Personal Life

John Cena, 46, is happily married to Shay Shariatzadeh, a Canadian engineer; the couple has not publicly announced any plans for children.

This is unsurprising as Cena’s previous marriage to Elizabeth Huberdeau did not result in children.

However, it is worth noting that the couple had a formal wedding in July 2022, two years after their private ceremony in October 2020.

They may have discussed starting a family in the future, but for now, Cena and Shariatzadeh are enjoying their time together as a married couple.
