- May 8th was Mother's Day in North America
- Travolta shared an emotional video on the occasion
- The actor honours his late wife Kelly Preston
Mother's Day was celebrated on May 8th, and the stars also paid tribute to the moms in their lives! John Travolta and his children had to spend the occasion without Kelly Preston for the second time, as the actress died of breast cancer in 2020. On Instagram, Travolta commemorated his wife with an emotional video.
Travolta reflects on family life with Preston
"From me to you" can be read at the beginning of Travolta's nearly five-minute long video. What follows is a look at the family's private photo album. This includes pictures of Travolta himself, along with his wife Kelly and their children Ella Bleu, Ben, and their late son Jett, who tragically died at 16 years old.
Barbra Streisand's song "That Face" can be heard playing while snapshots of the family over the years are featured. At the end of the clip, Travolta also included a sweet message for Preston. "Happy Mother's Day with all my love, Johnny," he wrote. The last two years have been difficult for the family as they have had to celebrate many holidays without Preston.
Travolta also briefly reflected on Preston's loss in his caption. "We love and miss you Kelly," it reads. In the video, the family remembers the beautiful but far too short time they had with their mother and wife. Travolta had been married to Preston since 1991. The couple's first son, Jett, died from a seizure in 2009.
