Nikki Bella said yes to Artem Chigvintsev’s proposal and now, one insider report claims to know how her former fiancé, John Cena reacted to the news. As you may know, it’s been a year and a half since they split and in the meantime, he’s also moved on with Shay Shariatzadeh.
As it turns out, Cena is not upset to hear about the engagement at all!
One source tells HollywoodLife that ‘John is very happy for Nikki and her engagement. He is really happy she has found someone who treats her so well. Nikki was an extremely important part of his life so it does remind him of what they had and he’s also reminded of his proposal to her at Wrestlemania a few years back but he also has thought that they’ve both grown from their relationship and they have moved on.’
You probably know that John and Nikki had a very public relationship for six years!
In April of 2015, he even proposed and they went on to remain engaged for three more years but they never made it to the altar.
The two separated only a few weeks before they were supposed to tie the knot.
Nikki said later, on the Total Bellas podcast that ‘For John and I, the timing was off.’
The insider went on to share that Artem and Nikki’s engagement ‘just makes it all very official and real and that the past is now the past. He knew it was going to happen at some point so instead of taking it in any weird way he is only hoping for the best for her and he only wants to send good vibes her way and hopes she gets everything she deserves with her life with Artem. He knows she deserves all the good fortune and love she is receiving so he is happy.’
