Akin to his soon-to-be-ex-wife Megan Fox, who didn’t take long to go public with her relationship with Machine Gun Kelly once the rumors circulated, Brian Austin Green doesn’t seem to be hiding his new beau either. Life is short, and all that…

The 47-year-old actor has made no secret of the fact that he is dating 35-year-old Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Sharna Burgess. They engaged in a lot of PDA on a recent trip to Hawaii, if you can remember, and one of the pictures of them kissing even made it onto her Instagram account, so there is definitely no secrecy there…

“She’s pretty amazing.  She’s cool,” Brian Austin Green said on KTLA, before confirming that the two of them were introduced by their business manager.

“It was nothing that I was completely open to, I didn’t think at the time, but worked out pretty well.

“It’s working out pretty well so far.”

The actor – who you can also catch as a judge on The Masked Dancer every Wednesday – has even opened up about how dating during a global pandemic actually has a lot of upsides.

According to Brian Austin Green himself, dating during a pandemic may be “different”, but it seems to have a lot more pros than cons, as it has allowed them both to connect on a deeper level…

“Doing any of that during the lockdown, the pandemic, is different,” he continued.

“But I think it helps people talk a little bit more and connect a little bit more because you don’t have the physical ways of doing it.

“You don’t have places to go and other distractions. It helps focus the situation a little more, which I think was really helpful.

“And Sharna was completely open to it, and so was I, so it’s been a good situation so far.”

We can definitely see how avoiding public places and fancy restaurants and keeping things a lot more low key can work in a new relationship’s favor!
