John Travolta and Kelly Preston lost their 16-year-old son, Jett Travolta to a seizure last year. His death was followed by an investigation into bribery charges from Bahamian officials. Then subsequently their two small dogs were run over at Bangor Airport by a service vehicle while a minder was walking them.
But now there's also some happy news to report, thank God. Preston is pregnant with their third child.
"It's impossible to keep a secret ... especially one as wonderful as this," the couple says in a statement. "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"
The family shared the happy news Tuesday (May 18) on Travolta's and Preston's Web sites.
Travolta, 56, and Preston, 47, are also parents to Ella Bleu, age 10.
