The 54-year-old star of The Real Housewives of Miami, Alexia, married her present husband Todd Nepola on 16 December 2021. She began her relationship with him in 2017. The pair then engaged in 2019 after seeing each other for around two years.
Alexia and Todd had first marked their wedding day in early 2021. However, her mother passed away just before the scheduled date, leading them to reschedule their scheduled day. Thus, she exchanged vows with Todd after four months after her mother's death at the Eden Rock Hotel in St. Barths.
After her marriage, Alexia spoke with US Weekly and shared her happiness and excitement of being Todd's wife. She said,
I'm a wife!!! (A real one.) It still feels like a dream I can't even put into words. [It was] perfect for us! Truly everything we wanted. Just him and I. … We look forward to celebrating with our friends and family in 2022.
Alexia is the mother of her two sons, Peter and Frankie, with her ex-husband Peggy. As of now, Peter is 29, and Frankie is 25 years old.
About a decade ago, i.e., in August 2011, Frankie suffered a life-threatening car accident, subjecting him to a coma for three months.
The then 13-year-old Frankie was in the car's passenger seat at the time of the accident. The driver, who was Frankie's friend, lost control because of rain which led the vehicle to crash with another car approaching from the opposite direction.
Fortunately, Frankie has now completely recovered from the traumas and injuries of the accident. He completed his high school education in 2016 and currently co-owns a beauty center with his mother by the name of Alexia and Frankie's Beauty Bar.
