Sylvester Stallone celebrates his daughter Sophia Rose’s 26th birthday with some family photos.

On Sundays the rocky actor shared family photos with himself, Sophia and Jennifer Flavin in honor of his daughter’s special day, which took place on Saturday.

“A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY VERY SPECIAL DAUGHTER, SOPHIA!!” Stallone, 76, wrote in the Instagram caption next to a carousel of family photos. Flavin, 54, filed for divorce from Stallone on Aug. 19.

In an instant, Stallone and Sophia were seen posing with big grins next to a golf cart as the two enjoyed some father-daughter time.

Another photo shows a selfie of Stallone, Sophia and Flavin while the group is in a vehicle. The trio was photographed in good spirits.

Another image in the post again shows the trio dressed to the nines as she poses for the camera.

On Saturday, Flavin also honored her daughter’s milestone by posting photos of Sophia and a throwback photo of the mother-daughter duo, but did not include images of Stallone.

Sophia’s celebratory messages from the former couple came after Flavin filed for divorce from Stallone last Friday.

She filed a petition “for dissolution of marriage and other exemptions” from the actor in a court in Palm Beach County, Florida.

The couple married in 1997 after first meeting in 1988 at a restaurant in Beverly Hills, California. Last May, they celebrated 25 years of marriage when Stallone praised Flavin as an “incredibly selfless, devoted, patient woman.” Flavin wrote in a now-deleted post: “Our marriage gets better every year! Can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together!”

In addition to Sophia, the former couple share two other daughters, Scarlet, 20, and Sistine, 24. Stallone is also the father of son Seargeoh from his previous marriage to Sasha Czack. His eldest son Sage, who he also shared with Czack, died in 2012.

In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE last week, Flavin said she will “always cherish” her relationship with Stallone.

“I am sad to announce that after 25 years of marriage I have filed for divorce from my husband, Sylvester Stallone. Although we will no longer be married, I will always cherish the 30+ year relationship we shared, and I know that we are both committed to our beautiful daughters,” she said.
