WWE Star Nikki Bella initially cancelled her wedding to her wrestler fiance John Cena because of his reluctance to have children.
But Nikki Bella, 34, who finally broke off her engagement to John Cena, 41, last month, has insisted that now she’s the one who’s unsure about whether to start a family, in an interview with Page Six on Saturday.
‘Here I was dying to be a mom. Now I want to push it back,’ said the reality TV star.
The WWE champion has even suggested she might push reproduction back to her next decade.
‘Can my clock tick until my 40s?’
She also refuted suggestions that the breakup was staged for the sake of her reality TV series Total Bellas, which has chronicled her relationship woes with the Blockers star.
‘I would never fake a break-up,’ said Nikki in the interview.
‘And when people keep questioning it, it actually makes your heart ache even more.’
Nikki told People last month that she and John are done for good amid recent efforts to salvage their relationship after calling off their wedding earlier this year.
‘After much time and soul-searching alone and together, we have decided to officially part ways,’ the Total Bellas star, whose full name is Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace, told the magazine.
‘After I called off the engagement, we tried to work on our relationship to get back to where it was, and in order to move forward with our wedding.’
The Tampa, Florida native didn’t seem too filled with regret in her statement, saying she had ‘a beautiful and loving six-year relationship with a wonderful man’ in the the 16-time WWE champion.
‘I have the utmost respect for John,’ she added, ‘but I know this is what’s best for me.’
The duo – who often clashed over whether or not to have children – got engaged in April of 2017 at Florida’s Orlando Citrus Bowl during WrestleMania 33, but called off their pending nuptials three months back.
