Nikki Bella shocked fans when she revealed that she is pregnant with Artem Chigvintsev’s baby. The couple has been engaged since November and by all accounts, is doing very well. Of course, some fans may wonder what Nikki’s ex-boyfriend, WWE wrestler John Cena, thinks about her pregnancy. According to a report from Hollywood Life, he is “very happy” for his ex and her fiance.
“John is very happy for Nikki and Artem,” said a source close to the WWE superstar. “He loves that she has gotten to a place in her relationship where this is all happening for her.”
The two WWE superstars began dating in 2012. Much of their relationship was chronicled on the reality show Total Bellas, where Nikki was open about her desire to be married and have kids. In 2017, John proposed to Nikki in the ring at WrestleMania 33. She accepted the proposal and things seemed to be great until they announced their split the following year. They reportedly briefly rekindled their romance before splitting for good in July 2018. In March 2019, Nikki confirmed her relationship with her former Dancing With the Stars partner Chigvintsev.
Nikki isn’t the only one who is pregnant, though. Her twin sister, Brie Bella, is expecting her second child and the sisters’ due dates are only a week and a half apart. The source told Hollywood Life that John is also happy for Brie and her husband, Daniel Bryan, with whom he is “great friends.”
“He feels like everything happened the way it was supposed to,” they continued, stressing that John has since moved on with his life. “They both have the life they wanted. He is very happy that she is happy, it’s a beautiful moment for her and he is excited for her and everyone.”
“He wishes nothing but the best for Nikki,” said a second source who spoke to Hollywood Life. “Despite everything that happened between them in the past, he understands they wanted different things and chose different paths in life.”
This will be the first child for Nikki Bella, who has been open about her desire to be a mother one day. Her sister Brie Bella is already a mother to her 2-year-old daughter Birdie, whom she welcomed with her husband back in May 2017. The 36-year-old sisters are set to welcome their kids later this year. They have not yet revealed their actual due dates so fans will have to keep up with them on social media for more baby updates.
