Following the success of The Osmonds, Donny launched his own successful solo career after the siblings went their separate ways. His first song, "Soldier of Love" was known as his comeback hit as it No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1989.

Though music put him on the map, Donny found success in other sectors of entertainment. He and Marie hosted the Donny & Marie Show, a variety show that aired on ABC from 1976 to 1979. They also had an eponymous Daytime Emmy-nominated talk show from 1998 to 2000.

Above, Donny is pictured on the set of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which took him on a stage tour.

Having grown up with his tight-knit siblings all around him, it's no wonder Donny is the consummate family man. He welcomed his first son Donald Clark Jr. on July 31, 1979, and would follow up with four more boys: Jeremy James, Brandon Michael, Christopher Glenn and Joshua Davis.

These days, the "If It's Love You Want" singer is a proud grandpa of 14 grandchildren.
