Jack Osbourne wants to raise “good citizens”.
The 32-year-old reality star has daughters Pearl, six, and Andy, three, and five-month-old Minnie with his estranged wife Lisa Stelly, and whilst some parents might have a plan for their children’s lives, Jack insists he doesn’t care what his brood grow up to be as long as they’re “good human beings”.
He said: “I think people put so much emphasis into, ‘Oh, I’m going to raise my kid to be like this. I’m going to raise my kid to be like that,’ but for me, I’m in the business of making good citizens. I just want a good human being to just do good. That’s it. I don’t care what it is as long as it’s positive and good, and you’re not making some weird life choice that ends up hurting people. Like I said, I’m in the business of making good citizens.”
The Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour star recently hit a bump in the road in terms of his family life after he and his wife Lisa - whom he married in 2012 - announced their decision to divorce, but he says things are “going good” between them in the wake of their split.
Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, he said: “Things are going good. We’re trucking along and it is what it is.”
The Osbournes star and Lisa took to social media last month to explain their decision to split, which had come as a shock to many fans of the pair.
They wrote: "Hello! So the news about us separating has probably come as a bit of a shock to everyone. But, we just want to clear the air and share with you what's going on.
"So, first and foremost, we absolutely still love each other. Our family is the most important thing in our lives, and we tried everything we could for many years to make this work.
"What's best for our family right now is that we separate lovingly, and remain best friends who are committed to raising our children together. We had 7 beautiful years of being a couple, filled with the most amazing moments and we will be eternally grateful to one another for that. We also have 3 wonderful children who we cherish more than anything.
"We are disappointed but feel confident that we will continue to grow our relationship as co-parents and best friends. Lots of love, Jack and Lisa."
