Kelly Michelle Lee Osbourne (born October 27, 1984) is an English television personality, singer, award winning actress, radio presenter and fashion designer. She is the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. Osbourne first rose to fame in "The Osbournes", the Emmy-winning reality TV series about her famous father and his family.

Early life

Osbourne was born in the City of Westminster, London, the middle child of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, the others being her older sister Aimee and her younger brother Jack. She also has two half-siblings: Jessica Hobbs and Louis John Osbourne from Ozzy's first marriage. She also had an unofficially "adopted" brother, Robert Marcato, who Sharon and Ozzy adopted after Marcato's mother died. Kelly grew up traveling with her father as he went on tour, and lived in more than 20 homes. [No byline (2002-07-01), "In the Pink". "People". 58 (1):60]

"The Osbournes"

Kelly Osbourne and the rest of her immediate family (without Aimee) were thrust into the international spotlight with the MTV reality show "The Osbournes". It chronicled their day-to-day life, and the show became a runaway hit for its portrayal of a dysfunctional, though close-knit, family where metal music, profanity and other harshness were a daily part of life. Kelly, the middle child, emerged (according to "Rolling Stone") as "a wickedly funny, brutally honest, pint-size, potty-mouthed spitfire."Eliscu, Jenny (2002-12-12), "Kelly Osbourne". "Rolling Stone". (911):76]
