Sylvester Stallone Jokingly Wishes His Daughters Would ‘Stop Growing So Tall’

by Suzanne Halliburton

Sylvester Stallone is one proud dad.

The Rocky star showed off his three beautiful daughters in a Wednesday post on Instagram. Stallone was casual in the photo, while his daughters were dressed in their best evening wear. Stallone captioned the photo:

“I am a very very lucky man to have such wonderful, loving children who brought me nothing but joy. Now I wish they would stop growing so tall! Lol.”

There’s a reason Stallone’s daughters are so statuesque. And it’s not because of their dad, who is listed at 5-foot-10. Rather, it’s because their mother is Jennifer Flavin, a one-time supermodel. She’s 5’9″. Flavin met Sylvester Stallone in the late 1980s and appeared in Rocky V in 1990. They were married in London in 1997.

The couple has three daughters together — Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet. All three share the same middle name, Rose.

Sylvester Stallone Celebrated Daughter Sistine’s Movie Role

In the photo Sylvester Stallone posted, the star was helping to celebrate a major achievement by middle child, Sistine. The snap was taken before the Stallone daughters headed to the movie premiere of Midnight in the Switchgrass. Sistine, a former model like her mother, plays a character named Heather in the movie. It stars Bruce Willis, Emile Hirsch, Megan Fox, and Machine Gun Kelly.

All three Sylvester Stallone daughters walked the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere and posed for family photos. Sistine, who is 23, also appeared in the horror movie 47 Meters Down: Uncaged.

All the daughters are beautiful and talented. Sophia, who is 24, hosts a weekly podcast called Unwaxed. Sistine is her co-host. They talk all things important to the 20-something crowd, including dating and fitness.

Scarlet is 19. And she’s a social media influencer with more than 700,000 followers on Instagram. Like her famous dad, she loves to post family photos.

Sylvester Stallone turned 75 earlier this month. He celebrated the birthday milestone with his “wonderful” family. And he called them “the best birthday present I could ever receive!!!”

Back in February, he also posted about his youngest daughter, Scarlet.

“There’s nothing better than having the respect in the love of your children,” Sylvester Stallone said. “It’s the greatest wealth in the world.”

Stallone has five children. His oldest son, Sage, died in 2012 of a heart attack. Sage was only 36. Fans first saw Sage when he played Robert Balboa Jr. in Rocky V. Stallone’s second child also is a son named Seargeoh.

Sylvester Stallone has a number of new projects coming up. He’s in The Suicide Squad, which will premiere later this month. Stallone voices the role of Nanaue, the King Shark. He also stars in Samaritan, which IMDB says is in post-production.
