Although Alexa said KTLA in July 2022 that they will not “break up” their family for more than two weeks at a time, the couple has had to extend the time they have been apart for the past few months.
She said at the time: “What we have set up is that we don’t take on projects at the same time. If they disagree by two weeks, that’s fine. But beyond that, we don’t share our family.”
But in November 2022, Alexa had to be separated from Carlos and her children for 23 days while filming in Paris and Bulgaria “A Paris Proposal” which premieres on Hallmark Channel this Saturday, February 11th. In an Instagram photo Saying goodbye at the airport, she wrote about how hard it was to leave.
“Well, I’m gone! And cry already,” she wrote. “23 days without my beautiful family by my side. We try our best not to go longer than two weeks if we have to. But sometimes that’s just not possible. But it’s moments like this that remind me how blessed I am and how much I love all my stinkers.”
While an Instagram Live Communicating with fans throughout her film shoot, Alexa said that while it was hard being away from her kids for so long, it was also “a little bit awesome” because she was able to focus fully on work. She also said Carlos had a “little help” with the kids but managed everything well at home.
