Less than six months after his wife died Kelly Preston, John Travolta shared a video of his children on Instagram she, 20 and Ben, 10 celebrate Christmas on Instagram.
The Grease star shared the video on December 25th. It shows Ella and Ben in front of a Christmas tree, surrounded by presents.
“Say Merry Christmas,” John says in the video, to which Ella and Ben respond. “Merry Christmas!” with smiles and waves.
This year is sure to be different for the Travolta children, who lost their mother Kelly in July after a two-year battle with breast cancer. The actress, who appeared in films like What a Girl Wants, Sky High, and Gotti alongside her husband, was 57 years old.
John shared the sad news “with a heavy heart” in a long Instagram title.
“She fought a brave battle with the love and support of so many,” he shared alongside a photo of Kelly. “My family and I will forever be grateful to their doctors and nurses at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, to all of the medical centers who have helped, and to their many friends and loved ones who have been by their side. Kelly’s love and life always will be.” Remember. I’ll take some time to be there for my children who have lost their mothers. So forgive me in advance if you haven’t heard from us for a while. But please know that I am yours Feel the outpouring of love for the coming weeks and months as we heal. “
