Inside John Travolta's Relationship With His Daughter Ella

While not all parents have great relationships with their children, that is thankfully not the case for John Travolta and his kids. Travolta, along with late wife Kelly Preston, has welcomed three children into the world: Ella, 20, Ben, 10, and Jett, who died in an accident in 2009. The Grease actor is very vocal about his love for his children, frequently sharing pictures and sweet tributes to them on social media. In particular, Travolta shares a special bond with his daughter, Ella, and the two consistently showcase some sweet father-daughter moments. 

Over the years, we've watched Ella grow up and blossom into the young woman that she is today. Of course, along the way, she's shared some heartfelt moments with both of her father, often referring to him as the most "selfless" man that she knows. The father-daughter duo have a whole history of cute moments together — let's take a closer look into their endearing relationship. 

John Travolta has a close-knit relationship with daughter Ella

Over the years, John Travolta has proudly showcased his children on the red carpet, social media, and during interviews. According to ET, Ella Travolta has accompanied her father to movie premieres and events since she was just two years old — from a Qantas Airlines press conference to the premiere for Hairspray, Ella was there alongside her proud parents. 

Of course, Ella has also faced her fair share of embarrassment from her father. In 2020, Ella shared a throwback photo of her alongside Taylor Lautner, saying that John "embarrassed" her by telling Lautner that Ella was "researching all about him on the Internet." And then, in a 2019 episode of The Talk (via ET), John also admitted to being a bit "ridiculous" when he watches Ella work on a film set. "I'm behind the camera mouthing every word she says, doing her moves," the doting father laughed. 

In February 2021, John and Ella teamed up once again, this time for a hilarious Super Bowl ad that included an iconic dance reference to Grease, one of his biggest films. Clearly, John and Ella Travolta have a solid relationship together, so we can expect plenty of cute and wholesome moments in years to come. 

John Travolta helps promote his daughter's projects

In some ways, John Travolta is just like any other proud father when it comes to his daughter Ella Bleu. Whenever the young creative announces a new project on her social media or makes a new artistic debut, Travolta can't help but gush about her all over his own Instagram page. Sometimes he even makes cameo appearances — like showing up for an extremely cute moment in Ella's video announcing her single "Dizzy" on Instagram. 

Ella posted a short video of herself singing the song in several short snippets edited together on Instagram. At the end of the video, Ella is joined by her father, who sings along to the words with her. The video ends with Ella planting a sweet kiss on her dear old dad's cheek, which he returns. And of course, John posted the same video to his own Instagram, writing in the caption, "I'm so excited for Ella! Her song, 'Dizzy,' is out right now! The link is in my stories and bio!" Clearly, these two have a pretty special bond. 

John Travolta has also supported Ella's modeling career

Ella Travolta may have gotten her musical talents from her famous "Grease" star father John Travolta, but she also inherited his good looks. Unsurprisingly, John has pumped up his daughter's modeling successes with as much enthusiasm as he has for any of her other career wins. After making her New York Fashion Week debut walking the Karl Lagerfeld runway show, Ella's dad posted to Instagram, "So proud of Ella's debut at fashion week in New York City!" He also commented on Ella's own Instagram post, writing, "I'm so proud of you," with a heart emoji. 

As a matter of fact, Ella is all over her dad's Instagram. In October 2021 he wrote on his page, "Happy Father–Daughter Day Ella! I love you more than words can express!" And in July 2021, he promoted another one of her projects on his social media, writing, "Here's my daughter Ella starring in a live action re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland! Called, 'Get Lost.' I'm a very proud dad!"

In 2019, John gushed about his daughter to People. "She's so amazing, and so unlike what you think a teenager, the cliché of a teenager," he said. "She's different, and she's gracious, and she's lovely, she's well-mannered, and she's thoughtful, and it's authentic ... She reminds me of an older movie star. Another era. So I'm very proud of her."
