After dominating Miz and Maryse in a mixed tag-team match, John Cena and Nikki Bella provided the sweetest moment of Sunday’s WrestleMania 33 in Orlando. Cena, who has been dating Bella since 2012, invited his real-life partner to the center of the ring and popped the question in front of 70,000 fans.
“I have been waiting so long to ask you this,” Cena said. “Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace, will you marry me?”
The answer was clearly yes.

Cena filed for divorce from his first wife in 2012 and had made comments over the years about his reluctance to enter into a second marriage with Bella or have children. Maryse, who has been married to Miz for three years, taunted Bella about not being engaged leading up to Sunday’s match, which led to speculation from fans that Cena might propose during the match.
Happy tears!!!! They always felt married to me but to see it…wow!!! Welcome to the family @JohnCena
