Marie Osmond has spoken out to defend her lesbian daughter amid tabloid reports the Mormon singer is racked with sexual shame.
The Paper Roses hitmaker is reportedly upset about her adopted daughter Jessica's sexual orientation - because it goes against her own religious beliefs, but Osmond insists that's not the case.
She says, "I love my daughter, she's my baby girl... So what if she's gay."
And Osmond is challenging those who might look down on her and her family because of the revelation.
She adds, "I think it's sad when we have to separate something from society... There are a lot of women out there who have gay children, who cares?
"I want love. I'm a Christian and Christ was that way - he loved everybody."
Tabloid reports suggest Jessica is secretly living with her partner and the pair plans to wed.
