Game of Thrones’ Diana Rigg, Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman, and Glee’s Naya Rivera are just a few names that Hollywood has lost this year. The iconic ‘80s actress Kelly Preston also passed away back in July, leaving behind her husband John Travolta and two of the three children they had had after she lost her two-year-long battle with breast cancer.
If she was alive today then the October of 13th would have been her 58th birthday celebration. This day was thus celebrated by her husband, John Travolta, who left a sweet Instagram post on this day of his wife and him on their wedding day.
He shared a picture of his wedding day back in 1991 besides the wedding photo of his parents. John Travolta’s father Sam also passed away in 1995, who was a semi-professional football player and his mother, who was not only an actress and a singer but was also a high school teacher, passed away in 1978.
Thus, it is quite apparent that the actor has lost a lot in his life, including the death of his own son, Jett, who passed of a seizure tragically back in 20019 during a family trip to the Bahamas. The picture shared by him was to share his fond memories of the family members that he had lost in his life. It was a sweet message and his fans did remember and honor his family members.
Kelly Preston was massively popular during the ‘80s having an illustrious career ahead of her. Both Travolta and Preston got to work together in Gotti where Preston was seen playing John Gotti’s wife Victoria. It is reported that her final movie would be Off the Rails, which is a comedy starring Judi Dench as well.
John Travolta now treasures his 20-year-old daughter named Ella and 9-year-old son named Benjamin.
