If Friday was any indication about how Jennifer Garner’s 50th birthday weekend is going to go, then she’s in for a treat indeed.
The actress turns 50 on Sunday, but she went out with some friends to kick off celebrating her on Friday afternoon.
And she got at least one surprise that she wasn’t expecting at all.
A pretty great surprise: If Friday was any indication about how Jennifer Garner’s 50th birthday weekend is going to go, then she’s in for a treat indeed
The Daredevil actress shared a video to her Instagram which showed her clearly awestruck as a voice recording from Donny Osmond sang personally to her.
However, that surprise was nothing compared to her shock when Osmond, 64, stood behind her, in the flesh, and began to sing.
She stood up from her seat and hugged him briefly before asking, ‘I’m so hot, can I just take my sweater off?’ before removing her gray knit-sweater from her.

The pair sang a duet of Osmond’s classic song Make The World Go Away, a song he and his sister Marie Osmond originally performed. Garner got really into it, ad-libbing noises and closing her eyes as she sang with the Utah native.
The mother of three shared her enthusiasm in the caption, writing, ‘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.
‘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. Thank you, Donny. Hi, @marieosmond. ☺️ I hope to meet you someday, Debbie. ♥️’

The Alias star first opened up about her infatuation with Osmond back in 2019 on an Instagram post by Katie Couric.
Couric posted a photo of the Osmonds with Cher as they performed in bright jumpsuits and Garner commented, ‘My number one biggest crush of all time @donnyosmond’ with a kissy face emoji.
The Puppy Love singer replied, ‘Miraculous that those jumpsuits didn’t scare you away,’ and they’ve had a few social media interactions since then.
