The couple - who announced earlier this year that they are going their separate ways, just weeks before they got engaged - are trying to work on both theirselves and their relationship in the hope they may get back together.

She said: "Right now, we're just friends. We're working on each other and trying to work on us, and we talk every day. He is not only my best friend, but he truly is one of the best people I have ever met, and he has patience with me and he has really taught me a lot over the last few months, and I think one of those things is an inner strength that I thought I had, but didn't realise how strong I had it."

And the 34-year-old professional wrestler thinks it is good that they are apart at the moment because it gives them time to see what they "really want".

Speaking in the vlog she shares with her sister Brie, she added: "It's giving us this time in life to see what we really want for the future. I know for some people, because of the media or what they read on social media, they look at this as a very negative thing, but ... I don't want to be someone who gets a divorce, or who has kids and gets a divorce. I truly want to walk down that aisle, I want to give my vows and I want this to be one time.

"I'm beyond grateful that I have this amazing man, who is staying by my side and helping me fight through those issues and helping me become just an even better person, and even stronger."
