The great Donny and Marie Osmond OOPS moment

It’s not just normal people who suffer from incontinence. Many famous people do also.

We’ve all heard the saying ‘I laughed so hard I pee’d myself’.  It’s a very common occurence and affects many people. It is generally called ‘stress incontinence’ in polite society though is commonly referred to as ‘wetting myself’.

Someone who had a very public experience of this was the famous pop singer Marie Osmond. The 60 year-old leaked a small puddle of wee during a farewell night of the Donny & Marie Cruise Show. An audience member had asked a question and they both started laughing hysterically. Marie was performing with her brother, Donny  and they laughed so hard that Marie couldn’t control herself. While a little embarrassed she simply exclaimed, “I just peed my pants!” and proceeded to wipe the stage.

Having a small leak when you laugh or sneeze is very common among women and can be a result of childbirth. Marie has given birth to three children (adopting five of her eight in total) which may have created the problem as we know childbirth can affect the pelvic floor.

Although quite embarrassed, Donny reportedly laughed, too: “She ’embraced it,” he said. “It’s so important to be yourself.”
