Nikki Bella and John Cena have both expressed a hope to get back together, but what will it take for that to happen?

"Time. It's going to take time," Nikki told ET at the Total Bellas junket in New York City on Wednesday (May 16). "So, honestly, only time can tell."

"John and I, we absolutely love each other and we care about each other a lot," she continued. "We are best friends and, right now, we're both giving each other time separately and maybe there's hope that we reunite in the future."

After their shocking split last month, Cena opened up about a possible reconciliation on Kathy Lee and Hoda.

“I love her. I want to be with her. I want to make her my wife. I want to be the father of her children. I just want us to work," he said.

"I was speechless at first and then I felt emotional and very happy," Bella said of her reaction to his interview. "The one thing I have to give John is, even though he's this top celebrity, he's this amazing superstar, he—when it comes to real life—he doesn't feel like he has to put up a front. Like, this is how he really feels and he's gonna tell you, and I think that's what's made him so amazing, being the face of the WWE and everything he does for charity."

"He has a really big heart and he wears it on his sleeve, and I do, as well. And I think that's what makes us great reality stars, but that, what he did takes courage, especially, I think, for a man," she added. "I give him a lot of credit for that."

Total Bellas, Nikki's reality show with her sister, Brie, is gearing up for a new season and shared a new video teaser on (Wednesday) that focuses on the tumultuous period leading up to the WWE stars' break up.

"This season, you're gonna see it completely unfold. You're going to see wedding planning, which is awesome, but you'll see the ups and downs of that and then you'll see what got us to where we're at today," Bella explained.
