John Travolta pays tribute to his late wife Kelly Preston on her birthday.
After a two-year struggle with breast cancer, actress Kelly Preston died in July 2020 at the age of 57, and her husband John Travolta celebrated her birthday on Instagram on Wednesday. The Grease actor captioned a photo of Preston taken at one of her final red carpet appearances, ” “Kelly, have a wonderful birthday. We adore and miss you terribly.” Travolta sat down for an interview with Kevin Hart in August, and he talked about how he told their 10-year-old son Ben about Preston’s death. Ben was scared that if Preston died, Travolta might as well, but Travolta explained the distinctions and how his mother died to his kid.

Ben then inquired about his father’s memories of events from 30 years ago. “‘Yes,’ I said. ‘Does 30 years ago feel like a long time?’ he asked. ‘Yes,’ I replied. ‘Don’t you believe you have 30 years left in your life?’ he asked. ‘I do,’ I replied. ‘I have at least another 30 years in me.’ ‘What’s wrong with that?’ he said.” Travolta recalled something. “That’s a ten-year-old telling me!
