Kelly Osbourne, 37, who is currently pregnant with her first child, has been diagnosed with gestational diabetes after she noticed weight gain and swelling in her ankles during the third trimester of her pregnancy. The daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne has said the symptoms were most likely spurred on by an increased craving for sugar.
It follows as the reality TV star partnered with the No Sugar Company to celebrate National No Sugar Day on October 3.
She spoke in a recent interview about how she learned of her sugar cravings as they have been present throughout the “whole pregnancy”.
Putting aside snacks alone, she attributed most of the problem to “sugary drinks” and “juice.”
Despite the fact they were fresh-pressed, it was still “too much sugar” for her body to handle.

She furthered that none of this was for herself, but for her unborn child, and wishes to be an example to other pregnant women.
Kelly recently appeared on Red Table Talk to explain her decision not to breastfeed after giving birth due to the continued use of medication.
“I have chosen to stay on my medication instead of breastfeeding,” admitted the pregnant star on the show earlier this week.
“What kind of mother am I gonna be if I start going backwards, if I start being self-destructive?”
