The world was totally shocked when WWE superstar John Cena announced that he was married! The first question was, “to who?”
Cena, one of THE greatest wrestlers of all time, is now an accomplished actor, bodybuilder, and presenter, and had been dating engineer Shay Shariatzadeh. John saw Shay while he was filming in Vancouver, and he remarks that she, out of all her friends, caught his eye. They began dating, and well, the rest is history!
Nicholas Cage and Riko Shibata
Riko Shibata and Nicholas Cage made headlines when they tied the knot in early 2021 — mainly due to the couple’s age difference. At the time of marriage, Cage was 57 and Shibata was 26 — that’s a 31 year age difference!
Fun fact: Shibata is younger than Cage’s eldest son, Weston. We’re not wincing; you are. Shibata, who hails from Japan, first met Cage through mutual friends while he was filming a movie. Apparently, the reason Cage knew their marriage could work was that she... uh… keeps flying squirrels as pets.
Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin
Fun fact, one of our editors actually spied this ridiculously cute couple together on a plane from Nashville a couple of years ago — and now that we’re piecing together their love story, it must have been just after they tied the knot!
Lambert, a country superstar, wed ex-NYPD officer Brendan McLoughlin in 2019, which even caused her ex, Blake Shelton to gawk. But boy, do they seem happy! How they met? McLoughlin was doing security for her performance on Good Morning America!
Joseph Gordon Levitt and Tasha McCauley
Every time we see Joseph Gordon-Levitt, we immediately don’t know whether to think of “10 Things I Hate About You” or “Batman.” But we’re here to talk about his lady love and their story.
Gordon-Levitt married Tasha McCauley, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of the company Fellow Robots (yep, it’s exactly what you might think it is about), and now has two kids with her. How did they meet, though? They were set up on a blind date that was organized by mutual friends. How sweet!
Jeff Bridges and Susan Geston
Now, this is a true example of an A-lister megastar meeting an ordinary gal and falling in love…and resultantly being married for over four decades! Crazy, right? Well, this actually is the true story for Bridges and Geston.
Jeff Bridges first met his future wife in the '70s, while she was waiting tables to put herself through college. They met in Montana, and Geston was actually sporting two black eyes at the time she met Bridges — only adds to the intrigue, eh?
