"We are best friends and, right now, we're both giving each other time separately and maybe there's hope that we reunite in the future". I definitely do [think we will get married].
Despite their split, the 16-time world champion insists that he still wants to marry Bella and have kids with her.
The Dancing with the Stars alum confirmed in her interview this week that she and Cena have stayed in contact since ending their six-year relationship.

'I can be that leader and that face for them to give them that bravery and that courage'.

"Having kids and a family is extremely important for Nikki, and she is concerned that John is only saying he wants to have kids to get her back". John's my brother, I text him all the time. "I can't wait to see how this all ends".
"I love her, I want to be with her, I want to make her my wife, I want to be the father of her children, I just want us to work", he said.
