John Travolta Shares a Sweet Family Video in Honor of His Daughter’s 19th Birthday
John Travolta just shared an Instagram video of his family during his daughter, Ella's, 19 birthday dinner. His kids, especially Ella, definitely look like him.
Not only is John Travolta a great actor, but also is he a great father. He usually shares photos of his wife and kids on Instagram, showing how tight-knit they are.
Recently, Travolta posted a sweet birthday greeting for his daughter, Ella Bleu’s, 19th birthday. The post included a video of their family amidst dinner, as Ella shows a gift she has received and Travolta capturing and narrating the special moment.
Kelly, Ella’s mom, also posted a throwback photo of her and Ella with a sweet caption that read:
“To my sweetest baby girl Ella… Happy Birthday!!! I love you soooo much!!"
Ella, who is a spitting image of her father, is the only girl in the family and has two siblings, Benjamin and Jett. Unfortunately, Jett passed away in 2009, at the age of 16. His passing happened amidst a family trip in their Bahamas resort villa, as Jett suffered a massive seizure.
Despite the unfortunate event, Travolta remains to be a proud father to his kids. He is supportive of Ella who has followed his footsteps and ventured into the acting industry. Two years ago, Travolta was asked whether he thought his daughter had the potential to be an actress.
“Yes, I want her to because she is so good at it. She is such a good performer,” he answered.
Call it father’s instincts, but what Travolta said is actually true. Ella was able to make it to Hollywood and landed a role in the film “The Poison Rose.”
Apart from staring in many films such as “Grease,” Saturday Night Fever,” “Pulp Fiction,” and many more, there is so much more many don’t know about Travolta. One thing is that he is actually a trained pilot, with a professional license. Travolta loves to fly and has five planes to practice on and fly around, including a Boeing 707.
In addition to his liking of planes, the multimillionaire also splurges on different properties in different states such as California, Maine, Florida, and Hawaii. His main mansion is in Ocala, Florida which has two runways for his planes.
“We designed the house for the jets and to have at our access the world at a moment’s notice,” he said.
Being an actor and a pilot show that Travolta is a dedicated and multi-talented person, but it does not stop there as he is also an author. The actor had his first book published in 1984, “John Travolta Staying Fit: His complete program for reshaping your body through weight resistance training and modern dance techniques,” and the second one in 1997, “Propeller One-Way Night Coach, A Fable for All Ages.
Certainly, Travolta is an all-around man and one of the greatest actors in Hollywood. Perhaps it’s his drive, his passion, and his motivation that keeps him going and striving for excellence. Perhaps it’s something else; but whatever it is, it’s working for him.
