Real-Life Hallmark Pair Alvina August And Marco Grazzini Have Big Baby News

Alvina August and Marco Grazzini are familiar faces on the Hallmark channel. August has starred in "A Second Chance at Love" and "Love in Design" for the network. Grazzini, on the other hand, has been in "Right in Front of Me" and "A Valentine's Match." The popular Hallmark star might look familiar because he's also on the hit Netflix series "Virgin River," in which he portrays Mike Valenzuela. Grazzini also stars in the April 2023 Hallmark movie, "Hearts in the Game." Sparks fly between Grazzini and co-star Erin Cahill in this baseball-themed film. August's career is also flourishing. Since February 2023, she's been on the sitcom "Animal Control" opposite Joel McHale. 

People reports that August and Grazzini have been together since 2014. Although the couple is low-key, Grazzini regularly posts photos of August on Instagram. However, things are about to get busier for the actors, as they recently announced that they are expecting their first child together.

Their first child is due in August

In early April 2023, Alvina August revealed on Instagram that she was pregnant. August tagged Marco Grazzini in her post, captioned "AUGUST 2023." The photos show Alvina's round belly and multiple sonograms. Grazzini did not make his own announcement on social media. Nevertheless, the couple has been flooded with congratulatory comments on Alvina's post.

Adrina August, presumably one of Alvina's relatives, said, "The whole family is over the moon to welcome this blessing into the world soon! Couldn't think two people that are better suited to be parents. Congratulations." Alvina wrote back, "This baby already has the best aunties in the world."

Actor Benjamin Hollingsworth and Grazzini's "Virgin River" co-star wrote, "Duuuuuuuude – how on earth did I miss this?!? Congrats – this is such amazing news!!! so excited for you guys, and I have sooo much baby gear for you." Actors Colin Lawrence, Teryl Rothery, and Zibby Allen, who star in "Virgin River" alongside Grazzini, also commented on the post.

Alvina August and Marco Grazzini have been engaged since 2019

While there is little information about Alvina August and Marco Grazzini's relationship, we know that Grazzini popped the question in Bali, Indonesia, back in 2019. Grazzini announced that August had accepted his proposal in a post on Instagram. In a 2020 interview with AfterBuzz TV, August opened up about how her relationship with Grazzini came to be while promoting the Hallmark film "Deliver by Christmas."

She revealed that she and Grazzini met through social media. August explained, "I always imagined that I would lock eyes with him across the room and then there would be this magic that I've always seen in '90s movies I guess. So yeah our relationship started off in a very modern sense in that we spoke for three months before we went on our first date ... when you see each other it's just sort of the icing on the cake because we've already got such a strong connection."

As for her pregnancy, August posted a video of herself dancing on Instagram, thanking everyone for their well-wishes. She also discussed her pregnancy woes and wrote, "my skin's dry, bladder won't let me be great & I'm down to my last pair of stretchy waist pants but my hair is long & that nausea is gone!!!!!!" Grazzini left a cheeky comment that said, "Baby will get dancing genes from you at least."
