John Cena proposed to girlfriend Nikki Bella at WrestleMania 33. The proposal took place after the couple defeated The Miz and his wife Maryse during a tag team match.
Bella revealed the news on instagram, posting her happiness over the new status:
“I never thought I would use this emoji 💍❤ A dream come true! My Prince Charming has made me his Queen in a place we call home. I’ll never, ever forget this moment!” she wrote for the picture in the moment.
John and Nikki have been together for about five years, and the couple’s relationship has been documented on Total Divas and Total Bellas.
Back in April 2016 on an episode of Total Divas, Nikki wished John would propose to her.
“You guys, John finally told me on our three-year anniversary that marriage doesn’t bother him anymore, he wants to marry me, he wants to be married to me,” Nikki told her friends.
She then gushed, “I want him next to me my whole life. I can’t live without him.”
Brie Bella, who couldn’t make it to WrestleMania this year because she’s due to give birth, gushed her excitement for John to be part of the family on Twitter.
“Happy tears!!!! They always felt married to me but to see it…wow!!! Welcome to the family @JohnCena.”
Congratulations to the two on their impending union!
