Alex Drummond is famous for being the daughter of award-winning blogger and celebrity chef Ree Drummond. Ree hosts a cooking show on the Food Network called The Pioneer Woman. We have watched Alex and her siblings grow on the show, and as a result, they have become celebrities in their own right.
Alex is the oldest of four siblings in the Drummond household. She has featured less on her mom’s reality show since she left Pawhuska, Oklahoma, to work as an associate consultant for a management agency in Dallas, Texas. Nevertheless, people are still interested in Alex’s private life, and particularly, her relationship with Mauricio Scott.
This article will provide the details about Alex and Mauricio’s relationship.
Alex married Mauricio on 1st May 2021 at the family’s Oklahoma ranch
Alex Drummond and Mauricio Scott wed on 1st May 2021 at the family’s Pawhuska, Oklahoma, ranch. Per a wedding article posted on The Pioneer Woman website, the day was more than perfect. “It was even more special than any of us could have hoped for,” Ree said.
Mauricio couldn’t hold back tears of joy as he saw Alex walking down the aisle. It was the first time he’d seen the lace Monique Lhuillier dress that Alex wore. “It makes that moment so much more special, seeing her for the first time at the wedding,” Mauricio said.
Drummond supported Scott’s decision not to see the dress fully. “When I thought about the wedding day, that’s what imagined: my dad getting to walk me down the aisle – especially considering his accident and everything that’s happened lately – and seeing Mauricio for the first time.”
The couple exchanged personal vows before being declared husband and wife. Alex attached the following caption alongside a series of photos of the ceremony:
“Mr. and Mrs. Scott. Don’t really have the words to describe this weekend, and don’t think I will for a while. But we are beaming with joy and gratitude. I married my best friend and it has already been the sweetest gift!!! Glory be to God. P.S. Prepare for many photo dumps to come because I will never stop reliving this weekend!!”
Alex and her college sweetheart Mauricio started dating in 2018 and got engaged in August 2020
Alex and Mauricio met at Texas A&M University and started dating. They made their relationship public in 2018, and they have been going strong ever since. The couple has gone on many trips together, including a recent excursion to Cedar Creek Lake. Alex posted a photo of herself and Mauricio and added the caption, “Thing’s I’m feeling thankful for: The lake, sunshine, hot Cheetos, & my best pals!”
Alex and Mauricio’s relationship shares some similarities with Alex’s parent’s relationship. Like Alex and Mauricio, Ree and her husband Ladd met during their time in college and fell for each other. It remains to be seen whether Alex and Mauricio will emulate Alex’s parents and get married.
The couple took the next step towards marriage after Alex accepted Mauricio’s marriage proposal. Alex posted a series of Instagram photos of the proposal, and added the following caption:
“Still waiting for someone to pinch me??!?! Mauricio Scott is the sweetest picture of God’s goodness and provision. And I get to spend FOREVER with him!! I love you, fiancé!!!!!!”
Alex’s mom refuses to refer to Mauricio as Alex’s boyfriend
In July 2018, Ree revealed via an Instagram post that she refuses to refer to Mauricio as her daughter’s boyfriend. She explained that she is supportive of the relationship, but the name ‘boyfriend’ troubles her. Ree wrote:
“I can’t say the word ‘boyfriend’ as it relates to my girls. It just won’t come out of my mouth. It isn’t so much that I’m in denial or afraid to face the fact that my girls are growing up – it’s more of an Elaine Benes thing… Anyway, please enjoy this photo of my daughter Alex and her FRIEND, Mauricio!”
