Kearney won the Arnold Australia Pro Strongman sports festival just days before he married his long-term boyfriend Joey Aleixo. 

Former California governor, movie star, and body builder Arnold Schwarzenegger celebrated the wedding of strongman Rob Kearney and his new husband Joey Aleixo with an Instagram post showing the three men together. Kearney and Aleixo were married in Australia on Sunday just days after Kearney took first place at the Arnold Australia Pro Strongman sports festival.

Kearney, 27, came out five years ago in a social media post announcing that Aleixo was his boyfriend at the time.

Following their wedding, Kearney Instagrammed a photo with Aleixo at Half Moon Bay Beach in Australia and wrote, "I am so excited to start this new journey as a married couple and my heart has never been so full of love."

Considered one of the strongest men in the world, Kearney is the head athletic trainer at the Williston Northampton School in Massachusetts when he's not competing, according to Outsports.

In an interview for the Williston School website in 2017, Kearney spoke of the metaphorical weight of coming out and said that living authentically "made me a better strongman."
