Actors John Travolta and Kelly Preston have a new guest for Thanksgiving dinner - 8-pound, 3-ounce Benjamin Travolta. A spokeswoman for the Travolta's told the Associated Press that the couple's third child was born at a Florida hospital November 23. Preston and baby Benjamin "are healthy and doing beautifully," the spokesman said.
The happy news comes almost two years since the Travolta's lost their son Jett in the aftermath of a seizure.
Travolta, 56, and Preston, 48, announced the pregnancy earlier this year, celebrating with a dozen close friends at a shower held at their Los Angeles-area home. "This baby is such a healing baby," a family friend told People Magazine.
The pregnancy was the first bit of good news they had shared in a long time. "It's impossible to keep a secret," they wrote in a statement on Travolta's Web site in May, "especially one as wonderful as this."
"We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family," the online statement continued and was signed "Love, John, Kelly and Ella."
