John Cena Proposes to Girlfriend at WrestleMania33
Looks like the John Cena, a pro wrestler and ’12 Rounds’ actor changed his mind when he said he’d never walk down the aisle again as he finally popped the question to long-time girlfriend Nikki Bella yesterday, April 2.
Back in 2013, the pro wrestler once said that he won’t remarry and have kids. But after winning a match vs The Miz and Maryse on Sunday, John Cena got down to his knees and proposed to Bella.
“I have been waiting so long to ask you this,” said Cena and then asked his girlfriend to marry him. Bella simply shook her head in excitement and rushed to kiss Cena who was still on his knees. A huge audience of 75,000 applauded their approval.
Like Cena, 33-year-old Nikki Bella or Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace is also a professional wrestler, model, and actress. She started her contract with WWE in June 2007 with her twin sister Brie Bella; forming the The Bella Twins brand.
The proposal may have surprised the unexpecting Bella, but the 39-year-old Cena already have hinted on social media of his proposal plans. In an interview with E! News, Cena admitted that he has been planning to propose to his girlfriend for a long time. He recalled that Bella has always been by his side through several surgeries and that she never left him. And when the tables have turned and Bella was the one to be put on an operation, Cena already told his girlfriend that he would marry her. This happened years before his actual proposal.
“When I wheeled her into the operating room, I stopped and asked her if she can hear me. She said yes. And then I asked her, ‘You know someday I’m going to marry you?’” Cena recalled.
Both Cena and Bella were once married to their high school sweethearts and both are now divorced from their first marriage.
Bella took to Instagram about the engagement and said that the proposal was a dream come true.
