Nikki Bella's Beloved Frenchie Winston May Have Contributed to Her Breakup With John Cena

The couple had disagreements over the Total Bellas star's beloved pooch — which could have indicated that the writing has been on the wall for some time. 

If there's a silver lining to the breakup of Nikki Bella and John Cena — who were set to get hitched on May 5 — it's that Bella can once again entertain her dreams of becoming a mom. And, just maybe, she can resume caring for her beloved Frenchie, Winston. 

In case you missed the saga of the couple's dog ownership on Total Bellas, here's what went down: Bella wanted a baby; Cena adamantly did not. In fact, the Blockers actor once told Rolling Stone: "I know I cannot handle raising a child. It’s like with the [Nikki's] dog [Winston]. My biggest thing to Nicole about the dog was: [I] love dogs, but I can’t contribute to taking care of one. I don’t have the time." 

Eventually, Nikki — who also has a packed schedule — handed the dog over to her sister Brie to care for. But, she still missed her beloved pooch. On a 2017 episode of her E! show, she said: "I miss [Winston.] I think with John being gone, too, so much, I’m just back to being alone again. It’s just tough, because for a while, Winston filled that void so much. I just will always look at him as like my firstborn.” 

But, now that Cena and Bella have parted ways (sniff), perhaps the dog-lover can resume caring for her pup. After all, as shown on Winston's social-media feeds, he is pretty tough to resist. Just check out this face:

And over on Twitter, the dog shows his sweet side with nostalgic posts from his puppy-hood. 

We're sure that if anyone can help mom cope with a sad breakup, it's Winston!
