Baby Travolta has arrived! Kelly Preston, 48, and John Travolta, 56, welcomed their son — and as the couple promised, his name is Benjamin– yesterday (Nov. 23) in a Florida hospital! “John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu (10) are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family,” John’s rep says in a statement. “Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully.” Baby Ben was born weighing a healthy 8 pounds and 3 ounces! We are so thrilled for the Travolta family!

Kelly and John were planning on a silent Scientology birth!

Kelly discovered she was expecting in May, a little over a year after their 16-year-old son, Jett, died of a seizure in the Bahamas. The Travoltas “miracle child” has brought joy to their life after devastating heartache. “I can’t wait for the day to come and hold him in my arms,” Kelly said in September. Well Kelly, he’s finally here! Congratulations!
