brian austin green Y Sharna Burgess they are over the moon for their young son, Zane, but still face their share of parenting challenges.
“[The newborn stage] It’s… I’m older!” the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, 49, joked while speaking exclusively with us weekly on Wednesday, September 7, while promoting its partnership with Depend® for its Stand Strong For Men’s Health™ Program.
The California native praised his newborn, whom he and Burgess, 37, welcomed in June.
“He is amazing. Sharna is amazing,” he connors The actor raved about his two-and-a-half-month-old son. “I’m back at the month and week stage, and my brain is constantly in a buffer, trying to figure out how old she is. I analyzed it a bit, but it’s amazing. He’s an amazing baby.”
previous dancing with the stars The contestant, who went Instagram official in January 2021 with Burgess after the pair were photographed getting close in Hawaii in December 2020, expressed what a great mother the dancer has been to her little one.
He also praised her traits as a doting stepmother to her other children. (Green is also the father of son Kassius, 20, with ex vanessa marciland sons Noah, 9, Bodhi, 8, and Journey, 6, with ex-wife Megan fox).
“We couldn’t be happier, and everyone is extremely healthy right now, which is a blessing,” she added, noting how Zane’s arrival changed her relationship with her partner.
“I always say that the easiest thing is to be a mother or a father. Almost anyone can have a baby, but being a parent, that’s the job,” he said. Anger control alum said U.S. “Getting up in the morning, making breakfast, making lunch for school, bedtime rituals and bath time…that’s when the real work comes in.”
He continued: “[Sharna’s] awesome with that. She has been so practical with him. At this point in my life, having a partner who is as down-to-earth and in love with the process as she is, even when she’s exhausted…it’s so nice to have a partner who shares in that duty.”
While he loves being a father, Green admitted to having some concerns as the couple prepared to care for a newborn.
“It’s been a while”, the Desperate housewives shared alum. “When he was born, there was this thought like, ‘Man, it’s been like six years, do I still have this in me?’ And then right away, changing diapers and swaddling and burping and all the stuff is sort of second nature at this point. I’ve done it so many times.”
Green described Zane as “very vocal” and “not very fussy”, adding that the little boy “talks non-stop”.
“He’s getting to that age now where he’s a lot more reactionary in the things that we do and the things that we say, and he looks around the room and sees everyone that’s there and he smiles a lot and he laughs… which is the most cutest in the world,” the reality TV star shared. “And now Shana is obsessed with the fact that she can choose the clothes that he wears… he has button-downs and stuff, and it’s like, ‘Oh, let’s go to dinner. So here’s his dinner outfit.’”
As the father of five children, Green noted the importance of prioritizing his health in order to be the best father he can be to his family.
“My kids deserve to have me here for a while, so that’s what I’m trying to do,” she shared while speaking about her partnership with Depend®. Green lives with ulcerative colitis, which some studies have linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer.
“The Stand Strong For Men’s Health™ campaign… That’s benefiting the prostate cancer foundation,” said last night the actor explained. “The concept is that we’re really trying to reach men and remove the stigma of getting prostate cancer tests and screenings annually. It’s a much bigger problem than people think. Prostate cancer is not necessarily an aggressive form of cancer, but if left untreated it can become a problem for people.”
the BH90210 The producer encouraged people to “find out ASAP,” and also recommended a PSA (prostate-specific antigen) test, which is “a simple blood draw” at a doctor’s office.
“We’re just trying to get the word out so people really think differently about it and don’t be afraid to do it,” Green shared.
