John Travolta, Kelly Preston Welcome Baby Boy
John Travolta and Kelly Preston are the proud parents of a baby boy. A spokesperson for the celebrity couple said in a statement that Preston gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Tuesday at an undisclosed hospital in Florida.
The statement said Travolta and Preston named their son Benjamin, who weighed 8 lbs. and 3 oz. Benjamin is the third child of Travolta and Preston. The couple’s eldest, Jett, died in January last year at the age of 16 after suffering a seizure while the family were on vacation in the Bahamas. Their daughter, Ella Bleu, is now 10 years old.
In a statement, a publicist for the couple said that the whole family is “ecstatic” about Benjamin. “John, Kelly, and Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family,” the statement said. “Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully.”
Travolta and Preston first announced that they were expecting their third child in May. Two months ago, the 48-year-old Preston said that they were very excited about the coming of the baby. “I’ve been cleaning out everything in the house,” she said in September.
