Ozzy Osbourne's Son Reveals What the Rocker Refuses to Take On as a Grandfather

Jack Osbourne disclosed that, although his famous parents, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, are affectionate grandparents, the legendary Black Sabbath singer has boundaries regarding specific child-care responsibilities.

Now 37 and soon to feature in the next season of Fox's "Special Forces: World's Toughest Test," the former "The Osbournes" star spoke candidly about balancing his demanding career and fatherhood during a chat with Fox News Digital.

Jack is the proud father to daughters Andy Rose, 7, Minnie Theodora, 5, and Maple Artemis, 1, with his fiancée Aree Gearhart. He also has an 11-year-old daughter, Pearl, from his previous marriage to Lisa Stelly.

Osbourne shared with Fox News Digital that while Ozzy and Sharon occasionally enjoy looking after the girls, they do have certain reservations.

"They won't do it at my house. It's a little easier for them if we drop the girls with them," Osbourne said. "The good thing is – outside of the baby – it's that they can handle it now, you know, they're much easier. The kids can tell you what they need when they need it."

The native of the U.K. clarified that while Sharon is open to handling diaper changes, Ozzy firmly prefers to steer clear.

"My dad is like, ‘Hell, no. Like, no,'" he said. "Because my dad's in that era where, like, men don't touch diapers. Like, that's not that's not what dads do."

Osbourne continued, noting that the rock legend has another non-negotiable rule when overseeing his granddaughters.

"It's funny," Osbourne noted. "If my kids are at the house and like they all want to get into bed and watch TV with my mom, my dad is like, ‘Nope.’ And he like, gets out of the bed and like, goes. He's like, 'No, I'm not doing that.'"

He continued, "I'm like, ‘Why?’ He's like, 'I don't want them going to school being like, 'I was in bed with my grandpa.' He's like, ‘No, not dealing with it.’ And I'm like, ‘OK.’ I'm like, 'Fine, that's your boundary. That's your boundary.'"

Despite the rocker's battle with Parkinson's, Jack hopes his father is able to return to the stage.

"His nerve damage seems to have been kind of alleviated. So, you know, hopefully in the next year or so, I'm hoping that he'll be strong enough to at least start doing the odd show here and there."
