Kelly Preston Gave Birth To A Baby Boy – Kelly Preston, John Travolta’s wife, has given birth to a baby boy named Benjamin. He weighed 8lb 3oz and was born on Tuesday at an undisclosed hospital in Florida.
The new member of the family came almost two years on from the death of their teenage son Jett. In January 2009, a tragic event happened to Travolta’s family when Jett Travolta died from a seizure during a family holiday in the Bahamas. The teenager suffered from Kawasaki disease, a condition which causes inflammation of the blood vessels in young children.
Furthermore, the family suffered additional heartbreak in May when two of his dogs were killed in an accident at an airport in Maine.
The couple maried in 1991 and have a 10-year-old daughter named Ella. Ella Bleu Travolta has also apperared on screen, playing Robin Williams’ daughter in her father’s 2009 film Old Dogs. Kelly Preston was seen earlier this year alongside US singer Miley Cyrus in The Last Song.
According to the couple’s publicist, the Travolta family was ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family. Samantha Mast, a spokeswoman, said that mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully.
