Sharon Osbourne has revealed that her three-year-old granddaughter has tested positive for Covid-19, forcing herself and Ozzy to quarantine at home in Los Angeles.
The 67-year-old music manager made the confession during an interview on US panel show The Talk on Monday, after she was unable to appear in the studio, having to dial in from home instead.
“I was meant to be in the studio, I was so looking forward to it,” she said. “And then, unfortunately, one of my granddaughters has come down with Covid. She’s okay, she’s doing good.”
Sharon assured the hosts she is well and has not test positive herself, and also confirmed that her son Jack, 34, who lives with multiple sclerosis, is also in good health.
“Her daddy doesn’t have it. Her mommy doesn’t have it. Her sisters don’t. She got it from somebody who works for my son,” Sharon added. “And it just goes to show you, she’s three years of age, that children can get Covid.”
It comes after rocker Ozzy Osbourne revealed he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease earlier this year. The Black Sabbath singer announced the devastating news on US television show Good Morning America in January, revealing he found out about the neurodegenerative disorder after a fall in February 2019.
“It’s been terribly challenging for us all,” he said. “I did my last show [on] New Year’s Eve (2018) at The Forum. “Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves and I found out that I have a mild form.”
The singer, 71, said he’s on the mend though, revealing that he’s taking a host of medications. “I got a numbness down this arm [from] the surgery; my legs keep going cold,” he said.
“I don’t know if that’s the Parkinson’s or what, you know, but that’s — see, that’s the problem. Because they cut nerves when they did the surgery. I’d never heard of nerve pain, and it’s a weird feeling.”
His wife Sharon, who is also his manager, added: “There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s, it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
