Jack Osbourne has spoken for the first time about becoming a new dad, revealing the "instant love" he felt for his cute baby girl, Pearl, who was born two weeks ago at LA's plush Cedars Sinai hospital.
Introducing the tiny tot in this week's HELLO! magazine, in a stunning photo shoot that also features his actress fiancée Lisa Stelly and his mother Sharon, the 25-year-old media star says: "People say when you have a kid it’s like instant love, but unless you've experienced it, it's impossible to comprehend.
The moment I saw her I felt more love than I'd ever felt for anything. It was the weirdest, most overwhelming thing."
However, he admits it took him a while to get his head around the news he was going to be a father. He and Lisa, 26, who he met in a nightclub, had only been together for three months when she discovered she was pregnant.
"I think I responded with 'That's interesting'," he recalls of the moment Lisa broke it to him. "What do you say? If we'd been trying for two years, of course you'd be like 'Awesome!' But we met in May and found out in August.
"I told Lisa, 'You need to give me a week to really take this in'. I had that time to get my head around the whole situation.'"
With mum Sharon and rock legend dad Ozzy out of town, Jack sought the advice of his former nanny, Melinda. "I just said, 'S*** What do I do? She talked me off the ledge," he reveals.
He and Lisa are now planning a small wedding later this year. "It’s incredible to see Jack holding his baby girl, walking around so confidently," says first time grandmother Sharon, 59. "He's very nurturing and he and Lisa are so good together."
