1. Sylvester Is Quirky and Engaging During Interviews
Sylvester Stallone has never had trouble engaging an audience. With his new reality series on Paramount+, viewers can dive into the star’s personal life. Like most reality series, the stars are pulled aside for testimonials and interviews. The Family Stallone is no different, giving each member of Stallone’s family a chance to share their unique personality. Sylvester is often quick-witted and personable when it comes to his interviews.
2. His Daughters Were Raised Tough
Stallone’s three daughters, Sophia (26), Sistine (24), and Scarlet (21), are no strangers to a military-style upbringing. No surprises here, the Rambo and Rocky star wants his daughters to be as tough as he is. The daughters were given a rigorous routine, often woken up before the crack of dawn for fitness and mental challenges like poetry recital.
3. The Show Hides Marital Troubles
Many of Stallone’s fans are aware that he and Jennifer Flavin had filed for divorce in late 2022, which was quickly reconciled. However, The Family Stallone was filmed roughly around that time. If the family was so public when it came to the topic of divorce, why was it not included in the show? Stallone also revealed his two tattoo cover-ups publicly, which happened to be photos of Flavin.
4. His Daughter Sophia Has a Hole In Her Heart
Stallone’s oldest daughter Sophia has struggled with a heart condition since she was born. After a relatively normal childhood and adolescence, the star’s daughter fainted during a volleyball tournament, changing her life forever. Sophia details the extreme trauma she endured after fighting for her life. It was discovered that Sophia has a hole in her heart, and she had to have an invasive surgery to patch it. This surgery led to annual checkups and constant worry that the surgery may not have been effective.
5. Stallone is Extremely Protective of His Family
Again, it is no surprise that the star that constantly portrays rough and tough characters is highly concerned for the safety and well-being of his family. Stallone’s reality series truly reveals the small details that make his life that much more interesting. Though he has had marital troubles with Flavin previously, it appears that the couple is happy and hopeful on camera. Stallone’s daughters are constantly reassuring that he is overprotective, even monitoring the girls’ dates to weed out potential bad eggs.
