RHOC: Inside Alexis Bellino's New Relationship

On Dec. 18, 2020, Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino announced her engagement to boyfriend Andy Bohn in a post on Instagram. Her engagement came two years after she finalized her divorce with ex-husband Jim Bellino, as noted by People. The two were married for 14 years and welcomed three children together before calling it quits. 

She joined the franchise in Season 5 and stayed on until her departure in Season 8, and cameras rolled during some of Alexis and Jim's more tense moments while in the final years of their marriage. Fans can remember Jim's issue with Alexis hanging out with the other housewives. "Wives stay home," he told her. "There's only so much time in a day to raise my children. You've got to say no to some things."

It was during her surprise appearance on RHOC Season 12 when she opened up about the deterioration of their 14-year marriage. "It was just a really broken marriage for a lot of years," Alexis told Housewife Emily Simpson. "There just comes a time when you realize, it's time to move on." The couple finalized their divorce in August 2018 and by February 2019, Alexis was ready to go public with her new romance. 

The "good thing" that came out of Alexis Bellino's 2020

Six months after Alexis Bellino finalized her divorce from Jim Bellino, she made things Instagram official with boyfriend Andy Bohn, People reported. During her last appearance on The Real Housewives of Orange County, she gushed over her newfound love with Andy and how happy he made her. "This is the kind of love I thought only existed in fairy tales," she told Emily Simpson. "I really didn't think it was true." 

She was also elated at how well-received he was by her friends. "Every friend who had met him and I together has gone, 'Holy sh*t, you guys have had something that I've never seen,'" she shared before adding. "I'm just really happy."

It turns out, they really did have something, because in December 2020, Andy popped the big question. "One good thing actually came out of 2020," she captioned an Instagram photo of the two holding each other while she flashed her new diamond ring. "Yes, @acbohnz. I'm all YOURS. #engaged." 

Fellow RHOC stars hopped in the comments section to share their congratulatory messages, as captured by People. "Awwww, congratulations beautiful girl!!!
