Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess have opened up about their pandemic romance.

Speaking on the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday, the 90210 alum, 47, and the Australian dancer, 35, said they were able to ‘connect more’ because of regulations forcing them to wear face masks on their initial dates.  

‘For us, sitting at coffee shops and doing what we could [on dates]…it really helped us connect more,’ said the father-of-four.

The Terminator: Sarah Conner Chronicles actor explained: ‘One of the positives that I think has come out of wearing masks… [is that] people have reconnected again.’ 

‘I can’t tell you how many people I’ve looked at in the eye and really connected with.’

‘And also [we didn’t have to] rush,’ added Burgess. ‘Just take time to actually connect,’ said the Wagga Wagga-born beauty.

In April, Burgess spoke to Entertainment Tonight about how she and Green took time to build their relationship away from the spotlight.

‘We took four or five dates before we even kissed,’ the Dancing With The Stars pro revealed. ‘It was truly about getting to know the human being, because that’s where we are both at in our lives.’

Sharna explained: ‘I’m not really dating for fun. I’m dating for serious.’

‘It feels like yesterday that we were saying, ‘How has it only been four weeks?’ and now it’s like, ‘How has it been six months?!’ It’s gone so, so fast,’ she gushed in April.

She added that embarking on a new romance had actually worked to their advantage.

‘There’s less outside distractions,’ Sharna said. ‘It allowed us time to get to know each other.’
