Following John Cena's recent interview on Today where he explained about his desire to get married and have kids with Nikki Bella, the female pro wrestler now reveals that she was so shocked after hearing her ex-fiancee's heartfelt plea.
On Wednesday, May 16, the Today show reporters stopped 34-year-old Nikki, along with her wrestling partner and twin sister, Brie Bella, where she reflected on the moving moment and explained what John's recent interview meant to her.
I was so shocked. I literally was in the middle of the red carpet for the NBCUniversal upfronts and got the breaking news. I mean, John — and you guys know this — he is absolutely an amazing man, such a sweetheart, and I truly love him so much. He's my best friend.
Unfortunately, just weeks before the couple awaited wedding, they announced that they were no more together.
I think a lot of us that go through the wedding planning process, I think we kinda have to face — and get forced to face — all of these issues that we have just hiding deep down inside.
During the 41-year-old WWE champion's Monday visit to the Today show, he proved that he understood that.
I love Nicole, and I'm really trying to support her in her trying to find whatever it is that she wanted that made this fall apart in the first place. And, in doing so, I'm also just trying to live. I don't have any other hopes, other than maybe one day, we can work it out.
I just know that a healthy me will be a healthy us. I do have hope for our future, but I know right now I need to work on me. Before I do say those vows and walk down that aisle, I just don't want to be hesitant. I don't want to be regretful.
Fans of the former couple will have a chance to know what led up to Nikki and John's split soon in the new season of the twin sister's E! reality show, Total Bellas, which will hit the television May 20.
Brie believes there's a lesson in it all.
My sister and I were always the type of people who were open books. We have no filters, the good and the bad and the ugly, it's all going on our show. (And this season) shows other women out there that you're not alone — cold feet really exist.
When asked if the reunion is possible, Nikki said, "I definitely have hope. I really do".
