John Cena and Nikki Bella Speak About Their Break-Up Two Days Apart on Same Show7 months ago by Edward Antonelli in TV News
On Monday, WWE superstar and actor John Cena appeared on The Today Show. When speaking about his recent called-off engagement to Nikki Bella, he told hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hota Kotb,
“It’s up and it’s down. It’s been incredibly reflective, which is amazing, but it’s very difficult. I had my heart broken out of nowhere—for me, it was out of nowhere. Anyone who has experienced that knows it comes with a series of bad feelings. I still love Nicole. I would love to marry Nicole. I still would love to have a family with Nicole. It was an unfortunate set of circumstances where our relationship ended. I love her. I want to be with her. I want to make her my wife. I want to be the father of her children. I just want us to work.”
On Tuesday, Nikki appeared on the same show with her twin sister Brie Bella. She responded to his statement by saying,
“I literally was in the middle of the red carpet for the NBCUniversal Upfront and got the breaking news. John, and you guys know this, is absolutely an amazing man. He is such a sweetheart and I truly love him so much. He’s my best friend. But I think a lot of us who go through the wedding planning process are forced to face these issues that we have hiding deep down inside. 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 do not want to be hesitant. I do not want to be regretful.”
Nikki added that she became “exhausted” from all the “sacrifice” in their relationship. She also went on and noted, “I have hope. I really do” about their future.
The heat between the A-List couple can be seen on the upcoming season of E! network Total Bellas. Stay tuned to The Feature Presentation for any updates.
