John Cena and girlfriend Shay Shariatzadeh secretly tied the knot on Mon., Oct. 12.

In a great moment for dirt sheets everywhere, the story was first reported by PWInsider, but quickly confirmed by the likes of TMZ and E!

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.
