Rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars can be tough, but Jack Osbourne is no stranger to tough times.
In June 2012, he received a shocking diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis and on Sept. 5, Jack’s wife, Lisa, 27, announced she had miscarried the couple’s child. But the couple are embracing a new silver lining, thanks to Jack's turn on DWTS.
“My schedule’s so busy, it helps,” Jack, 27, confides to Life & Style. “Every day I know exactly: I’m up, I’m at the studio. I like getting it done early. It’s been good.”
When asked what his doctors think of his turn on the ABC show, Jack tells the mag, "Doctors always have concerns. At the end of the day, I'm my own test. They can't tell me how I'm going to feel and there's no rhyme or reason to the way MS kind of unfolds itself. They just tell me to roll with it."
His family has been incredibly supportive as well. Jack tells the magazine that his sister and former DWTS star Kelly, 28, told him, “Smile, remember your routine and just enjoy the moment.” Mom Sharon Osbourne started crying before Jack’s performance, and his proud father and rock legend, Ozzy Osbourne, gave him a thumbs-up before he got his scores.
