John Cena and Nikki Bella have been in the spotlight over the last few weeks thanks to their high profile breakup, and they’re both dealing with it in their own way.
Cena appeared on The Today Show on Monday, and he talked about what he’s been going through while also addressing rumors that he’s been enjoying the single life.
“It’s been incredibly reflective, which is amazing. But it’s been very difficult. I had my heart broken out of nowhere, well for me it was out of nowhere. I’ve looked at myself every day, and I’ve tried to evaluate myself and the woman I love. For anyone out there speculating on what I’m doing with my life now — I still love Nicole, I still would love to marry Nicole, I still would love to have a family with Nicole. There’s been a lot of speculation recently about me being seen in public and everyone’s thinking, ‘Oh, John Cena’s enjoying the single life.’ No. I was supposed to be married and have a honeymoon over these two weeks. It’s the first time in 15 years I’ve taken a vacation. I’m in my house alone surrounded by these emotionally strong memories, and every day from 6 to 9 I get out of the house and talk to strangers as social interaction. I don’t want anybody else. I love Nicole.”
Cena also went on to say that he took a long hard look in the mirror while thinking about why he didn’t want children, and he came to the conclusion that he was selfish and stubborn. He also made it clear that he’s willing to go back on all of the things he said he wouldn’t do with Nicole.
“For anyone out there speculating on what’s going on, 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. All that other stuff you see is BS. I’m just trying to live life without her on a very emotional set of time that’s been very difficult for me. I think the greatest takeaway from all this, I know for a fact that I was in love, and I’ve never been in love before.”
