Meet Sharon Osbourne’s Three Grown-Up Children
You might think you know the Osbournes until you read some headline about the heavy metal family. Since Ozzy and Sharon united, they have truly rocked television around the world. Let's dive into the lives of the duo and see how their 3 kids are doing now that they are all grown adults!
THE OSBOURNES BACK IN THE DAY
Back in 1979, Sharon was following Ozzy Osbourne out of the studio where he had just been fired from the band, Black Sabbath. She took over his management under her father Don Arden’s company. She kicked off Ozzy’s solo career with his 1980 debut album Blizzard of Oz. Since day one, Sharon has always been on Ozzy’s side.
THE OSBOURNES (2002)
Their relationship has really stood the test of time while also dealing with the strain that comes from living in the public eye. They were married in 1982 and they both made quite a few controversial headlines, but still stayed together through it all. In 2002, MTV brought us inside the heavy metal star’s family on The Osbournes.
The couple had three children together: Jack, Kelly, and Aimee Osbourne. Just in its first season, the reality TV show became the most-watched series ever on MTV. Some of the episodes were more lighthearted and filled with antics. But many times, viewers were shown many of the family’s hardships and struggles.
Sharon has been credited for bringing back the music career of the heavy metal rocker Ozzy. In the summer of 1996, the couple hosted the rock music festival that would celebrate its 10-year reign in 2006. The tour has had many hard rock artists and bands including Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, and Korn.
With the families many TV appearances and projects, it’s no surprise how wealthy the family has become over the years! By 2006, the couples’ net worth was reportedly at £100 million which is about $123 million. According to WealthyPersons.com, the Osbourne's are reported to have a net worth of over $250 million as of early 2020.

The eldest daughter of the couple refused to be in the family’s reality show and appears in only 9 episodes of the show but her face is blurred out. As an actress and musician, she lives a more private life compared to her younger siblings.
Sharon shared with The Talk that Aimee moved out of the house at the age of 16. Her mother explained, “She felt, too, that she didn’t want to grow up in front of the camera. She hated the idea, it was appalling to her.” But Aimee made her way back to the screen in her own way.

KELLY'S DATING LIFE
Kelly has made headlines with her ex-boyfriends. After her four-month relationship with Jimmy Q ended in August 2019, Kelly decided to take some "me" time. "I think love is a lot of work,” she told Us Weekly. “It’s a lot of work and I hope one day I will [find love again]. But [I’m] not saying yes, not saying no.”
DANCING WITH THE STARS
From the Viennese Waltz to the Rumba, Kelly broke out her dance shoes for Dancing with the Stars alongside Louis van Amstel, a Dutch ballroom champion. On 17 November 2009, the final three were announced: Osbourne, singer Mýa, and pop legend Donny Osmond. In the final, Osbourne and her partner placed third.
THE MASKED SINGER
In season 2 of The Masked Singer Kelly was revealed to be the Ladybug. She was safe up until episode 7 where she was voted off. Kelly and her mother, Sharon, are set to appear on the show's first-ever aftershow of the singing competition "After the Mask," alongside Jojo Siwa who was also eliminated in the current season.
As the only son of the couple, Jack never stepped away from the spotlight. He made a couple of guest appearances on season 6 of Dawson’s Creek and That ‘70s Show on the season 5 episode "Misty Mountain Hop". He and his sister, Kelly, both made a cameo appearance on Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002).
The youngest of the three has always been drawn to adventure and the unknown. In 2005, he premiered his TV docu-series Jack Osbourne: Adrenaline Junkie where he travels the world seeking rushes of adrenaline. In 2016, he and his father made a world detour. Most recently, he’s been a paranormal investigator looking for ghosts in Portals to Hell since 2019.
Jack was sadly diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis at 26 years old, but he has chosen to look at the positives of every situation. “I hate wasting days,” he said in 2017, “I’m always doing something and trying to accomplish something, whether it’s work, something social or doing something active. So for that, I’m appreciative of it.”
Jack married Lisa Stelly back in 2012 and the couple had three children together: Pearl, Andy Rose, and Minnie. While the couple couldn’t make it work and they divorced in 2018, they still co-parent the three grandkids of Sharon and Ozzy. Jack moved in with his girlfriend Aree Gearhart in 2019. They recently spent Christmas together in 2020!
