Nikki Bella hopes she can "work it out" with John Cena.

The 'Total Divas' star praised her former partner for being "amazing" and she hopes they can get back together one day once she has "found" herself.

She told Entertainment Tonight: "John is such an amazing man. He really is the love of my life. I truly hope one day that we can work it out and get back together. I think there is hope ...

"I just want us both to live the rest of our lives happy. Hopefully that's together, maybe it's not. Right now I'm just focusing on me. I think I kind of lost me and now I want to find myself."

Nikki previously confessed she was "speechless" after John  admitted he still wants to marry her and start a family with her, just weeks after they split.
She shared: "I’m speechless. That’s crazy. I have hope ... I’m at a point in my life where I feel like I kind of lost me and I want to find me and work on me. I just want John and I both to live happily ever after whether it’s together or separate and I just don’t want us to go down the road in life and have regrets of like ‘I did this for you’ or ‘you did this for me,’ so I think it’s okay in relationships to take that moment."

John still has great hopes for the couple's future.

He said: "I still love Nicole, I still would love to marry Nicole, I still would love to have a family with Nicole. There was an unfortunate set of circumstances where our relationship ended. There's been a lot of speculation recently about me being seen in public, and everyone's been like, 'Oh John Cena's enjoying the single life.' No, I was supposed to be married and have a honeymoon over these two weeks. 

"I am in my house alone surrounded by these emotionally strong memories. And everyday from 6 to 9 I get out of the house and talk to strangers as social interaction. I don't want anybody else."
