John Travolta and Kelly Preston welcome baby boy Benjamin

Great news for the Travolta clan. Nearly two years after the horrible loss of their son Jett, who died after a cardiac arrest when he was only 16 years, John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston welcomed a new member into their family.

Tuesday night in a hospital in South Florida located near their home, the actor’s wife gave birth to a baby boy named Benjamin. The 48-year-old mother and the baby, a little fellow of 8 pounds, 3 ounces, are doing well.

A spokesman for Travolta, 56, said: “John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family. Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully.”

This birth comes just in time for Thanksgiving, most undoubtedly the most beautiful present for John Travolta and his family.
