Sharon Osbourne Doesn't Want to Be Called Grandma

The TV star is thrilled that son Jack Osbourne is having a baby -- but she has a few other names she'd rather be called

Sharon Osbourne is thrilled to become a grandmother for the first time. After her son, Jack Osbourne, announced he and fiancee Lisa Stelly are expecting a baby, grandmum-to-be Sharon gushed her excitement on Wednesday's episode of The Talk.

"Our family is growing, and I love that," the mom of three said on her CBS talk show. "It's just a blessing, it's a joy. They're going to have a baby in April. Yes!"

Although her youngest son admitted he was "a little nervous" during the big reveal on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Sharon is ready to join husband Ozzy Osbourne (who has four grandchildren from his two oldest children from a previous marriage) in grandparenthood. And the couple is ready to give their grandchild "everything."

"That's what comes with being a grandmother," she says. "You can spoil, you can indulge, and then say, 'Okay, now let your parents be the ones to teach you right from wrong. I'm not. What do you want? Have it!'"

But one thing the 59-year-old television personality won't be giving her grandchild is the right to call her grandma: "The baby's going to have to call me Shazza or Misses O," she says. "In London, that's Sharon, the abbreviation is Shazza. They call you, 'Shazza.' 'Hello Shazza!'"
