Sylvester Stallone posts adorable family photos amid divorce from Jennifer Flavin
After learning that his wife had filed for divorce, Sylvester Stallone posted a series of images of his family.
On Sunday, the 76-year-old Rocky Balboa icon shared a touching homage to his daughter Sophia in the form of a post that included photos of him and his family, including his wife Jennifer Flavin.
They have been married for 25 years, and Sylvester and Jennifer have three kids together, the eldest of whom is Sophia, now 26.
This month, though, it was reported that Jennifer, 54, had filed for divorce from the actor.
She expressed her regret at the news and promised to ‘cherish’ the time they had together in an interview conducted shortly after it broke.
In order to celebrate the birthday of his “very special daughter,” the actor posted a few photos from their time together to Instagram.
Sylvester went online and proclaimed, “A VERY HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO MY VERY SPECIAL DAUGHTER, SOPHIA!!!”
Several old photos of him, Sophia, and Jennifer were displayed, including a touching father-daughter snapshot from when Jennifer was a little girl and a photo of a teenage Sophia cuddling a horse at a stable.
Sylvester, Jennifer, and Sophia are shown smiling and posing for a selfie in another photo while sitting in a car; Sophia has her hands behind her father’s head.
Sylvester stands by Jennifer’s side in one Christmas photo, while Sophia poses next to him in a blood-red jumpsuit.
After the Rocky actor covered a tattoo portrayal of Jennifer with a photo of the franchise’s beloved canine, speculation emerged that the couple’s marriage was finished.
Jennifer subsequently issued a statement saying she was “sad to announce that after 25 years of marriage I have filed for divorce from my husband Sylvester Stallone.”
She continued, : ‘While we will no longer be married, I will always cherish the more than 30-year relationship that we shared, and I know we are both committed to our beautiful daughters.’
She continued, ‘I ask for privacy for our family as we amicably move forward,’
The former couple first met in 1988, tied the knot nine years later, and raised three young ladies named Sopha, Sistine, and Scarlet.
Although the official cause for the divorce has not been disclosed, it has been claimed that the mother of three has sought to revert back to her maiden name and has insisted on remaining in the couple’s Palm Beach house during the procedures.
The Stallones are apparently in the middle of filming a reality show together for Paramount+.
