Sylvester Stallone, 75, is one of the most well-known and well-respected Hollywood superstars working today. For decades he’s been an action movie legend, best known for portraying characters such as Rocky Balboa and John Rambo.
While he is known for playing a tough guy on TV, he is a dedicated family man in real life. And just this week, he and his wife, former model Jennifer Flavin, celebrated their wedding anniversary.
Several sweet tributes to each other were made on social media by the Hollywood couple celebrating their wedding anniversary.
The pair celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary on May 17th. In 1997, they exchanged wedding vows.
On Instagram, Stallone shared a selfie of himself and his wife with the world. “Time is rushing by, but I have a blessed life thanks to my wife and family,” the 74-year-old actor wrote about his family in a recent Instagram post.
Jennifer Flavin, 53, also paid tribute to her famous husband on social media, posting a photo of the couple on their wedding day and a tribute to him on her own page.
“Happy 24th wedding anniversary to the joy of my life!” Flavin exclaimed in a Facebook post.
Stallone and Flavin are the parents of three daughters: Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet, all born to them.
Flavin is Stallone’s third wife, even though their marriage is still strong. His first marriage to Sasha Czack ended in divorce in 1985 after a long and happy union. Sage and Seargeoh, the couple’s two boys, were born to them.
In addition, Stallone was married for two years to actress Brigitte Nielsen in a highly publicized Hollywood marriage and divorce that garnered widespread attention.
His marriage to Flavin was on the verge of being called off: after six years together, Stallone momentarily ended their relationship after his liaison with another woman came to light, prompting Flavin to propose. However, the pair was able to mend their relationship, have their first child, and be married in 1997.
It turned out that the third time was the charm for Stallone, and his marriage to Flavin is now considered to be one of the most successful and long-lasting unions in Hollywood history.
For Stallone, their romance has had a profound impact on his life. According to The Sun, he admitted in 2010 that he’d never had more fun before. “That’s something I learned from my wife… It took me 19-years to discover that she is always correct.”
“I discovered that women, or at least Jennifer, have a penchant for making highly educated, clever, and sensible decisions. I was impressed.” “I constantly take a leap of faith without looking.”
Flavin is now a successful businesswoman and the co-owner of a skin care company. And Sylvester Stallone has continued to enjoy a successful Hollywood career. He was nominated for an Academy Award for the triumphant return of his most renowned role as Rocky Balboa during the Creed flicks.
His other projects include the completion of a new director’s cut of Rocky IV and the co-starring role of King Shark in the superhero blockbuster The Suicide Squad, which is set to be released this summer.
Congratulations to Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin on their 24th wedding anniversary!
