ET caught up with the pro wrestler and actor at the premiere of The Wall in New York City on Thursday night, and his new fiancee, Nikki Bella, was by his side. Recalling what it was like to propose Bella in the WWE ring, Cena quipped, "I guess it can be summed up by just saying I had the balls to do it."
The 40-year-old star revealed he's a hopeless romantic when talking about his upcoming nuptials. "I just wanna make sure that it's a it's a good day," he noted. "We've made our lives very public and I think the world knows that it's been a lot to just get to that proposal moment. I want [Nikki] to be as happy as she was at that moment."
"I had to retell her things that I told her on that day because she was so happy. She couldn't process it all," Cena added. "As long as we have that happiness on that day, I think I'm good."
Earlier this month, ET's Jennifer Peros was with Bella, 33, at the Romona Keveza bridal show in New York City, and the Total Divas star shared her vision for the couple's big day. "I want like, [a] medium [wedding]. I envision, like, a 150 people, 'cause I still want to keep it very private and intimate, and my side of the family makes it like 150," she shared. "I want black tie. I just love the elegance of black tie, and depending on what season we get married, [there] will be, like, florals. Like, I'm going to have a lot of florals, so I don't know how much they'll cost, but I hear they cost a lot. But I don't care. I want it to be drenched with flowers."
