Nikki Bella reacted with shock and surprise after former fiance John Cena made a heartbreaking plea on the Today Show to reunite with his former fiancee.
John made the touching reveal to show hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb about his deep feelings for Nikki.
“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,” he tearfully stated to the Today Show hosts.
In response to John’s statement, Extra TV reported that Nikki was blindsided by her former’s love’s declaration.
On Monday, May 14, an Extra reporter asked the WWE superstar her reaction after the two abruptly called off their wedding.
Nikki stated, “Wow. Well, I’m speechless. That’s crazy.”
She then explained that fans will see just why the couple’s relationship began to unravel during the new season of E!’s Total Bellas.
“It’s going to be hard to relive quite a bit of things for me this season,” she remarked.
“You do get to see a lot of wedding planning and you also get to see what issues wedding planning can bring and what you get kind of just the issues you get to deal with for the rest of your life.
“You got to make a lot of decisions. I didn’t think cold feet and all that type of stuff existed, but it exists,” she explained.
Despite their differences, Nikki did not rule out a reunion with John in the future.
“I have hope. I’m at a point in my life where I kind of lost me and I want to find me and work on me.
“I just want John and I both to live happily ever after whether it’s together or separate and I just don’t want us to go down the road in life and have regrets of like ‘I did this for you’ or ‘you did this for me,’ so I think it’s okay in relationships to take that moment,” she revealed.
“The day I say my vows, I want to say them once and I want to fully mean them, and so that’s what made me hesitant — am I ready to say these vows?” Nikki questioned.
She told People Magazine of a potential future with John, “Only time can tell,” she said. “I definitely do [think we will get married]. I think he’s Mr. Right. He’s Prince Charming. He’s an amazing man.
“I hope that our paths do come back together and I think they will.”
