Ozzy Osbourne is hoping to renew his wedding vows to celebrate 40 years of marriage to wife Sharon after undergoing life-changing surgery.
The Black Sabbath legend, 73, underwent grueling surgery on Monday to adjust pins inserted into his neck and spine following a near fatal mountain biking accident in 2003 and a fall in 2013.
Sharon, 69, flew back to Los Angeles earlier this week from London to support the rocker.

But despite his health issues and Parkinson’s disease, friends say he wants to make a big push to exchange vows again, four decades after he first tied the knot.
A companion of the couple told The mirror how the TV legend hoped to celebrate the joyous occasion in Maui – the The Hawaiian island is where they first exchanged vows in July 1982.
They told the publication: “Ozzy may have been waiting for treatment on his neck and back after prolonged pain in his leg which left him unable to walk for long periods of time.”

“But although that was his hope, he still wants to give Sharon something special for their 40th.
“They renewed their vows in Vegas, but he was hoping to take them to Maui for a break to remember their big day.”
The family friend added: ‘He hopes his recovery will be short and the nerve damage will be removed so he can treat his wife.
“Ozzy may have been through the factory for the past few years, but his spirit and desire to show Sharon how their love burns remains.”
MailOnline has contacted a representative for further comment.

The couple previously renewed their vows in 2017 in Las Vegas after it emerged Ozzy had been unfaithful to Sharon. At the time he said: “For me it was actually our real wedding day.
“He’s the one I’ll remember.
“Sharon and I have been through so much, and honestly, it feels like a fresh start.”

On Thursday, Ozzy confirmed he was ‘recovering comfortably’ at home after undergoing ‘major’ spine surgery this week.

“I definitely feel the love and support from all of my fans and send a big thank you to everyone for their thoughts, prayers and best wishes during my recovery.”
Photos taken on Tuesday showed Ozzy being pushed into a Los Angeles hospital parking lot as his wife Sharon, 69, looks on after being discharged just a day after surgery.
It comes after Sharon said Ozzy was ‘on the road to recovery’ and ‘doing well’ after undergoing major surgery on Monday which could ‘determine the rest of his life’.
In an update to her Instagram Story on Tuesday, she wrote, “Our family would like to express so much gratitude for the overwhelming amount of love and support leading up to Ozzy’s surgery!”
“Ozzy is fine and on the road to recovery!” Your love means the world to him.
A family source recently told Page Six that the metal influencer is going through a “long recovery period” that will likely require an in-home nurse for some time.
They said: “Ozzy is 73 and any kind of surgery when you get older is tough,” they added. ‘It’s quite important. He has the pins in his neck and back realigned since crashing in 2019.’
