LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- In a short statement released Monday by her publicist, Marie Osmond says that she has separated from her music producer-husband Brian Blosil. Blosil and Osmond have been married for 13 years and have seven children, including several adopted children and one son from Marie's previous marriage.

Osmond gave birth to the seventh, Matthew, just last July in Provo. In October, she revealed that after having the baby she left the family for a few days because of postpartum depression.

"We hope the media will respect our privacy during this period of our lives," said Osmond in the statement. According to her publicist, Marleah Leslie, no further details are being released.

According to the New York Post, Osmond will be featured in an "Intimate Portrait" on the cable channel Lifetime on Monday, February 28th. While it is not clear if the recent separation will be included in the biography, a spokesperson for Lifetime says that the show is still in production.
