Kelly Osbourne has revealed a significant change to her son Wilson’s name


In a candid revelation on a recent episode of “The Osbournes” podcast, Kelly Osbourne shared the personal journey and resolution of a significant disagreement between her and her partner, Sid Wilson, over the naming of their first child, born in 2022.

The couple initially named their son Sidney Wilson, a decision that did not fully sit well with Osbourne due to the exclusion of her surname in the child’s official name.

Osbourne, aged 39, described this disagreement over their son’s surname as “the biggest fight” she and Wilson have ever had. She expressed a strong desire for their son to bear both parents’ last names, a suggestion that initially met with resistance from Wilson.

“We had a huge fight. I feel that I was forced into doing something I didn’t wanna do, and I can never ever, forgive him for that, but we can move on,” Osbourne disclosed.

The dispute, which centered on the tradition and significance of surnames, led the couple to seek couples therapy. Through “lots of eye-opening conversations” and professional guidance, Wilson came to appreciate Osbourne’s perspective. As a result, they have decided to legally change their son’s name to include both of their surnames, marking a significant step towards mutual understanding and compromise in their relationship.

“We both made our child, so he should have both of our last names,” Osbourne asserted, emphasizing the importance of equal representation of both parents in their child’s identity.

The story just shows the challenges that couples may face in decision-making but also the power of communication and therapy in resolving disputes. It raises broader questions about traditions, modern parenting decisions, and the significance of names in personal identity.

The couple’s decision to share their experience publicly offers an opportunity for wider discussion on the dynamics of naming conventions in families.
