Amid news that Meghan Markle's father will skip her royal wedding with later this week, has joked that he can walk the down the aisle.

Cena spoke about the wedding when he shared co-hosting duties on "Today" with hosts and on Tuesday, reports

had told US website TMZ he would not go for the wedding amid a row over paparazzi photographs. He then said he would go for his daughter's D-Day, and then again said he cannot due to a planned heart procedure.

The hosts spoke to after news broke that the "Suits" actress' father would not attend her wedding.

Simmons jokingly suggested Cena's intervention was needed, saying, "Hey John -- this wedding, we're going to have the Royals, we're going to have Diana's family, the Spencers, now we're going to have the Markle family. I think we may need you here, my man, to intervene."

Cena responded: "It seems like there is some drama that is in need of a special guest referee."

Gifford turned to Cena and said, "She is in need of someone to give her away, isn't she? Who better than you?"

"I can hop on a plane, I can get there in a few days," Cena said jokingly.

The couple will exchange vows at St George's Chapel, on Saturday. The wedding will beam on Indian television deferred live on Colors Infinity.
