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
“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
