John Travolta has shared a heartbreaking tribute to his late son, Jett, who died in 2009 following a tragic accident.
The memorial post marks his first year commemorating his late son’s birthday without his wife Kelly Preston.
And it has everyone in tears…
Now, we all know John Travolta as the incredibly charismatic and charming award-winning actor.
After all, he is Danny Zuko.
But over the last couple of years, the star has had an unimaginable time…
On July 13th 2020, the actor confirmed that his wife, Kelly Preston, had died, aged just fifty-seven.
And, in this time, they shared 2 children: Ella, aged twenty, and Benjamin, 9.
And they quickly became one of Hollywood’s most loved couples.
Kelly had helped her husband in more ways than you could imagine.
When she too, died of breast cancer, just a year into their relationship.
And their relationship would finally allow him to properly settle down and fall in love again for the first time.
John and Kelly’s sixteen-year-old son, Jett, died suddenly after suffering a seizure while on vacation at Grand Bahama Island.
And, speaking in an interview in 2014, John described losing Jett as the “worst thing that’s ever happened in my life.”
In an interview with Lifetime, she said:
“Nobody should have to lose a child. It’s unfathomable. But I’m here to say that you can get through it. You can live again. You can want to live again.”
The couple remained strong and helped each other through the grief and, in 2011, they announced the birth of their baby, Benjamin.
Benjamin brought the Travoltas a new lease of life…
And, together, John and Kelly were able to move on from their grief.
So, of course, Kelly’s death last year came as a huge shock…
And it has left a huge hole in John’s life.
“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife, Kelly, has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many.”
“Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal.”
Since his message, the actor has remained quiet on social media…
But now, he’s took to social media to share a tribute…
The tribute is a birthday message to his late son, Jett.
It is the first year commemorating Jett’s birthday without his wife.
Sharing a picture of himself and Jett, John captioned the post:
“Happy birthday my beautiful Jetty. I love you.”
