After weeks of swirling dating rumors, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum has finally gone Instagram official with John Janssen, the former beau of RHOC mom Shannon Storms Beador. Alexis confirmed their status in the early hours of December 25, when she revealed a massive ring that John had gifted her for Christmas.

“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 ring was made by Van Cleef & Arpels, a French jewelry maker that is known for its four-leaf clover motif. Alexis’ yellow gold piece was from the brand’s Perlée collection and featured its signature “pearl” trim with dozens of stones around the clover band. 

Are Alexis Bellino and John Janssen engaged?

There’s no doubt that the post would've left some fans with one big question: Did John ask for Alexis' hand in marriage? The former OC 'Wife preemptively shut down those rumors with a series of hashtags. “Not engaged lol,” she added before confirming the gift was a promise ring.

The two sparked dating rumors back in November, several months after Alexis ended her three-year engagement to Andy “Drew” Bohn. The mother of three made it clear she still had love for her ex-fiancé and that their split was amicable; however, they 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.”

In the weeks following the announcement, Alexis and John were photographed together at various events and occasions, including a recent birthday party for Grandma Janssen.

Although Alexis initially declined to confirm her relationship status, John’s ex-girlfriend Shannon said was struggling to “process” all the rumors.

“I’m not going to lie, I’ve been hurt,” she told E! News earlier this month. “I’ve been hurt a lot in the last couple of weeks because, No. 1, 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… I don’t know how to process it. How many Orange County Housewives have there been? Is that your dating pool?”
