Travolta speaks about baby son

John Travolta says new son Benjamin has brought him great joy

John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston have opened up about their baby Benjamin, calling the boy "a new beginning".

The couple, whose 16-year-old son Jett died two years ago, described his birth as "nothing short of a miracle".

In an interview with People magazine, the Grease star said: "For us it's been uplifting.

"He's given the house a renewed spirit and purpose. He's brought us a new beginning, and his presence has brought joy to all the people who have wanted the best for us."

John and Kelly showed off their baby in a photo shoot for the magazine, which shows the beaming family all dressed in white.

Jett died from a seizure-related injury in 2009 while the couple were on holiday in the Bahamas.

"I don't think there is any time that we don't think about him," John said.

"All our memories are connected to Jett over the last 18 years -- our photos, our homes, our travel. It's not something that will ever leave us."

John will next month pick up Germany's Golden Camera award for best international actor, an achievement he has described as a "huge honour".

When in doubt, talk to a trusted friend. They'll give you an honest assessment of this bond. A relative may ask to come to their rescue. Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
