On July 6, 1946, Michael Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone was born in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan.
Sylvester spent his childhood living in Washington, DC, with his family. He then went to university in Florida before moving back to New York City.
During the early 1970s, Sylvester struggled to support himself. After sleeping for three weeks in a bus terminal, he took a role in a soft-core pornography film.
Years later, he gained international fame as the star and writer of Rocky. The film, which was made on an extremely small budget, was a huge hit. It was the highest-grossing film of 1976 and won three Oscars.
After the success of Rocky, Sylvester went on to write four sequels — and a fifth was written by someone else.
Sylvester’s romantic life was tabloid-fodder for years. He had five children throughout his three marriages, but his oldest son, Sage, passed away in 2012. His three youngest children, daughters Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet, are all grown up now and working as models.
At age 28, Sylvester Stallone got married for the first time. He and his wife had two children, Sage and Seargeoh.
He later had a highly publicized marriage to actress and model Brigitte Nielsen, which only lasted two years.
In May 1997, Sylvester tied the knot for the third time.
He and Jennifer Flavin had three daughters, Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet.
Today, those little girls are all grown up, and all three of them are working as professional models.
At the 74th Golden Globe Awards in 2017, all three daughters were honored as Miss Golden Globe.
Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet are still young, but they already spend a lot of their time working as professional models.
Sophia was recently a judge on Project Runway, and she did a Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign with sister Sistine.
All three sisters also posed for Harper’s Bazaar Australia this summer.
Sophia and Sistine both attend the University of Southern California, and Scarlet is still in high school.
Sylvester is hugely proud of his three daughters, and he makes it very obvious on his social media.
With this photo, he wrote, “The three roses and one weed.”
Along with this picture, he wrote: “With my wonderful daughters on a magazine photo shoot that I crashed… Hey, I’ve got to keep an eye on them, right, and believe me I do…”
Jennifer’s Instagram is also chock-full of pictures of their daughters.
It’s wonderful to see how much these sisters love each other and how close they are with their parents.
Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet are absolutely beautiful, and their personalities are just as stunning as their appearances.
It’s obvious that Sylvester and Jennifer have been wonderful parents.
