In December 2017, Us Weekly sat down with Nikki Bella for an interview. The 34-year-old acknowledged there was some tension in her relationship with John Cena. She said, "John doesn’t want to have kids, so it’s taken a lot of therapy to be OK with knowing I won’t be a mom." She went on to say, "There are times when I still pray that one day he’ll change his mind. But as of now, no family.” The couple revealed on Sunday, April 15, that after six years together they were ending their engagement.
