Sharon and Ozzy's son diagnosed after losing over 60% of vision in one eye
The dare-devil TV presenter Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Multiple Sclerosis (MS) after suffering from an episode in which he lost over half of the vision in his right eye.
In the midst of planning his wedding, 26-year old Jack has also recently become a father to a baby girl, who he and fiancée Lisa Stelly have named Pearl.
Speaking about the diagnosis to Hello, Jack said: "The timing was so bad. I'd just had a baby, work was going great... I kept thinking: 'Why now?'"
The disease, which is incurable, is a neurological condition that affects the Central Nervous System, damaging nerve fibres and causing a range of symptoms.
Parents Sharon and Ozzy have also been shocked by the diagnosis of their son, who is known for his love of outdoor activites and extreme sports.
"I kept thinking: ' What did I do wrong? What did I eat or drink when I was pregnant?' I feel like it's somehow my fault," Sharon admitted to Hello.
Despite the initial shock, Jack is keen to stay positive and will be combining general lifestyle changes, drug treatments and holistic therapies to treat the condition.
"While I was waiting for the final results, I got really, really angry," Jack explained. "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."
Tweeting to thank his Twitter followers for all the messages of support that have flooded in since the announcement, Jack said: "Thank you all so much for the kind and inspirational words. It means a lot. #adaptandovercome."
