Jack Osbourne’s 15-month-old daughter is a big fan of Ozzy

Jack then turned to his sister, Kelly Osbourne, updating her on a recent viral video featuring Maple. He recounted, “You haven’t seen the new video, where she’s pointing. We put on ‘Crazy Train,’ like an actual performance. She does the ‘I, I, I,’ but she’s pointing at the TV and going ‘Papa, Papa, Papa, Papa, Papa,’ on repeat like a broken record.”

The proud father, who also has daughters Pearl Clementine, Andy Rose, and Minnie Theodora from his previous marriage to Lisa Stelly, continued by humorously adding, “[But] in real life when she sees him, she’s like, ‘Oh f–k, there he is’.”
