·3 min read

Sharna Burgess can't say enough kind words about Brian Austin Green.

The Dancing with the Stars pro, 35, stepped out with her Beverly Hills, 90210 actor beau on Tuesday, attending their official "first event" together in L.A.: Cassie Scerbo's '80s-powered birthday party, benefiting Boo2Bullying.

"He is so passionate about doing good in the world and leaving his mark ... and that is really one of the ways we connected so much, is [asking] 'What do we want to do in the world?' " Burgess told Entertainment Tonight of Green, 47.

"What a beautiful way to have our first event together: to support a cause that is making headway in ending bullying," she added.

The dancer also shouted out Green's role as a father of four, who shares three sons — Journey River, 4½, Bodhi Ransom, 7, and Noah Shannon, 8½ — with ex-wife Megan Fox, and 19-year-old son Kassius with ex Vanessa Marcil.

"Because he also has three beautiful young boys that are in school, and a 19-year-old, and anyone who has kids would understand, you would fight for your kids to not have to go through bullying," Burgess told ET.

Green, who became Instagram official with Burgess in January, is still in the process of finalizing his divorce from Fox, 34. The Jennifer's Body actress is currently dating Machine Gun Kelly.

Following Green's split from Fox, a source told PEOPLE in December that he had been seeing Burgess "for a few weeks" when they were seen at Los Angeles International Airport departing for a trip together.

During a 12-minute Instagram Live session this past Valentine's Day, the pair discussed how grateful they are to have found each other.

"It's funny — I kinda feel like when you put yourself in a space where you, on some level, decide that you're going to surround yourself with people that help you move forward on a path instead of pulling you back, that they do that," Green said.

"Sharna's been amazing in my life — not only for that reason, but that's been a big thing for me. She's been so invaluable, she really has," continued the actor. "And what a great way to start 2021 — to find an amazing person and go into it with a positive feeling and outlook and really a sense of, 'This could be the year that starts something. This could be the start of something amazing.' "

Burgess then shared her thoughts about Green, admitting that he took her "completely by surprise" and that she has "never known a man like him."
