John Travolta Shares Selfie With His Children After First Father's Day Without Kelly Preston
By Antoinette Bueno
John Travolta gave a sweet shoutout to his two children on Father's Day, his first year celebrating without his late wife, Kelly Preston.
The 67-year-old actor Instagrammed a happy selfie with his daughter, 21-year-old Ella, and his 10-year-old son, Benjamin, for the occasion. Preston died last July after a two-year battle with breast cancer. She was 57 years old.
"Happy Father’s Day everyone!" he wrote. "It is a privilege to be the father of these two beautiful children - thank you for the honor and my love and respect to all fathers."
"It was magic, because there is no one else in the world whom I would want to dance with than my daughter, Ella," he told the magazine. "It worked on so many levels. First, as a great piece of entertainment that people enjoyed. Second, it allowed me to introduce my daughter on a huge platform, show her talent, her beauty, and also it was a beautiful tribute for her mother. Kelly and I danced together. It was something very important for us."
