John Travolta Kelly Preston Expecting Baby Boy

John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston are expecting a baby boy, a rep for the actress told PEOPLE Magazine Wednesday.

In May, Travolta, 56, and Preston, 47, announced that they are expecting their third child: “It’s impossible to keep a secret … especially one as wonderful as this,” the couple said in a statement at the time.

The baby’s anticipated due date has not been reported. The couple hosted a baby shower at their Florida home earlier this month.

The Travoltas are already parents to a daughter, Ella Blu, 10. However, tragedy struck the couple in Jan. 2009 when their autistic 16-year-old son Jett died after suffering a head injury during seizure while vacationing with the family in the Bahamas.

John and Kelly have been married for the past 19 years.
