Ozzy Osbourne'S wife SHARON is thrilled their son JACK is becoming a firefighter.

The 19-year-old reality TV star revealed he is giving up showbiz to become a New York fireman earlier this month (FEB05).

And the news has pleased his mother Sharon, who feared he would be tempted to follow former Black Sabbath wildman OZZY's hedonistic rock 'n' roll lifestyle.

She says, "Jack always wanted to be a fireman. Fantastic!

"I have so much respect for my son as a human being, for the young man he has become.

"I mean, do you have to succeed at something because your parents did? I just want my kids to be happy, that's all I want."
