Former reality stars Sharon, and Ozzy Osbourne are fun grandparents who always get criticized by one of their adult children. And soon, they will be playing with two more grandkids.
Hollywood A-list couple Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. The pair are proud parents of three adult children.
Former talk show host, Sharon, took to her Instagram account on July 4, 2022, to commemorate her and rock musician Ozzy's wedding anniversary.

The British native posted a snapshot of her and her husband holding hands while donning coordinating black outfits and wrote:
"2022 is a special year for me. It marks 40 years of marriage to my darling Ozzy. We first met when I was 18, over 52 years we have been friends, lovers, husband and wife, grandparents and soulmates. Always at each other’s side. I love you, Ozzy."
The lovebirds first crossed paths in 1970 but only pursued a romantic relationship in 1979. Ozzy and Sharon wed in 1982 and later welcomed daughters Aime, Kelly, and son Jack in just two years.
Their firstborn, Aime, arrived in September 1983, followed by their second child, Kelly, born in October 1984. The couple welcomed their only son, Jack, in November 1985.
Out of the three Osbourne siblings, Aimee is the only child not widely known by the masses, though, like all her family members, she pursued a career in show business.
SHARON & OZZY ARE PROUD GRANDPARENTS
While Aime and her sister Kelly have yet to have kids, their brother Jack is already a dad to three girls, Minnie, Pearl, and Andy, whom he shares with his former wife, Lisa Stelly.
In addition, their dad has five more grandchildren, Elijah, Harry, Isabelle, Kitty, and Maia, through his older kids. Before meeting Sharon, Ozzy was married to Thelma Riley, with whom he welcomed three children, Jessica, Elliot, and Louis.
His current wife, Sharon, revealed in 2013 that she was retiring from showbiz to become a full-time grandmother. At the time, the British-American music manager was a judge on the reality singing competition, "The X Factor."
She said she would be done with showbiz at the end of that year and return to Los Angeles, where she would settle down in an OAP lifestyle with her spouse, Ozzy.
Friends divulged Sharon also wanted to spend time with her son Jack's then-16-month-old daughter, Pearl, and "put her feet up." A pal told Sunday People then that the author was ready to lead a low-key life:
"She is ready to retire, give up the showbiz world and lead a quiet life. She is relishing the idea that she will be able to spend all the time in the world with her little granddaughter Pearl."
JACK 'GRILLS' HIS KIDS AFTER THEY HAVE FUN WITH GRANDPARENTS
Although she embraced being a first-time grandmother with Pearl, Sharon revealed before her first grandchild was born that she would leave parenting duties to Jack.
The "America's Got Talent" star and doting mother of three said she would go soft on her grandchildren instead of disciplining them.
Sharon admitted that she would deliberately spoil her grandkids and indulge them, then leave the teaching to their parents:
"You can spoil, you can indulge, and then say, 'Okay, now let your parents be the ones to teach you right from wrong. I'm not. What do you want? Have it!"
In August 2019, the TV personality told People TV that she loves being a grandmother and "I just adore those little girls, they're angels."
She revealed her granddaughters always attend their grandfather's shows and sit next to the stage just like their children used to do when they were young.
When asked what her husband Ozzy was like as a grandad, Sharon said he was adorable spending time with their grandchildren:
"He's so cute with them, you know. He watches everything, from the baby channel on with them, and they watch old movies and cartoons."
Sharon divulged that the metal band singer does a lot of drawing with their grandkids. Moreover, the girls usually wake them up very early in the mornings, and they have a group meeting on what to have for breakfast.
"The Osbournes" star shared that whenever Jack and Stelly ask them not to spoil the children, she and Ozzy do the exact opposite:
"They tell me don't give them to eat and don't give them chocolate and don't give them this...They get it all when they're here, and I know that they get grilled when they go home. I tell them [grandkids] 'Don't say anything. What goes on at Nan's - stays at Nan's."
But not everything stays at the grandparents' house. Jack told Larry King in August 2016 that his parents spoil the kids rotten because whenever they come back home, they come with toys and clothes.
SHARON & OZZY ARE EXPECTING TWO MORE GRANDKIDS
In March 2022, Jack announced on social media that he and his fiancee, interior designer Aree Gearhart, were expecting their first child together, per Us Magazine.
He posted a photo of himself cradling Gearhart's apparent baby bump and captioned the post: "@seecreature and I are expecting a baby in the summer! Baby No.4, here we come!"
The English media personality is not the only Osbourne with exciting news. Jack's older sister, Kelly, announced in May 2022 that she and her boyfriend, Slipknot star Sid Wilson, were expecting their first baby together.
The fashion designer posted a selfie holding an ultra-sound photo and told fans that she had been away from social media for a while but that she had good reason:
"I am over the moon to announce that I am going to be a Mumma. To say that I am happy does not quite cut it. I am ecstatic!"
Kelly's father could not be happier with the pregnancy news as he and his wife would be babysitting two more grandchildren on the way. Ozzy revealed to Entertainment Tonight that his daughter was six months into her pregnancy.
"Kelly is big, and she's beautiful, and I love it," he said proudly. The loving granddad has a welcome gift already in mind for his unborn grandchild. He said the first thing he would buy was a microphone.
