The famous actor, John Travolta has recently shared an adorable photo on Instagram. In the photo, the actor’s son, 12-year-old John, hugs his dog named Peanuts. The boy celebrates his birthday, but in the eyes of the child you can see a secret sadness. The fact is that the boy’s mother died 2 years ago from cancer.
“Happy birthday, son! we love you very much!” — wrote the 68-year-old actor.
This is Benjamin’s third birthday without his mother, Kelly Preston. Ella, Ben’s older sister, also shared a photo of her brother hugging Peanut and wished him a happy birthday.
“Happy birthday, the cutest boy in the world. Dad, Peanut and your sister love you very much! ”, The actress shared in the caption to her post.
Last month, on her mom’s birthday, Ella paid tribute to her beloved mom by sharing a collage of family photos. In the caption for the video “Can’t Help Falling In Love” Ella wrote the lines intended for her mother, “We miss you…”.
Kelly Preston was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020 and passed away 2 years later. In 2009, the couple faced tragedy when their eldest son, Jett, died. The boy was 16 years old and died suddenly during the Christmas holidays in the Bahamas. The boy had autism and often had seizures. This was the cause of death.
Travolta and Preston had lived together for 29 years.
