Losing a child can devastating and popular singer Marie Osmond knows first hand what that pain can be like.

Marie has been married thrice, twice to the same man. She married Stephen Lyle Craig in 1982 but they divorced three years later. A year later, she tied the knot with Brian Blosil and they had two children together, Rachel and Matthew.

They also adopted five children: Jessica, Michael, Brandon, Brianna, and Abigail.

In 2007, Marie and Brian announced they were getting divorced and in 2011, she remarried her first husband Stephen.

In 2010, it was announced that one of Marie's adopted children Michael, committed suicide at the age of 18.

Marie said she was devastated by the tragic loss and according to TMZ, Michael Blosil left a note which referred his lifelong battle with depression.

It's been nineteen years since that tragic event but when Marie Osmond spoke about it recently, it was clear that she hadn't forgotten that pain.
