Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess have been dating almost one year

Green and Burgess met during her Dancing With the Stars‘ hiatus at a coffee shop. Their mutual attraction led to several dates, and the couple quarantined together during the early days of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Green told People Magazine, “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.”

“I wasn’t sure what that meant until the first time we kissed, and then it was the attraction and a whole bunch more. It was cool. And we really have the same moral compass,”  Green shared.

In a video clip, the Dancing With the Stars pro shared that she and Green had three days of rehearsal. This equates to about three hours per day.

“A lot of us have rhumba this week, so I believe that we are not the only ones that are stressed,” she revealed with a nod to her fellow pros and celebrities who are competing this week.

“Rhumba in week two for a male celeb is a big call. The technique is hard, it’s super slow. It’s a very intense dance for so soon in the competition,” Burgess clarified.
