FAMILY DYNAMIC

66-year-old Travolta is the father of two children, Ella Bleu, 20, and Benjamin, 10. He shared his children with his late wife Kelly Preston, to who he was married for 28 years.

Preston and Travolta also had an older son, Jett, who tragically passed away at 16 in 2009. Preston died in July 2020 after a two year battle with cancer, which left Travolta and his family devastated.

FIRST OF EVERYTHING

Travolta and his family have been navigating through the first celebrations and festivities without their matriarch. The actor took to Instagram on what would have been Preston's 58th birthday to celebrate the day without her.

He posted a photo from their wedding day alongside his parents' photo on their wedding day as a tribute to his late wife. The "Hairspray" star captioned the post:

Happy Birthday hon! I found this photo of my mom and dad‘s wedding. It was nice to see ours alongside theirs.

SHARING THROUGH THE STRUGGLE

Travolta has invited his 3.3 million Instagram followers to join him and his family on the journey of figuring life out without his wife. He shared about their first Thanksgiving and Christmas on his social media feeds.

After Thanksgiving, the actor used his platform to thank his fans for their support and love during his time of mourning. Travolta became emotional in the video as he showed his appreciation.

Regardless of the difficulties and loss that Travolta and his family have had to face over the last year, they still managed to put a smile on everyone's faces with their stellar dance moves.

The "Grease" legend continues to spread happiness despite his own struggles and keeps the lightning alive with the next generation jiving alongside him.
