Her granddaughter Pearl is just a few weeks old, but Sharon Osbourne says she’s already made a big impact on the whole family. In an interview with Parade.com, the self-confessed “grandmother from hell” gushes over the tiny new addition and shares some words of parenting wisdom for her son Jack.
On becoming a grandmother: “There is nothing like it. She’s just amazing. It’s brought us all closer together. It’s like a celebration in your home. I am going to be a grandmother from hell because I would do everything you are not meant to do. I’m going to spoil her rotten.”
On her parenting advice to Jack: “It’s the same old: don’t waste a second because it goes too quickly. Before you know it she’ll be driving or going on her first date and it will seem just like yesterday that she was born.”
On turning 60 later this year: “I keep telling everybody in my family: don’t do it, I don’t want a party, I don’t want a surprise party. I want to spend it very quietly. I really don’t want a big deal but not because of how old I am. I embrace it! But when you get to a certain age, birthdays don’t mean the same thing anymore.”
