It's not over! Nikki Bella and John Cena are back together a month after calling off their wedding
Nikki Bella and John Cena are back together! The couple split just weeks before their wedding but it seems like the distance only made them stronger. A source close to the couple told US Weekly that their time apart happened to be just what Nikki needed in order to be sure about the relationship.
“Nikki called off the wedding earlier this month so she could have more time to make a decision with what she wanted in life," the source said. At the same time, the pair does not regret calling off the wedding because the time apart just made them realize how much they needed each other. “Calling off the wedding was the right decision at the moment and their relationship only grew from it," the source said.
"It didn’t mean that any love was lost, or that they lost any feelings for one another, but they both have realized that they love each other and want to be with one another," the source continued. The pair announced their split in April, just weeks before their wedding which was set to take place on May 5.
“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the couple, who had been together for six years, said in a statement tweeted out on April 16. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.” John and Nikki got engaged in April 2017 on live TV during a couple’s match. Nikki was taken by surprise but did not hesitate to say 'yes' to John.
However, even before their split was announced there were several other hints that things were not going right between the couple. In a teaser of Total Bellas which was released before the couple announced their separation the clip showed the couple looking upset. The video, which was released on Tuesday, January 30, showed the couple crying and it looked like they were discussing their possible future together. “So we really want to call this off?” Nikki asks John in the clip.
However, later, there were several reasons that fit perfectly for an explanation as to why they decided to call the wedding off. To begin with, Nikki knew the exact moment when she knew she can't marry John and it happened to be when she was trying out wedding dresses. She recalled not feeling happy like everyone expected her to be.
At the same time, Nikki wanted to be a mom while John never wants to have kids. However, after the split, John recalled that staying apart from her had been tough and in an interview admitted that he wanted her back. It sure does look like the couple has been able to work things out but it just makes us wonder what would be their new wedding date?
