Nikki Bella has emerged as one the most popular WWE Diva in the past two years dominating the Divas division. In the process, she had become the longest reigning Divas champion of all time, holding the title for record 301 days breaking AJ Lee’s previous record of 295 days.

 

She is celebrating her 31st birthday along with her twin lookalike sister Brie Bella. In honor of their birthday, we like to share 5 unknown facts about the gorgeous and present no.1 Diva in the WWE Divas division.

 

1-    It is known to everyone that Nikki and John Cena is the greatest power in the wrestling industry today. But before settling down with Cena, he used to date Dolph Ziggler. The two met in Florida Championship Wrestling and that relationship lasted for 2 years.

 

2-    Even before that Nikki was married when she was just 20 years old with her high school sweetheart. After 3 years, they both realized their mistake and bury the hatchet by calling it a quit. Even her family did not know the fact except Brie.

3-    Nikki used to play Soccer regularly on the Sereno Golden Eagles club team in midfield position but broke his legs in the process and landed up getting a WWE contract after that.

 

4-    Even though we have seen that Brie gives advice constantly to Nikki on Total Divas and pretends that she is the older one, actually the fact is that Nikki is 16 minutes older than Brie.

 

5-    Nikki is a Mexican-Italian by birth. Her father Jon Garcia is a Mexican whereas her mother Kathy Colace is an Italian. They had been brought up by their mother because her father left them at an early age. And presently her mother is engaged to WWE’s talent relationship manager John Laurinaitis.
