Alexis Bellino’s Kids Nearly Drown

Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino is breaking her silence on the recent report stating her twin daughters almost drowned during the 4th of July weekend.

TMZ broke the story on Tuesday that Alexis and husband Jim Bellino left their stroller unattended while they were off “doing something” and it ended up rolling into a pool. According to TMZ, one lifeguard pulled the stroller out of the water with one child still in it, while Jim dove in to save the other child.

Alexis however gives a different version of events on her website. She states she and Jim turned their backs for a quick minute to say goodbye to some people, and the stroller ended up in the pool because she forgot to put on the brakes. Alexis also claims Jim was the one who saved both girls.

Below is what Alexis had to say -

“On Sunday, July 4th, my family was leaving the Balboa Bay Club swimming pool in the late afternoon. As we were leaving, I turned to say goodbye. Our girls were in their stroller and I thought I had put the brake on, but apparently I didn’t. My husband, Jim, and I were both standing close to the stroller. Within seconds, the stroller had rolled towards the pool and a stroller wheel rolled off the edge of the pool. Before either of us could grab the stroller, a second wheel rolled off the edge, and the stroller went into the pool. Of course, Jim instantly went into the pool. He grabbed both of the girls himself and lifted both of them out of the water. Because the girls were not strapped into the stroller, and Jim was right there, their heads did not even go under water.

While we are not making light of this incident, and have been reminded to never take our eyes off the children for even a second when near water, it has been so hurtful to know how this experience has been mischaracterized in the media. To all of you who have offered your support, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino nearly lost two of her children on the 4th of July according to TMZ.

The accident occured at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach, CA when Alexis left her stroller unattended … and it rolled into a pool.

Sources tell TMZ that sometime during the holiday celebration, Alexis and her husband Jim Bellino were off “doing something” … and the stroller — carrying 2 toddlers — toppled into the pool.

One lifeguard pulled the stroller out of the water with one child still in it, while Jim dove in to save the other child. Jim however tells TMZ a slightly different story — claiming, “There was no lifeguard needed or involved.”

According to TMZ, both of the Bellino children are fine and didn’t need medical attention.
