“Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara has Arnold Schwarzenegger to thank for getting her all pumped up before her night out with husband Joe Manganiello. The stars were seen Saturday in Santa Monica at the Arnold Pro Strongman USA Qualifier, which was held at the Santa Monica Pier.
The winner from the event qualified for the Arnold Pro Strongman Classic, which is held in March in Columbus, Ohio. The musclemen competed in a range of exercises, including deadlifts, farmer walks and sandbag loading.
In the end, veteran strongman Martins Licis beat out the competition and emerged the victor. Schwarzenegger congratulated the star on Instagram and reflected on the day at the beach.
“Such a fantastic day yesterday watching the strongest men in the world and the strongest firefighters in the world compete! Congrats to @martinslicis on an epic comeback to win the Arnold Strongman USA championships and congrats to @suckafreebg on winning the World’s Strongest Firefighter.”
The “Terminator: Dark Fate” star also thanked his celebrity friends for coming out and supporting the other competition being held that day.
Along with the professional Strongman competition, the event in Santa Monica also held a separate amateur competition for the World’s Strongest Firefighter. The firefighters compete in the same events with about half the weight, and money raised goes to local benevolent funds.
“Thanks to @joemanganiello, @sofiavergara, @chaseyoung_ and all of you who came out to support the firefighters. We raised a lot of money for a great cause and had a great time. See you all next year!” Schwarzenegger wrote alongside the winning firefighter.
After watching a bunch of Strongman competitions all day, Sofia and Joe were all amped up for their date night. The “Modern Family” star took to Instagram to show off her look for the evening and fans were floored by her beauty.
Vergara wore a sexy little black dress with a puffy jacket and killer boots.
“Those boots are everything!” one fan commented.
“Sofia, you are the most beautiful woman in the world,” another wrote. It’s unclear where the TV star and her hubby went for the night, but we’re guessing it didn’t matter.
