As for her working experience, according to her LinkedIn, she worked as a sales associate at Guess and La Vie En Rose before she started working as a product manager at Avigilon, a Vancouver-based Motorola solutions company, in 2019.

How did she meet her future husband?

Shariatzadeh met her future husband in February 2019 at a restaurant in Vancouver when Cena was filming for Playing With Fire

They were first spotted together holding hands in March

In October, they appeared together as a couple on the red carpet at the NYC premiere of Playing With Fire.

He said in an interview that no matter what projects he is involved in in the future Playing with Fire would forever have a special meaning because he got to film a special project and meet someone special. 

The couple got married on the 12th of October, 2020, in Tampa, Florida, in a small ceremony after getting engaged in early 2020.

Cena was previously married to Elizabeth Huberdeau in July 2009. He filed for divorce in May 2012, which was finalized in July.

Planning to start a family is certainly not on the list as of now 

Cena has set a new record for granting the most wishes through the Make-A-Wish foundation with a record of granting 650 wishes which is proof of how much he loves kids but having kids of his own is certainly not on the list as of now as he has had said earlier also that he does not want children because he does not want to be an absentee parent. 

While appearing on The Drew Barrymore show, Cena made it clear that even though he is married now, it’s not the right time for him to have kids. 

He said he is really enjoying his life and have been riding a lightning bolt for quite some sometime. 

He has been given opportunities to do and see things that he hadn’t dreamt of, and he had some lofty dreams, which according to him, is hard work. 

So it’s hard work to balance the time he needs to run himself correctly as well as it’s hard work to be the best partner and husband he can be to his loving wife, he explained.

He then went on to say that just because he might be good at something is not a strong enough reason for him to do that. 

“You have to have a passion for it. It’s like saying to someone, Man, you know you are pretty good with your hands. You would be a great carpenter”, he added.

Her husband was previously engaged to Nikki Bela

Cena was previously engaged to fellow wrestler Nikki Bela

The former couple got engaged in 2017 after Cena romantically proposed to Bella, going on one knee in front of thousands of fans at WrestleMania 33 after dating for four years. 

They had scheduled their marriage in May 2018 but parted ways in April

Later in May, Cena opened up about his split with then-fiancée with TODAY’s host Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, where he said he had his heart broken out of Nowhere.

He said at the time, he still loved Nicole and still wanted to marry her, and he loved to have a family with her. He hoped they could work it out one day. 

He then went on to say that whether he wanted to realize that or not, she became his no.1, so he was willing to go back on all of those things that he said.

And a lot of them, he was hanging onto just of stubbornness not wanting to have kids, but it took a very strong look in the mirror for him to be like, “Why”? 

This person is my no.1, and it’s something that’s valuable to her. Of course, we can do this, he explained. Cena did not reveal what led to their split. 

He just said there were an unfortunate set of circumstances where their relationship ended.

However, the former couple has moved on with their respective lives, getting married to their respective partners.

Net Worth

Her exact financial detail is under review, but she is part of her husband’s extravagant net income. 

So as of now, we have the net worth of her husband, John Cena, who is not only a professional wrestler but also Hollywood’s A-list actor. 

He has a net worth of $80 million.


  1. She was born on 21st September 1989 in Iran. She is currently 33 years old.
