Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green have welcomed their first child, Zane Walker Green.
The 37-year-old professional dancer from Wagga Wagga gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Tuesday.
After spending the last few days getting well acquainted with their new little one, Burgess and Green, who is best known for his leading role on Beverly Hills, 90210, took to Instagram to share the news.
Sharing a photo of Green holding Zane’s tiny hand, she wrote: “Zane Walker Green. 06/28/2022 at 12:12pm. My heart is now forever outside of my body.”
Green, 48, shared the same photo on his Instagram, captioning the post, “Zane Walker Green born 6/28 at 12:12.”
Burgess, who is a well-known dancer on Dancing with the Stars US, has now welcomed her first child, though this is her partner’s fifth child.
The couple are not married, but have opted to give their son Green’s last name.
Green shares son Noah, nine, Bodhi, eight, and five-year-old Journey with ex-wife Megan Fox, while he shares 20-year-old son Kassius Lijah with American actress Vanessa Marcil.
Burgess and Green began dating in 2020 and announced they were expecting on Instagram in February, just a week after Green’s divorce from Fox was finalised.

Though their relationship began with a rocky star, Burgess and Green have assured they are on good terms with Green’s ex, Fox, who is now famously dating rapper Machine Gun Kelly (aka Colson Baker).
The pair recently appeared on The Viall Files podcast where they opened up about their co-parenting relationship with Fox.
Asked how to handle the situation of children spending time with their parents’ new partners, Burgess said she asked Austin Green for Fox’s phone number after an awkward encounter with her.
“After we had been dating for about five months, I asked… can I get Megan’s number, I would like to text her,” she explained.
“We had this passing moment. We were both at the same restaurant and we oddly made eye contact for a brief moment and I was like, ‘This is not the place for us to meet for the first time.’
“And after that I was like… I would like to reach out to her and say, ‘I am around your kids all the time. If you ever want to know anything about me or you even want to get coffee, let me know. They’re amazing kids. I love them and if there is any way I can support in being a part of this situation let me know.’
“And I think she really appreciated that. She said ‘thank you’ and she thanked me for being great with her kids, too.”
Fox has reportedly been supportive throughout Burgess’ pregnancy journey, though she is yet to publicly comment on the arrival of baby Zane.
