When it comes to parenting, Brian Austin Green has a full plate. 

The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum is dad to four youngsters, beginning with 17-year-old son, Kassius, who he welcomed with ex Vanessa Marcil in 2002. In 2012, he and wife Megan Fox became parents to now-7-year-old son Noah, followed by 5-year-old son Bodhi and 3-year-old son Journey

And, as he he put it to People back in 2016 at the time of Fox's third pregnancy, "You know, nothing is planned...None of them are ever planned. You kind of just go with it."

"At my age, to be having three babies, is crazy," Green added. "I'll be 43 this year."

Now, at 46 years old, he's juggling a teenager and three single-digit kiddos. While the celebrity pair have been known to keep their kids mostly out of the spotlight, they do post snaps of their family from time to time on social media.

Megan on Communicating With Babies During Pregnancy

"You don't hear an audible voice, but I feel like you receive messages from the child if you're open to it," she explained on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Their needs are so different."
