Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary over the holiday weekend.

The heavy metal power couple first tied the knot on July 4, 1982. In a tweet Monday, Ozzy posted photos from the ceremony alongside the caption, “40 Years Ago Today! Happy Anniversary My Love.”

Meanwhile, Sharon took to Instagram to post a more recent photo of her and Ozzy, writing, “2022 is a special year for me. It marks 40 years of marriage to my darling Ozzy.”

“We first met when I was 18, over 52 years we have been friends, lovers, husband & wife, grandparents and soulmates,” she adds. “Always at each other’s side. I love you Ozzy.”

The milestone anniversary gives the Osbournes a reason to celebrate after a few difficult months for the family, which included Ozzy and Sharon testing positive for COVID-19 and Ozzy undergoing major surgery.

In other happier Osbourne happenings, Ozzy and Sharon’s daughter Kelly is expecting her first child, and Ozzy is releasing a new solo album, Patient Number 9, on September 9.
