Alex has been married to a man named Sam Kass since 2014. According to The Sun, Sam and Alex first met at the White House correspondent dinner party being hosted that year.

Per The Sun's report, Sam was promoted from a position as a personal chef to the senior advisor on nutrition policy during his time with the administration.

Sam proved himself worthy and continued moving up with the Obamas. Later on, he worked alongside Michelle Obama to help with her anti-childhood obesity campaign as the executive director.
