In a heartfelt announcement, Alexis Bellino, aged 46, has shared the news of her separation from her fiancé, Drew Bohn.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County star revealed the decision to end their engagement in a statement to Page Six. She expressed, “Drew and I have chosen to go our separate ways as a couple.
Amid this separation, Alexis emphasized the enduring love they share for each other, stating, “Our love remains strong, and we both genuinely wish each other nothing but the best.” She further revealed that they have mutually realized that pursuing separate paths is in their best interests.
Request for Support
In her gracious message, Alexis asked for “thoughts and prayers” for both of their families as they navigate through this difficult period of parting ways.
Alexis and Drew’s separation comes after a three-year engagement that began in December 2020. Their love story had been a public one, with their presence at numerous events and red carpet appearances.
Just two months ago, Alexis shared a heartwarming photo of them together, basking in the serenity of a clear blue sky and a tranquil body of water.
Before her journey with Drew, Alexis was married to Jim Bellino from 2005 to 2018. They shared the joys and responsibilities of raising three children, including James (17) and twins Miles and Mackenna (16).
Tragically, Alexis and Drew’s separation follows the recent passing of Alexis’s mother, Penelope, last month. Alexis paid a heartfelt tribute on Instagram, celebrating her mother’s newfound freedom from suffering.
She expressed her promise to seek answers through the UCLA brain donor program, determined to help others and honor her mother’s memory.
An Unwavering Fight
Alexis had first disclosed her mother’s battle with illness in July 2021, a time when she was still in a relationship with Drew.
