Alexis Stewart is widely known as the daughter of the famous entrepreneur Martha Stewart. However, she has made a separate identity for herself beyond her mother's fame. 

Alexis Stewart is famous for being a radio personality known for shows like Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer and Whatever, Martha. 

Apart from being in the spotlight, she has struggled to be a mother to her children. 

Let’s find out about her struggle with motherhood. 

Alexis Stewart’s Children

Alexis is a mother to two kids; her first child, daughter Jude Stewart, was born on 8th March 2011, and her second child, son Truman Stewart, was born on 6th March 2012. Both of her children were born through surrogacy.

Alexis struggled for five years to have a baby. Finally, she decided to have children at the age of 36, but her fertility had already decreased by that time. She went through many procedures and tried implantation three times but failed.

Adoption was an option, but she preferred to have her own child. As a result, Alexis chose surrogacy, but her surrogates miscarried four times,  leaving her devastated and hopeless about becoming a mother. She even discussed her struggle to conceive a baby on the show, The Orphan Winfrey Show, on 9 October 2007.

However, after struggling for almost five years, she finally became a mother welcoming Jude Stewart. Then, right after a year, she welcomed her son, Truman Stewart. Her son, Truman Stewart, arrived just before his big sister Jude’s first birthday. 

Since the birth of her children, Alexis has stayed away from the spotlight and focused on raising them all by herself. 

Alexis shares how she doesn’t have any problem raising her children as a single mother without the presence of a father in their life. Her children do not have a legal father. She is afraid that her children might have a father like hers or never be here for them.

Alexis didn’t have a good relationship with her parents, and it's possible that this has influenced her desire to be the best mom she can be to her children. 

Alexis Stewart’s Parents

Alexis is the only child of Andrew Stewart and Martha Stewart. Unfortunately, even though she was the only child, she did not have a delightful childhood. 

A child grows well when their parents give them the required attention and love. However, in Alexis’s case, it was the opposite. She had a poor relationship with her parents. She grew up distant from both her parents from a young age because her parents never gave her much of their time. Her parents got divorced in 1990.

When a child has to face their parent's divorce, the news will surely affect them. It was the same for Alexis; in an interview with New York Magazine, she admitted to taking antidepressants in her youth.

However, her relationship with her mother, Martha, improved with time, but her relationship with her father never got better. But, according to reports, Alexis has not spoken to her father, Andrew, since 1988. 

After seeing her parent’s divorce, was she able to date anyone?

Alexis Stewart's Relationship Status

Alexis Stewart is not dating anyone. 

However, she was once married to John Cuti, who served as a lawyer in Alexis' mother Martha's legal cases. 

On 26th September 1997, the two got married in a judge's chamber at the courthouse. Alexis wanted an intimate wedding, so the ceremony consisted of five guests, including her mother, Martha. 

On the wedding day, Alexis had worn a grey flannel suit. Her mother had ordered flowers and cakes and planned the wedding lunch held at Jean Georges on Central Park West.

But the marriage did not last long, and the two separated in 2003 and officially got divorced in 2004.

Interestingly, long after the end of Alexis' marriage, in an episode of The Martha Stewart Show, Martha disclosed that her daughter's wedding was one of the worst days of her life. 

Apart from her personal life, she has made her own name in the industry.
