The countdown has begun for the Travoltas: John Travolta has cut short a visit to Australia to fly his private jet back to the States, after learning that his wife, Kelly Preston, has gone into labour.
Travolta had been due to make an appearance at an event for national flag carrier Qantas in Perth on Sunday, but had to dash to the airport in Sydney when he heard that Preston was about to give birth to their third child.
“He’s on the way back to the States because his wife’s gone into labour,” an airline the spokesman told AFP. “His priority was always obviously his wife’s pregnancy and we completely respect that.”
“I can’t wait to meet Benjamin,” people.com quoted Travolta as saying.
