The 64-year-old reveals a sad truth from her twenties
Sharon Osbourne has opened up about a traumatic dog attack while pregnant, before losing the baby when she was younger.
The 64-year-old X Factor judge revealed that she’d suffered a tragic miscarriage at the age of 28 on a recent edition of US panel talk show, The Talk, after pet dogs at her parents’ home went for her as she visited them.
Telling her co-hosts the tale on Wednesday (17th November), the mother-of-three spoke openly about the shocking event.
‘When I was about, oh my lord, 28, I was attacked by a Doberman Pinscher and a Bernese Mountain Dog,’ she began, before explaining that her high-pitched voice was the cause for the dogs’ over excitement.
‘They were my parents’ and I came into the house – then I had a very high-pitched voice – and their ears went like this [motioning upwards]. I walked in the door, said hello and bang.’
Then, the music industry icon said that the Doberman jumped up, headbutted her, then pulled her to the ground before attacking her.
Thankfully, she was rescued when her mother Hope heard the commotion and was able to pull the dogs away from her. Yet the trauma didn’t stop there.
‘I went to hospital and I didn’t know, but I was pregnant and eventually lost the baby.
‘It’s the most frightening thing in the world and time goes in slow motion and fear – I was just so fearful I could do nothing. You’re like a rag doll.’
Incredibly sad stuff – but luckily, her relationship with pooches has clearly brightened up since, now being the owner of SIX dogs of her own now; and she’s also the proud mother of Kelly Osbourne, Jack Osbourne and eldest daughter Aimee, who has stayed largely out of the spotlight.
