AceShowbiz - Jack Osbourne is determined to keep his family healthy and safe amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The son of rocker Ozzy and "The Talk" host Sharon told Entertainment Tonight he's trying to keep spirits up among his nearest and dearest, especially since he and Ozzy are high risk for Covid-19, due to his multiple sclerosis and the Black Sabbath star's Parkinson's disease.
"I'm doing great you know. Just been kind of keeping my head down and trying to stay as healthy as possible," said Jack.
On 71-year-old Ozzy's wellbeing, he added, "He's a little depressed because he can't do anything. And he's fallen victim to watching the news all day."
"I'm like, 'Dude, turn that crap off. (Watch) a little bit in the morning, a little bit at night. Get the you know, the broad strokes. But let's unplug the IV of news right now," he explained. "Here's the thing, I am not letting a disease started by bats kill my dad. That's not how this is going, ok?" Seemingly referencing the infamous story of how his father once bit the head off of a bat during a concert in 1982, he quipped, "This is not some giant revenge plot from bats to get my dad back."
While Jack and his family are trying to stay safe amid the outbreak, the TV star said he's trying to make the most of his time on lockdown and spending it with his kids.
"There's like this looming shadow of impending doom, and like, 'Oh my god, I can't believe this is happening'," the star, who shares daughters Pearl, eight, Andy, four, and Minnie, two, with ex-wife actress Lisa Stelly, reflected. "But then I'm on a really good routine at home. I'm exercising every day, I'm like being one of those (people). Trying to do good at home."
