“I’m dropping you off and I’m going to see my friends,” Miles responded, causing his mom to laugh.

It was at that moment when Miles’ accomplishment became clear: He earned his California driver’s license. As Alexis indicated, Miles was the last of her kids to achieve the milestone, following her oldest son, James Bellino, and Miles’ twin sister, Mackenna.

“Momma can take ‘taxi cab’ off the list,” the OC mom continued. “I’m still gonna be the cook and the maid… but I’m going to dinner tonight with my people, OK? Mom’s free, Miles is free, all the kids are free. In Jesus’ name, three drivers! Bye!”
