Say HELLO! to Benjamin Travolta.
The newborn son of actor John Travolta and his Kelly Preston — born Nov. 23 — made his big debut on the new cover of Britain’s HELLO! Magazine and US weekly PEOPLE Wednesday.
“For us it’s been uplifting. Especially when he smiles at me and seems contented in my arms. He’s given the house a renewed spirit and purpose,” Travolta, 56, told the mag.
Ben is the second son for John and Kelly. The couple tragically lost their 16-year-old son Jett to a seizure in Jan. 2009. The family say that baby Ben has helped to ease the pain of their loss.
“All our memories are connected to Jett over the last 18 years – our photos, our homes, our travel,” says John. “It’s not something that will ever leave us.”
The Travoltas are also the paretns of a 10-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu, who just “can’t stop kissing” her new baby brother.
“She was elated to say the least,” says Kelly. “When she first saw him, she fell in love.”
