Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne had TV viewers in shock on Monday after announcing she was pregnant as part of an April Fools’ Day prank.
Ozzy Osbourne’s 60-year-old wife returned to her chat show The Talk on Monday after a two-week absence, and revealed that she had spent her time in Germany seeking treatment at an in vitro fertilisation clinic.
Opening the show, the teary-eyed cancer-survivor said: “I’ve got a special surprise for everybody… I was away for the last two weeks as you all know. I was in Germany and I want to share some good news. It’s interesting news, but it’s very good news. I went to an in vitro fertilisation clinic and I found a donor with an egg… and put together with Ozzy’s sperm and it was implanted in me and I have to say, I’m pregnant!”
Her emotional announcement prompted her co-hosts Sarah Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler and guest star Carnie Wilson to embrace her and express their delight at the news – but it wasn’t long before the mom-of-three came clean and admitted it was all a joke.
She subsequently confessed, “I have always wanted to get into acting and I just gave an Oscar-winning performance because it was an April Fools’ joke and I fooled you all!”
