Three-time Oscar nominee Sylvester Stallone celebrated his eldest daughter Sophia’s 26th birthday on Sunday with an Instagram slideshow while while going through a divorce.

The 54-year-old creator of Serious Skincare exclaimed on Instagram, “You offer so much love and happiness to everyone you know! I’m the luckiest mother ever! In addition to being a gorgeous person, you work hard, are intelligent, and most importantly, are caring. Being able to call you my daughter makes me the happiest mother in the world. I adore you,” her caption read.

On August 19, Jennifer formally filed for divorce from Sly (born Michael) after a 25-year union, accusing him of concealing marital assets.

He displayed several images of Sophia, Jennifer, and himself over the years, including a touching father-daughter snapshot of her as a young child and a picture of Sophia as a teenager cuddling a horse in a barn.

Another image showed Sophia, Sylvester, Jennifer, and Sophia taking a selfie inside a car, with Sophia’s hands behind Sylvester’s head and Jennifer grinning.

In another photo from around Christmas, Sylvester is shown holding Jennifer in his arms as Sophia is posing next to him in a vicious red costume.

For Sophia’s birthday, Sylvester posted a collection of adorable pictures from over the years.

The reason behind separation?

According to Closer Weekly, the legal papers claimed that the spouse had “acted in the purposeful dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had a detrimental economic impact on the marital estate.”

According to Florida Statutes Section 61.075, “Equity requires that the wife be made whole and compensated by receiving an uneven division of the marital property in her favor.” Additionally, the husband should be restrained from disposing of any assets while the case is still pending by a court order.

If only they could live another 25 years! The couple had recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary when the shocking breakup occurred.

In a recently-discovered interview from January 31, Sylvester Stallone claimed that losing Flavin would be “mass suicide.”

Jennifer was “wagon train stuff,” according to Flavin, since she prepared meals for Stallone, reminded him of his schedule, carried his bags, opened doors, made reservations at restaurants, and cleaned.

Although their renowned parents were “polar opposites,” Sophia and Scarlett, both 20 years old, acknowledged that they “simply cannot exist without one another.”

The native of West Hills concurred, “That’s true.” Jennifer claimed to have provided “everything” for the native New Yorker, including carrying his bags, opening doors, cooking, and cleaning. She also made him meals and reminded him of his schedule.

Although Sylvester Stallone acknowledged that he “annoys the crap out of her,” the West Hills native referred to him as “the funniest man I’ve ever met” and said that “that’s what keeps us going.

The former Cal State Northridge student added that she always “earned my own money and paid my own bills,” which was “one of the main things that helped our marriage.”

News about the separation were getting started when Sylvester Stallone concealed the tattoo of Jennifer with their dog. However, he maintained that he wanted to upgrade the tattoo but the result came out unsatisfactory.
