He shares three sons with his soon-to-be ex-wife Megan Fox.
And Brian Austin Green managed to snap a rare family photo on Sunday featuring his youngest children, along with his oldest son Kassius Marcil-Green, 19, from his relationship with actress Vanessa Marcil.
The 47-year-old Beverly Hills, 90210 star got a special assist from his professional dancer girlfriend Sharna Burgess, 36, who took the sweet family picture.
Proud papa: Brian Austin Green, 47, celebrated Father’s Day on Sunday with a rare family photo featuring his three youngest sons with Megan Fox and his oldest son Kassius (L) from his relationship with Vanessa Marcil
Brian sported a slightly touched up but still thick salt-and-pepper beard as he beamed from inside a hot tub with his children.
Kassius smiled softly and had his arm over his father’s shoulders, while his son Bodhi, seven, sat on his lap and his other sons Journey, four, and Noah, eight, relaxed on his other side.
‘Happy Father’s Day everyone!!!’ Brian gushed in his caption.
He also added a loving message to Sharna.
‘Thank you baby for taking such an amazing pic for me :)).’

Back in the fold: Brian is rarely seen with his oldest son Kassius, and his ex Vanessa claimed on Instagram that he and his ex Megan Fox had cut off contact with him for five years
Although it’s not unusual for Brian to spend time with his three youngest children, it appears to be much rarer for him to spend time with Kassius.
His ex Vanessa previously claimed on Instagram in 2018 that Kassius had barely seen his father or then-stepmother Megan Fox in years and that his bedroom at their home had been emptied out.
Back in September of last year, she wrote in Instagram comments that her son had been ostracized from Brian’s family with Megan Fox for years.
‘I celebrate Kassius’ love for his father and remain extremely grateful that Kass was finally invited back into his father’s life and was able to meet his youngest brother for the first time & finally start seeing his other two siblings again,’ she wrote. ‘5 years apart with no explanation is devastating for children. For siblings. My son is also an incredible & protective big brother.’
She also wrote elsewhere that Kassius used to have a bedroom at the home Brian and Megan shared, but she claimed that it was repurposed once he stopped being invited.
Sweet: Sharna praised the parents on Australia’s The Morning Show earlier this year, saying they were ‘doing a great job with managing their situation, so I’m grateful that I’ve been able to fit into it — into their world’
Although Brian’s ex may not care for his parenting in recent years, his new girlfriend has nothing but praise for him.
During an appearance on Australia’s The Morning Show earlier this year, the Dancing With The Stars pro said Brian and Megan were ‘doing a great job with managing their situation, so I’m grateful that I’ve been able to fit into it — into their world.’
She added that Brian was ‘a wonderful dad, and he and his wife — uh, ex-wife — have raised three beautiful children, and they are so wonderful and sweet and kind and considerate, and they’ve done such an amazing job.’
New love: Since his split from Megan in May 2020, she has moved on with rapper and rocker Machine Gun Kelly, whom she met while filming Midnight In The Switchgrass in March 2020; seen in May in LA
Brian has had a tumultuous relationship with Megan, which began in 2004 after they met on the set of Hope & Faith when he was 30 and she was only 18.
After breaking off an engagement, they got back together and were married in 2010.
The Transformers actress later filed for divorce in 2015, though they reconciled the following year.
Things ended for good in May of last year, when Brian announced their separation.
Now his ex is coupled up with rapper and rocker Machine Gun Kelly, whom she met on the set of the crime film Midnight In The Switchgrass, which began filming in Puerto Rico in March 2020, shortly before the pandemic forced a pause of production.
After dating around following the split with multiple women, including the recently engaged Courtney Stodden, Brian went official with Sharna in January, a month after they took a Hawaiian vacation.
