John Travolta shares a photo with his son Jett († 16)

John Travolta, 67, commemorates his late son Jett, † 16, on his birthday with an emotional Instagram post. The Hollywood star shares a sweet black and white photo on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, in which he smiles lovingly at his beaming son. The fact that water can be seen in the background suggests that father and son enjoyed a trip to the lake together. “Happy birthday, my wonderful Jetty. I love you,” were the actor’s touching words about the photo. Jett Travolta died at the age of only 16 during a family vacation in the Bahamas in January 2009 after his head hit the bathtub after a seizure. He was born autistic and with Kawasaki Syndrome, a rare disease in which the arteries become inflamed and which particularly affects children.

His birthday is for the first time without Travolta’s wife Kelly Preston, † 57, at his side. She passed away in July 2020 after being diagnosed with breast cancer two years earlier. The two actors were married for almost 30 years. In 1991 they had said yes. They became parents to three children, Jett, Ella Bleu, 21, and Benjamin, 10.

Newly in love? Ana de Armas spotted with an unknown man in LA

This end of love should have surprised many: At the beginning of the year Ana de Armas, 32, and Ben Affleck, 48, split up. On paparazzi snapshots, the two had always seemed very much in love and there was even speculation about an engagement. But that is history now and de Armas seems to be in the dating mood again!

The “James Bond” actress was recently spotted with an unknown man in LA. Images, the “Page Six” are available, show the actress and her companion taking their dogs for a walk in the Hollywood Hills. In other photos, they are having a coffee together – and they seem very familiar with each other. The actress has not yet commented on the rumors.

But why did the relationship between the 32-year-old and the Oscar winner break up? According to insiders, several factors should have played a role. She is said to still love Ben, but she has no longer seen a future together with him, because they are said to have had different ideas about future and child planning.
