Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are partying! The musician and his wife commemorated their 40th marriage anniversary on Monday.
“40 years ago today! Happy anniversary my love,” wrote the 73-year-old Black Sabbath rocker, posting a photo with his life partner.
In the snapshot, Sharon, 69, appears in a white dress and white veil while holding a bouquet of white and pink flowers. Ozzy, for her part, stands over her in a white suit with a vine of leaves around her neck.
Sharon also commemorated the occasion with a post on Instagram, writing that “2022 is a special year” for her.
“It marks 40 years of marriage to my dear Ozzy. We met when I was 18, for 52 years we have been friends, lovers, husband and wife, grandparents and soulmates. Always by each other’s side. I love you Ozzy~ Sharrrrrrron,” he wrote accompanying a photo of the couple.
In June, Sharon revealed to her followers that she was headed to Los Angeles to be by her husband’s side as he underwent surgery.
In addition to the operation, Sharon said that in the coming weeks her son, Jack, would also welcome his second daughter and made brief mention of their upcoming wedding anniversary. At the time, she said that they had no plans to commemorate the day as it was all up to Ozzy.
After the operation, the musician said that he was recovering comfortably at home. “I am definitely feeling the love and support from all my fans and I send everyone a big thank you for your thoughts, prayers and well wishes during my recovery.”
Sharon and Ozzy married in 1982. Together, the couple has three children: Aimée, Kelly, and Jack. Although they briefly separated in May 2016 after 33 years of marriage, when various sources claimed that Ozzy had been unfaithful, they finally reconciled in September of that year. Since then they have been inseparable.
