Ozzy Osbourne is About to Have 10 Grandchildren
Jack’s father, rocker Ozzy Osbourne, counts baby Maple as his ninth grandchild. He has four from Jack, two from his son Louis (Maia and Elijah) and three from his daughter Jessica (Isabelle, Kitty and Harry) — Louis and Jessica are two of his three children from his first marriage to Thelma Riley — and one grandchild on the way via his daughter Kelly Osbourne, who is also a “Dancing With the Stars” alum.
Kelly competed on “Dancing With the Stars” season nine with partner Louis van Amstel. They also finished in third place, behind Mya and Dmitry Chaplin (2nd) and Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson Herjavec (1st).

She revealed the big news in an Instagram post of the ultrasound picture and wrote, “I know that I have been very quiet these past few months so I thought I would share with you all as to why… 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!”
After Jack announced baby Maple’s birth, grandma Sharon Osbourne posted her own Instagram announcement, writing, “Ozzy and I are over the 🌙 @seecreature & Maple are happy and healthy! @jackosbourne fasten your seatbelt.”
