May 19, 2010— -- Just when it seemed things couldn't get any worse for the Travoltas, the couple announced some good news -- that they are expecting a baby.
John Travolta, 56, and Kelly Preston, 47, disclosed the news Tuesday on their Web site, overshadowing the reports that their two dogs had been killed last week in "an unfortunate accident" on the tarmac of Bangor International Airport in Maine.
Their announcement comes just over a year after their 16-year-old son Jett died after suffering a seizure in the Bahamas on Jan. 2, 2009.
"It's impossible to keep a secret," they wrote, "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."
