Preston fought breast cancer for two years, but she kept her condition a secret from the general public. She passed away after a “brave struggle” with the disease.
By September of 1991, the couple had tied the knot, first in the country of France and later in the Sunshine State of Florida.
After that, the couple spoke about starting a family, and Kelly said, “We intend to have some kids”.
Jett, their first son, was born with a condition that falls within the autism spectrum, and at the age of 15 months, he was given a diagnosis of Kawasaki illness. When he was two years old, he first showed signs of experiencing seizures.
Let’s go forward in time to the year 2000, when their daughter Ella Bleu was born. Before the terrible event, the family of four was enjoying a wonderful time together. After experiencing a seizure on January 2, 2009, Jett passed away from his illness.
In 2011, the family was given some cause for celebration with the birth of Benjamin, who became their second son. During that time, Travolta gave an interview and said that he and his wife’s newborn boy had “given the home a revitalized energy and purpose.”
But, sadly, tragedy struck their happy family not too much longer after that, as Preston passed.
In the Instagram post in which he made the announcement, Travolta announced that he would be dedicating more time to spending with his family, writing:
“I’ll be spending some time with my children, who have just lost their mother, so please bear with us if you don’t hear from us for a while. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
But please be certain that I shall experience your love after we have both recovered from this wound in the weeks and months ahead.”
