In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Alexis reveals her new passion as a clothing designer, and she gives us a first sneak peak at her amazing couture dress line.
"I am truly inspired by Valentino and Cavalli with Dolce and Gabbana fabrics and fit. I've added by own personal twist," Bellino told RadarOnline.com.
"I've been designing my line for 1 year and I'm really excited about the results."
Originally from the small town of Hannibal, Missouri, Alexis is now living the Southern California dream in one of the most prominent and envied areas of Orange County. Alexis met her husband Jim in 2005, and he completely supports his wife's new endeavor.
"I have always said that being a great wife and mother comes first but Jim is super supportive of me working.
"He thinks I look hot in my new line," Alexis explains jokingly.
