John Cena and his professional wrestler finance Nikki Bella have called off their engagement just weeks before their wedding date.
Cena and Bella had been together for six years but reportedly argued about some pretty fundamental issues, like having kids. “I love this girl, but I love my life,” Cena said about having kids with Nikki Bella shortly after proposing to her last year.
Cena previously told Nikki Bella that he “can’t give” her children but has never quite specified his reasoning.
And so today, after making their breakup public, Cena and Bella seem to be trying to move on as best they can. The two released a joint statement on Sunday confirming the news.
“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” they told Us Weekly in a statement. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”
Cena followed up the statement with a post to his personal Instagram.
Today, Cena posted another photo to his Instagram with a slightly humorous twist.
The couple’s entire relationship has been pretty public and, since they’re both high profile performers, there’s a solid chance more details will emerge in the coming days.
