Miracle babies: The Travoltas lead celebrity parents overcoming adversity to experience family joy

No one can help but be moved by John Travolta and Kelly Preston's recent baby news.

After tragedy struck and their 16-year-old son Jett died in 2009, they conceived a sibling for their daughter Ella.

"This is a miracle, and we feel blessed," said the couple.

The new baby was all the more exciting given that Kelly is 48 and the Hollywood heavyweight is 56.

Their much-needed joy came in the form of a little boy called Benjamin, born in November this year.

And, of course, this heart-warming story is echoed across Hollywood with many couples going through similar circumstances.
