Despite their high-profile careers, Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green's first date was as normal as they come.

After being set up by their mutual business manager, the two first connected over coffee. Sparks flew, but as the Beverly Hills 90210 actor later revealed, the two were on different pages. Green was not looking for a relationship in the wake of his split with his wife of nearly 10 years, Megan Fox, while Burgess, on the other hand, was looking for something stable.

However, as Green later told PEOPLE, their chemistry was undeniable. "We met at a coffee shop, then had a few dates and then we were locked in a house together," he explained.

Quarantining together during the pandemic helped them establish strong ties. "You don't have places to go and other distractions. It helps focus the situation a little more, which I think was really helpful," Green said during an interview with KTLA in January 2021.

After making their romance Instagram official, the couple competed together in season 30 of Dancing with the Stars. Soon after their elimination in week 4, they discovered they were pregnant with their first baby. On June 28, 2022, Burgess gave birth to a son named Zane Walker Green.

From their quarantine beginnings to their growing blended family, here's a complete look at Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green's relationship timeline.

The actor also told PEOPLE that their instant connection was undeniable. "On our first date, we just completely lost track of time and the same thing happened the next time. It became something noticeably different from anything I'd ever experienced before," he said.
