(LOS ANGELES) — Jack Osbourne has revealed to People that he has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Osbourne, the 26-year-old son of rocker Ozzy and America’s Got Talent judge Sharon, was told the news of his illness only two weeks after the April 24 birth of his infant daughter, Pearl Clementine.
In an interview with the magazine, Osbourne says, “I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, ‘Why now?’”
MS affects individuals in different ways, but it damages the central nervous system, causing problems with muscle control. It can also lead to problems with vision, balance, feeling and thinking.
Osbourne, who is engaged to Lisa Stelly, went on to tell People, “I’ve got a family and that’s what’s supposed to be the most important thing.”
