Golden Globe Award-winning actor John Travolta paid tribute to his late wife Kelly Preston on her birthday.
On October 13, which would have been Kelly Preston’s 58th birthday, the ‘Grease’ actor uploaded a throwback photo from his wedding day in 1991 with Kelly Preston, alongside his parents’ wedding picture. He captioned the photo by addressing the iconic ‘80s actress:
“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.”
The actor referred that his parents and lovely wife were now together; as known, Preston passed away on July 12, 2020, at the age of 57, following a two-year battle with breast cancer. Travolta’s dad passed in 1995, and his mom died in 1978.
As might be remembered, Travolta confirmed his wife’s passing through a heartfelt Instagram post that reads:
“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. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many.”
The ‘Pulp Fiction’ actor continued:
“My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered.”
Travolta and Preston, the well-known model and actor, married on September 5 with a wedding ceremony at the Hotel de Crillon.
