Mormon mother Marie Osmond is OK with her daughter Jessica being a lesbian.

The entertainer and mother of eight recently told Entertainment Tonight that she loves her eldest child unequivocally.

“I love my daughter! She's my baby girl, come on,” she said.

“So what if she's gay? She's my daughter and she's an amazing woman and a good kid. I raised her, she better be good.”

Marie and her brother Donny are best known for hosting the 1970's TV variety show Donny & Marie. The pair were raised in a large Mormon home, but Marie said she sees no conflict with embracing her religion and her gay daughter.

“I think it's sad when we have to separate something society. Whether it's, 'Oh you're Jewish', and then it was 'Oh you're a Mormon', or 'Oh you're gay'. I love real people,” she said. “A lot of women out there have gay children. Who cares? I want love. I'm a Christian and Christ loved everybody.”
