John Travolta and Kelly Preston welcome baby boy
The couple welcomed their new son Tuesday at a Florida hospital, they said through a publicist. He's 8 pounds, 3 ounces.
"John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family. Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully," the statement said.
Travolta, 56, and Preston, 48, lost their oldest son, Jett, last year. He died of a seizure at age 16 while the family was in the Bahamas on Jan. 2, 2009.
