Ozzy Osbourne ‘wants to renew vows with wife Sharon to celebrate 40 years of marriage’

Ozzy Osbourne reportedly hopes to renew his wedding vows to celebrate 40 years of marriage to his wife Sharon after undergoing life-changing surgery.

The 73-year-old Black Sabbath legend underwent a grueling operation on Monday to adjust the pins inserted into his neck and spine following a near-fatal ATV accident in 2003 and subsequent fall in 2013.

Sharon, 69, flew back to Los Angeles earlier this week from London to support the rocker.

But despite his health problems and Parkinson’s disease, friends say he wants to make a big effort to exchange vows again, four decades after they wed.

A companion of the couple told The mirror as the TV legend hoped to celebrate the joyous occasion on Maui – the The Hawaiian island is where they first exchanged their vows in July 1982.

They told the publication: “Ozzy may be waiting to get his neck and back fixed after an outstretched leg pain that left him unable to walk for long periods.

“But while that was his hope, he always wants to give Sharon something special for her 40th birthday.

“They renewed their vows in Las Vegas, but he was hoping to fly them to Maui for a break to reminisce about their big day.”

The family friend added: “He hopes his recovery will be short and the nerve damage removed so he can treat his wife.

‘Ozzy may have been through the mill in recent years, but his spirit and desire to show Sharon how their love burns bright remains.’

MailOnline has contacted a representative for further comments.

The couple renewed their vows in 2017 in Las Vegas after it emerged that Ozzy had been unfaithful to Sharon. At the time, he said: ‘For me, this was really our royal wedding day.

‘This is what I’ll remember.

‘Sharon and I have been through so much, and this honestly feels like a new beginning.’

On Thursday, Ozzy confirmed he was “recovering comfortably” at home after undergoing “major” spinal surgery this week.

Following the procedure, the music icon took to Twitter on Thursday to tell fans he was back home and thank them for their well-wishes.

Ozzy, who also suffers from Parkinson’s disease, tweeted: “I am now home from the hospital recovering comfortably.

‘I’m definitely feeling the love and support from all my fans and I send you all a big thank you for your thoughts, prayers and best wishes during my recovery.’

Photos taken on Tuesday showed Ozzy being pushed into a Los Angeles hospital parking lot while wife Sharon, 69, watched after being discharged just a day after surgery.

This comes after Sharon said Ozzy is “on the road to recovery” and is “doing well” after he underwent a major procedure on Monday that could “determine the rest of his life”.

In an update to her Instagram story on Tuesday, she wrote: “Our family would like to express so much gratitude for the massive amount of love and support that led to Ozzy’s surgery!

‘Ozzy is doing well and on the road to recovery! His love means the world to him.

A family source recently told Page Six that the metal influencer would be going through a “long convalescence” that would likely require a nurse at home for some time.

They said: ‘Ozzy is 73 years old and any kind of surgery when you get older is difficult,’ they added. ‘This is very important. He’s having the pins in his neck and back realigned from when he had a fall in 2019.’
