Television personality Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
The 26-year-old had tests taken after losing 60 percent of the vision in his right eye last year.
He has gone public in an attempt to raise awareness of the incurable neurological condition.
Multiple sclerosis damages he nerves and can affect the transfer of messages around the body, and has symptoms including tiredness, temporary blindness and speech difficulties.
He was diagnosed just three weeks after the birth of his daughter Pearl.
"I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, 'Why now?' " Osbourne told People magazine.
"I've got a family and that's what's supposed to be the most important thing."
