Nikki Bella and John Cena may not be together anymore, but the two “will be connected forever.”
In an interview with Us Weekly alongside her sister Brie, Nikki announced that Cena had contacted her after she had given birth to her baby, Matteo, whom she shared with her fiancé, Artem Chigvintsev.
“John and I will be tied forever. I get that, like, we had a public relationship on a reality show for six years,” Nikki said of John, who married Shay Shariatzadeh in October. “All I’ve ever wanted was for him to be happy. So, it makes me happy when I see that and, like, him kicking butt in the movie world and all that stuff. I love that!”
“So with the baby, he reached out to Brie and I both,” she continued. “We haven’t had an individual conversation in gosh, I don’t know how long, but it was very short and sweet!”
Nikki and John, 43 years old, were together for over six years until the end of things in summer 2018. Seven months later , in January 2019, Nikki started dating Artem, 38, whom she had partnered with on “Dancing with the Stars” in Season 25.
The longtime WWE star and trained dancer were engaged in November 2019. The two declared their commitment in January 2020 and, a few weeks later, confirmed that they were expecting their first boy. The pair adopted a son named Matteo on July 31st.
