J Travolta and wife Kelly Preston welcomed a baby boy named Benjamin on Tuesday.
The couple released a statement announcing Benjamin’s birth, “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.”
The family has been anxiously awaiting Benjamin’s arrival. In October, Preston spoke to People about the day she found out they were expecting, saying, “There were lots of tears - tears of joy. It was a moment that I’ll never forget. We’re so excited.”
She went on to tell the magazine about her preparation for the little one. “I’ve been cleaning out everything in the house,” she added.
The couple was married in 1991 and has a 10-year-old daughter, Ella. Their 16-year-old son, Jett, died in January 2009 after suffering from a fatal seizure while the family was vacationing in the Bahamas
