What a perfect family! John Travolta stepped out at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday, May 15 with his wife, Kelly Preston, and their two kids, daughter Ella, 18, and son Benjamin, 7 — and we can’t believe how grown up John and Kelly’s children are!
For the special event in honor of John and Kelly’s upcoming movie Gotti (Ella and Benjamin must be so proud of their famous parents), John donned a black tuxedo with a white shirt and black bowtie. Oh, and we can’t forget about how handsome he is with his gray hair for his role of the late mobster John Gotti. Kelly — who plays John’s wife in the film, too! — looked stunning in a black strapless ball gown.
But it’s their kids who really stole the show! Ella looked stunning in a black and white patterned shirt with a black cardigan over it and a black flowy skirt to go with it. We think she looks so much like her famous dad! Benjamin looked adorable in his white pants, white graphic T-Shirt, and navy blue blazer.
John and Kelly previously wed in 1991 and welcomed Ella in 2000 and Benjamin in 2010. They were also parents to a son Jett, who sadly died in 2009. In a previous interview, John opened up how little Benjamin helped them deal with their difficult loss. “Certainly having little Benjamin has been a beautiful kind of glue for us to re-bond after a tremendous loss,” he once said.
After the death of his son, John admitted things were very difficult for him — and thanked Scientology for helping him make it through. “The truth is, I didn’t know if I was going to make it. Life was no longer interesting to me, so it took a lot to get me better. I will forever be grateful to Scientology for supporting me for two years solid, I mean Monday through Sunday. They didn’t take a day off, working through different angles of the techniques to get through grief and loss, and to make me feel that finally I could get through a day,” he told BBC News.
We’re glad John is feeling better today — and we can’t wait for more family outings!
