John Travolta, Kelly Preston have baby boy named Benjamin




Kelly Preston and John Travolta welcomed their third child Tuesday, a baby boy named Benjamin, People reports. Since the Ocala Star-Banner had to use wire copy, too, we won't be too sad we were late with this one.

"John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family," the couple said in a statement. "Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully."It's some good news for the family after 16-year-old son Jett died in January 2009.

Benjamin weighed 8 pounds, 3 ounces when he was born at an undisclosed Florida hospital. That's especially impressive, since Kelly is 48; John is 56, but no one really is worried about how he'll be pushing 80 when the kid is out of college.
