Stephen Colletti’s Journey Through Fame And Romance

If Taylor Swift’s latest album release has you going back to watch all the old music videos to see the pop star’s legacy unfold album by album and pausing the “White Horse” video too many times to get a closer look at the gorgeous man trying to swoon Swift, then this article is for you.

The white horse star is none other than Stephen Colletti, who recently got engaged to NASCAR reporter Alex Weaver. So let’s dig deeper into the Colletti conundrum!

All About Stephen Colletti

Stephen Colletti, American actor and television personality, was born on February 7, 1986. Colletti, the youngest child of Bruce Colletti and Lorilee (née Goodall), was born in Newport Beach, California. 

Colletti has an older sister, Lauren, and an older brother, John. 

Stephen’s acting career took a jumpstart when he was invited to feature on Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, a reality television series that centered around the lives of affluent teenagers and was commissioned by MTV in 2004. Along with the rest of the first season’s cast, Colletti also returned for the second season.

The CW teen drama series One Tree Hill, announced in January 2007, became Colletti’s big break when he was cast in a significant role for the show’s fourth season (Episode 12). Colletti played Chase Adams, a high school student with aspirations of saving money for marriage. Throughout the ensuing seasons, Colletti continued to play a pivotal, recurring role. It was confirmed in November 2010 that Colletti had been promoted to core series regular for the eighth season of the show.

Stephen And Alex’s Dating Milestones

Alex Weaver was recognized for her work at ESPN, where she worked in a variety of positions across three years, including on-air talent, contributor, and student reporter. From 2015 to 2016, she worked as a student reporter for Raycom Sports. From 2016 to 2017, she worked as a multimedia journalist and reporter for Raycom Media.

Stephen’s fiance Weaver recently joined NASCAR as a reporter and host. In 2017, she disclosed that she had taken a job with the Charlotte-based racing company. Weaver reportedly grew up around NASCAR with her grandfather being an avid fan and making her curious about racing from a young age.

Reportedly the couple went out on Nov. 15, 2021, for their first date. The Laguna Beach celebrity eventually asked her to marry him two years after their first date. As of 2023, Colletti will be 37 years old, while Alex will be 27. This means that the two are ten years apart in age. 

Colletti asked his girlfriend to marry him while on vacation in Italy in 2023. The grand proposal took place in Rome’s Giardino degli Aranci Park, the TV personality proposed using a ring that he co-designed with Ring Concierge. The engaged couple enjoyed a romantic dinner at Da Enzo, an Italian restaurant, to celebrate their big day.

Before Alex, Colletti dated Kristin Cavallari during their high school years, a romance that made the on-again, off-again pair notoriously famous in Laguna Beach. Their romance—which featured a love triangle with costar Lauren Conrad—was chronicled on the MTV program.

But what’s more intriguing is that for a 2019 episode of The InField, Weaver spent time and bonded with Colletti’s high school girlfriend, Kristin. During the event, Cavallari showed the NASCAR host around her Uncommon James boutique in Nashville.
