John Travolta and Kelly Preston welcome baby boy

Wednesday November 24, 2010

Kelly Preston and John Travolta had some happy news to share this week - they have added to their family with the arrival of a baby boy.

Little Benjamin was born in a Florida hospital on Tuesday weighing 8 lbs, 3 oz.

"John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family," says a rep.

"Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully."

John and 48-year-old Kelly decided to try for another baby after the tragic death of their son Jett, who died aged 16 after suffering a seizure in January 2009.
