John Travolta and Kelly Preston welcome baby boy

John Travolta and Kelly Preston have welcomed a new son, named Benjamin, into their family. The baby was born in a Florida hospital Tuesday and weighed 8 lbs. 3 oz. “John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family,” they said in a statement through spokeswoman Samantha Mast. “Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully.” Preston earlier spoke to People magazine about Ella Bleu looking forward to being a big sister. Benjamin is John and Kelly’s third child. Their first son, Jett, died tragically in January 2009 at the age of 16 from a seizure while the family was on holiday.

    Birth is a wonderful experience. Its to bad the baby will be subjected to the outragous cult religion of scientology….poor little guy.

    Yeah, so did Kelly let out a peep? I’m sure she didn’t cause it was smooth and painless. I bet they can’t wait to show the child they love it and care for it..must be exciting to wait even longer to show more affection towards the baby. I bet they are going over lullaby songs right now and rehersing for when they can sing it to sleep. Bet that’s exciting. (ALL SARCASM)

    I hope this new baby brings them much happiness.

    wonder if they are talking to him yet……. maybe they should put the baby in a closet so it can be safe from the big bad world. Then he could never have anything that would torment him for the rest of his life. He could just live happily in the quiet, darkness of his closet.

    to be honest, they think they had this child to replace the kid that died a little while ago. Anybody else.

    Mandee, they are Scientologists meaning NO drugs or talking due to newborns being vulnerable to induced a mental image picture containing pain and trauma transmitted from their mother or acquired from their environment. Basically scientologist do not want their newborns first moments in a heightened tramatic environment of the mother in pain because the child will grow up remembering this as it could affect the child later in life. The result could be jumping on a couch, trying to jedi mind trick a guy who throws a pie in your face or believe our real ancestors are watching us from the dark side of Mars. Are you a scientologist? It would explain a lot.

    Funny, that religion was created by a man. Go figure. Let’s see Hubble give birth.

    Why are people so mean in their comments? I’m not a fan of scientology but I cannot imagine the grief and anguish of losing a child as they did so recently and my heart goes out to them as parents. I wish them and their daughter the greatest happiness with their new baby.
