Fans have watched John Cena and Nikki Bella's romance unfold on E!'s reality shows Total Divas and Total Bellas - and they were also supposed to see the pro wrestlers tie the knot.

"Nikki thought at one point she could get past wanting children and that her love for John was enough, but as time went on, she has realized her dreams of a family would never happen with John", the source continues. You don't just run off and get married and not tell your family for 10 years.

Some can not just believe about the breakup especially since it comes not long after Bella gushed about an animated recreation of Cena's proposal to her during WrestleMania 33.

Cena look shocked but kept the conversation moving.

On Sunday before the breakup news was announced, the WWE star shared a Walt Whitman quote with his social media followers that read, "Keep your face always toward the sunshine-and shadows will fall behind you".

And then just days later she posted a three sentence statement announcing she and Cena had called off the wedding and split.

Finally, Nikki finally got the courage to break the news to her beau herself.

It was disgusting getting injured but I am more rested, that's the upside. "Of course, doubts exist and I feel them too sometimes", he said.

Interestingly, it was what was written in the contract that turned Nikki off the most. I never knew I could be SO happy!

The actor appeared on Hit 105's Stav, Abby and Matt radio show and was quizzed about whether his bride-to-be Nikki Bella might head down the aisle to some sweet Bangtan Boys. "But you can't live your life according to a possible worst-case-scenario".

"I just don't understand it. One hundred percent", she told PEOPLE shortly after the couple's engagement. "It kind of makes me second-guess where John and I stand in our relationship".

Actually, sorta. According to TMZ, the couple didn't have a ton of time together, even after their Wrestlemania Engagement just past year.

"John acted more and more like he was doing her a favor by somehow conceding to go ahead and marry her", the source said.

The professional wrestlers were set to Wednesday during an intimate ceremony in Mexico on May 5.

An insider previously told PEOPLE Nikki was the one who finally ended the relationship. "She's a phenomenal, tremendous woman", the source said.
