Additionally, Michael chose not to disclose the reason for the couple’s breakup. Alex has also remained tight-lipped about the reason for the end of their engagement.

The news comes after Michael proposed to the world-renowned chef in June 2020. At the time, Alex told People that there was no rush to the altar, but she was excited about the festivities.

"We're not in any hurry, but I want to have a blowout," Alex told the publication at the time. "I want a tri-state rager."

Michael had proposed on her birthday (June 20), which Alex had announced in a since-deleted Instagram post.

Alex was previously married to Brandon Clark, with whom she shares a daughter named Ava, born in 2007. Alex and Brandon met in 2006 at New York's Institute of Culinary Education and wed the following year before ultimately splitting in 2015.

In early 2022, Alex appeared to spill some tea about her romantic life.

Per Closer Weekly, the chef posted an interesting response to a fan question via her Instagram Stories in February 2022. After a fan asked the chef about “a skill or talent she wished she had,” Alex's reply was pretty cryptic.

“Not being a sucker for love,” Alex replied, via the outlet.

She went on to answer another question about her regrets in life, saying: “Some of my biggest regrets have only happened in the last couple of years. I honestly haven’t been able to process them all well or gracefully. I use cooking, therapy, exercise, friends, sleep, water, time, crying and cake for healing.”

Whatever happens with Alex's romantic life in the future, we’d like to wish her all the best.
