In July 2020, tragedy struck as his wife of 28 years, Kelly Preston, lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of 57. Since then, Travolta has endeavored to stay strong for their two children, daughter Ella and son Benjamin.

The Travolta family had previously experienced profound loss when their 16-year-old son Jett passed away in January 2009 after suffering a seizure while on vacation in the Bahamas. This heartbreaking event deeply affected Travolta and Preston.
