Austin Green, aka BAG, agrees that the more, the merrier! The onscreen star, who recently welcomed his first child with Sharna Burgess, is already an experienced father of a four-boy squad. See how Brian bonds with his kids while raising them to be gender-neutral.


Congratulations are in order for Brian Austin Green and his girlfriend, Sharna Burgess, who recently became parents. While this is Burgess' first time, she is confident of being in good hands, as her partner has experienced fatherhood since the early 2000s.

Brian has four kids from two women. His parenting journey began on March 15, 2002, when his then-fiancée, Vanesa Marcil, gave birth to Kassius Lijah Marcil-Green. The lovers met in 1999 while featuring in "Beverly Hills, 90210."

Although their relationship metamorphosed into an engagement, it did not make it to marriage. They broke up the following year after their son's birth.

A brutal custody battle followed, and Brian lost to his ex-lover. Years later, Marcil accused the actor of being an absentee dad who abandoned their son because he lost full custody.

Thankfully, Kassius was re-invited into Brian's life, and despite the actor having other kids at the time, both father and son established a close bond.


Many years before the father-son reconciliation and after his split from Marcil, the Hollywood bad boy started dating another screen diva, Megan Fox. The pair were in an off-and-on relationship. They became engaged in 2006 but separated in 2009.

However, their love story did not end there, as they reunited shortly and married in 2010 after getting engaged again. Five years later, the couple split briefly and came back together before a final breakup in 2020.

Throughout their time as a couple, they welcomed three kids. Their first child, Noah Shannon, was born on September 27, 2012. His brother, Bodhi Ransom, followed on February 12, 2014.


Baby number three, Journey River, was born on August 4, 2016, after his parents reunited following a brief separation. While the couple is no longer an item, they prioritize protecting and being present for their offspring.

They make rules that help their youngsters live a confident life. Brian and Fox raise their kids to be gender-neutral. Although they have been bashed by the public (after spotting their kids in skirts and dresses), the actor maintains support for his boys, defending their choices.


It does not matter if it is their clothes or looks; whenever it concerns his sons, Brian takes the front row to criticize trolls for their opinions. In 2020, after sharing a car selfie showing him and his kids, critics complained about the length of their hair, but the actor, not having any of it, fired back at them while praising his sons' looks.

Indeed, not all super dads wear capes, and beyond all doubts, Brian, who recently welcomed another son, has shown that he is a passionate parent willing to sacrifice for his kids, no matter how many they are. Apart from coming to their defense, he also shares a close-knit relationship with his clique.



At a coffee shop, Brian met Burgess, a professional dancer and a "Dancing With the Stars" star. They became attracted to each other while discussing that they had lost track of time.

Soon, their relationship progressed; as they scheduled a few more dates. However, it became formidable when they spent time in quarantine.

Although Brian has been in and out of a few relationships, he maintained that his current romance is unique. While recalling the early days of their romance, he admitted that meeting the dancer "was something I'd never experienced before in my life."

They share similar beliefs and moral views besides their love for coffee. The couple is passionate about changing lives. In 2021, they supported the search for the #Search4Smiles campaign, which ultimately provided funded cleft palate surgeries and essential services to kids worldwide.


Brian and Burgess also share the same love for dancing. While celebrating their first anniversary, his beau shared a tear-jerking clip tugging at the heartstrings of fans. The video showed their time as dancers on the "DWTS" stage.

Fans also caught a glimpse of the seemingly perfect couple's routine, from photoshoots to driving in a car, to swimming, to date nights — one thing was clear, they both looked genuinely happy in all the posts.


A few months after celebrating the milestone, the duo shocked fans with their pregnancy announcement. They teamed up for a perfect baby-bump reveal snap taken during their trip to Hawaii.

The maternity photo showcased Brian sporting a casual shirt on flowery-designed shorts and a straw, cradling his lover's bulging stomach. On the other hand, the expectant mother looked stunningly gorgeous as she posed in a white two-piece swimsuit.



More than once, Brian has shown how much he enjoys being a father and prioritizes his kids. Thankfully, it is not a turnoff for Burgess, who admires him for being a great dad.

The dancer confessed to being captivated by Brian and Fox's co-parenting strategy. Burgess commended the lovers for staying mature and handling their responsibilities without getting in each other's way.


She gushed about fitting into the blended family, adding that the parents have done brilliantly raising good kids. Burgess maintained:

"And they are so wonderful and sweet and kind and considerate, and they've done such an amazing job."

Indeed, Brian's boys accepted their father's partner, and they equally loved the idea of having another sibling. In February, the "DWTS" star mesmerized her online audience by sharing a sweet photo of her bare baby bump.


What made it extra special was that three of Brian's sons rested one of their palms on her stomach. In the accompanying caption, the expectant mom gushed about her family, mentioning that she felt so lucky. She also reached out to Kassius, adding that they all love him.

The "Beverly Hills, 90210" star recently emphasized that his kids were joyous and could not wait to have a new addition. Brian revealed they showed great care to his lover and joined in the countdown.



On June 28, the couple welcomed their son, Zane Walker Green. The doting dad rushed to inform his Instagram family, sharing a heavenly monochrome snap of the newborn holding on to his index finger.

The first-time mom also uploaded the same image, adding more words that portrayed her immense love for the newborn.

Undoubtedly, mother and baby are doing fine and blessed with a loving family, including an ever-present dad and siblings who are ready to protect them!
