Sylvester Stallone might be a famous tough guy on screen, playing iconic characters like Rocky and Rambo, but in real life, he’s got a soft spot — especially when it comes to his family.
Stallone, 74, is a devoted family man: he’s been married for 24 years to model Jennifer Flavin, and the couple has three daughters together: Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet.
And recently, the family celebrated a milestone: youngest daughter Scarlet, 19, graduated high school.
Stallone couldn’t hold back his pride in his kids, and shared a family photo on Instagram congratulating his daughter.
“Congratulations on graduating high school to our wonderful daughter SCARLET!” he wrote, along with photos of the family celebrating the big day.
Scarlet’s graduation comes just a few weeks after her 19th birthday, which Sly also celebrated on Instagram.
He called his daughter “talented , humble and Generous to all.” “We love you beyond words,” Stallone wrote.
Sly’s three daughters have grown up fast. The Rocky star posts plenty of photos of his family on social media, so fans have seen his kids enter adulthood over the years.
According to The Sun, oldest daughter Sophia, 24, studied communications at the University of Southern California, and Sistine, 22, has taken after her mother with a successful modeling career.
The three sisters were honored as Miss Golden Globe in 2017.
Stallone also had two sons from a previous marriage with Sacha Czack: Sage, who died of heart disease at age 36 in 2012, and Seargeoh.
Becoming a father again has been a great experience for Stallone, who has been enjoying family life with Flavin. “I’ve never had more fun,” he said in 2010, according to The Sun.
The couple recently celebrated their 24th anniversary. “Time is flying but I have a blessed life Thanks to my wife and Family,” Stallone wrote in a post marking the occasion.
But like any dad, Stallone is protective of his daughters when it comes to boys: “In terms of what to say if we don’t know how to answer a guy’s text. Or if we’re trying to break up with a guy he’ll give us really good advice… on how to cut them off,” Sistine told HollywoodLife.
“There are guys that have been broken up with via my dad, and they have no idea.”
And of course, Stallone continues to be a major star on screen. In recent years he has reprised his most famous roles, playing Rocky Balboa in the rebooted Creed movies (earning his second Oscar nomination for the role) and playing John Rambo in 2019’s Rambo: Last Blood.
He’s appeared in blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the upcoming The Suicide Squad, in which he will play King Shark.
And while he’s hung up the boxing gloves as Rocky and won’t be returning for Creed III, he’ll be back on screen as the Italian Stallion in another way: he recently announced his director’s cut of Rocky IV will be in theaters this November.
Congrats to Scarlet on graduating high school! It’s great to see Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone is so proud of his family.
