| Last updated
John Cena has married Shay Shariatzadeh at a discreet wedding ceremony in Florida.
The 43-year-old WWE star and actor hasn't announced anything publicly, nor did he invite press along for a photoshoot.
However, official documents seen by LADbible show he and Shay were wed on Monday in Tampa.
Cena was previously engaged to fellow wrestler Nikki Bella, but the pair split in April 2018.
He began dating Shariatzadeh in early 2019 after meeting her on the set of Playing with Fire.
According to E! News, Cena said on the red carpet at the premiere: "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."
Back in January, Cena talked about keeping his love life private.
Speaking to Access, he said: "I think it's, like with anything, if you set a goal, stick to the goal.
"With anything you choose to do, if you choose to do something, set up a structure that will protect it.
"I have a goal for sharing certain things with everybody and keeping certain things for me."
Love involves constant effort. When you are truly ready to let love in and give to love all it needs to flourish, I feel there is no greater more rewarding connection.

Cena was previously married to Elizabeth Huberdeau, with whom he tied the knot in 2009, before divorcing in 2012.
He has no children and has said previously that he does not wish to have any.
Former fiancée Bella said it was this reluctance to have children which ultimately ended their relationship.
In an interview with Maria Menounos on YouTube Show Better Together, Bella - who now has a child - said: "Overall, we did have such an incredible relationship.
"It was just two people that wanted two different lives but were trying so hard to make it one.
"Even in the end when he was willing to give me kids, I could just tell, it's not what he wanted. And that's really, like, you know, what pushed me in the end, I was like, 'Am I going to force someone to be a father?'
"What if he looks at you down the road and just regrets everything, and then you have this child and you've built this life?
"Is that what you want? And I remember thinking, 'It's not what I want.'"
