Sharna Burgess is celebrating after becoming a US citizen. The 'Dancing With the Stars' pro - who welcomed a son in June with her partner Brian Austin Green - shared a video which showed her holding up her citizenship certificate as she recited the Oath of Allegiance to the United States during the traditional oath ceremony and she shared an emotional message declaring she's found the place she belongs almost two decades after leaving her native Australia.

In a post on Instagram, she wrote: "Today something really amazing happened. I had no idea that this would feel emotional for me.

This has been my home for nearly 12 years now. My son was born here, my life and love and career . . . all here. And yet this last step of becoming a citizen and finally having the same rights as all Americans felt so important. " Sharna left Australia at the age of 18 to pursue her career as a dancer in London and she travelled all over the world before settling down in America.

She's been living in the country for 12 years and is now happily dating Brian and raising their son Zane. The 37-year-old ballroom dancer went on: "Maybe it’s because I’ve lived outside of Australia since I was 18, so much of that was out of a suitcase and from one country to another.
