"Baby Ben, our miracle"

He has his father’s piercing blue eyes and his mom’s sweet smile and is a natural in front of the camera.

Although he’s just shy of three months the latest addition to the Travolta family has proved in his first photoshoot that he’s just like his famous parents.

In some photos he laughs; in others he delivers a heart-melting pout and in many he simply stares at his parents as they tenderly hold his little hand.

It’s not surprising that Benjamin Travolta has such star quality – his mom and dad are Hollywood A-listers John Travolta and Kelly Preston. 

The couple are glowing with pride as they introduce the boy they call their miracle to the world for the first time.

“He has given the house a renewed spirit and purpose,” John (56) says. “He’s brought us a new beginning and his presence has brought joy to all the people who have wanted the best for us. It has been uplifting.”

Benjamin, or Ben as his parents and sister Ella (11) call him, was born on 23 November.

“As soon as I found out [I was pregnant] I woke Johnny up,” Kelly (48) says. “We both cried. Then we told Ella – she was the first to know. We found out early that it was a boy.”

The couple were delighted about the pregnancy, following a difficult period after their 16-year-old son,Jett, died of seizures while on holiday in the Bahamas in 2009.

According to reports they had been trying for a while to have another child – and in May last year they happily announced Kelly was expecting.

Ella was over the moon when she heard she was going to have a sibling, John says. “When we first told her Kelly was pregnant you would have thought Ella was having the baby because of her eagerness over his arrival.”

It was love at first sight for Ella, Kelly adds. “She can’t stop kissing and cuddling her new baby brother and keeps saying, ‘Oh, he’s so cute’. She holds him and is mommy’s helper. She’s very good at it; she’s a wonderful big sister.”
