Brian Austin Green's "moral outlook" has changed since he split from Megan Fox
The 'Beverly Hills 90210' actor - who has Kassius, 19, with former partner Vanessa Marcil and Noah, eight, Bodhi, seven, and four-year-old Journey with the 'Transformers' actress - admitted the last 18 months have had a huge impact on him and he's determined his kids will grow up knowing how to help others and do what's right and responsible

He told People magazine: "In the past year and a half, going through the divorce and the pandemic and everything I've been through, it really changed my moral outlook on the world.

"For me, with the kids, I can make sure they really have a good sense of other people around them and what's important in the world. It's not only my job to shape them, but they are who they are.
"It's most important for me to raise them with morals and teach them what I've learned as far as what feels good and what's responsible."
The 47-year-old star has been dating Sharna Burgess for the last 10 months and he insisted their relationship is nothing like anything he's had before.
He gushed: "[Meeting Sharna] was something I'd never experienced before in my life.
"On our first date, we just completely lost track of time and the same thing happened the next time. It became something noticeably different from anything I'd ever experienced before.
"I wasn't sure what that meant until the first time we kissed and then it was the attraction and a whole bunch more. It was really cool. And we really have the same moral compass."
The 'Dancing With the Stars' professional is "grateful" for the lockdown measures introduced to slow the spread of coronavirus because it helped them really get to know one another.
Sharna, 35, said: "We met at a coffee shop, then had a few dates and then we were locked in a house together.
"I was grateful for that because it allowed us to really take our time and it was really awesome."
