Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green are over the moon that they will be partnering not only in real life but on the season 30 premiere of Dancing With the Stars.
Green joked with Us Weekly how there was “never” a discussion of him having a different partner.
“We used to joke that this wasn’t ever even a possibility and then when they called and asked about the show this season and they said we would be partnered together, it just seemed like it worked,” Green shared.
“Everything was the perfect storm, everything had aligned. It felt like such a cool opportunity, this wouldn’t have happened if we weren’t partnered.” Burgess, 36, added, “It was never a discussion. They offered it to [Brian] on the terms we’d be partners. We always were going to be partnered together.”
The actor and the pro dancer have been seen together since December 2020. Burgess revealed how dating her competition partner was a “learning curve.”
“I’ve never done this before; I’ve never dated anyone that I’ve danced with, whether it was in my competitions or my DWTS career,” she admitted.
“So, everything for me is new — learning that balance, every day in how to approach it. I think that’s the biggest challenge. It doesn’t mean it’s bad, either. We haven’t had a bad moment for us because our communication is so great in our relationship, so anything that arises, we discuss it. But it is new, so it’s just that staying open to seeing what Bri is showing me and what we need as a couple in life, and what we need as a partnership on the dance floor and trying to be present to that.”
During Monday’s premiere, two’s Foxtrot earned a score of 24 out of 40.
The pair began dating began after Brian’s separation from Megan Fox. They were married in 2010 and currently share sons Noah, 8, Bodhi, 7, and Journey, 5. Brian also shares an adult son Kassius with ex Vanessa Marcil.
“We know we have to have balance in our relationship — we have to keep dancing at the studio and home is home,” Burgess said on Monday. “We want to make sure we do keep that separate because our relationship is very important to us too. We don’t want to mix everything and have it become stressful.”
