Sixteen months after the tragic death of their son, John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston have announced they are expecting a baby.
The actor (56) announced on his official website that Jerry Maguire star Preston (47) is pregnant and is due in the autumn.
The new arrival will be the couple's third together. They already have a daughter Ella Bleu (10), while their 16-year-old son Jett died last year.
In a statement the family said: “It’s impossible to keep a secret ... especially one as wonderful as this.
“We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family. Love, John, Kelly and Ella.”
Preston has never made a secret of her desire to have another child.
She said a few years ago: “I thought I would get pregnant when Ella was about four. Then I wanted to work a little bit more, and all of a sudden she's seven. I'm not pregnant now, but I don't have another movie project; that's all I'll say.”
Preston is thought to be three months pregnant, although the couple haven't officially revealed the baby's due date.
