Moving On! Nikki Bella and John Cena Have Come a Long Way Since Calling It Quits

Exes John Cena and Nikki Bella‘s lives turned upside down after they split up in April 2018 — just weeks before they were supposed to get married.

The couple, who were together for a total of six years, reconciled after calling off their engagement but they broke up for good in July of that year. Since then, both Nikki and John have moved on. The Total Bellas star is now engaged to Dancing With the Stars alum Artem Chigvintsev and they’re expecting their first child — a baby boy, who is due to arrive in August 2020.

These days, the soon-to-be mom is all about her bundle of joy and fiancé. “I can’t even begin to describe to all of you how happy I am!” Nikki announced on Instagram in January 2020. “I’M GOING TO BE A MOM!! It’s something I have wanted to be my whole life.” She also gushed over Artem and said she believes he is going to make a great dad.

On the other hand, John is dating Shay Shariatzadeh, whom he seems very happy with. “Shay isn’t after his money … She’s not that kind of girl and loves him for who he is,” a source exclusively told Life & Style, adding she brings out his “softer side.”

Like Nikki and Artem, Shay and John’s relationship seems to be going strong. The pair even sparked engagement rumors when she was spotted out wearing a ring on ~that~ finger in February 2020.

Despite not being together, Nikki still wishes John the best in his new relationship. “He’s one of the people, who’s made me an amazing person,” Nikki shared on her “The Bellas Podcast” in April 2019. “But because of how sad and how much I hurt him, when I saw the big smile on his face, I felt happy for him. I am very happy for him. As long as John is happy, I’m happy. But let me tell you, she breaks his heart? Wow. I will rack attack her in a heartbeat. I’m still protective of that man.”

Thankfully, everyone seems happy!
