Apart from announcing her pregnancy, Kelly also celebrated the completion of one year of sobriety recently.
Once again, instead of focusing on the better aspects of a person's life, the internet and family members have decided to light a fire under Kelly Osbourne. The famous personality and actor, who is the daughter of Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne, took to Instagram to share the news of her pregnancy with some pictures of the ultrasound. Her father, Ozzy Osbourne, managed to tell the internet about the sex of the baby way before Kelly could, Entertainment Tonight reported. "I mean, he's told everyone," she said, "....the gender of my baby before I ever got the chance to, and I'm just like, 'Aww Dad, come on. Like, come on, but I will say, every single day he does this little song and this little dance about how excited he is, and he is so excited that it's a boy. It's the first — out of me and my brother, it's the first boy, so, he's like planning all these things."
Being under the public eye, Kelly has always been the target of criticism and unnecessary scrutiny. After being away from the camera, Kelly spoke about her journey through sobriety and wrote, according to US Magazine, "I have spent the past year truly working on my mind body, and soul! I had to take a step out of the public eye away from work and give myself a chance to heal and figure out who the f**k I really am without a camera in my face."
"Thank you to my Mum and Dad for never giving up on me. I love my family with all my heart. Thank you to the friends who have walked the path of sobriety with me I could not have done this without their love and support. I can’t believe It’s been a year!!! I still don’t know who the f**k I am or what the f**k I want but I can wholeheartedly confess that I’m finally at peace with myself and truly starting to understand what true happiness is. I’m sorry if I let anyone down it was just time for me to work on me!" she continued.
After a relapse and another year of sobriety, Kelly shared the news on social media with an Instagram post. "What a difference a year can make! If you would have told me 365 days ago that I would be sober, happy, and about to be a mumma I would have laughed in your face. Life is truly amazing when you do the work. Thank you to everyone that has supported me on this journey. I love you all so much!!!!!!!" she wrote in the caption.
Kelly has also been vocal about her reservations about breastfeeding. She spoke about her decision on a recent Red Table Talk episode. “I have chosen to stay on my medication instead of breastfeeding and the judgment that I have received from my friends and also extended family (is wild),” she explained.
“I’m like, ‘Don’t you think I know that?'” she said, referring to comments about how she would miss out on the bonding period. “What kind of mother am I gonna be if I start going backwards if I start being self-destructive?” Doubling down on the decision, she expressed that it is the best course of action for both her and her child's life. “It has to be what’s best for me, what’s gonna be the best for my baby,” she said.
After being brought down for her weight, a live video from October 2020 showed Kelly losing a significant amount of weight. “That’s right mamma Mai I lost 85lbs since I last saw you. Can you believe it?” she replied to a friend's comment.
