John Cena is off the market!

The WWE pro and actor married girlfriend Shay Shariatzadeh on Monday at an attorney’s office in Tampa, Florida, according to a marriage certificate obtained by People. Rumors started spreading of the two dating in March 2019 after they met on the set of Playing With Fire.

"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," Cena told Entertainment Tonight last October.

Cena and the project manager at Avigilon were first spotted holding hands in Vancouver in March 2019 before making their relationship official at the premiere of Playing With Fire. The couple made headlines again after sharing some PDA on the red carpet at the premiere of his movie Dolittle, where Cena referred to Shariatzadeh as “family” to media outlets on the carpet. 

"It’s a family movie and it’s a wonderful occasion to celebrate with family," he said.

In January 2020, after the Dolittle premiere, Shariatzadeh was spotted wearing a “huge” diamond on her ring finger—which neither of the two confirmed nor denied. But now it all makes sense! 

Cena was previously married to Elizabeth Huberdeau from 2009-2012 and then in a 6-year relationship with fellow WWE star, Nikki Bella before the two broke off their engagement weeks before their wedding in 2018. Bella has also found love again with fiancé and Dancing With the Stars partner, Artem Chigvintsev. The two welcomed their first child Matteo in July.

Not even 2020 can cancel love!
