Sharna Burgess' Admission About Her Pregnancy Has Everyone Scratching Their Heads

Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green have been one of Hollywood's most swoon-worthy couples since they went public with their relationship in early 2021 (via Us Weekly). The professional dancer and the former "Beverly Hills 90210" star even got to show off some personal moments while competing together on "Dancing With The Stars," per E! Online.


In early 2022, the couple made a surprising, yet happy, announcement revealing that they were expecting their first child together (via People). The pair shared the news with their fans via social media as Burgess showed off her growing baby bump. The baby will be the first child for Burgess, and the fifth child for Green. The actor shares an adult son named Kassius with ex-girlfriend Vanessa Marcil, and three sons, Journey River, Bodhi Ransom, and Noah Shannon with his former wife, Megan Fox.

Now, the "DWTS" pro is opening up a bit more about pregnancy and even sharing a very surprising detail about the baby's conception.

Sharna Burgess reveals why she was so surprised by her pregnancy

According to Page Six, Sharna Burgess recently revealed that her pregnancy with boyfriend Brian Austin Green wasn't planned. The "Dancing With The Stars" fan favorite admitted to fans via a social media Q&A that she was definitely surprised to find out that she was expecting a child since she was taking birth control at the time of conception. "Ahhhh yes. Yes it was," she said of her surprise pregnancy. "I was on birth control." However, that doesn't mean that Burgess isn't over the moon about her new little bundle of joy.


"We are big believers in everything happening for a reason," the dancer wrote. "There was definitely Divine timing with this one and we are excited about it, trusting in it. We knew it was on the cards for us, so why not now." 

Meanwhile, getting pregnant while taking birth control isn't as uncommon as many may believe. Planned Parenthood reveals that the pill is only 91% effective, meaning that about nine of every 100 users get pregnant while taking the pill each year.

Burgess and Green are now eagerly awaiting the arrival of their little one, who is due on July 4.
