The 41-year-old Blockers actor and the 34-year-old Total Bellas star took to social media on Saturday to share posts on what would have been the day they tied the knot. The couple announced their split on April 15, almost a year after they got engaged on live television at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, Florida. They had been together for six years.
"There's no other way to say [it]," the WWE star said. "I love Nicole with all my heart, and that's that."
According to an ET source, the root of their relationship trouble was their conflicting views on starting a family.
"Nikki and John truly love each other, but they will never have the same view on a perfect future," the source claimed. "Nikki has always dreamed of having a family of her own and John does not want children and that was the main cause of their breakup. They are both dedicated to their careers, but Nikki wants more than just that."
