In addition to that, John Cena also has four siblings. He has an elder brother named Stephen Cena. The other three are younger than him and are known by Dan, Matt and Sean Cena. A family of four boys probably explains why John is a professional wrestler, eh?

The professional wrestler-turned-actor recently tied the knot with his girlfriend, Shay Shariatzadeh. The pair got hitched at an under-the-radar wedding ceremony in October 2020. Shariatzadeh is an engineer by profession.

Previously, John was married to Elizabeth Huberdeau between 2009-12. John and Shay do not have kids yet but are open to the idea of becoming parents in the near future.
