WWE wrestler and movie star John Cena is a married man. 

Cena and girlfriend Shay Shariatzadeh were married in a private ceremony on Monday in Tampa, according to multiple reports. The couple had been dating since early 2019. 

Shariatzadeh, who was born in Iran, is a Canadian citizen and lives in Vancouver, where as of 2019 she was working at a tech company. She and Cena were first spotted together in March 2019 while Cena was in Vancouver filming a movie. The couple later attended the premiere of Cena’s movie Playing With Fire together in October 2019. 

Shariatzadeh was reportedly seen in February wearing an engagement ring, and Cena, who maintains an enigmatic social media presence, hinted at the engagement on Instagram but did not comment publicly.
