Nikki Bella is candidly opening up about her split from John Cena.

As you’ll recall, the pair was together for nearly six years, and many were shocked when they split. Now the Total Bellas star is ready to share more about the reason why it had to end — and why that was the best thing for everyone.

Speaking with Maria Menounos on her podcast Better Together, she divulged more about their difficult breakup, saying they ultimately called it quits over their differing opinions on starting a family:

“Overall, we did have such an incredible relationship, it was just two people that wanted two different lives. We were trying so hard to make it one.”

So sad to hear. Forcing things, especially a relationship, never works!!

Cena was vocal about not wanting children, while Bella was adamant about her desire to have them. Eventually, the Blockers actor agreed to have a vasectomy reversal in order to start a family with the WWE Diva, but she ultimately ended the relationship anyway in July 2018.

Looking back on her decision almost two years later, she explained to Maria that she didn’t want John to regret making choice he didn’t want:

“Even in the end when he was willing to give me kids, I could just tell, it’s not what we wanted. And that’s really, like, you know, what pushed me in the end, was like, if I’m going to force someone to be a father… what if he looks at you down the road and just regrets everything, and then you have this child and you’ve built this life. Is that what you want? And I remember thinking: it’s not what I want.”

We’re sure Nikki doesn’t regret the split, as she’s now expecting her first child with fiancé Artem Chigvintsev, who she first met in 2017 when they were partnered together on Dancing With The Stars.

The couple began dating in January 2019, a year later became engaged, and announced their first pregnancy. Nikki is about seven weeks away from popping, and is expected to deliver her baby just after her also-pregnant twin sister, Brie Bella.

Despite how excited we imagine she is to meet her child, it’s not without some struggles throughout pregnancy! The 36-year-old previously got real AF on Instagram, and revealed her unfiltered body changes:

“Time for that no filter post. Pregnancy has given me pigmentation on my cheeks and upper lip with a growing bump that makes me smile everyday. Quarantine has reminded me of the sparkles (grays) and wild eyebrows I have and the goals I have made throughout my life and want to focus more on. Oh and that I have an amazing chef as a fiancé! Who’s trying to make me gain a lot more pounds than my thighs that are already touching and rubbing would like.”

Not much longer to go, momma!!
