On Monday, the Dancing with the Stars pro, 36 — who's expecting her first baby with boyfriend Brian Austin Green — opened up about her pregnancy during a Q&A on her Instagram Story. When one follower asked if the pregnancy was a surprise, Burgess admitted that she was actually on birth control when her baby was conceived because she and Green were not expecting to have a child yet. "Ahhhh yes. Yes it was. I was on birth control," she wrote. "We were thinking of trying mid to late this year lol. But the Universe made her own plan, found a window and went for it." "We are big believers in everything happening for a reason," Burgess continued. "There was definitely Divine timing with this one and we are excited about it, trusting in it. We knew it was on the cards for us, so why not now. :)" Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE's free daily newsletter to stay up-to-date on the best of what PEOPLE has to offer, from juicy celebrity news to compelling human interest stories.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 star is already dad to Journey River, 5, Bodhi Ransom, 8, and Noah Shannon, 9, with ex Megan Fox as well as 19-year-old Kassius from a previous relationship. "We have snuggle time with Peanut. They come and say good morning to him and give him cuddles," Burgess said of Green's kids. "Their favorite line is 'wow you're so much bigger' 🤪 and they keep asking how much longer till their baby brother is here." "Honestly writing this response makes me emotional. It's really beautiful how connected to him they are already," she added.
