What started off as a yarn spun by Star magazine turns out to be a big fat reality: The Travoltas are expecting!
A rep for the clan tells People that John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston, 47, have a baby on the way: “It’s impossible to keep a secret … especially one as wonderful as this,” adding, “We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family. Love, John, Kelly and Ella.”
The same message has also been posted on Travolta’s official website.
It’s not been made clear whether Preston is actually pregnant, or if they’re expanding their brood via surrogate. Star magazine’s report said she is three months gone, and People appears to back this up. Who knows, it’s happy news regardless.
Travolta and Preston are parents to Ella Bleu, 10.
Their 16-year-old son Jett died of a seizure in January 2009.
These two have been through the wringer of late, and it’s lovely to hear some good news from their camp. Congratulations!
