Alex was born on April 5, 1985, in Sabetha, Kansas, the son of Stacey Baumgartner and Cindy (Wittmer) Baumgartner. Alex grew up in Hiawatha, Kansas with his two brothers, Nick and Jake, and his sister, Neah. As a teenager, he loved to play football, participate in weightlifting, and to hang out with friends. Alex was always the life of the party!

Alex and Katie moved back to Hiawatha, Kansas where Alex worked for Harley-Davidson in St. Joseph, Missouri. A few years later, Alex and his father-in-law, Paul O’Connor, started a construction company where Alex worked as the Vice President of construction.

In his spare time, he volunteered at his local church, however, Alex’s real passion was riding and working on motorcycles.
