The youngest of the original Osmond brothers is discouraging his kids from taking up the family business.

Jimmy Osmond told the British paper The Express that he has tried to keep his kids — Sophia, 17; Zachary, 14; Arthur, 11; and Isabella, 9 — from getting into showbiz.

"They do want to but I told them no. They're talented little things and they used to be in some of my shows," Osmond, 48, said in an interview. "I just want them to get an education. I never went to proper school. I went to college but I never graduated and it's something I regret."
