Due to the pandemic, they had to postpone their wedding date until August of that year. 

However, they cancelled their ceremony yet again after the passing of Alexia’s mother.

In December 2021, the couple tied the knot with an intimate wedding ceremony in St. Barts.

Ahead of season five of the RHOM reality show, Alexia told Bravo that marriage changed the dynamics of their blended family unit.

‘I like to say that the marriage is only really a piece of paper, because I feel like I’ve been married to Todd since we started this relationship in 2017 and we lived together,’ she said.

‘But I feel like now we feel it’s more like a family thing,’ she added. ‘I feel like he’s taking more responsibility as a husband [and] as a stepfather.’
