Real Housewives of Miami is finally back after much speculation and many years of waiting! There are some new cast members, including the first ever LGBTQ+ housewife! There are also some familiar faces that came back to the franchise after all these years. One such housewife is Alexia Echevarria. And Alexia came with the personal drama this season.
When we originally met Alexia, she was seemingly happily married to Herman Echevarria. The couple separated in 2015 and sadly, Herman passed away from a heart attack a year later. Thankfully, Alexia was able to find love again and announced her engagement to Todd Nepola in 2019. But it hasn’t been smooth sailing getting to the altar. Their wedding was postponed due to coronavirus and her son, Peter Rosello, had plenty of friction with Todd. Alexia also lost her mother of covid on August 25th of this year, which was supposed to be her wedding day. Alexia said at the time, “What was supposed to be the happiest day of my life today has turned out to be the saddest.”
As reported by Page Six, the couple was finally able to say “I do” in a ceremony at the Eden Rock hotel in St. Barths. Alexia wrote on her Instagram, “This year has been a whirlwind to say the least, but finishing it off as Mr. & Mrs. gives me hope for the years to come. Thank you all for your kind wishes and love. 12.16.21”

Alexia and Todd laughed and cried while reading their vows to each other. They also exchanged custom white gold wedding bands. Alexia wore an stunning gown and Todd went more traditional in a navy tux.
Alexia gushed after the ceremony, “It still feels like a dream I can’t even put into words. [It was] perfect for us! Truly everything we wanted. Just him and I … We look forward to celebrating with our friends and family in 2022.” As for one of her favorite moments, Alexia shared, “was when I closed my eyes, kissed and tossed my flower bouquet into the ocean while thinking of my mom and dad. They both loved flowers and the ocean. I could feel both of them right by my side.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
