On Wednesday in an episode of Nick Vial’s podcast The Viall FilesBurgess opened her relationship with Fox, revealing that she had previously contacted the actress to discuss joint parenting, which Burgess says Fox “really appreciated”.
Burgess, 36, and Green, 48, are currently expecting their first baby together, a son, next month. The Beverly Hills, 90210 dad is also a dad to sons Journey River5, Bodhi Ransom7 i Noah Shannon9, with Fox as well as the 20-year-old Cassius from a previous relationship.
After we had been dating for about four or five months, I wondered, ‘Can I have Megan’s number?’ Burgess recalls asking Green. “I’d like to text her.” I’d like to come and say, ‘Hey, I’m always close to your kids, if you ever want to know about me or if you ever want coffee. “Let me know. If there’s any way I can support you to be a part of this situation, let me know.” “

“I think she really appreciated it and said,‘ Thank you, ’” Burgess adds. “And she thanked me for being great with her kids, too.”
Elsewhere in the episode, Burgess explains why he doesn’t compare to Fox.
“You can’t get into a new situation with someone and expect them to leave behind everything they’re going through or what they’ve been through. Brian has had his whole life with another person and babies,” she says.
“I wanted to meet him, to support him, to love him … but there is no comparison, and why would he compare? That obviously failed for a reason,” adds Burgess. “It doesn’t make sense for me to compare myself to that or bring it into this relationship.”

Burgess and Green announced that they are expecting their first baby together in February after the couple was photographed in Hawaii.
The actor also shared exciting news on his Instagram page, where a image Green and his children, minus Cassius, touch her baby.
“And suddenly my world will never be the same again. Forever bigger, forever expanded and deeper. Forever abundant and unconditional 💙,” she wrote. “Boy, July 4 (still) 2022. @brianaustingreen I love our family, I love growing up and I love you. How lucky we are ❤️ “
