Kelly Osbourne must be one of Hollywood’s rare offspring to have witnessed an enduring-albeit bumpy- marriage first hand.

Today she announced her engagement to Matthew Mosshart (brother of The Kills’  Alison Mosshart), and as she embarks on a life of marital bliss Kelly reveals she’s “never felt so close to another human being, ever. People say we’re co-dependent but we just want to be together all the time.”

If that sounds like the gushings of a Year Nine extended Facebook status, at least Kelly will be reminded of her parent’s topsy-turvy (but surviving) marriage every day as she looks down at her engagement ring- which has been designed to look like an earring that Ozzy once wore.

As for Matthew Mosshart, who flaunts Ozzy’s long, dark locks but also looks like Harry Styles and Cara Delevigne’s love child, he has apparently “sacrificed everything” and moved to LA from New York to be closer to Kelly.

He also proposed while on holiday on the Carribean island of Anguilla. He is evidently excelling in the boyfriend stakes so far.

Let’s hope, for Kelly’s sake, he does not try to strangle her after four bottles of vodka as Ozzy once did to Sharon. Or be forced to deny divorce rumours after going hard on the alcohol and drugs again. Or bite the head off a bat.

Ozzy’s antics aside, what Matthew and Kelly really stand to learn from the Osbourne golden couple is how to endure over 30 years of marriage in the face of cancer, addiction, pooing pets and life’s many other ills.

Take this quote from Sharon about how Ozzy cared for her during her treatment for colon cancer in 2002.

“He slept in a chair by the side of my bed for 18 months. He was scared that if he closed his eyes for a moment, I would be dead when he opened them. He would carry me to the bathroom when I wet myself because of the medication, then shower me and put me back to bed.

“When my hair was falling out he would pick it out of my food: there was no disgust there, because he loves me unconditionally, just as I do him.”

If that’s anything to go by, there’s hope Kelly Osbourne and Matthew Mosshart might be able to avoid the Hollywood divorce machine after all.
