Local boy meets hero Sylvester Stallone on 5th birthday

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A boy from Northeast Philadelphia received the gift of a lifetime when he got to meet his hero, Sylvester Stallone, on his 5th birthday.

Mom Tracy Blake posted the video on our Action News Facebook page on Friday.

She says she took her son Lloyd and his 6-year-old sister Ciana to Port Richmond hoping to catch a glimpse of Stallone filming the new Rocky movie.

But it turns out, the actor gave them much more.

She captured the video showing Stallone giving little Lloyd a birthday spin to remember.

When Blake yelled out that it was Lloyd's birthday, Stallone not only ran over to swing the boy around but he also threw a few playful jabs.

She says Lloyd has been obsessed with Rocky since he was two years old.
