Playing EXCLUSIVE: Sylvester Stallone Reacts to Daughters Being Named Miss Golden Globe 2017: 'I'm Just Along for the Ride'

Sylvester Stallone has a new reason to be proud of his girls!

The 70-year-old actor couldn't help but gush over his three daughters, Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlett Stallone, being named Miss Golden Globe 2017, while sharing his reaction to the "surreal" news.

"I'm just along for the ride," the Creed star told ET's Carly Steel during the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Golden Globes event on Thursday.

"I'm stunned that life has moved by so quickly, and my daughters turned out so wonderfully," Sly added ahead of praising wife, Jennifer Flavin, for doing a great job raising the girls. "I have to give Jennifer all the credit."

Despite their upcoming roles on the Golden Globes stage, the Stallone sisters don't plan to pursue acting careers.

"That's definitely not for me," said 18-year-old Sistine, who enjoys working as a model.

Sophie, 20, agrees with her younger sister.

"Not for me," she said, explaining that working "behind the scenes" seems like a better fit.

"I've always loved working behind my dad and learning from him because I have the best teacher," she proudly continued. "I want to work with him this summer, I hope."

As the youngest in the bunch, 14-year-old Scarlett is still a ways from choosing her career path.

"I'm only in junior high," said the teen. "I don't know what to do."

The Stallone daughters’ Miss Golden Globe honor marks the first time that the HFPA has chosen three people for the coveted awards show position.

"I didn't take it lightly because I know that it hadn't been done before, and I thought it was incredibly gracious of the Golden Globes to present this opportunity," Sly continued before sharing a conversation that he had with his daughters.

"I said, 'Girls don't take this lightly, because this has never happened before,' and they're very appreciative," he pointed out.

With the Golden Globes only two months away, the sisters are looking forward to stepping outside of their parents' shadows for their own moment in the spotlight.

"It's such a cool opportunity, because our whole lives we’ve been in the shadows of [our parents] at all red carpet events since we were little," shared Sistine. "Now that it's about us for once it's such a cool opportunity to be [seen by viewers from] all over the world. It’s just amazing!"

The Stallone trio will make their Golden Globes debut when the ceremony airs Jan. 8 on NBC.
