John Travolta’s first poignant Christmas without late wife Kelly Preston

John Travolta shared a video of his children Ella, 20 and Benjamin, 10 celebrating their first Christmas since Kelly Preston’s death in July at age 57 after losing her private battle with breast cancer.

In the video posted to instagram Travolta directs his kids ‘Say Merry Christmas, Ella… Say Merry Xmas Ben’ from behind the camera as Ella and Benjamin stand in front of a majestic Christmas tree adorned with multiple presents.

Travolta and Preston married in Paris in 1991, after meeting in 1988 while filming “The Experts.” They had three children together daughter Ella, son Benjamin and Jett who tragically died at age 16 after suffering a seizure in the Bahamas in January, 2009.

Earlier this month Travolta celebrated Kelly’s birthday by sharing a photo of the couple on their wedding day together with a photo of his parents on theirs. Travolta wrote ‘Happy Birthday hon! I found this photo of my mom and dad’s wedding. It was nice to see ours alongside theirs. All my love, John.’
