Bringing joy to their lives just in time for the holidays, John Travolta and Kelly Preston welcomed a baby boy named Benjamin yesterday (November 23).
According to a report, little Benjamin is doing well, and weighed in at 8 pounds, 3 ounces at a Florida hospital.
John and Kelly released a statement, saying, “John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family. Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully.”
Earlier this month reports told that the “Pulp Fiction” actor, who was in the Land Down Under for the 90th anniversary of Qantas airlines, made a premature return home as Miss Preston was said to have gone into labor a bit sooner than planned.
The Herald Sun reported that Travolta quickly loaded aboard his personal Boeing 707 to make the long trip back to the States upon receiving the news.
The couple had expected their newest family member to arrive on November 26th, which is just a few days short of today’s date.
The arrival of Benjamin is even sweeter considering that the Travolta family lost their son Jett to a fatal seizure back in January of 2009.
