In the caption of his post, the actor reiterated his recorded message. The "Welcome Back, Kotter" star expressed his gratitude for the “amazing birthday wishes” and thanked his followers further for:

The #DoTheScottsSlide contest that Travolta mentioned was one he took part in with his daughter, Ella Travolta, 20. The duo recorded themselves while dancing together for a Super Bowl LV advert.

The initiative was done to help advertise for Scotts Miracle-Gro. The star-studded advert started with Emma Lovewell, Martha Stewart, Kyle Busch, and Leslie Baker before ending with the Travolta’s.

The star’s daughter also took some time on her father’s special day to wish him well. Taking to Instagram, she shared a photo of herself, her father, and her younger brother, Benjamin, 10.

Kelly Preston passed away in July 2020, at age 57, after a private two-year battle with breast cancer.

She credited the “Saturday Night Fever” actor as being more than just the best father and her best friend. Ella thanked him for raising her and her brother and loving them.

“I love you Daddy. I had the best time celebrating your birthday with you yesterday."
