Kelly Osbourne recently announced she’s pregnant with Slipknot star Sid Wilson’s baby – the guy not only known for his heavy metal music but his crazy masks.
On Thursday, May 12 the 37-year-old daughter of rock legend Ozzy Osbourne revealed she was pregnant with her first baby, saying she is “over the moon”.
In the Instagram post the English reality star delivered the news with a couple of photos showing her holding a sonogram with the caption: “I know I have been very quiet these past few months so I thought I would share with you all as to why… I am over the moon to announce I am going to be a mumma. To say I am happy does not quite cut it. I am ecstatic!”
Kelly and Sid
The pair were first romantically linked in January 2022 but made it Insta official in a cute post in which Kelly explained they’d been friends for 23 years.
She wrote: “After 23 years of friendship I can’t believe where we have ended up! You are my best friend, my soulmate and I am so deeply in love with you Sidney George Wilson.”
People reports the couple first met in 1999 when Slipknot toured with Ozzfest, the music festival founded by her parents Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. Fast forward 23 years and the publication confirmed they were together after she wished Sid a happy birthday for his 45th in January.
Who is Sid Wilson?
For those not into heavy metal, the name Sid Wilson may be a mystery. The performer from Iowa is the keyboard player and DJ for Grammy-winning rock band Slipknot after joining them in 1997.
If you’ve heard their music, Wilson is the guy who makes all the horror noises, scratching and menacing sound effects in the background.
The 45-year-old also performs solo as DJ Starscream and, when with the band, is known to love stage-diving. In 2008 he broke both heels when he jumped 10ft from the stage. Ouch.
All members of Slipknot have worn some crazy masks over the years and the band has amassed quite a range in their collection.
Frontman Corey Taylor told Planet Radio in 2014: “People like me, Clown (Shawn Crahan), Sid and a couple of others, we change our (masks) drastically because, for me, the mask is a representation of the person on the inside and nobody stays the same over time. That’s my belief.
“With every album my mask has evolved. It’s almost like having two different faces but it’s the same person.”
Most of Wilson’s masks centre around a gas mask look and have even resembled skulls. Most recently, Wilson’s mask has been an animatronic death mask of his own face, covered partly by a large black hood and robe.
