“Dancing With the Stars” professional dancer Sharna Burgess and boyfriend Brian Austin Green are expecting their first child together.
E! News reported on February 4, 2022, that the dancer is pregnant with Green’s baby. Green has three children, Journey River, 5, Bodhi Ransom, 7, and Noah Shannon, 9, with his ex-wife Meghan Fox, and a son, Kassius, 19, with Vanessa Marcil.
Burgess is pregnant for the first time, and she has never been married. The couple appeared together on season 30 of “Dancing With the Stars” after announcing their relationship.
They were previously supposed to dance together for season 29 of the show, but Green had to drop out before the show aired, which Burgess revealed in an Instagram video the couple posted last Valentine’s Day. During season 30, they were the third couple eliminated.
“Thank you so much, everybody, that, like, supported us and voted for us and was there for us. It was really a great experience for us, not just with the people we met, but with the fans that supported us and just getting to dance with each other,” Green told US Weekly after their elimination from the show.
The Couple Had a Maternity Shoot
According to photos obtained by E! News, the couple had a photo shoot in Hawaii, where they are vacationing.
In one photo, Green cradles Burgess’s stomach as they look into one another’s eyes with smiles on their faces. E! News reported that the couple confirmed to the outlet that they are expecting their first child after sharing photos.
Heavy has reached out to Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess for comment.
It’s likely Burgess will miss season 31 of “Dancing With the Stars,” as the show will begin filming in September 2022.
A Source Says the Couple Is Headed for Marriage
In December 2021, a source told Hollywood Life that the couple have spoken about marriage and “will absolutely get there.”
“Brian and Sharna have talked engagement, have talked marriage but this holiday season and Christmas is not when it is going to happen,” said the source, according to the outlet. “His kids really like Sharna, and they will absolutely get there, but right now they both don’t want to make it look like they are rushing anything so soon after being officially divorced.”
Burgess also recently announced her father’s death.
“I’ll never be able to find the right words to do this justice so I’ll use the words of someone else,” Burgess wrote on Instagram. “‘There are far better things ahead than those we leave behind’ C.S. Lewis. I hope with all my heart this is true for you. Journey well Dad, may you go with Spirit, courage and love onto your next. Thank you, I love you, I miss you.”
Some of the “Dancing With the Stars” professional dancers are currently on tour, but Burgess did not join them. When asked why, she told fans that 11 weeks was simply too much time for her to commit to a tour at the time.
“[I offered] to switch tracks with someone, like a ‘two weeks on and two weeks off’ type of thing,” said Sharna, though she acknowledged that would make more work for others, she said in an Instagram story quoted by Pop Culture.
“Dancing With the Stars” has not yet been renewed for season 31. If it does get renewed, the show will return sometime in mid-September of 2022.
