The pair married at The Vancouver Club in Canada with family and friends in attendance, TMZ reported.

They were first romantically linked when they were seen on a dinner date in Vancouver in March 2019, where John was filming Playing With Fire.
Speaking to ET about a year before they got married, John gushed, ‘What’s truly special about this [movie] 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.’
In a whirlwind romance, the pair tied the knot in a private ceremony in Tampa, Florida the following year.

Earlier this year, the Suicide Squad star opened up to Drew Barrymore about whether or not he wants children.
After she suggested that he would be ‘the world’s greatest father’ he reflected, ‘This is just my perspective – totally not qualified – but I think just because you might be good at something, for me, is not a strong enough reason to do that.
‘You have to have passion for it. You have to have a fuel for it. It’s like saying to someone, “Man, you know you are pretty good with your hands. You would be a great carpenter.”‘
Cena added, ‘It’s hard work. It’s hard work to balance the time, I need to run myself correctly. It’s hard work to be the best partner and husband I can be to my loving wife.
‘It’s hard to keep connections with those in my life that I love. And it’s also hard to put in an honest day’s work.’
