After experiencing a string of major life changesAlexis Bellino returned to Instagram to share some exciting updates on her family. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum dropped the first bit of news on December 5, when she posted a joyous video of her and her 16-year-old son, Miles.

Alexis filmed the clip at the San Clemente DMV, just moments after her child passed his driver's permit test.

“ALL Bellino kids are now driving!!!” she captioned the Instagram, which included the “permit” and “test” hashtags.

The video showed a proud Alexis sitting at the DMV while Miles stood behind and showed off his permit.

“Oh my god! We’re here! This one passed! First time!” Alexis shouted before Miles light-heartedly shushed her. “I don’t care! Good job, baby! I have another driver! Yay!”

But that wasn’t Alexis’ only trip to the DMV that week. Several days later, the former OC ’Wife took to Instagram to celebrate Miles’ twin sister, Mackenna, who had just secured her driver’s license.

“It’s official! (Glad to be done with DMV for a bit),” she captioned the December 8 Instagram, which showed Mackenna exiting a red convertible with a big ol’ smile on her face.

“We’ve been living at the DMV this week,” Alexis said in the video. “And now we got a real driver! Miles got his permit. Kenna got her license! She’s borrowing Miles’ car for the test, because [hers] is getting smog-tested. Yessss!”

Alexis — who shares the twins and a 17-year-old son, James, with her ex-husband, Jim Bellino — also posted a video of the newly licensed Mackenna driving around the OC.

“What’s it gonna feel like to let mom out of the car and drive yourself to Starbucks and school?” Alexis asked from the front passenger seat.

“Great,” Mackenna responded.

“Don’t act that excited,” Alexis playfully said. “Wow. I expected a lot more excitement than that."

“I can’t wait for you not to be critiquing me on everything,” the teen replied, which prompted her mom to laugh.

The post garnered comments from fans and other Bravolebrities, including RHOC’s Emily SimpsonTamra Judge, and Heather Dubrow, who simply wrote: “So cool!!!”

The family updates came after Alexis addressed whispers about her romantic involvement with John Janssen, the ex-boyfriend of RHOC’s Shannon Storms Beador. The Real for Real founder addressed the matter in an interview with E! News.

“I’m not going to lie, I’ve been hurt,” Shannon told the outlet. “I’ve been hurt a lot in the last couple of weeks because, number one, John said that he didn’t want to be in the public eye, and he’s thrust himself more into the public eye at this point. So, I’m quite confused about that.”

She continued: “I don’t know how to process it How many Orange County Housewives have there been? Is that your dating pool?”
