John Travolta never ceases to celebrate life and important events with his kids.
Many of us post pictures and videos with our loved ones on the New Year. Our favorite celebrities are no different. Pulp Fiction star John Travolta, 68, and his daughter Ella, 22, shared a message for New Year and captioned the post, "Happy new year everyone!" In the short clip, Travolta and his daughter said, "We love you, and Happy New Year," per PEOPLE. Actress and friend Sharon Stone commented on the post: "Love you too".
This comes after an insider told National Enquirer that John finds it “extremely frightening and upsetting” to have lost some important women in his life to cancer. The actor was left devastated after his close friend Kirstie Alley died following a secret battle with colon cancer earlier this month. Before this, Travolta lost his first love, Diana Hyland, to breast cancer in 1997. Then a year later, the same disease claimed his mother Helen Cecilia’s life. The source said, "The most important women in John's life have been taken from him by cancer. It's a curse that seems to haunt him and his family." The actor’s wife Kelly Preston also died of breast cancer in 2020, following which Travolta "finds himself looking at the women left in his life and praying that the same curse doesn't take them away from him too."
Yet, Travolta never ceases to celebrate life with his kids. Recently, he also wished his fans Christmas in another reel along with Ella and his 12-year-old son, Ben Travolta. The actor shares Ben and Ella with his late wife Kelly Preston, who died at age 57 in July 2020 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. The couple was also parents to son Jett before he died at age 16 in 2009. Travolta's Christmas clip included Ben's dog Peanut perched on his knee, and his children wishing fans a happy holiday. "Merry Christmas everyone!" he captioned the video.
A month earlier, Peanut had made an appearance in the family's Thanksgiving video and made everyone chuckle. As Peanut jumped onto Travolta and kissed him. The rescue pup—previously named Mac N Cheese—was prominently featured in the 94th Academy Awards tribute to Betty White. The dog was held at the center stage by Jamie Lee Curtis as she celebrated White's dedication to animal rights during the In Memoriam segment of the Oscars last year.
John shared the adoption news last year with a photo of Ben holding the pup, in which the star smiled behind them. "Ben adopted this dog from last night's Oscar tribute to Betty White. Thank you @curtisleejamie & @pawworks," John wrote in the caption.
