After losing her son Jett in 2009 from a fatal seizure, the imminent arrival of her new son with hubby John Travolta is giving Kelly Preston a reason to smile again, and she’s loving every minute of her pregnancy.
As they prepare for the birth of their new baby boy later this fall, Kelly Preston, 47, and John Travolta, 56, can barely contain their excitement! “She can’t stop talking about it,” a close friend of the couple tells People magazine, “And John’s got a real sparkle in his eyes now. You can see it in his face.” After the loss of their beloved 16 year-old son Jett back in January 2009, Kelly and John, as well as their 10-year-old daughter Ella Bleu, finally have something wonderful to look forward to. “I can’t wait for the day to come and hold him in my arms,” says Kelly who has been craving all types of fruits. “Mangoes, lychees, peaches, cherries– you name it!”
The couple have been in complete nesting mode, preparing the nursery and planning the decor. “I’ve been cleaning out everything in the house,” Kelly says, “Ella has been helping too. She’s looking forward to being a big sister.” Both Ella and John have been talking to the baby and can’t keep their hands off Kelly’s growing bump! “[John] has been singing to the baby… and will rub my belly. Ella too.”
And in the midst of her third trimester, Kelly, who stars in Casino Jack alongside Kevin Spacey this December, is holding on to every precious moment of pregnancy. “It’s gone by so quickly,” she confesses to People. “I almost want it to slow down, because it’s been so amazing. I think I am going to miss it.”
