LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Marie Osmond might not reportedly leave any money from her $26 million fortune for her children as she wants them to learn about self-worth.

The 64-year-old singer has spoken about it earlier and recently told Fox News Digital, “I just think you rob them of finding who they are, and self-worth can't be bought.”

Osmond continued, “That's my opinion. I believe that, when I leave this life, I want my children to know that they can take care of themselves.”

Marie Osmond is 'proud' of her children

However, the ‘Until I Fall in Love Again’ singer clarified that she would help her children whenever required.

She asserted, “Does that mean I'm not helping them along the way? Of course not. My children are all — they have wonderful jobs that they love.”

The actress added, “They're very passionate, and I'm so proud of each and every one of them.”

Osmond has welcomed eight children over the years. They are Stephen, 40, Jessica, 36, Rachael, 34, Brandon, 27, Brianna, 25, Matthew, 24, Abigail, 21, and Michael, who died in 2010.

At the time too, she had claimed she wouldn't leave any inheritance for her children.

“Honestly, why would you enable your child to not try to be something? I don’t know anybody who becomes anything if they’re just handed money,” Osmond shared.

She continued, “To me, the greatest gift you can give your child is a passion to search out who they are inside and to work. I mean, I’ve done so many things from designing dolls [and much more]. I love trying [and] I wanna try everything. I’m a finisher.”

The veteran added, “That’s one of my rules with my kids. If you start it, you finish it, you don’t ever have to do it again, but you gotta finish. And, I just think all [an inheritance] does is breed laziness and entitlement.”
