John Cena and girlfriend Shay Shariatzadeh secretly tied the knot on Mon., Oct. 12.
The couple, who started dating in 2019 after Cena’s headline-grabbing split with Nikki Bella, had a private ceremony in Tampa.
It’s the second marriage for the 43 year old WWE legend, and the first for his 31 year old Canadian bride. Shariatzadeh hails from Vancouver; the tech exec met Cena while he was in British Columbia filming Playing With Fire.
It was at that film’s premiere that Cena & Shariatzadeh first went public with their relationship. At the time, he said:
“What’s truly special about this one is that, no matter what projects I’m involved in the future, this one will always have a special meaning because I got to film a special project and meet someone special.”
The world first guessed at their engagement via a Hollywood premiere, too. The Iranian-born bride-to-be’s engagement ring was first spotted on the red carpet for Doolittle earlier this year.
