Actor John Travolta honored his late wife Kelly Preston on her post-humous 58th birthday with a heart-melting tribute and touching throwback photo from their wedding day.


Kelly Preston remains sorely missed by her husband John Travolta, and their children, but they have chosen to happily celebrate her legacy every chance they get.

On what would have been her 58th birthday, Travolta took to Instagram to honor his late wife with a sentimental and heart-melting post on Instagram. The "Pulp Fiction" star shared a collage of he and Preston's wedding photo alongside that of his parents.

A young Travolta and Preston looked so in love as they held hands and smiled for the camera. The happy bride was clad in a strapless gown and had her curly hair extend underneath her veil and frame her face. The moving caption read:

"Happy Birthday, hon! I found this photo of my mom and dad's wedding. It was nice to see ours alongside theirs. All my love, John."


The lovely photo was liked thousands of times and received several thoughtful comments from Preston's well-wishers and fans who sent prayers to her grieving family.

Preston died on July 12 after a difficult and private with breast cancer that lasted for two years. A spokesperson for the family shared the news via a statement where the "Gotti" actress was described as "a bright, beautiful and loving soul."


She was survived by her children daughter Ella, 20, and son Benjamin, 9, alongside Travolta, whom she married on September 5, 1991. The couple's first son Jett passed away in January 2009 at 16.

Travolta and his two children have been navigating the hurt of Preston's demise, taking things one day at a time, and trying to remain positive and joyful amid the pain.


More than a month after Preston's death, Travolta broke his social media silence with a tear-jerking video of him and Ella dancing in an empty bar to one of the late actress's favorite songs.

The 66-year-old and their kids have also had to rely on loved ones and friends to get through the trying period. In September, the Golden Globe winner shared a photo of them hanging out with Tommy Lee and his family as they enjoyed lovely outdoor lunch.
