John Travolta, Kelly Preston, & Ella: A Family To Heal

John Travolta, his wife Kelly Preston, and their 9-year-old daughter Ella Bleu arrive at the premiere of Walt Disney Pictures’ Old Dogs at the El Capitan Theater on Monday (November 9) in Los Angeles.

John, 55, and Kelly, 47, who also star in the movie, are making their first public appearance from relative seclusion since their son Jett‘s death. They showed their support for Ella who makes her acting debut in the comedy about two business partners placed in the care of 7-year-old twins.

In a recent interview, John shared with USA Today how the family is coping.

“We’ve been working very hard every day as a family to heal,” John said. “We have our own way of doing it, and it has been helping.”

“We decided it was OK to come out and promote, to introduce [Ella] to the world and to give her a beautiful future in film,” John continued at a round table discussion. 20+ pictures inside…

Nice family!

first! (not first anymore) @ 11/10/2009 at 8:44 pm

Ella Blue is very pretty and she looks so much like her daddy!

# 3

Looks like they are really focusing on their daughter and trying to make her feel extra special. It must be difficult to lose a sibling…I can’t imagine how Ella must feel to experience something so traumatic at her age.

I was hoping that they would leave the cult of scientology after Jett died for their daughter’s sake but apparently, that’s not going to happen. I guess David Miscaviage and Tom Cruise have too much on the Travoltas.

Now we know why Tom and Kelly ended up together in Jerry McGuire which, btw, was a pathetic movie.

Ella is so beautiful. She looks exactly like John. They all look so good. I wish them all of the love! Who really cares about Scientology. It’s their faith, and if it has helped them, then good for them. :-)

# 5

They are a beautiful family. God bless them!

# 7

Grrrr8!!! LOVE THEM!

# 8

Don’t be so paranoid, #3. Preston and Cruise starred in that movie because they tested well for the roles and they just happened to be Scientologists. It’s not like Cameron Crowe is a Scientologist.

Ella is a cute little girl and she looks just like her mother. Always has. It’s just her dark hair and the way theykeep it around her face that makes her look like John. Her forehead and eyes are exactly her mother’s.

What an absolutely GORGEOUS family. God (NOT Xenu) has given them strength to slowly heal from the death of their beloved Jett. I know he’s with them every day and is blessing them. Ella is beautiful and the perfect version of a mini Kelly and a mini John. I pray for them that they can find peace in their lives, thankfully they will have many wonderful memories of Jett to carry in their hearts every day. He will never be far from any of them.

She is pretty but sure is chubby, his son was also chubby. Must be in the genes.

Ella is such a beautiful girl but she’s too fat! It must be the trauma of losing her brother.
This girl needs to loose alot of weight if she want to me a actress like her dad.

Nice to see this family out. I know they must have struggled and still are over Jett’s tragic passing, but it’s nice to know that they are all coming together to support Ella. Ella is so cute btw, she looks so much like John.

I wonder if they all eat too much to numb the pain..it’s just not healthy to allow a child to become overweight…

they are an absolutely beautiful family. i wish them all the best, God bless them. <3

Unbelievable, Ella is exact copy of her dad :)

Aww I am so glad that he is looking a little happier. I feel so bad for that family, that has to be difficult. I hold them in my prayers.

Beautiful daughter

Why do parents put heels on a 9-year old?

It is idiotic people like you, who think she is overweight, that contribute to the influx of anorexic and dangerously skinny girls that our country is dealing with. Being dangerously skinny is NOT beautiful and it is NOT the norm. She is a healthy normal size.

A loving family is what’s most important during times of trial and tribulation. The pain never completely goes away, but it gets easier to bear with time. God bless them.

Kelly is such a beautiful woman! Lovely family.

Ella is beautiful ! I love John Travolta. Bless this family!
