Mario Lopez’s red carpet energy always tops the charts, but just after the interviewing marathon concluded at last night’s Emmy Awards, the hot Extra host ran straight for some intravenous intervention.

The 39-year-old father of two tweeted this photo of himself hanging out in bed post-show,  attached to an IV drip with 3-year-old daughter Gia by his side. The caption read, “Tough day. Ending it by being hooked up to IV....”

We wonder if Mario might be the latest celebrity to partake in the rising trend of dosing oneself with IV vitamins to re-energize after a rough night. While the contents of the bag are unconfirmed, this could have been a quick energy boost, or it might have just been some extra fluids to counteract a swift bout of dehydration.

Whatever the purpose, the dad who recently welcomed his second child and first son with wife Courtney Mazza earlier this month also tweeted this message earlier in the day: "Feeling a bit run down & out of it … I'll rally."

Sounds like Mario was just really under the weather, but we’re glad he made it to the red carpet. It wouldn’t be a party without Mario!
