife of 45 years share five sons and 14 grandchildren, and their whole family loves to get together.  

“It’s sweet chaos, is what it’s called. We had a Fourth of July party just not long ago and had everybody over,” Osmond said. “We had the time of our lives. It was fantastic.”
