John Cena revealed he isn’t just muscle and punches as he let his affectionate side take over while gushing over his girlfriend, Nikki Bella.
In an exclusive interview with US Weekly, the 39-year-old described his four-year relationship with the 32-year-old Total Divas star as “extremely special” while mentioning the extra effort exerted in making their relationship work, especially, as they are both in the spotlight.
Cena added that his woman was unperturbed by the myriad of female fans who threw themselves at him.
“She’s truly the love of my life, and she deserves to be treated as such. Because we’re in the same industry, she truly understands that there will be fans that are looking for a different sort of admiration, but it takes two to be disrespectful, and I would like to think that in most every encounter, I try to treat her with as much respect as I can. And I’m not perfect.”
He continued, “I eff up a lot, but that always goes through my head, to try to treat her with respect.”
