Sylvester Stallone is Jason Statham's 'baby-guru' and offers to babysit after Rosie gives birth

We doubt he needs the pocket money.

Yet Sylvester Stallone has reportedly signed up to be Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s babysitter when the couple welcome the arrival of their newborn baby this summer.

The actor and father-of-five is a close friend of the celebrity couple and one of the few people they would trust to look after their precious little bundle of joy.

According to sources close to the pair, Sly – who has been working with Jason on the ‘Expendables’ movie franchise – is said to be their go-to friend for parenting advice.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: “The chat always seems to be parenthood. It’s not a sight you expect – two action heroes talking about nappy duty over a beer in the back garden.

“Rosie and Jason are so fond of Sly and he’s like their baby guru. He has said 1,000 times he’d love to babysit their child.

“They’d take him up on it too. He’s one of the few people they’d feel comfortable leaving their baby with.”

The Rocky star has three daughters, Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14, with wife Jennifer Flavin and has been giving Jason advice on how to cope with raising girls.

The insider added: “He’s warned Jason how hard it is to be a dad to girls. So it’s not only advice on new-borns but teens too.

“If Jason has a snag with raising his baby, he’ll probably call Sly before he Googles it.”

Stallone’s first-born, son Sage – with first wife Sasha Czack – sadly died aged 36 in 2012 and the pair also have a son, Seargeoh, now aged 36, together.
