John Travolta has been talking candidly about his new baby son Bejamin, who he believes has helped his whole family have a new beginning. John and wife Kelly tragically lost their 16-year-old son Jett two years ago when he suffered from a fatal seizure while on a family holiday. John says the new arrival has uplifted them all, and made it possible for them to start over:

“It’s been uplifting. Especially when he smiles at me and seems contented in my arms. He’s given the house and renewed spirit and purpose. He’s brought us a new beginning and his presence has brought joy to all the people who have wanted the best for us.”

Kelly added that Benjamin was a blessing for the family after the couple spent three years trying to conceive another child:

“We tried for three years and feel blessed that it finally happened. It’s one of the most fulfilling things a person can experience in life and I have had the joy of experiencing it with three amazing children. Being a mother makes me the happiest.”

John believes that their new son looks like Jett, and is a reminder of him:

“Like Jett, he definitely looks like his daddy, but every day he changes and often we can see his mother in him.”
