Sylvester Stallone was ready to get a divorce. Then Stallone and wife Jennifer Flavin walked it back and decided to stick it out and make marriage and their family work.
And why not? They’ve been married since 1997. That’s not just a long time in Hollywood, that’s a long time in modern America.

Now, they are moving forward with their reality show, The Family Stallone, coming your way this spring from Paramount+. It not only features Stallone and Flavin, but their three daughters — Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet.
A trailer for the show has already been teased, and it revealed little more than Stallone dangling from a mountain and making a snow angel. But it promises to be a chock full of family love and drama.
The Family Stallone
“I felt as though I wasted a lot of time,” Stallone said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “Now I realize there are only so many bullets left in the gun. Very few. When you’re young, you’re just haphazardly shooting wildly and hope you hit something.
“Now you don’t have the luxury of missing — especially with the family and the kids. I find that to be my biggest regret. Everyone goes, ‘I wish I’d shown love more’ or ‘I wish I’d spent more time with the kids.’ I’m riding that boat. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to do the reality show that I’ve been taking a lot of shit for.”
The series will last just eight episodes, and per the official announcement, “Stallone is ready to give cameras access to what he would consider the greatest role of his lifetime: dad. This new series starring Stallone’s three daughters, wife and himself offers a seat at the table of one of Hollywood’s most famous families.”
