Former ‘Teen Mom 3’ Star Alex Sekella Announces Her Engagement

“We’re getting hitched!”

It was a very merry Christmas for former Teen Mom 3 star Alex Sekella!

Alex– who fans first met on the fourth season of 16 and Pregnant— announced on Wednesday that she is engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Tim Peters.

“A few days ago this incredible man asked me to be his wife. #happilyeverafter,” Alex wrote in the caption of a collage of photos of her and her boyfriend standing next to the Christmas tree.

In the comment section of the post, Alex told a fan that Tim proposed with a tanzonite stone ring.

Alex and Tim have been dating since 2015. (‘Teen Mom 3’ was cancelled in 2014, so Tim never appeared on the show.) Alex has said in the past that Tim serves as a father figure to Arabella, her seven-year-old daughter with her ex Matt McCann.

Since ‘Teen Mom 3’ ended, Alex has kept a low-profile, unlike her co-stars Briana DeJesus and Mackenzie McKee, who have stayed in the ‘Teen Mom’ spotlight.

In April 2017, shortly after The Ashley broke the news that Briana was being added to the Teen Mom 2 cast, Alex posted a message to Instagram explaining why she would never want to do reality TV again.

“I’ve been able to start a normal life and start a REAL career that will last a very long time and benefit my children,” she wrote. “I’ve also been able to find a real relationship that won’t be picked and prodded at by the world to see. I have had a pretty drama-free life since the end of ‘Teen Mom 3’ and I don’t believe that any of that would’ve happened if I had not removed myself.”

After finishing teen mom 3 and being told they weren't continuing I said there and then that I'm done with filming, I'm wiping my hands clean of this and moving forward. So I'm sure when the discussion about pulling cast members from teen mom 3 for teen mom 2 my name was probably not even mentioned because they knew that I did not want it. Honestly though that was the best decision I could of made. I've been able to start a normal life and start a REAL career that will last a very long time and benefit my children. I've also been able to find a real relationship that won't be picked and prodded at by the world to see. I have had a pretty drama free life since the end of teen mom 3 and I don't believe that any of that would've happened if I had not removed myself.

Alex is one of only two girls from her season of “16 and Pregnant” who has not had another baby. (The other is Sabrina Solares, by the way.)

She has not revealed when she and Tim plan to tie the knot.

  1. She was probably not discussed for a TM2 pull because she didn’t continue to make a train wreck of her life. Remember they were replacing Farrah and needed viewers, not a duplicate Chelsea storyline. Good for this girl getting her stuff together. Like someone else mentioned, we all do dumb stuff in our youth, it is part of how we *should* learn to grow.


  2. I have a lot of respect for her in regards to her parenting and independence. The girl was 17 years old, working two jobs, in school, and chose to raise her baby. That being said, I do believe she got pregnant on purpose hoping it would “cure” Matt of his drug issues and tie him to her forever. Thankfully she walked away from that idea and did her job as a mother and seems to have done very well at it. God bless this man though, she was absolutely horrible to watch, let alone be around. Her voice was the reason I never even tried watching TM3.


  3. Any mom who chooses not to be on reality tv has got to be a notch above those who do!

    Whatever happened to her Baby Daddy? Is he still alive?


  4. So happy for her! We all do dumb shit when we are young, so no judgement from me. The way she cleaned up her act and gave her daughter a stable life is admirable. I hope they have a great life together 🙂


  5. Ugh she was the worst! Her mom was awful too. She kicked her out because she wouldn’t give the baby to her friend’s parents.


  6. A girl who was on the show before but is HUMBLE and knows a real career is more important than the reality show one. Congrats and wish you a happy life!


  7. Tanzanite is such a gorgeous stone. I love my tanzanite necklace

    Congrats to her. She seems to have a normal life, which is great. I didn’t care for her on 16P or TM3 so it’s nice that she seems to have matured a lot
