Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's son Jack Osbourne has revealed that just three weeks after the birth of his daughter Pearl, he discovered he has multiple sclerosis.

Jack Osbourne and his fiancée Lisa Stelly welcomed baby Pearl on 24 April, and just a few weeks later Jack was back at the same hospital after he lost most of the vision in his right eye.

The 26-year-old new father told Hello! magazine: "The timing was so bad. I'd just had a baby, work was going great… I kept thinking: 'Why now?'"

A neurologist confirmed Jack Osbourne's multiple sclerosis diagnosis last month.

Jack Osbourne's mother Sharon Osbourne said: "I keep thinking: 'What did I do wrong? What did I eat or drink when I was pregnant? I feel like it's somehow my fault."

Ozzy Osbourne added: "If it was me, you'd think: 'Ozzy had a reputation and it caught up with him', but Jack is such a good guy".

Jack said: "While I was waiting for the final results, I got really, really angry. Then I got really sad for about two days, and after that I realised: 'Being angry and upset is not going to do anything at this point, if anything it's only going to make it worse… 'adapt and overcome' is my new motto."

His fiancée Lisa Stelly revealed: "Jack will have to change his life for the better — get healthier, not get stressed — so I feel like this could almost be a blessing in disguise".

Jack Osbourne plans to combine daily drug treatment, holistic therapies and lifestyle changes, and is speaking out about multiple sclerosis to help raise awareness.
