John Cena goes the Dwayne Johnson's The Game Plan (2007) route for his next release, Playing With Fire. Starring alongside Keegan-Michael Key and John Leguizamo, Playing With Fire sees the WWE wrestler turn firefighter, who is enlisted to take care of three children after their house catches fire. Judging by its trailer, the Andy Fickman directorial promises a rollercoaster ride of laughter. However, the film has also given a chance for John to picture himself as a parent.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 42-year-old actor got candid about the one trait he has learned about child-rearing while shooting for Playing With Fire. "Patience! That is the one word that I will keep repeating to myself over and over. And, I think that's a good life lesson. I think we could all use a little more patience," Cena revealed. Furthermore, John added that for him animals and children are so "beautiful" and "creative" and hence, we need to have patience for them. While he doesn't remember what he was doing at the young age of four or 10, the children who star in his movie are "awesome." So were the animals!

"You just have to understand the circumstance and manage the element and just be patient," Cena added. The Fast & Furious 9 star also revealed that there are some friends for whom John has babysitted their kids which is surprising to him because he never saw himself in such a situation. On what these kids can expect from their Uncle John, the wrestler shared that he would ask them what it was that they would enjoy to do and then let them do it if it was in his realm. "Kids will get you out of your comfort zone and I try to get out of my comfort zone at least once a day, so that would be a nice vehicle to do that," Cena shared.

It's interesting to note that one of the primary reasons for John Cena's split from ex-fiancée Nikki Bella was because he did not want children.
