“Dancing With the Stars” pro-dancer Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green are new parents to a baby boy. They announced their little bundle of joy’s arrival on Burgess’ Instagram page with a photo of the newborn baby holding his daddy’s hand, captioned, “Zane Walker Green 06/28/2022 at 12:12 p.m.” She added, “My heart is now forever outside of my body.” Green posted the same photo to his Instagram page with a similar caption.
Together for Almost Two Years
The couple met in the fall of 2020 after being set up by their mutual business manager. They kept their relationship quiet for a while, but then went public in January 2021 when they vacationed in Hawaii together. In a Valentine’s Day video they posted on Instagram, Burgess, 37, said, “I’ve never known a man like him and witnessing someone that is such a good human and an amazing father and the way he treats everybody with respect and the way that people treat him is in itself proof of the kind of human that he is and the type of human that I want in my life, so I’m incredibly grateful that 2021 started off this way.”
His Feelings Mirrored Hers
Green’s response echoed her feelings, saying, “Sharna is a really amazing considerate, loving, kind person…Sharna’s been amazing in my life, not only for that reason but that’s been a big thing for me and she’s been so invaluable that way. What a great way to start 2021, to find an amazing person and go into it with a positive feeling and outlook, and really a sense of this could be the year that starts something. This could be the start of something amazing.” And clearly, they were onto something amazing, because they ended up falling in love and now welcoming their son Zane.
A Fifth Boy in the Family
While this is Burgess’ first baby, the “Beverly Hills 90210” star, 48, isn’t new to fatherhood. He became a dad for the first time in 2002 when he and Vanessa Marcil welcomed son, Kassius, now 20. Green later went on to marry Megan Fox and have three more boys – Noah, 9, Bodhi, 8, and Journey, 5. After splitting from Fox in 2021, Green met Burgess and the two began to date. She revealed she was expecting their first baby in February.
Telling the Boys About the New Baby
The two were nervous to tell his kids about the new baby. “Those beautiful kids have been through so much change, and I’m always very sensitive with them,” Burgess told US Weekly. “Though they love me deeply, who knows how they’re going to feel about another kid?” The couple told Noah, Bodhi and Journey about the expected baby by showing them the ultrasound photo and the kids were “really excited” about welcoming their future sibling.
Starting Their New Chapter Together
Burgess said Green is “such an amazing dad,” during an interview with Good Morning America back in May. “One of the things I fell in love with him about was watching him be a dad and the way he parents,” she said. “I thought, ‘It would be so incredible to raise a child with him.’” And now that wish has become reality.
