Marie OsmondMARIE Osmond is going to be a Grandma!

According to a new report, the singer’s eldest son, Stephen Craig, has finally made good on his promise to give his superstar mom her first grandchild — and they’re hoping it’s a boy, because they hope to name their son Michael – as a tribute to Ste­phen’s adopted brother who committed suicide at age 18.

Michael had been suffer­ing from depression when he jumped from the eighth-floor balcony of his Los Angeles apartment building in Febru­ary 2010.

“Needless to say, Marie was absolutely devastated by Michael’s death,” said the source.

“That’s why finally becoming a grandma means so much to her. It’s bringing a measure of joy back into her life.

“Marie said, ‘I can’t wait! You won’t be able to get me away from that child!’

“Marie was deeply touched when Steve told her the baby news.

“He also told his mom that, if it’s a baby girl, they’ll name her Olive in honor of Marie (whose first name is Olive) and her late mother Olive, who died in 2004.

“Marie said, ‘It doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl. Simply having a grandchild would be the greatest gift that Steve and Claire could possibly give me.’ ”
