Who are Nikki Bella parents?
Jon Garcia (father)
Date of birth: 1964
Nikki has uneasy relationships with her father. She didn’t talk to him every day. As Mr. Garcia’s aunt used to tell in her interview, the ex-wrestler and her twin sister are offended by the fact that their father has another family in Mexico. He has a wife, a son and a daughter in that country. That’s why Nikki and Brie didn’t invite him as their family member into the series “Total Bellas”. But the man eagerly watches his daughters’ show on E! channel.
Jonathan Edward Garcia was born in 1964. He graduated from Central Union High School in 1982. Previously he earned his living as a farm manager in Arizona. Now he works as Construction Site Supervisor in El Centro, CA.
He shares his time between California, where he works, and Mexico, where his wife Ana and their kids, Alexia and Ezequiel, live. He hopes to take his family to the USA after the necessary papers would have been prepared. On January 31, 2020, his wife Ana and he celebrated the 15th wedding anniversary.
Kathy Colace-Laurinaitis (mother)
Date of birth: October 19, 1964
Nicki’s fans know a lot about her family, because she demonstrated her mother, stepfather, twin sister and brother in the reality series “Total Bellas”, which premiered on E! in 2016 and is popular till now. In April 2020 the show will return for the fifth season.
The stylish elegant blond lady looks like the third Bella sister, but she is the mother of the famous female wrestlers. Her birth name is Kathy Colace, she was also known under the name Kathy Garcia (then she was married to Nicki’s father) and since 2016 her surname is Laurinaitis (after her second husband John Laurinaitis).
She was born in Los Angeles in the family of Joseph John Colace and his wife Alice Mary Dessert. From her father’s side, Kathy has Italian roots. Mr. Collace (Nicki’s grandfather) was a producer, who owned the company “Colace Bros”.
Kathy is an entrepreneur. She started her career in her father’s company, and after 18 years there, she moved on to start her own business. Mrs. Laurinaitis runs a recruiting company.
Her business ambitions didn’t prevent the woman from building her own family. She married Jon Garcia many years ago, and the couple parented three kids. She divorced from Jon after she knew about his infidelity. Many years later she met another man, John Laurinaitis, the ex-wrestler, known under the name Johnny Ace. They fell in love, got engaged and then got married.

In June 2019 Nikki Bella announced her retirement. During many years in professional wrestling, Nikki ruined her health, and that became the main reason for her retirement – doctors found a cyst in her brain.
Nikki was born in San Diego, CA, but most of her childhood she spent at a farm in Scottsdale, AR. She was very athletic in her early years and played for the soccer team at Grossmont College. Nikki dreamed about a career of a soccer star, but she hurt her leg and had to forget about that aim.
After graduation from college, she moved with her twin sister Brianna Monique Garcia (professionally known as Brie Bella) to Los Angeles. There they started to work as models and then gradually moved their ways on television. The twins, who differed from many other young entertainers with their hot looks and ideal athletic bodies, debuted on a reality show “Fox Meet My Folks” and in 2006 participated in the contest “International Body Doubles twins search”. After that, they featured on “Diva Search”, the contest, arranged by WWE. Although they didn’t win the competitions, they were noticed by WWE managers and signed in 2007.
During many years they starred on the ring. The sisters took part in mixed fights and invented the special fighting style when quietly switched places during the bout.
In 2019 Nikki decided to retire.
