Arachnophobia is defined as a “severe fear of spiders” that becomes a phobia when it “takes up your thoughts, meddles with your everyday routines, and prevents you from socializing with your friends and family. The Cleveland Clinic estimates that 3 to 15% of the population suffers from this condition. The oldest of Sylvester Stallone’s three children with model Jennifer Flavin, who was his ex-wife, is Sophia. She was conceived on August 27, 1996, a year before the wedding. Sistine, 24, and Scarlet, 20, are Sophia’s younger sisters. Together with her younger sister Sistine, Sophia presently co-hosts a podcast and conducts a reading club.

Seargeoh, Stallone’s 43-year-old son from his first marriage to photographer Sasha Czack, is another child. According to Reuters, their son Sage passed away from a heart attack in 2012 at the age of 36.
