AceShowbiz - Brian Austin Green is offering an update on his health. The "Beverly Hills, 90210" alum shares with his Instagram followers that he has been "bedridden" as he's suffering from ulcerative colitis.
In an Instagram video shared on Wednesday, April 13, Brian explained why he had been absent from social media. "Hey everybody, so I disappeared from Instagram for a while. I had ulcerative colitis for about six, six-and-a-half weeks, which wasn't very fun," he said. "Horrible timing."
Later in the clip, the 48-year-old star thanked his girlfriend Sharna Burgess, who is currently pregnant with the couple's first child. "Sharna was amazing - six, seven months pregnant - taking care of my three young kids because I was pretty bedridden for a while," he gushed over the "Dancing with the Stars" pro dancer. "Taking care of me, not complaining, being amazing. I am super thankful to have someone like her in my life."
Brian went on to add that he's on the mend. "I'm back now," so "The Conners" actor added. "I'm feeling good. Thank goodness. It was a terrible experience. I'm glad it's over."
In the caption, he wrote, "Again, I'm a lucky man. @sharnaburgess I love you." Shanna reacted to her beau's post with a comment that read, "Baby this was beautiful and unexpected. I love you, and I've got you. You and the kids, always. Xx."
Prior to dating Shanna, Brian was married to Megan Fox. The pair share sons Noah, Bodhi and Journey together.
