Marie Osmond remarries first husband Stephen Craig

Marie Osmond remarries first husband 
Stephen CraigMarie Osmond got married Wednesday to someone she's known a long time: She remarried first husband Stephen Craig, whom she divorced in 1985 after three years of marriage.

Osmond, 51, and Craig, 54 were married in a private ceremony at the Las Vegas Mormon temple, with a reception following at their nearby home.

"I am so happy and look forward to sharing my life with Stephen, who is an amazing man as well as a great father to my children," Osmond told People magazine.

The pending remarriage had been rumored for months, an Access Hollywood source said, with People noting that the choice of wedding date has significance for the bride: It's the birthday of both Marie's late mom, Olive, and her late son, Michael.

Osmond reportedly wore the same wedding dress Wednesday that she donned the first time around with Craig, who was a basketball player at Brigham Young University.

Thrilled brother Donny Osmond talks to ET exclusively about his sister Marie's wedding to her first husband Steve Craig earlier today in Las Vegas.

Donny tells ET that besides it being Marie's wedding day, it's also the birthday of his and Marie's mother and her late son Michael. He goes on to say that he's thrilled that Steve is officially part of the family again.

"Despite what has happened in the past, these two people are right for each other," Donny tells ET.  "My sister is so happy."

On Parade.com: The Osmonds Talk Vegas, Fame, and Justin Bieber

Music and TV icons Donny and Marie Osmond talked to Parade.com about their long career together, how their family keeps them grounded, why the sibling rivalry is real and much more.

Here are some highlights:

Their advice to today’s young stars like Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift?

Donnie: It’s a bumpy rollercoaster ride. Hang in there buddy because if you can just maintain your integrity with your music and who you are, you can ride that rollercoaster and not get bruised. Don’t take anything for granted.

Marie: Keep working and keep reinventing yourself and have your passion. I’ve always said if you’re not nervous before you go on stage to do a good job, than you shouldn’t be going on stage. And take care of your instrument. People joke and call us wholesome, but I’ve watched many of my peers lose their talents and overdose and die and get so out of it that they couldn’t even perform anymore. Be grateful for the gift you’ve been given.

Marie Osmond Releases New "Country" Album (With Donny!)

NASHVILLE.COM EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Marie and Donny. Sound weird? That’s only because the brother/sister Osmond family singing sensations have always been billed as: Donny and Marie. (Donny likes it that way.) They’ve been performing for almost half a century together, first as children with the singing “Osmond Brothers” act, then as teenagers they hosted their own variety TV series, Donny & Marie (1976-79); they jointly hosted a daytime TV talk show (1998 – 2000), and since 2008 they’ve been appearing together at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas – after many years of doing other things without each other (Marie has been selling her doll collection on QVC for 20 years, acted on Broadway, had a few solo and duet hit singles; Donny hosted the TV game show Pyramid (2002-2004), acted on Broadway, had a few solo hit singles … well, you get the picture). Oh, and they came in No. 1 and 3 respectively on the hit ABC reality/variety television dancing contest Dancing With the Stars (more about that later).
