Nikki Bella reacted to John Cena’s Today comments during an interview on the Red Carpet, where he said he was still in love with her and wanted to have her kids. Nikki said she hadn’t seen the interview and seemed slightly taken aback when the interviewer relayed what he’d said.
“Wow. Well, I’m speechless,” she said. “Um, yeah, that’s crazy. Yeah.”
Nikki also talked about the upcoming season of Total Bellas and referred to the breakdown of her and Cena’s relationship that occurred during the planning of their wedding.
“You also get to see what issues wedding planning can bring and what you get, just kind of the issues you have to deal with the rest of your life,” she said. “You have to make a lot of decisions. I didn’t think cold feet and all that type of stuff existed but… it exists.”
Ultimately, Nikki tried to close on a high note, expressing much the same distant hope that Cena did in his interview.
“I have hope,” she said. “I think it’s just I’m at a point in my life where I feel like I kind of lost me and I want to find me and work on me and I just want John and me to live, you know, happily ever after whether it’s together or separate.”
She continued, “I just don’t want us to go down the road in life and have regrets of like ‘I did this for you and you did this for me’. So I think it’s okay in relationships to take that moment. The day I say my vows, I want to say them once and I want to fully mean them so that’s what made me hesitant is ‘Am I read to say these vows?”
Nikki also said that the cameras filming her life put a lot of pressure on her, as well as her family, friends, Cena…
“I think I just started taking care of everyone and forgot about me,” she said. “I think that’s what caused me just, I don’t know, I don’t want to say snap, I don’t want to say breakdown, but something like that.”
