Fans of WWE were shocked to learn that John Cena and his fiancée, Nikki Bella, had split after five years of dating. The pair got engaged in front of the world at WrestleMania 33.
However, a few weeks ago, Nikki realized that her future husband would never change his mind on a very important topic — children.
The professional wrestler has always made it clear that while he loves the Total Divas star, he has no plans to become a father, ever!
Sources claimed that Nikki had her fingers crossed that as the wedding date approached, the WWE icon would change his mind — he never did, and she decided to call the wedding off.
During his first public appearance since the split, John broke his silence and had this to say about his almost-wife: “It sucks. There’s no other way to say [it]. I love Nicole with all my heart, and that is that. The one take away – and it sucks – but the one takes away I can have for me is that… because I feel so heartbroken, I know I was in love, and I will never be able to take that away.”
A source close to the athlete said his first failed marriage broke him and he felt that he was going to make the same mistakes with Nikki and did not have the heart to hurt her.
The family friend said: “John is a man who has control of everything in his life and Nikki was his wildcard in a good way. She was a person that helped him out of his shell, but that shell is where John needs always to be. It is just how he ticks. He has been married once before. He had completely different ideas of what he wanted for his life, and that is what destroyed his prior relationship. He did not want to go through that with Nikki.”
The tipster went on to explain: “He still loves her and has so much respect for her, but he cannot marry her because he would want to put his full effort into her and the relationship. [John] knows he can not to do that at the moment— or ever — because his career is what he needs to focus on.”
It is being reported that Nikki is hoping to find a man who loves her and wants to have a family with her.
While the split hurts her, she does not hate John because he was always honest about the fact that he did not want children in his life.
