Just three months after Burke confirmed their relationship, the couple made their red carpet appearance while attending Operation Smile's Hollywood Fight Night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in November 2019. Before they hit the red carpet, she gushed about her then-boyfriend while attending the Women's Guild Cedars-Sinai Annual Luncheon at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. At the time, Brooke told reporters that her kids "really liked" Scott. She is the mother to son Shaya, 13, and daughter, Heaven Rain, 14, with ex David Charvet. Brooke also shares daughters Sierra, 19, and Neriah, 21, with ex Garth Fisher.
She told reporters: "It is awesome because he is a great father. He has two children and that is one of the things that I love most about him. He is really kind and responsible and devoted, so our kids are getting to know each other." Brooke continued: "It's a big deal, but it is really loving and kind, and I am really happy. He is a sweetheart, a really sweet guy. Yesterday I used the 'B' word. I was like, 'Whoa! Boyfriend?! Babe, do you want to be my boyfriend?!' I had to change his name in my contacts to 'Boyfriend.'"
