The Mad Men star lost his mother when he was 10 and his father when he was 20. This is why, as he told Us Weekly, he doesn't feel ready for the challenges of fatherhood. "I'd be a terrible dad," he said in the end. On the other hand, he cares a lot about things that help animals.

So, Drew Barrymore asked John Cena "where he was at" with having kids because he would be "the world's best father," and John gave a very thoughtful answer.
John said, “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."
He continued, “This is just my perspective; 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 a passion for it. You have to have a fuel for it. It’s like saying to somebody, ‘Man, you know, you are pretty good with your hands. You'd be a great carpenter.’”
He answered the question by saying, "It's hard to walk on water when everyone is asking, "When? I just don't know now."
