Jennifer Garner celebrated her 50th birthday on Sunday. This milestone was made all the more special with a pre-birthday surprise by her childhood crush.
She revealed to her followers on Instagram that she got a surprise from Donny Osmond. She uploaded the video clip on Friday and fans gushed over the moment. The 13 Going on 30 star can be seen seated in a restaurant, stunned, as she watches a personalized greeting with Osmond performing a birthday song for her. She was about to thank the person who had sent her the customized Blue Mountain greeting when she heard the singing continue from right behind her.
Garner realized that it was Osmond singing for her and he had also brought a cake that read, "13 Going On 50! Love Donny!" Even when Osmond, 64, took a seat next to the birthday girl, the musical moment in the video continued. He joined her for an impromptu performance of some of his previous songs, including his 1975 cover of Make the World Go Away, reports TODAY.
Garner wrote in the caption of the clip, "My first (pre)birthday surprise was a doozy— the one and only, legend in his own time, object of my childhood adoration and devotion— @donnyosmond showed up to knock my purple socks off." She added, "He took an hour and a half of his day to sit with me, sing my favorites, and to give me a master class on how to be a class act." She also mentioned Osmond's former stage partner Marie and wrote that she hopes to meet Osmond's wife, Debbie, too.
