Less than two months after his birth, John Travolta and Kelly Preston are ready to introduce their tiny “miracle” to the world ! “He’s given the house a renewed spirit and purpose,” John, 56, tells People magazine about his son, Benjamin. “For us it’s been uplifting. Especially when he smiles at me and seems contented in my arms.” It’s great that John and Kelly have a reason to smile once again.
Is John Travolta a bad dad? We think he might be after hearing this story. The National Enquirer reports that Kelly Preston was devastated last month when her husband, John, left her, their daughter Ella, 10, and 1-month-old son Benjamin to spend a ski weekend with a trio of male friends. This comes on the heels of John ditching a heavily pregnant Kelly so that he could fly to Australia to help Qantas airlines celebrate its 90th birthday. Should a dad really leave his wife and newborn at home while he parties all weekend?
John Travolta and Kelly Preston are basking in baby bliss over their new son Benjamin‘s arrival! And if this isn’t the perfect way to welcome him into the Travolta family — John is serenading his little boy! “John’s been singing to Ben and dancing with him, telling him what a wonderful life he’s going to have,” a family friend tells Star magazine. “John says he cried and just melted when he first held Ben. He feels the baby is here for a reason.”
Just a few days after expectant couple John Travolta, 56, and Kelly Preston, 48, revealed that the name of their unborn baby is Benjamin, John had another shocking confession: He left Kelly — flying nearly 22 hours from the U.S. to Australia — while she was having contractions! What was he thinking?
John Travolta and Kelly Preston, who are expecting a son, are planning to follow the Church of Scientology’s “silent birth” guidelines when Kelly goes into labor, RadarOnline.com reports. The mom-to-be, who is expecting a baby boy later this fall, will have to try and control her urge to yell when contractions hit, while her doctors, John and their daughter, Ella Bleu, 10, silently gather in the delivery room. Hmm, seems a little daunting right?
Anyone who has struggled to conceive will tell you that it doesn’t matter if they have a boy or a girl. They just desperately want to have a healthy baby, which is why they’re often willing to undergo the painful process of in vitro fertilization. Now, new research has shown that women who undergo in vitro fertilization and have the embryo implanted in their womb five to six days after fertilization — as opposed to two to three days afterward — have an increased chance of giving birth to a baby boy.
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.”
