John Travolta is celebrating his big 70th birthday with his children and pet dog Peanut by his side.

The “Grease” star shared video clips from his birthday festivities on Instagram, including a video post featuring his son Ben, who turned 13 in November, hitting the slopes.

“This was my favorite birthday gift today. Seeing my son Ben ski to a new level! I’m so proud of him,” Travolta wrote.

In his Instagram story, Travolta also shared a video of himself blowing out seven candles on a frosted birthday cake, enjoying a cake slice and receiving a “birthday kiss” from Peanut, whom Ben adopted in 2022 after the dog appeared at the Oscars ceremony that year.
