While WWE fans everywhere weep at news of WWE power couple Nikki Bella (34) and John Cena's (40) break up, those with celeb crushes on Cena (or Bella) rejoice. However you might feel about this famous couple's split, you might find Bella's latest Instagram posts pretty interesting... and pretty achingly sad, as well.
Warning for those of you who might also be processing a painful break up at the moment because these posts will surely remind you of that sadness. Just a few days ago, Bella posted a beautiful photo of herself facing the ocean and standing on a large rock wearing a lovely chiffon dress in dark blue with her long dark brown hair flowing freely in the wind. Fans found the semi-cryptic poem that Bella chose to caption the photo intriguing. "For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), it's always our self we find in the sea." She followed the thoughtful words with a blue heart emoji.
The words are very fitting as the photo shows Bella staring out into the sea and though we can not see her face in the image, we imagine that she is looking contemplative, deep in thought, and very likely there's a touch of melancholy across her face as well. This month, April, would be a very sentimental time for both Bella and Cena.
Fitting for professional wrestlers, Cena proposed to Bella in the ring on April 2, 2017 at WrestleMania33 in front of a massive crowd and TV cameras. As fans went wild screaming and yelling, Cena dropped to one knee holding out a box from Tiffany & Co. with a huge diamond ring in a white gold setting and said, "I have been waiting so long to ask you this. Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace, will you marry me?"
Nikki blushed and nodded before rushing over to be wrapped into Cena's arms and covered his face with kisses.
After sharing six years of their lives together, most of it in the public spotlight, stress has taken its toll and the pair has called it quits. After being together for such a significant time, it is hard to just switch feelings off. On the same day as her other post, Bella shared an inspirational quote on Instagram. "Courage is the power to let go of the familiar," the quote said and she followed it with a yellow heart emoji.
Life with someone after six years would definitely be familiar. We wish both Bella and Cena courage, power, and healing through this difficult time.
