The news of Nikki Bella being engaged to Artem Chigvintsev, a professional dancer, broke last week.
Since that time, some fans have wondered how John Cena is feeling about the latest big move in their relationship. It turns out that he’s reportedly happy about it and for his former fiancee.
This is according to HollywoodLife, which recently released a report about the situation from a well-placed source.
“He is very happy that she has found someone that treats her so amazingly well,” a source told HollywoodLife. “Nikki was an extremely important part of John’s life so it does remind him of what they had and he is also reminded of his proposal to her at Wrestlemania a few years ago but he also has thought that they have both grown from their relationship and they both have moved on.”
The couple announced their separation in 2018 after dating since 2012 and being engaged for a year.
Cena and Bella teamed up together for the first time back at WrestleMania 33 in 2017 where they defeated The Miz and Maryse. They were scheduled to get married on May 5, 2018, before separating.
The two have since started seeing other people. Nikki met Artem Chigvintsev on Dancing with the Stars while Cena has been linked to Shay Shariatzadeh.
“John and Nikki are on great terms, he wants nothing but the best for her,” another insider adds. “And it’s not a big shock or anything, John knows how happy she is with Artem and how much she wants to settle down so he was expecting this sooner or later. He will always cherish his memories with Nikki but he’s moved on too. John’s very happy with his girlfriend Shay so that makes it easier to accept Nikki moving on.”
There’s still no word yet on when the wedding will take place.
