John Cena has a new girlfriend and the actor is now reacting to comparisons between her and ex-fiancee Nikki Bella, check out what he said during an interview on The Today Show.

“Thank you so much for asking that question, but I’ll keep that as your question and keep those details to myself,” John said while avoiding a question from Andy Cohen . He added, “I can say with great confidence I’m extremely happy.”

John was asked if he’ll become more open about his new relationship.

“Every experience in life is a chance for us to know who we are and who we’re not, and just because I went down one avenue in life doesn’t mean I’m going to repeat going down that avenue,” he said in response. “I think if there is a learning experience for me and a takeaway for me, it’s OK to be who you are and it’s OK to establish boundaries.”

“Just because a precedent was set doesn’t mean you need to follow that precedent, as long as you take ownership of who you are,” he added. “If you’ve done something before and it doesn’t really mesh with who you are, it’s OK to change. It’s OK to develop and grow, and that’s the journey of life.”
