• Brian Austin Green shared how he and Megan Fox tackled parenting their kids together months before she filed for divorce
  • The actor said they have an efficient system when it comes to managing their children
  • He said coming home to Fox and their three sons gave him a "sense of self-worth"

Brian Austin Green shared that he and Megan Fox have a strong parenting partnership months before she filed for divorce.

Green confirmed in May that he and Fox had separated last year after 10 years of marriage, and she officially filed for divorce in November. However, the "Beverly Hills, 90210" alum opened up about their relationship and family when he appeared on Thursday's episode of the "Ever After with Jaleel White" podcast, which was recorded earlier this year before the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I don’t get my sense of self-worth from work," he shared. "I don’t get it from being on set. I don’t get it from those people. I get it when I got home and I see my wife and I see my kids."

Green added that he measures his success by his personal life and not by his achievements in his career. He also revealed how he and Fox worked together to manage their three children at the time: sons Noah Shannon, 8, Bodhi Ransom, 6, and Journey River, 4.

"When I’m lying in a hospital bed and they’re around me, that’s what’s gonna mean something to me. Not the jobs I’ve done or who I worked with. That’s not going to matter. That lives forever on film, but that’s just one aspect [of my life]. That’s not me. That’s what I did. That was my job," the "Cross Wars" star added.

"My wife and I, we got really good at man-to-man," Green said of Fox. "Then you have three and all of a sudden you have to play zone. ‘OK, I’ll cover [this] half of the room, you cover that half. Then if a kid steps in our zone, then we’ve got it covered.’"

The actor is also dad to son Kassius, 18, whom he shares with ex Vanessa Marcil.

Green's relationship with his estranged wife has turned sour since he recorded the podcast. Fox filed her petition for divorce from the actor on Nov. 25, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, E! News reported.

Fox requested joint legal and physical custody of their children, along with termination of spousal support for her and Green. The actor also filed his response to Fox's divorce petition.

Green confirmed his split from Fox earlier this year after she was spotted driving around with boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly in Calabasas, California. At the time, he said they plan to continue their family vacations and spend holidays together because they wanted to focus on their children.

"It sucks when life changes and something that you’re used to, that you’ve been doing for 15 years, you try and not get rid of but you change," he said on his "…With Brian Austin Green" podcast.

Green continued, "There’s the unknown aspect … there’s that pit in my stomach … I really don’t want Megan and I to be at odds … she’s been my best friend for 15 years and I don’t want to lose that."
