August 23, 2020

John Travolta and his daughter Ella put on a heartwarming performance in a touching tribute to Kelly Preston.

The “Grease” star, 66, and his daughter, 20, shared a dance in memory of their late wife and mother in a video posted to Travolta’s Instagram.

“My daughter @ella.travolta and I dancing in memory of momma. One of Kelly’s favorite things, dancing with me,” the actor captioned the video.

In the clip, Travolta can be seen twirling Ella twice as the two share a gentle dance on the dancefloor.

Kelly Preston died in July after a two-year battle with breast cancer that the family chose to keep private. She was 57.

Her death certificate revealed that she died at the family’s home in Clearwater, Florida before her body was transferred to a funeral home.

Travolta confirmed the sad news of his wife’s passing in an Instagram post.

“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer,” he wrote. “She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many.”

Preston starred in movies that included “Jerry Maguire,” “For the Love of the Game,” “Twins,” “Gotti,” and “Battlefield Earth.”

She and Travolta weathered the death of their son Jett, who died at 16 after a seizure he had while on family vacation.

In addition to Ella and Jett, Travolta and Preston are parents to son Benjamin, 9.
