John Cena is celebrating a career high and a personal low at the moment. As an actor, having recently appeared in a string of runaway hits like Trainwreck, Ferdinand, and Blockers, so he's on the top of his game. But Cena has also suffered serious heartbreak, as his long-term relationship to fellow wrestler Nikki Bella fizzled out earlier this year, shortly before the engaged couple was set to be married. It has been hard on the usually high-energy performer, and John Cena hasn't been shy about the struggle he's enduring during this difficult moment in his life. And the wear and tear of their high-profile relationship is documented in the newest season of E!'s reality TV series Total Bellas. In this week's episode, for instance, John Cena says he would get surgery to allow his fiancee to have children.
In the latest episode of the reality TV series, John Cena and Nikki Bella have an intimate conversation -- caught on camera -- where Cena says he would do whatever it takes to have children, as he knows that building a strong relationship relies on "sacrifice," and claims he was willing to make that sacrifice for Nikki Bella and the sake of their relationship. When Nikki Bella implied there was a physical reason why he couldn't have children at this time, John Cena responded by saying the following:
The episode, filmed before John Cena and Nikki Bella called off their engagement, continues to suggest Cena was the one who wanted to make it work, whereas Bella ultimately pulled away. The couple has dealt with their fair share of controversy from fans claiming the break-up is simply a media ploy to attract viewers to the newest season of Total Bellas. Nikki Bella, in particular, has dismissed these comments, saying the whole ordeal is "really, really tough" and that anyone claiming that her heartache is fake is making things much harder on the recently-single reality TV personality.
During his own interview on Today, John Cena opened up his heart about the whole break-up, unafraid to get honest about his current state in the situation. While he has had a difficult time handling the outcome of his relationship to Nikki Bella, he admits that he still wants to be friends with his former partner, and Bella claimed on her social media feed that she and John Cena remain friendly at this time. The wrestlers were engaged at Wrestlemania 33 last year, when John Cena got down on one knee during the main event and proposed on the world stage. He was hoping it would lead to a happy ending, but it's evident that there are still difficulties to be found between the two performers. Once more details are known about the couple and their relationship, we'll keep you posted right here at CinemaBlend.
