2012 has shaped up to be quite the year for Jack Osbourne. Just days after the reality TV star and son of “Black Sabbath” rocker Ozzy Osbourne married aspiring actress Lisa Stelly, he and a friend rescued a woman from drowning, the Inquisitr reported.
Osbourne, who has been honeymooning in Hawaii with Stelly since their wedding on Sunday, was on a beach on Western Hawaii’s Kona-Kohala coast when another female vacationer suffered a heart attack while swimming near the shore.
Osbourne and a friend jumped into the ocean and brought the woman back to shore. While waiting for an ambulance to arrive on the scene, they reportedly performed CPR on her.
“Really proud of Jack and his friend Tyler who saved a woman on the beach yesterday who'd had a heart attack and drown [sic],” Stelly wrote in a tweet on Tuesday. “They resuscitated her until the ambulance came. We just found out she’s in a stable condition! Awesome!”
Osbourne and Stelly announced their engagement in September and gave birth to a daughter, Pearl, seven months later. Then in June, Osbourne surprised fans by revealing that he had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an incurable autoimmune disease.
In an interview with Hello!, Osbourne said that he received the diagnosis just two weeks after Stelly gave birth. “The timing was so bad,” said Osbourne. “I'd just had a baby, work was going great ... I kept thinking: 'Why now?'”
But thanks in part to the support of his Stelly, Osbourne managed to find a positive outlook on the news.
"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 realized: '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,” he said.
“Honestly, I’m fine,” he later added, in an appearance on “The Talk.” “Ultimately, that is the toughest thing with this disease that I’m learning, one minute you can be fine, and the next I went blind in my right eye. It’s a completely unpredictable disease.”
Since the big day has gotten closer, however, the couple have seemed markedly upbeat about things. 'I think me and Jack are doing better than everyone else, honestly,” said Stelly. 'We’re just really trying to stay positive and we don’t really have much time to be sad, because we have diapers to change and a little girl to look at and smile at.”
'We’re just having fun. He’s going to be OK,” she added.
