Kelly Osbourne has fought important battles against addictions, so the triumphs that come do not hesitate to share them with her followers.
Through her Instagram account, the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne showed that she is in the best stage of her life, not only because she is expecting her first child with Slipknot’s rock boyfriend, Sid Wilson, but because she has completed a year of sobriety.
“The past year has been one of the most difficult of my life and I think it’s time to share that with you. I’ll be brief, things got really ugly,” he wrote. “I gave up everything in my life but, above all, I gave up. Life became so much for me. The only way I knew it would help me function was to self-medicate and move from project to project, so I never had to focus on what was really happening to me. Something had to give… and so it was.”
He continued, “I’ve been truly working on my mind, body and soul since last year! I had to step out of the public eye, out of work, to have a chance to heal and discover who I really am without a camera in my face. I want to take this moment to thank my brother @jackosbourne who answered my phone a year ago and picked me up from where I had fallen again, without judging me,” the 37-year-old TV star wrote.
In addition, Kelly Osbourne thanked her family for never giving up and always accompanying her at all times, and remembered all her friends who have accompanied her during this long journey of sobriety with love, and empathy.
“I can’t believe it… It’s been a year! I still don’t know who the hell I am or what I want, but I can honestly confess that I am finally at peace with myself and really starting to understand what true happiness is. Sorry if I disappointed anyone, it was time for them to work with me! I love you guys!”
Earlier this month, Kelly revealed her pregnancy on the same social network by sharing a photo of herself holding a copy of her sonogram.
“I know I’ve been very quiet these last few months, so I thought I’d share with all of you the reason… I’m thrilled to announce that I’m going to be a mom. Saying I’m happy isn’t enough. I’m ecstatic,” she said at the time.
Last year, Kelly shared that her battle with addictions had “robbed” her of many of life’s milestones, such as having children.
“I feel very behind. As a woman, I would have liked to have been married and have children already. My brother [Jack] has three daughters and I would have loved to have children already, but that wasn’t in my plans yet.”
However, Kelly admitted that “I wouldn’t have been any kind of mother because I was that crazy addict who said, ‘Oh yeah, I’ll stop taking drugs when I’m pregnant because I have to.’ It’s crazy that I came up with that.”
