Alexis Bellino celebrates her 47th birthday

In a January 17 Instagram post, the Orange County mom shared a photo of herself at a restaurant, holding a silver tray. The tray was decked with a glittering crown and a frothy, fruit-garnished drink. "It’s a beautiful mocktail on a platter for my birthday luncheon today!" she wrote. "My girls love me…that’s for sure. More pics soon!"

True to her word, Alexis returned to Instagram shortly thereafter to share more photos from the fun-filled gathering. The second batch of photos featured a good look at Alexis' birthday cake, which was decked with red-velvet cake crumbs and a golden "Happy Birthday" sign.That wasn't it for sweetness: Alexis also had a strawberry-flecked dessert that came on a dish bearing a customized birthday message.

For her celebratory lunch, Alexis wore knee-high black boots with a taupe, one-shouldered dress. She also wore a gold choker and a chunky watch, and appeared to be wearing the sparkly Van Cleef & Arpels ring that her beau John Janssen gave to her this past Christmas. 

John Janssen gives Alexis Bellino a promise ring 

Speaking of John's Christmas gift to Alexis, the California mama took to Instagram this past December to share a close up look at the bauble, and to open up about her love for "J."

Alexis confirmed that she's dating John in the early hours of December 25, when she revealed the massive ring that he had gifted her. “Words cannot. Actions do,” she captioned the post. “I will no longer feel guilty. I will not apologize. Love will create it’s own story. I love you Johnny J.”

The former OC 'Wife preemptively shut down rumors with a series of hashtags. “Not engaged lol,” she added before confirming that the gift was a promise ring, rather than an engagement ring. 

Alexis Bellino and John Janssen's relationship history 

John and Alexis first sparked dating rumors back in November, several months after Alexis ended her three-year engagement to Andy “Drew” Bohn. Alexis made it clear she still had love for her ex-fiancé and that their split was amicable. However, the former couple chose “to pursue separate paths” following the death of Alexis’ mom, Penelope. 

“The death of a close person like your mom either makes a couple or breaks a couple,” she told Page Six in early November. “And, unfortunately for me, it broke us… I felt it was better if we just take different paths for now and he agreed. I just know it was the best decision for us.”
