Prior to moving, Alexa worked as an actress in television films on the Hallmark channel.
Former actress and her husband Nickelodeon The pursuit of success star Carlos PenaVega met during a Bible study group in California and got engaged in 2013. Four months later, they married, gathered their children, and moved to Hawaii in 2017 to devote their lives to their faith.
Speaking about the start of their relationship, Alexa’s husband Carlos said, “We both met each other at this groundbreaking moment in our lives, when we were both very eager to grow in our faith. And so our relationship began. And it was amazing because all of our relationships were based on Bible study, the church and our faith.”
The couple recently wrote a memoir titled What if love is everything? Life for Jesus in a self-consuming world.
Alexa told Fox News that the book was written to inspire more people to get married.
“We were so excited about the marriage and the idea of maybe sharing our testimony with others,” she said.
“It seemed like all the media portrayed the marriage as sucking. This took away the sacredness of the marriage. We felt like marriage was dying and we wanted to revive it for people and get them interested again.”
The actress made headlines last year for getting back at people for denouncing her upbringing after she accidentally ripped off her two-year-old son’s finger with a door.
“Social media can be very frustrating,” she wrote.
“But after seeing the comments about people questioning my upbringing and suggesting that I slammed the door in a fit of rage… absolutely not. I just closed the door. This is literally what happened. I know I can never please everyone and people will be ugly to be ugly… and all I can do for these people is pray for them.”
On the night of the accident, she explained, “When the kids were being put to bed, I got Kington’s fingers caught in the hinge of the bathroom door. His index finger is bruised and slightly bloody… but his middle finger took the brunt and was cut off from the first knuckle near the tip.
“They were unable to reattach a piece of his finger. Poor baby,” Alexa said after the baby was taken to the hospital.
“But the other 9 are so cute! He will be more than fine.
