They're engaged! During last night's WrestleMania 33, John Cena proposed to longtime girlfriend Nikki Bella. Cena popped the question just after he and his fiancée defeated The Miz and his wife Maryse in a mixed tag-team match. Of course, the sparkler, which features a ginormous circle-shaped diamond set on a band, is quite a stunner.
The proposal was totally unexpected. Following the match, John Cena grabbed the microphone as he and Bella stood in the middle of the ring. “This is what you wanted over a year ago," he began. "You broke your neck and did everything you could to come back because you wanted a WrestleMania moment. I’m so very proud of you."
“Right before your surgery, there would be a time when you would be a little loopy and I could ask you anything I wanted. If you gave me an honest answer, you wouldn’t remember what you said. After a year and half, you asked me all the time. I promised I would tell you when the time is right. The time is right."
“You were kinda glassy, in and out," Cena continued. "At the last moment, I said, ‘Can you hear me?’ You said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘I only have one question.’ You said, ‘What is it?’ 'Do you know one day I’m going to marry you?' And you said, ‘Yes.’ I just need you to say yes one more time. I have been waiting so long to ask you this, ‘Will you marry me?”
A tearful Bella nodded just before he placed the ring on her finger. Before heading up the ramp backstage, the couple hugged family members in the front row.
This moment has been a long time coming for both Cena and Bella. The couple has been dating since 2012, but Cena frequently voiced his reluctance to get married and have children, which has also served as subject in Bella's reality show Total Divas and Total Bellas.
