Veteran entertainer Marie Osmond is set to receive an extra special Christmas present this year (13) - her first grandchild is due on 26 December (13).

The Paper Roses hitmaker's 30-year-old son Stephen Craig and his wife Claire are expecting their first child, and Osmond reveals the new addition to her family will arrive during the holiday season.

The 53 year old tells U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America, "December 26th I will become a grandmother. I'm so excited, it's so crazy!"

Craig is Osmond's only child with her first husband Stephen Craig, Sr., who she remarried in 2011 after separating from her second spouse, Brian Blosil, with whom she had two other kids and adopted five more.
