Brian Austin Green, father of four boys: ‘I want a girl. I really want a girl’

German premiere of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have been pretty quiet this year. They announced their divorce back in… what? Like, late 2015? And then almost immediately, they reconciled and she got pregnant again. I theorized last year that Brian Austin Green keeps getting Megan pregnant on purpose, as a way to stay with her and yes, control her. She ended up giving birth to another boy last year, Journey River Green. Journey joined big brothers Noah Shannon and Bodhi Ransom, plus BAG’s oldest son Kassius from a previous relationship. There are four growing boys in their family, basically. And now Brian says he wants to try for the girl:

Brian Austin Green has babies on the brain. The actor invited Dax Holt to his home Monday to film Hollywood Pipeline’s Facebook Live, where he mulled adding to his family with Megan Fox. The 44-year-old actor and the 31-year-old actress have three sons—Noah Green, 4, Nodhi Green, 3, and Journey Green, 1—and Brian is also a father to son Kassius Green, 15, from a prior relationship.

When a fan asked if he wants another child with Megan, he said, “I don’t know. I have four boys now; a fifth is a basketball team. So, that would kind of be awesome.”

Speaking candidly, Brian admitted, “I want a girl. I really want a girl.”

“I’m worried that if I try I’ll just get another boy. Not just because I love my boys, but I’ll [probably] have another boy, and I don’t know if I’m ready for five,” he added. “That’s a lot.”

I find that this is very common, even in families which aren’t as lopsided as Brian and Megan’s – families with two boys want to try for the girl, families with two girls want to try for the boy. What’s interesting is that narrative is usually that the mom wants a daughter and the father doesn’t care either way – in this situation, it’s BAG who really wants the daughter. Well, I guess he should just manipulative Megan and “forget” their birth control plan again and try for another kid.

    Why is her instagram “the native tiger”? Is she talking about tigers or is she still pretending to be part native American?

  2. Odesa says:

    Anyone else listening to the “again with this: 90210″ podcast? It’s hilarious

  3. Coop says:

    I agree, there might be some manipulation of feelings or situations going on.
    But she must genuinely love/lust for him to keep it going for this long.
    Hell knows she has other options.

  4. Jegede says:

    I said this already.

    Megan Fox had gone on The View much earlier and said she and Brian wanted a girl long before the birth of their 3rd boy.

    Nowt unusual. Here in Blighty, Wayne and Coleen Rooney are pregnant with a 4th, with Rooney hoping to add a girl to his family of boys.
    Another footballer, Steven Gerrard was open as to his joy in having a baby boy after having 3 girls.

    It’s normal for families to want to mix it up if they are blessed to be able to have children anyway.
    Naomi Watts often said she would have a 3rd, only if it was sure it would be a girl after 2 boys.

      Trust me, only girl with a bunch of boy cousins, it is a very lonely and isolating experience. Plus parents often have very lopsided ideas of what finally having the desired gender means, and some even push their only son or daughter to fit those visions they built up in their mind. Children are real, they’re not accessories or extensions of ourselves, and I think parents often forget that.

  5. Tanya says:

    Ha. My husband and I keep talking about having a fourth, but only if we could get a girl. We are both terrified of what a boy would do to our orderly female-dominated household.

    I can’t talk about having a gaggle of kids since I have a posse of my own but I just can’t figure out what he does with himself. Babies are a lock down device and it has been employed to keep a woman tied to a man. They are soon to be off the radar. Neither has much going on.
    He’s just…not all that appealing

  7. Yup, Me says:

    We have one boy and that already feels like a whole lot of children. My husband really wants a girl. I want weekly massages and monthly facials and all kinds of random pampering.

    I wonder how helpful BAG is around the house and with the kids. He seems like the type to claim that his vertigo is acting up whenever it relates to something he doesn’t want to do.

    “You know I can’t look down and change a diaper, honey. My vertigo is acting up. You wouldn’t want me to fall and drop the baby, right?”

  8. Cupcake says:

    They could try IVF to try to select the sex of their child. No guarantees but it’s an option.

  9. meh says:

    Why is all the blame for the kids on BAG? I’m sure Megan Fox is aware of birth control and could take it if she didn’t want to be “tricked” into having kids.

  10. Margo S. says:

    I had two boys 22 months apart. We ended up going for a third and I was determined to have a girl. I did my research and apparently male sperm are super fast but die after 3 days. Female sperm are slower and live for at least 5 days. Basically, you want a girl? Don’t have sex every day!

    I knew I was ovulating on a Friday, so I only had sex the monday before. Only female sperm we’re left and bam, had a girl. Science!!! I also didn’t tell my husband my plan. I thought if he knew it would somehow mess it up lol.

  11. Aurelia says:

    Like the up poster, there is always sperm washing with invitro which is legal in the U.S. It’s about 98% reliable.

    Huh — so she really has seen what David Silver looks like and thinks that look was cool. Love is interesting.

  14. Andrea says:

    He’s disgusting to me…I worry she was too young when they got together and now doesn’t know how to leave..

  15. serena says:

    He might end up with a male baseball team, it’s not certain he’d get a girl after *add number* try.

      I thought that comment was gross. I mean, it’s not only him alone who would be “trying”.
