SYLVESTER Stallone has made sure that his daughters can efficiently defend themselves if the time comes when they have to.

Sylvester hired Navy SEALs to help toughen up his daughters before they left home for the Big Apple.

The Rambo star, 77, shares daughters Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet with his wife, model Jennifer Flavin, 55, and sons Sage and Seargeoh with his first ex-wife, Sasha Czack.

Being the protective dad he is, the Hollywood actor gave two of his girls, Sophia and Sistine, proper self-defense training before they moved to New York City.

Sophia and Sistine recently opened up to the New York Post about the experience of learning how to handle themselves from Navy SEALs.

They shared their testimony ahead of the Season 2 premiere of the family’s show Paramount series, The Family Stallone.

Sistine revealed that the training was shot for the reality series, and was edited to appear “really nice and kind of fluffy,” although in actuality, it was the hardest thing.

She added: “It was about six hours we were in those woods.

“They made it a cute little montage, Sophia and I got our a–es whooped by these guys, they were the real deal.”

Sistine also noted she wasn’t surprised that her dad put her and Sophia “through something like this” since they grew up with Sylvester doing “military-esque self-defense trainings” all their life.

Sophia agreed, disclosing: “It was a rigorous routine, it was every day at 6 a.m. he would make us eat eggs with ketchup, for some reason that combination was like an elite combination.”

PAPA BEAR

Sylvester seems to embrace being a papa bear.

In an episode of The Family Stallone that aired in May 2023, he was determined to keep unsavory men away from his daughters.

Sylvester said: “Some day they’ll see I’m helping. I’m getting rid of these creeps. Can I help choose the husband?

“I think young love is a temporary form of insanity, you do things you may regret, so I’m here to prevent that.

How Stallone’s glam daughters ‘will overshadow Kardashians’ with brand empire,

“My kids are still kids, I look at them as kids. I can’t imagine them having kids, it’s like: ‘Oh my god.’ That really is a seminal moment I can’t wrap my head around.

“This child who was running round in flannel pyjamas with ribbons in her hair is a full blown woman. It’s a very hard concept that she’s not your baby, but she is your baby.”

RUINING THE MOOD

Family life for the Stallones is chaotic, more like the hit series The Osbornes than Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and Sly’s girls waste no time explaining how their famous father meddles with their love lives.

He even ruined Sistine’s first chance at a steamy snog.

The actress explained: “Dating when you have the dad we do is rough. Bring any boy home and he goes full on Rambo.

“The first time a boy came over to meet my parents he was going in for the first kiss, I was so nervous but I was excited.

“He looks up at the balcony and he goes: ‘Oh my god, what is that?’
“It was my dad standing on the second floor balcony, back lit so you just see his silhouette. He’s so cinematic in the most unnecessary way.
“Let me tell you, this kid jumps in his car, went down the driveway and I never saw him again.”

Fast forward to last year and the LA beauty decided to get her own back by pulling a prank at Sly’s birthday lunch when she gave him a cake suggesting she was pregnant.

She proves to be just a good an actor as her dad because he falls for it and gets mad.

Cameras catch the moment he starts sweating and tells the camera operator: “Let’s turn the camera off for second so I can destroy this place. I’m going full Rambo, pal!”

Wife Jennifer has to quickly admit it’s a joke, with Sly breathing a sigh of relief: “Of all the sick things I’ve done, that takes the cake!”

But while she was doing it for the laughs, Sistine was also determined to make a point to her protective father.

She told him: “I did it because you have a hard time accepting the fact we’re getting older, we’re maturing, we’re approaching those years.

“You just need to make more of an effort, or just not scare off every guy we bring over, especially ones we care about.

“When I was little I always told mum that I was going to marry dad. I didn’t understand you couldn’t marry your dad. I always thought you were the only man for me.

“Saying that out loud…you are the opposite of my type! I don’t know what I was thinking back then. Imagine two of him in the same room?”
