Total… reunion? Weeks after calling off their engagement, superstar WWE couple Nikki Bella and John Cena are reportedly back together again.

A rep for Bella released a statement to E! News on Thursday, May 31, saying: “Nikki Bella and John Cena are working on their relationship and taking it day by day. They appreciate all of their fans and their continued support.”

A source, meanwhile, told People that the couple was “basically back together” and in constant communication–with the exception of what was supposed to be their wedding weekend.

During their hiatus, both parties expressed their emotional distress—with Bella opening up to her twin sister, Brie Bella, about the split on their show.

Cena, meanwhile, went on the Today show to share his thoughts with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. “I love her, I want to be with her, I want to make her my wife,” he said on May 14. “I want to be the father of her children. I just want us to work.” (A big portion of their split was centered on their disagreement over having kids.)

The couple started dating in 2012 and got engaged at WrestleMania before a live audience. The moment went viral and Bella subsequently opened up to The Knot (on several occasions) about planning her nuptials and more.

“I want us to have the few weeks before [the wedding] off and a few weeks after to be in wedding bliss,” she told us last September. “I can be married forever, so I just want a long engagement. I just want to be a fiancee.”
