You won’t believe when you know that John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s first marriage was completely illegal…

Travolta continued by saying, “She answered, ‘I adore it,’ and I thought, ‘Wow, wouldn’t it be fantastic to be married to someone who enjoys being married?’” Travolta is married to actress Kelly Preston. Unfortunately for Travolta, Preston was already married to the actor Kevin Gage, thus she had no desire in having a romantic involvement with him.

Even after over two years have passed after Preston’s passing, Travolta and his children have continued to remember her.

The marriage between Preston and Gage lasted until 1987 when it finally came to an end. Prior to beginning a romance with her current partner, the actress was previously engaged in two prior partnerships. Their love for one another was profound, and it was only a matter of time before they announced their engagement and began planning their wedding.

In 1991, on New Year’s Eve, John Travolta proposed to Kelly Preston with a six-karat yellow and white diamond ring at the Palace Hotel restaurant in Gstaad, Switzerland. The restaurant was located in Switzerland. The couple did not delay in beginning their wedding preparations for very long after they had been engaged.

Before Preston’s loss, she married John Travolta twice before he passed away. On September 5, 1991, the Hotel de Crillon in Paris played host to the very first wedding ever to take place there. During this time period, Preston was about two months along in her pregnancy with the couple’s first child.

On the other hand, the actress eventually disclosed that the marriage had been unlawful all along due to the fact that a Scientology minister had been present throughout it.

In addition, Preston noted that in order for the pair to be married in a legal way in Paris, they needed to have lived there for around four to five years. Therefore, the couple decided to elope once again, this time choosing Daytona Beach, Florida as the location for their nuptials.

A few short months after their wedding, Preston and Travolta became parents for the first time to a boy whom they named Jett. The little youngster was diagnosed with a number of health conditions, including autism and Kawasaki illness, which led to inflammation of the arteries. Unfortunately, the boy’s condition worsened with time.

Despite the challenges that came with caring for a sick kid, the happy couple persevered and, a few years later, added another member to their family. In the year 2000, they became parents to Ella Bleu, but only nine years later, they had yet another devastating loss.

In 2009, the family was on vacation in the Bahamas when the corpse of Jett, who had just passed away, was discovered in the bathtub. After experiencing a seizure, he had fallen and struck his head on the tub, which ultimately led to his loss. Travolta, who had a tight connection with his son, who is now 16 years old, was dealt a significant blow by the news.

The actor and his wife persevered through their sadness and attributed their ability to do so to their trust in Scientology, which helped them cope with the loss. The loss of Jett only served to heighten Preston and Travolta’s desire to have a new family, despite the fact that Preston was getting closer to her forties at the time.

They were unsuccessful on several occasions, but on November 23, 2010, they were blessed with a boy named Benjamin, whose name means “son of the right hand.” The birth of the kid provided the family with hope and assisted them in recovering from the loss they had suffered. Benjamin was seen by the pair as a “wonder kid” and a “fresh beginning” when they first saw him.

Following a courageous fight against breast cancer that lasted two years, Preston passed away on July 12, 2020, according to a message that John Travolta published on Instagram. Although the late actress continued working while undergoing treatment in seclusion, her fight against cancer remained a well-guarded secret throughout her lifetime.

Preston had written a message on Instagram wishing her husband a good father’s day in the days preceding prior to her loss. The post was published on Instagram. It was a sad occasion, as it turned out to be the final time the actor would celebrate with his lovely wife.

After Preston’s passing, Travolta expressed his gratitude to the medical professionals and friends who had worked to try to preserve the life of the actress. He also said that he would be stepping away from the limelight for a period of time to focus on his family, particularly his son Benjamin, who was nine years old at the time.

Even after over two years have passed after Preston’s loss, Travolta and his children have continued to remember her. The actor speaks highly of his late wife and does his best to instill an upbeat outlook in his children, which is reflected in the activities they participate in on a day-to-day basis.

Ella Bleu is haunted by the memory of her mother’s loss. Nevertheless, she is shown resilience, most notably in her professional life. She has performed on stage with her father in a number of plays during the course of her acting career. In addition, on January 7, 2022, she released her first song under her own name, titled “Dizzy.”

In the meanwhile, it seems like Benjamin is doing well considering that he has been pictured with his father on other major events such as Halloween. It would seem that the family is making every effort to do great things while honoring Preston’s memory.
