It was just a year ago that John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston dealt with the tragic loss of their son, Jett, and now they have mixed news in their lives. First off, John’s beloved two dogs were hit by a car and killed while they were walking at the airport in Bangor, Maine. Anyone who has lost a beloved pet knows how much that can hurt.
But now they have something to rejoice about – Kelly is pregnant with their third child!
While this is truly awesome and happy news, one has to wonder – is it wise for her to have a child at her age? She’s 47 – no spring chicken. Fortunately, these days, medical science has greatly enhanced the ability of women to have healthy children well into their middle ages. The actress Adrienne Barbeau had twins when she was 51, and her two boys have grown up fine. So, there’s nothing to say Kelly can’t have a healthy child as well.
She and John also have a ten year old girl, and she is said to be overjoyed at the prospect of becoming a big sister. We can only hope that they’re not just having this baby as a means of replacing their dear son. His death, last year in the Bahamas, was so very sad.
Based on recent pictures, Kelly can’t be too far along; so we’ll be able to watch her baby-belly grow in the coming months. Here’s hoping the family is blessed with only good news this year. It sure seems like they can use it.
