Rather than allow the family the pleasure of breaking the news, it was decided Hello Magazine’s Twitter would break the exclusive over several messages. Including the name and birth weight. Followed by a series of @ replied congratulations that were re-tweeted by the family. Among the re-tweets was a message from 25-year-old Osbourne about being nine years sober.
Of the pregnancy news, the new father said he was shocked because he’d only just started dating his baby’s mother: “I think I responded with ‘That’s interesting.’ What do you say? If we’d been trying for two years, of course you’d be like ‘Awesome’. But we met in May and found out in August. I told Lisa: ‘You need to give me a week to really take this in’. I had that time to get my head around the whole situation.”
