Jan. 18, 2000
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Entertainer Marie Osmond, the co-host of the ``Donny & Marie Show,'' has split from her music producer-husband of 13 years.
In a statement released by her publicist, Miss Osmond said that the separation from Brian Blosil was amicable.
``We hope the media will respect our privacy during this period of our lives,'' Miss Osmond said. Her publicist, Marleah Leslie, said no other details were being released.
The couple had seven children, including several who were adopted. Miss Osmond also has a son from a previous marriage.
Miss Osmond gave birth in Provo, Utah, to the couple's seventh child, Matthew R. Blosil, in July.
In October, Miss Osmond revealed that after having the baby, she left her family for a few days in a bout of postpartum depression.
