Kelly Preston anything but silent about birth of baby Benjamin
"I just think any time you get pregnant at this age, it is a miracle," said Preston, 48, on the "Today" show Wednesday for her first TV interview since she had her baby with hubby Travolta, 56. (See the full clip below.)
The couple had been trying for another child for three years and Preston said it was exciting for her to have another baby, especially after they lost their 16-year-old son Jett to a seizure in 2009.
"We were sort of blessed with being lucky to still conceive," Preston said.
Speaking of gentle -- Preston again opted for a traditional Scientology-style silent birth.
"It's just no words as much as possible. If you need to moan, if you cry out or all of that, of course, is normal," she said. "But just bringing them in as peaceful and gentle a way as possible."
Another man Preston was swooning over: "Casino Jack" costar Kevin Spacey, saying he was the reason she continued filming the drama about Jack Abramoff after Jet’s death.
"At that point I didn’t really want to go back to work," she said. "But every day, he's so naturally funny he made me laugh, and that was the greatest gift he could have given to me while we were working."
