A little over a month after calling off their engagement and breaking up, John Cena and Nikki Bella are reportedly on the verge of rekindling their relationship.

According to Jodi Guglielmi of People, a source close to the situation said Cena and Bella are "basically back to together."

The source added: "This was never really about ending their relationship—it was about calling off a wedding because something didn't feel right. It was a wedding that was entered into under false pretenses. She was pretending she was OK with not having a kid; he was pretending he absolutely couldn't and wouldn't budge on that point."

Cena appeared on the Today show last week and said he both wanted to marry Bella and have children with her:

Cena proposed to Bella last year at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, Florida, despite previously being steadfast in his assertion that he never wanted to get married again.

Their wedding was scheduled for May 5 before it was called off.    

The new season of the E! reality show Total Bellas, which debuted Sunday, will feature the events that led to the breakup.
