While John Travolta has not found love again since the tragic passing of his wife of 29 years, Kelly Preston, there is one woman who seems to have a strong place in his heart – his stunning daughter, Ella Bleu Travolta.

The actor has long enjoyed a very close bond with his daughter, so it’s no surprise that when he celebrated his 69th birthday in Las Vegas last weekend, he wanted 22-year-old Ella by his side.

The father-daughter duo jetted off to the Sin City together, alongside some of his friends, and they had a glamorous weekend filled with dinners in five-star restaurants, tickets to some of Las Vegas’ coveted shows, and of course, gambling in the city’s famous casinos.

At just 22, Ella has already taken major strides in her career. Not only has she made waves in the modeling industry in recent months – attending numerous New York Fashion Week events last fall in a slew of stylish looks – but she is also a successful actress and singer too.

She landed her first role on the big screen when she was only nine years old – thanks to her famous father – and she has since gone on to star in numerous movies and shows. 

She also stepped into the world of music, releasing her first single last year – and her father couldn’t be more ‘proud’ of how far she has come.

Doting dad John has continuously gushed over Ella on social media, and has cheered her on every step of the way.

While Ella has certainly accomplished a lot, she didn’t have the easiest childhood. She tragically lost her older brother, Jett, when she was just nine years old – after he had a seizure and hit his head on the bathtub.

She then suffered from another devastating blow when her mother, Kelly, passed away from breast cancer in 2020.

Despite being plagued with heartbreak and loss throughout her upbringing, Ella has continued to prevail – and she has become a strong force in numerous industries.

John and Kelly were together for 29 years before Kelly passed away at age 57 in July 2020, following a two-year battle with breast cancer.

In April 2021, John opened up about grieving the loss of his wife to Esquire Magazine, explaining that every one has a ‘different path’ while mourning.

‘Grief is personal and finding your own path is what could lead to healing. It’s different than someone else’s journey,’ he said.

‘The most important thing you can do to help people going through grief is allow them the space to live it and not complicate their journey with your own.’

During an appearance on Kevin Hart’s show Hart to Heart, he also spoke out about a very hard conversation he had to have with his then-young son Ben, who was 10 at the time, regarding his mother’s passing.

He explained that Ben voiced concerns that John would die too, to which he told him, ‘It’s a very different thing.’ 

‘I went through the differences about my longevity and her limited life,’ John recalled. 

‘I said, “But you know, Ben … you always love the truth and I’m going to tell you the truth about life. Nobody knows when they’re gonna go or when they’re going to stay.”

‘Your brother [Jett] left at 16. Too young. Your mother left at 57. That was too young. But who’s to say? I could die tomorrow. You could. 

‘Anybody can, so let’s look at it like it’s part of life. You don’t know exactly – you just do your best at trying to live the longest you can.’
