Jack Osbourne has revealed that he suffers with multiple sclerosis.

The son of Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne was diagnosed after tests were taken when he lost 60% vision in his right eye earlier this year.

He was diagnosed with the condition three weeks after the birth of his daughter Pearl who is now two months old.

Jack Osbourne told Hello! magazine:

The timing was so bad. I'd just had a baby, work was going great - I kept thinking: 'Why now?'



He added: "While I was waiting for the final results, I got really, really angry. Then I got really sad for about two days, and after that I realised, being angry and upset is not going to do anything at this point - if anything it's only going to make it worse. 'Adapt and overcome' is my new motto."

His father added: "If it was me, you'd think: 'Ozzy had a reputation and it caught up with him', but Jack is such a good guy."

MS is an incurable neurological condition that damages the nerves and affects the transfer of messages around the body.

It can have a wide range of symptoms, including tiredness, temporary blindness, loss of co-ordination and speech difficulties.
