”You almost wish it was bad, because it’s so much easier to walk away,”

“It’s so much harder to walk away when it’s loving.”

She continued:

“I think a lot of women get into this situation when it’s like, ‘I love this person, but I don’t know if it’s right for my life,’ and that’s a hard thing.”

I just knew that I didn’t want to bring a child into a relationship that I didn’t know if this life was right for them and I went with it, and then Artem came waltzing into my life,”

After failing to save their relationship, Cena and Bella decided to go separate ways for good in July 2018.

Shortly after the breakup, Nikki reconciled with Artem Chigvintsev, a Russian dancer. The couple made their relationship public in July 2019, a year after her split from John.

Artem popped the question in November 2019 and share a son who was born in July 2020.

The reality star is not in a hurry to tie the knot with Chigvintsev. One of the reasons for it is that the couple is too busy raising their child for now and is busy building their home.

She concluded:

“Life is really stressful. We’re barely home together at the same time. There’s a lot more, I don’t want to say important things in life, but a lot more [to focus on].”
