Nikki Bella and John Cena may have broken up their relationship, but there’re still some particles of love left for each other in the former couple.
Multiple reports claimed that the wrestlers called it quits due to their separate views on parenthood, but on breakfast show Today’s Monday edition, John expressed his intent of doing whatever it takes to make Nikki happy.
“I still love Nicole, I still would love to marry Nicole, I still would love to have a family with Nicole…,” he said. “I don’t want anybody else. I love Nicole and I’m really trying to support her in her trying to find whatever it is she wants that made this fall apart in the first place…”
Later that day, Nikki and twin sister Brie were cornered by a reporter for TV show Extra who detailed what John had said and asked Nikki for her thoughts. “Wow. Well, I’m speechless. That’s crazy,” she began, before adding that she just wants both herself and John to “live happily ever after” – whether that means together or separately.
“I have hope. I’m at a point in my life where I feel like I kind of lost me and I want to find me and work on me,” she explained. “I just want John and I both to live happily ever after whether it’s together or separate and I just don’t want us to go down the road in life and have regrets of like ‘I did this for you’ or ‘You did this for me,’ so I think it’s okay in relationships to take that moment.
“The day I say my vows, I want to say them once and I want to fully mean them, and so that’s what made me hesitant – am I ready to say these vows?”
John and Nikki began dating in late 2012, and they became engaged at the Wrestlemania 33 event in April, 2017.
