Travolta Family, Hello Cover

Hello Magazine

The celebrity baby birth everyone was hoping would go off without a hitch thankfully did last fall, and now John Travolta and Kelly Preston are showing off the cute fruit of her (most likely silent) labor.

World, meet Benjamin Travolta!

Just shy of his two-month birthday, little Ben—born Nov. 23—is making his cover debut on not one but two magazines this week (People and Hello!), alongside his beaming parents.

"He's brought us a new beginning," John and Kelly told People, referring to the little tyke as their "miracle."

"He's given the house a renewed sense and purpose," 56-year-old papa John added.

He further exclaimed their happiness to Hello!, saying, "For us it's been uplifting. Especially when he smiles at me and seems contented in my arms."

As for the birth, it did indeed go smoothly, with Travolta holding the 48-year-old Preston's hand throughout the whole of her labor.

The couple's daughter, 10-year-old Ella Bleu, was also present, albeit outside the delivery room. She was being watched over by the family's close pal Kirstie Alley, who was also present for the occasion.

The duo also shared adorable details of their new lives in Ocala, saying their days and nights are now filled with multiple readings of Good Night, Gorilla and dad crooning one of his favorite lullabies, "A Bushel and a Peck."

However, both parents told People that the best moment from little Ben's life so far has been sharing his first smile. Awww. Um, is that some dust in your eye? Yeah, ours, too.
