Congratulations are in order -- John Travolta and Kelly Preston's new baby "Benjamin" has been BORN!
Benjamin Travolta. Got a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
Benjamin was born yesterday (Tuesday, November 23), in a Florida hospital, weighing in at a whopping 8 lbs., 3 oz. He joins his sister, 10-year-old Ella (pictured above with her parents at Old Dogs world premiere, November 2009). Sadly, their 16-year-old son Jett died in January of 2009.
Kelly is 48 years old and an inspiration to older moms! Here's the family's official statement:
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.
I say this kid will definitely STRUT before walking!
Huge congrats to the Travolta/Preston family!
