Does distance makes the heart grow fonder? It seems to be the case because John Cena and Nikki Bella are giving their love another shot.
This comes after Bella, 34, called off her wedding to the 41-year-old WWE star in April. “Nikki and John are working on their relationship and taking it day by day. They appreciate all of their fans and their continued support,” a rep told E! News.
“Calling off the wedding was the right decision at the moment and their relationship only grew from it. It didn’t mean that any love was lost, or that they lost any feelings for one another, but they both have realised that they love each other and want to be with one another,” an insider was quoted as saying.
Prior to their split, Cena and Bella were together off and on for 6 years. During the recent episode of E!’s “Total Bellas”, Cena’s beau was seen confessing to her twin sister, Brie, about calling off the wedding. “I feel such a huge piece is just missing from me. It was just weird. First morning in 6 years not to talk to him, you know?” she said.
In speaking with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on “Today”, the hunky actor also confessed about wanting to get back together with his sweetheart. “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,” Cena shared.
On the latest episode of “Total Bellas”, Cena and Bella were shown meeting each other for the first time since calling off their wedding. “You didn’t even call or text me yesterday,” Bella told Cena, who admitted, “I’m supposed to stay away from you. It’s taking every fibre of my being not to text or call you. I’m just trying to do the right thing.”
