In the caption, Alexis wrote: "Lots of emotions and memories (both happy and sad) cleaning out mom’s house and putting it up for sale. Thank goodness for my beau and stepdad being my rocks."

Alexis Bellino reveals how her mother's death impacted her relationship with Andy "Drew" Bohn 

Alexis and her former fiancé, Andy “Drew” Bohnbroke up and called off their engagement in September. 

Alexis put out a statement at the time, which read in part, "Drew and I have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. Despite this, our love for each other remains strong, and we both sincerely wish nothing but the best for one another. We recognize that it’s in our best interest to pursue separate paths.” 

Later, the mother of three said in an interview with Page Six, "The death of a close person like your mom either makes a couple or breaks a couple,” Alexis said. “And, unfortunately for me, it broke us.” 

Alexis also took note of her mother's passing when she first announced that she and Andy were no longer together. "We kindly ask for your thoughts and prayers for both of our families as we navigate through this breakup, especially considering the recent [loss] of my mother," she said. 

Further elaborating on the breakup in her conversation with Page Six, Alexis said that she was able to "recognize" that she and Andy ultimately weren't compatible. "I felt it was better if we just take different paths for now and he agreed,” she added. “I just know it was the best decision for us.”
