John Travolta's Easter Video With His Kids Is Melting Hearts

Following tragedy within their household, John Travolta has developed a special bond with his children Ella Travolta and Benjamin Travolta. The actor's youngest, Benjamin, was born less than two years after the death of his son Jett Travolta. At the time, John and wife Kelly Preston were reinvigorated by the birth of their third child together. "He's given the house a renewed spirit and purpose," the "Pulp Fiction" star told People in 2011. Raising a family was paramount for the celebrity couple. "Our children keep our interest in life very high," John told Us Weekly in 2019.

Ella followed in her dad's footsteps to pursue a career in acting, and John was beaming with pride when discussing his daughter. "She is her own person," he told People in 2019. "I don't know how she came to be, and I don't take any credit other than just adoring her," John added while gushing over Ella's wonderful personality.

After Preston's death from cancer in 2020, John's relationship with his children became even tighter. The "Saturday Night Fever" star spoke frankly to Benjamin about death. "Nobody knows when they are going to go or when they are going to stay," John recalled while on the "Hart to Heart" podcast with Kevin Hart in 2021 (via ET Canada). "You just do your best at trying to live the longest you can," he told Benjamin. The actor often posts family snaps on social media, but on Easter, he uploaded an especially heartwarming tribute from the Travoltas. 

A certain celebrity helped the Travoltas get a new dog

To celebrate Easter, John Travolta uploaded a short video to Instagram. Ella Travolta held a stuffed bunny while Benjamin Travolta had an adorable pooch in his arms showering him with kisses. The family wished everyone a happy holiday, and Ella laughed as her younger brother tried to contain his new furry friend. Followers flocked to the comment section of the touching family clip. "[N]o wonder you always look content," rocker Sammy Hagar replied. "Beautiful family!! Happy Easter to you and your lovely kidds!" one fan wrote. "What a lovely family," another added.

Jamie Lee Curtis took notice of Benjamin and his doggo. "OH MAC 'N CHEESE IS SO HAPPY!" she wrote. Curtis was instrumental in helping the Travoltas adopt their newest addition only weeks earlier. The "True Lies" star worked with Paw Works to find forever homes for a group of rescue dogs, which involved bringing little Mac N' Cheese to the Academy Awards, per People. John took an instant liking to the pooch and held him for over 30 minutes while at the star-studded event, and eventually adopted him. On March 28, the "Swordfish" actor posted a photo to Instagram of his son holding the dog, and gave a shoutout to Curtis in the caption.

Season's greetings are common from the Travoltas. For Christmas 2021, the actor posted another family clip to Instagram as Ella and Benjamin sat in bed alongside an unsettled dog as John read them a story.
