In 2012, when John Cena and Nikki Bella began dating, it caused quite a stir in the wrestling community.

Cena had just filed for divorce from his wife Elizabeth Huberdeau months earlier. Following his divorce, photos surfaced of Cena taking Nikki to her high-school reunion.

Shortly afterwards the couple went public with their relationship. Cena was one of WWE's top stars and Nikki was considered a leader in the women's division.

When the two started dating, they became wrestling's newest power couple.

They caused quite a media sensation with their red carpet appearances and broadcasting their relationship on "Total Divas" and "Total Bellas."

Thanks to the shows, viewers got a different glimpse of the pair's relationship.

One of the central storylines throughout the many seasons of "Total Divas" and "Total Bellas" was John and Nikki's different views about their future.

Nikki wanted to be a wife and mother one day. However, she was in for a shock when John said he wanted neither of those things.

As John explained, he'd already been married once and due to it not working out, he didn't want to go down that road again.

He also said that because his busy schedule keeps him on the road, he didn't want kids because he doesn't want to be an absent father.

Despite their different opinions, Nikki stayed with John, although the topics of marriage and children continued to pop up.

After some time, it seemed John was changing his mind and ready to give Nikki what she wanted.

Nikki's break up with Cena left fans devastated, and they wondered if the star would ever fulfill her dream of being a wife and mother.

Nikki would soon find happiness with her "Dancing with the Stars" partner Artem Chigvintsev. The pair began dating in January 2019 and it was evident the two were smitten with each other.

After nine months of dating, the two became engaged in November, but didn't reveal the happy news until January 2020.

A few weeks later, Nikki and Brie shared more exciting news when they announced they were both pregnant.

Throughout her pregnancy, Nikki kept fans updated about the baby. Artem made sure the mom-to-be was relaxed, and fixed her meals and gave her foot massages.

Yet, the topic of his ex continues to come up for Cena.

Upon hearing about the birth of Nikki's son, Cena was thrilled with the news. He knew how much being a mother was important to Nikki and he's happy she's finally realized her dream.

While the exes may no longer be in contact, it seems that there's no hard feelings between the two since John is happy for his ex-fiancee and her new family.
