Alexis Bellino and her fiance Andy Bohn decided to split up. The Real Housewives of Orange County star, 46, and Bohn have called it quits 3 years after he proposed in December 2020.
“Drew and I have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” Bellino told PEOPLE in a statement. She added, “Despite this, our love for each other remains strong, and we both sincerely wish nothing but the best for one another. We recognize that it’s in our best interest to pursue separate paths.”
She also said, “We kindly ask for your thoughts and prayers for both of our families as we navigate through this breakup, especially considering the recent lost of my mother.”
The breakup, first reported by Page Six, comes 1 month after Bellino’s mother Penelope passed away.
“🦋🦋Momma, you are finally free. You can walk again, cook, dance, hold a glass, talk, hug, laugh…you are out of that horrible body that kept you prisoner for the past three years,” she penned in a heartfelt Instagram tribute.
“You put up the strongest fight I’ve ever seen,” she added. “My promise to you is that I will make sure the UCLA brain donor program finds out what robbed you of your beautiful life at such a young age, and we will help others so that your torture was not in vain.”
Bellino and Bohn announced their engagement in December 2020 with an Instagram picture of the couple kissing as she flaunts her engagement ring.
In 2018, Bellino finalized her divorce from ex-husband Jim Bellino. The pair, who were married for 13 years, have 3 children: James, 17 and twins Miles and Mackenna, both 15.
