John Cena, Nikki Bella Divorce: 'Total Bellas' Star Finally Moved On From Former Husband
Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace aka Nikki Bella has been in the wrestling industry for 12 years with her twin sister Brie Bella, as they are famously known as The Bella Twins. Ranked No. 1 of the top 50 female wrestlers in the PWI Female 50 in 2015, Rolling Stone's Diva of the Year in 2015, Teen Choice Awardee with her twin sister as Choice Female Athlete in 2016 and two-time WWE Divas Championship are among her prized accomplishments. But when John Cena came to her life in 2012, she already has a plan in mind, and that is to start a family with him.
Nikki Bella and John Cena had a six-year relationship with different and opposing views on family life. It was already known by the professional wrestler that there are already issues since the early years of their relationship. However, Nikki Bella and John Cena just can't get enough of each other that even though the latter would voice out his views on marriage and child raising. When the Bumblebee star popped the question to Nikki Bella in April 2017, she thought that the wrestler/rapper had a change of heart in terms of his previous mindset.
On July 2018, after two months of juggling in and out of the engagement, Nikki Bella finally ended her relationship with John Cena, for good. With less than a year from the tumultuous ending, Nikki Bella is already starting a new chapter of her love life with her Dancing With The Stars partner, Artem Chigvintsev. Looking back on their stint in the Season 25 of the American dance competition television series, the duo were paired together on DWTS' in 2017 and were eliminated sixth from the competition, and at that time, Nikki Bella was still in a relationship with John Cena. They had good chemistry, and they gave an almost perfect performance on the show.
But it was a happy surprise for Nikki Bella, her family and most especially to her fans who have followed through her journey and struggles to have the dream she wanted in her life, which is to have a family of her own. The news came the same day that Total Bellas dropped its season four trailer, which features Nikki Bella having dinner with Chigvintsev and getting on the back of his motorcycle. Since her split with John Cena, the Drop the Mic guest star has been trying out her luck at love, as she also joined a dating show on TV, and had a date with former Bachelorette contestant Peter Kraus.
Artem Chigvintsev is just one lucky guy as Nikki Bella has given more time with him these past few days. Just recently, Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev had a lunch date at Joan's on Third in Los Angeles; they looked to be getting happier each day. The good news is that Nikki Bella's family and even her twin sister approves of her relationship with the dancer as an insider tells that they "knew him before and really like him."
