“I had just gotten out of a relationship, my son was just born,” Brian, 46, explained on Barstool’s KFC Radio on August 15. “I wasn’t looking for a relationship at the time.” The actor has a 17-year-old son, Kassius, with actress Vanessa Marcil.
Brian revealed he and Megan, 33, met while working on an episode of Hope and Faith in 2004 and he felt an immediate connection but ignored it. “She was really young and I was like, ‘This can’t f**king happen. This isn’t going to happen, no way,” he said.
The Beverly Hills 90210 star added, “She was just really persistent and thank God.”
“It’s funny, I kept pushing her away early on because I was like, ‘I don’t want a relationship,’” he continued.
Brian admitted he only changed his mind after Megan gave up and said she would start dating other men if he wasn’t interested. “That’s when I realized, like, ‘f**k I must be really into this situation because the thought of that kills me,’” he thought at the time.
The couple has been married since 2010 and share three children 6-year-old Noah, 5-year-old Bodhi, and 2-year-old Journey. Their relationship, however, hasn’t always been smooth sailing. In 2015, Megan filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.” They got back together shortly after and the following year she was pregnant with their third child.
