John Travolta loves being a dad and says he can’t think of anything more fun than family time.
The 57-year-old actor and his wife Kelly Preston lost their son Jett in 2009. The next year, in November 2010, their son Benjamin was born. Travolta says they are slowly helping each other overcome their grief and that the arrival of the new member in the family is a good sign.
“It has been rough but you work hard at healing. Everything about having a baby is wonderful – holding him, singing to him, being with him and his sister. Just quiet family time. It’s the best, it’s pure joy,” he said.
“I get my inspiration from Kelly and our children. It’s all about the family I can’t think of anything more fun than family time. I am smitten with my family they are my priority,” he added.
Travolta says he is very fond of his own parents.
“I’m a bit of a pushover, I love being a dad. There’s no downside to it. My parents were so supportive of my sister, brothers and I, and I loved them for it. Now it’s my turn. I’ve learned a great deal from being a dad and hanging out as a family,” he said.
