On July 6, 1946, Michael Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone (aka Sylvester 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. On December 28, 1974, he tied the knot with Sasha Czack. He and Sasha had two children, Sage and Seargeoh. Sylvester and Czack got divorced on February 14, 1985.
He later had a highly publicized marriage to actress and model Brigitte Nielsen. Sylvester and Brigitte got married on December 15, 1985. Their marriage was short-lived, though —they got divorced two years after tying the knot.
After a few other relationships — with Janice Dickinson and Angie Everhart — Sylvester tied the knot for a third time.
He and Jennifer Flavin got married in May 1997. The two of them share three daughters: Sophia (born in 1996), Sistine (1998), and Scarlet (2002).
While they were young, Sylvester and Jennifer made sure to take tons of pictures of their adorable little girls. Sylvester loves sharing those photos on his social media accounts.
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 all shared the role of Golden Globe Ambassador that year.
In 2018, they passed off the award to Simone Garcia Johnson, Dwayne Johnson’s daughter.
Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet are still young, but they already spend a lot of their time working as models.
The sisters are very close, and they spend a lot of their time together. They even do some of their modeling gigs together!
Sophia was recently a judge on Project Runway, and she did a Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign with her younger sister, Sistine.
All three of the girls often make red carpet appearances, always in stunning gowns.
Sistine has appeared as a model in Nylon magazine and W magazine. This year, Sistine and Sophie posed together for Seventeen magazine.
All three sisters also posed for Harper’s Bazaar Australia last summer.
But just because they’re models doesn’t mean they aren’t focused on their education.
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. He constantly praises their accomplishments and compliments them on their careers.
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…”
Sylvester knows his daughters are beautiful, but he cares more about what’s inside than how they look on the outside.
Jennifer’s Instagram is also chock-full of pictures of their daughters. She is the definition of a proud mama, sharing updates on every aspect of her daughters’ lives.
Whether she’s sharing pictures of Sophia at college, Sistine modeling, or Scarlet getting her driver’s license, she’s always excited about her daughters’ accomplishments.
It’s clear Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet have learned a lot about social media from their parents. All three sisters love to post photos of their siblings on Instagram.
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. Even though the girls have been raised in the spotlight, they still have good heads on their shoulders.
