"Fortunate" Brian Austin Green Details Co-Parenting With Megan Fox

The Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test season two star—who shares and 14-month-old Zane with Sharna and is dad to his and ex Vanessa Marcil‘s 21-year-old Kassius—also reflected on the overall responsibility of raising kids.

“To me, you are raising future adults. So it’s a very there’s a lot that comes with that and that to me is what makes the concept of parenting so difficult,” Brian said. “Because it is. It’s the waking up in the morning, making breakfast, it’s having the hard conversations about things, it’s going to the school, it’s doing homework afterwards. It’s really morally helping these kids learn these skills that they can then move into adulthood with because you’re not going to be with them forever.”

Brian has spoken favorably about his co-parenting relationship with Megan before. “We co-parent really well together,” he told E! News last October. “And we don’t fight over time with the kids. We try and alternate holidays between Christmas Day, Christmas Eve.”

He added, “But we’re open to things changing. I’m very aware of—and so is she—that our schedules are insane. So when we do get time, cherish it. It’s an amazing thing and we support the other parent having time.”
