John Cena & wife Shay Shariatzadeh have ‘second wedding’ in Vancouver

The couple was married for the first time on October 12, 2020.

John Cena and Shay Shariatzadeh held a second wedding 21 months after their first. 

The couple was first married in a private ceremony in Tampa, Florida on October 12, 2020. According to a report from PEOPLE, Cena and Shariatzadeh were married for a second time on Friday in a private ceremony held in Vancouver, British Columbia. 

Cena & Shariatzadeh met in Vancouver while Cena was filming “Playing With Fire” there in early 2019. Cena's "Peacemaker" show also films in the city. 

Shariatzadeh, 33, graduated from the University of British Columbia and works in engineering in Vancouver. She obtained Canadian citizenship after her family moved there from Iran. 

Cena discussed the possibility of him and Shariatzadeh having children one day during an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show

“I think just because you might be good at something, for me, it is not a strong enough reason to do that. You have to have passion for it. You have to have fuel for it. It’s like saying to someone, ‘Man, you know, you’re pretty good with your hands, you’d be a great carpenter,’ but if I want to be an actor, I’ll be an actor,” Cena said.
