They started dating in 2012 and were engaged in 2017. But it shocked the WWE universe when Cena and Bella had to call off their engagement in April 2018. On social media, Bella informed her admirers of the heartbreaking news.

Talking about their relationship, she said, “Overall, we did have such an incredible relationship. It was just two people that wanted two different lives but were trying so hard to make it one.”

Nevertheless, she knew well that John Cena did not want to start a family after their marriage, and she felt the same way. She accepted his choice not to have children at first. Cena eventually changed his opinion and was willing to have children for her happiness. Regardless, Bella understood she couldn’t push Cena to do something he didn’t want to do.
