Sylvester Stallone’s Daughter Sophia Reveals She Has a Hole In Her Heart & Has Underwent 2 Surgeries

Sylvester Stallone’s daughter Sophia is opening up about her heart condition. On Wednesday’s episode of their reality show “The Family Stallone,” the 26-year-old revealed she was born with a hole in her heart. In the candid episode, she told her younger sister, Sistine, that she got really sick when she was 2 months old, and doctors originally had no idea what was wrong with her. Sophia’s mom, Jennifer Flavin, eventually found a doctor who discovered that she had a hole in her heart, and she was able to undergo a surgery. After living a normal life for several years, when she was 16, she fainted while playing volleyball. “It was really having to go from living this normal life when I was 16 to having to have my chest sawed open,” she said. “The moment I found out I needed an operation was one of the most pivotal experiences of my entire life because I never had to consider death before.”
