John Cena and Nikki Bella could not keep their hands to themselves during the 25th ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.
According to Entertainment Online, the two wrestling superstars shared a passionate kiss on the red carpet with John Cena reaching behind to grab the posterior of his fiancé.
Cena, a 16-Time World Champion proposed to his girlfriend of five years at WrestleMania 33 back in April in front of 75,000 fans. The 39-year-old at the time had presented a dazzling diamond-studded $85,000 engagement ring to Bella who had no idea that her boyfriend would propose.
The Trainwreck actor had gone down on bended knee and asked Bella whose real name is Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace if she would marry him. The Total Divas star at a loss of words had nodded a yes, which prompted Cena to place the sparkler on her left ring finger.
The six-foot-one actor had immediately proposed to his girlfriend after the duo defeated married couple, The Miz and Maryse in a tag team match at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, Florida. John Cena had revealed that his mother was in the audience for the very first time to see him fight and had no inkling he was going to propose to Nikki.
Cena had vowed never to get married again after he split from ex-wife, Elizabeth Huberdeau in 2012. The wrestling superstar would later say he had to change his mind because he found an exceptional person who changed his perspective.
“I found the absolute right person. I found a strong person I consider an inspiration, an equal, somebody who when I’m feeling down picks me up. It took a person that strong to change my view on life.”
The one-half of the Bella Twins waltzed on the ESPYs 2017 red carpet decked in a white crop top and breezy black trousers. Her toned torso was on full display. Bella made sure that the paparazzi cameras caught the waistband of her underwear lingerie line, Birdiebee which she recently launched.
The 33-year-old wore down her jet black locks which deftly complimented the light make-up on her face. Cena was by his fiancé’s side in one of his signature suits wearing brown shoes, dotted with a pink tie.
The ESPY Awards is a yearly event held by American sports giant ESPN. The esteemed event recognizes individual and collective sporting achievements as well as other sports-affiliated performances.
The event was hosted by iconic NFL Quarterback Peyton Manning who poked fun at an unimpressed Kevin Durant in his opening monologue. In a story by US Magazine, the former Broncos quarterback mocked the NBA star, pointing out, women athletes were so dominate during the summer Olympics that Kevin Durant wanted to play for them next year.
Former first lady, Michelle Obama graced the event and posthumously honored Special Olympics founder, Eunice Kennedy Shriver by presenting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Shriver’s son, Timothy.
