The single mother-of-one looked at ease during the outing, peering into the shop window and texting on her phone as she stood outside, however Richie was unfortunately nowhere to be seen.

A witness told Be that the bridal store "seemed to catch Alex's eye" as she strolled down the street.

"She looked in through the window before briefly entering," the source said.

"She spent about 10 minutes inside before coming out again."

It's unclear if Alex ended up trying on any dresses, however Be has reached out to Moira Hughes for comment.

"He jumped in [bed], gave me a hug and then we just chilled there for a bit."

Alex, who shares Elijah with ex-husband Joel Porter, added that the meeting between her two boys adding "felt so right."

While the couple exchanged "I love you's" during their time on the reality show, they had previously said they were putting marriage on hold.

“We’ve just come off the back of this wild ride and it’s really important to work on my relationship with Alex,” Richie told after the finale aired in September.

“You have to have a solid foundation before you start getting down on one knee.”

“Rich and I are not there yet,” Alex also added.

"We want to enjoy this chapter first before we go on to the next.”
