He sat down with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on Monday’s Today to share a major update regarding his feelings towards her only weeks after the couple split back in April. They were set to get married on May 5.
“It’s up and it’s down. I’ve always been honest with you guys. I also don’t want to ruin the viewers’ morning by giving them a bowl of sadness soup. It’s been up and it’s been down,” he said. “It’s been incredibly reflective, which is amazing, but it’s very difficult. I had my heart broken out of nowhere — well, for me it was out of nowhere. And anyone who has experienced that knows that it comes with a series of bad feelings. But I’ve looked at myself every day and I’ve tried to evaluate myself and the woman that I love.”
He then got super real regarding his feelings towards Nikki, which included how he does want to have a family with her contrary to reports that the split was because he didn’t have an interest in that.
“For anyone speculating on what I’m doing with my life right now: I still love Nicole. I still would love to marry Nicole. I still would love to have a family with Nicole,” he explained. “There was an unfortunate set of circumstances that resulted in our relationship ending. There’s been a lot of speculation recently about me being seen in public, and everyone’s been like, ‘Oh John Cena’s enjoying the single life.' No, I was supposed to be married and have a honeymoon over these two weeks. I am in my house alone surrounded by these emotionally strong memories. And everyday from 6 to 9 I get out of the house and talk to strangers as social interactions.”
“I don’t want anybody else,” he added. “I love Nicole and I’m really trying to support her in trying to find whatever it is she wants that made this fall apart in the first place.”
Nikki recently shared a video on her YouTube page where she told her fans that she's seen their messages of “love and support” after their split. “Can’t tell you how much it meant to me, especially through a really difficult time,” she said. So will these two reunite sooner than later given his incredibly heartfelt words for her?
