Cena and Bella shocked the WWE Universe and the world of showbiz when they ended their engagement last month after six years of dating.
The Champ told Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on Today’s fourth hour on Monday that he still wants to marry the ex-Divas Champion and have kids with her.
When asked if she would have preferred for the 16-time world champion to call her, Bella told PEOPLE Now: “Of course.
“The Today show is home for him,. He’s very close to Kathie Lee and Hoda … you get into an environment you’re comfortable with and you just start talking and then you’re like, ‘Oh wait, I was on live TV.’
“The thing is, we’re best friends. We’re still in communication, but I haven’t brought it up.”
The WWE superstars got engaged last year at WrestleMania 33 after beating The Miz and Maryse in a Mixed Tag Team Match.
Cena stated that he had his heart broken out of nowhere.
He said: “It’s been incredibly reflective, which is amazing, but it’s very difficult. I had my heart broken out of nowhere… or for me it was out of nowhere. Anyone who has experienced that knows it comes with a series of bad feelings.
“I still love Nicole, I would love to marry Nicole, I still would love to have a family with Nicole. It was an unfortunate set of circumstances where our relationship ended.
“I love her. I want to be with her. I want to make her my wife. I want to be the father of her children. I just want us to work.”
Their breakup will be depicted in the new season of Total Bellas.
