A month after their breakup, John Cena opened up about his feelings after the split with fiancé Nikki Bella and how he wants nothing more than to get back together with her. The tough guy went soft speaking about wanting to start a family with his ‘number one’ and finding it hard to deal with the heart break.
In an emotional tell-all interview with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, Cena revealed that having his heart broken had been tough on him. He admitted that the greatest take away from the break up, for him, was that he definitely knew he was in love with Bella. The WWE wrestler spoke about being grateful to have had the opportunity to be by Bella’s side for six years.
Cena expressed that he would do anything to get Nikki Bella back. He still loved her and would still like to marry her and have a family with her. He added that contrary to popular belief, he was not enjoying single life at all. He was heart broken, living alone at home and lamenting the fact that he was supposed to be on his honeymoon at this time.
He also added that he didn’t want anybody else in his life and he would do whatever it took to support Nicole Bella and make her happy as she tries to ‘find whatever it is she wants.’ He admitted that he hoped that one day the two would work out their differences and get back together.
The hosts questioned Cena about the rumors that he did not want to have children, to which he responded honestly. He said that although he had been stubborn and self-centered at the start of his relationship with Bella six years ago, he had let all that go and was now open to having children. The actor and rapper confessed that he was not the best at communication like most guys out there and may have been unable to express himself properly.
During the intense interview, Cena revealed, “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 April 16, just three weeks before the day of their wedding, Nikki Bella announced on her social media accounts that the couple were breaking up. She asked fans to respect their privacy and stated that the decision was difficult for both of them. Fans were heartbroken at the shocking news and Bella has been avoiding the public eye since the break up. The couple were to be married on May 5th, after being engaged for about a year. They had been dating for 5 years prior to the engagement.
Just days before the breakup, Cena shared a cryptic tweet writing, “Life is funny sometimes. One minute it’s kissing and hugging on you, the next it’s kicking ya square in the nugget bag. Moments make the journey and the powerful play goes on.”
