Cape Town - It seems Nikki Bella (35) is determined to keep things friendly with her ex John Cena (41).

In an interview with People magazine the WWE wrestler said that while she’s trying to move on with her life, she still calls her ex-fiancé after every date she goes on in an effort to keep things open between them. 

“I let him know everything. He’s known every date I’ve been on,” she said.

“I have so much respect for him and this breakup wasn’t bad, it didn’t end bad, we didn’t do bad things to each other. He’s still close with my family,” she adds.

The Total Divas star said she’s always been able to turn to the Bumblebee star no matter what was happening in her life and wouldn’t want their breakup to change that.

She adds that she prefers to tell the wrestler-turned-actor about any guy she meets rather than have him find out about it through the media, Cosmopolitan reports.

“Anything I knew was coming out or anything that I’ve done I’ve let him know. I don’t ever want him to be hurt by it or shocked by it,” she said.

The pair broke up last year in April after being engaged for a year.

“I had a beautiful and loving six-year relationship with a wonderful man. I have the utmost respect for John, but I know this is what’s best for me,” she concluded.
