Where there was formerly sorrow, the household of John Travolta and Kelly Preston in Ocala, Florida is now filled with joy, life, and, of course, baby smiles. That’s because Travolta, 56, and Preston, 48, welcomed baby boy Benjamin into their lives just days before Thanksgiving on November 23.
“He’s given the house a renewed spirit and purpose,” Travolta told People Magazine. This is a huge shift from just a mere few years ago, when Travolta and Preston were blindsided by the death of their son, Jett.
So how is big sister, Ella Bleu, 10, handling the adjustment? After waiting “excitedly” outside the delivery room for her baby brother’s arrival, she can now be caught giving him “big hugs” at home. Suffice it to say, she’s as smitten as her parents.
“He’s given us a new beginning,” Preston told the magazine. And, if anyone deserved that, they did.
Congrats to John Travolta and Kelly Preston on their happy family!
