Nancy Pelosi's daughter is just as familiar with the political scene as her mother, the 52nd Speaker of the United States House of Representatives — but despite not being a congresswoman herself, Alexandra has seen it through a different lens. The youngest of the Pelosi daughters, Alexandra is a filmmaker and documentarian who's captured her mother throughout all aspects of her life, between following her through the halls of Congress and documenting her calls with Mike Pence at home while she's doing laundry. Often filmed in cinéma vérité style, the filmmaker's documentaries rarely ever include sit-down interviews with the outgoing House Speaker because "Nancy Pelosi is never going to sit on the couch and open up for you," she told the New York Times. "If you want to learn anything from her, you just have to watch her work," Alexandra added of her mom, which is exactly what viewers will learn from the Dec. 13 debut of her most recent HBO documentary, Pelosi in the House. From her early love of filmmaking to her Emmy-nominated work, here's everything to know about Alexandra. Alexandra Pelosi Says Dad's Wounds Are 'Healing' After Hammer Attack — But Emotional Scars Remain She's the youngest daughter of Nancy Pelosi's five children Roy Rochlin/FilmMagic Nancy and her husband Paul Pelosi had five children between 1963 and 1970, of which Alexandra is the youngest daughter. Her siblings — all of which are "very different," according to Alexandra — include sisters Jacqueline Pelosi, Christine Pelosi and Nancy Corinne Prowda and brother Paul Pelosi Jr. They all grew up in San Francisco, California. Alexandra is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and received a master's in communications management from the University of Southern California in 1993. Ever since she was young, she had an interest in film, an intrigue that laid the foundation for her successful future.

The six-time, Emmy-nominated film chronicled President George W. Bush's campaign trail — of which Alexandra "brought a home video camera along and started taking snapshots" during her time at NBC. The movie was released by HBO in 2002. Nancy Pelosi Said She Wanted to 'Punch' Donald Trump During Jan. 6 Insurrection, Video Shows She's made 14 documentaries, including her recent Pelosi in the House Chip Somodevilla/Getty Journeys With George might've marked Alexandra's first film success, but her interest in moviemaking began at an early age. In fact, it started long before her mother became a Democratic congresswoman. Alexandra told the New York Times that she's been filming her mom "forever," while noting that "it started with a disposable camera I got for Christmas when I was little." She added, "I became the paparazzi of the family. Taking pictures gave me something to do — the boring political functions." To date, Alexandra has made 14 documentaries. In 2020, she released American Selfie: One Nation Shoots Itself, a Showtime documentary that chronicles the beginning of the pandemic in March and April of that year, centering on America's darkest moments. Jan. 6 Committee Airs Never-Before-Seen Footage of Lawmakers During Capitol Riot: 'Do You Believe This?' Most recently, Alexandra debuted an intimate body of work with the release of Pelosi in the House starting Dec. 13 on HBO. The documentary portrays the grit and determination of her mom Nancy, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, culled from over 800 hours of footage that spans decades. The film not only highlights the major life milestones that she's achieved leading up to the inauguration of President Joe Biden in January 2021, but it also showcases the footage she captured from the Jan. 6, 2021, riots at the U.S. Capitol. "She thinks of the Capitol as the temple of democracy — a sacred place, more than the Vatican, probably. Jan. 6 was a scar on her soul," Alexandra told the New York Times ahead of the documentary's release. She's married to journalist Michiel Vos Patrick McMullan/Patrick McMullan via Getty Alexandra wed Dutch journalist and naturalized American citizen Michiel Vos in June 2005. He was one of the reporters on-site during the 2021 insurrection. Vos was reporting from outside the Capitol while Alexandra and one of their sons were taken to shelter inside the building. At the time, he took part in a phone interview for the Dutch television channel RTL 4's talk show Jinek. "I've never experienced anything like it," he said on call at the time. "I was standing in a melee when people literally climbed the walls of the Capitol — climbed up — like a sort of sea of people out of a sort of post-apocalyptic film…" He continued, "I'm standing like a sort of tourist, a bad tourist, outside alone and I haven't had any contact with [my family] for three hours because I can't make [phone] contact." Vos was highlighted in Alexandra's documentary, Citizen U.S.A., which premiered in 2011 on HBO. Dutch-born, Vos was among the many immigrants-turned-American citizens the filmmaker documented as she visited a swearing-in ceremony in each state during their family's 50-state road trip. She's the mom of two kids Michael Loccisano/Getty for HBO Vos' decision to become a naturalized American citizen came after he and Alexandra welcomed their two children into the world, sons Paul and Thomas. During an interview with New York Public Radio, Alexandra explained that her husband felt he needed "to have the rights to protect them and to fit in" because he "didn't want to be a foreigner in his own family." Although young, Paul and Thomas haven't shied away from the spotlight. In fact, they've made several appearances alongside their grandmother, Nancy, at a number of her political events and major milestones throughout her career. "She invites the family to everything — every State of the Union, every time she gets sworn in," Alexandra told the NYT of Nancy.
