Per Variety, in every episode, fans became familiar with his wife, businesswoman Flavin who tied the knot with Sylvester in May 1997 and co-owns the Serious Skin Care wellness brand.

Viewers also glimpse the life of the oldest daughter Sophie as she finds her focus and co-hosts the "Unwaxed" podcast with Sistine. Sistine, an actress, and model, is seen hard at work in the first season, developing her first feature film, while her other sibling, Scarlet, whose acting career looked promising, has taken a break to pursue a college degree.

The 21-year-old was also included in the first season of "Tulsa King." Not only are the Stallones featured in their docuseries, but a few friendly faces like Al Pacino and Dolph Lundgren made brief cameos.

Following its May 17 release, "The Family Stallone" was a massive success as it became the top original reality series premiere on the streaming platform. The first season is streaming on Paramount+ in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, Brazil, the U.K., Australia, and Italy. Still, it will incorporate more international markets in due time.

On the other hand, Flavin maintained that nothing was staged in the show as it was neither dramatic nor filled with doctored disagreements. "I wanted to show people real-life things that happen," she shared. 

The Stallones were also pretty confident about their show's longevity but stressed that their goal was not to be like "The Kardashians" but to focus on authenticity. "They've done it so right," Sylvester later said of the Kardashians' success. "And it works for them, and there would be no point copying them." 

The 'First Blood' Actor Is An Expert With Breakup Texts And Predicting His Daughters' Relationships   

Meanwhile, fans could expect to view varied experiences from each family member, including Sylvester's involvement in his daughters' love lives. Firstborn Sophia further divulged that her dad gave the best dating advice, while her mom mentioned that the 76-year-old wrote their breakup texts.

Admitting to the claims, Sylvester said, "Guilty. I'm a good writer." Although that may be true, he also tends to include his signature catchphrase, "Keep punching," which Sistine revealed, adding that she deleted that part from the messages.

Elaborating on Sylvester's role in handling the breakup texts for his daughters, Sophia and Sistine spoke in a May 22 episode of the "Giggly Squad" podcast about how outstanding he is at the job. Sistine called the "Rocky" icon a "savant" whenever it concerned their dating lives in many areas besides calling things off with their men.

Sophia added, "I highly suggest girls go up to their dad and have their dad write a breakup text because men [know] men." Sylvester's message always got the job done without angering their boyfriends, who instead often responded with a "thank you."

"The Expendables" star also seemed to have an intuition whenever his girls brought their boyfriends home as he consistently predicted how long they would last, which he always got right even though the ladies believed their men were "good."
