How many people have you totally let into your life? For many out there the number is 0. We have all been betrayed, it hurts, but if you’re brave enough to continue to try and let people in, when someone does connect with you. They will know and love you for who you really are.— John Cena (@JohnCena) January 4, 2020
On January 3, 2020, both Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev took to Instagram and revealed their engagement news to their fans.
