The latest issue of Star announces that John Travolta and Kelly Preston are having a baby—news that the Travoltas have confirmed on their official website with this statement: "It's impossible to keep a secret...especially one as wonderful as this. We are expecting a new addition to our family."
Star calls this John and Kelly's "miracle baby," and we can imagine that this third child is a miracle for the couple in more ways than one. At 47, Kelly might have thought that she'd never have another child, and there are a lot of people who will think that she's "too old" to get pregnant. But while the risks to baby and mother do slightly increase with age, there are plenty of women in their 40s who've given birth to perfectly healthy children.
This new baby may also help to heal some of the strain that John and Kelly's relationship suffered after the death of their son Jett last year. Not that they will ever forget Jett, but a new baby will require all of their focus and help them, along with 10-year-old daughter Ella Bleu, to move forward through their grief.

Star's source reveals that "Kelly is about three months pregnant. Both she and John are absolutely over the moon—they knew in their hearts that the time was right for this to happen."
We wish the Travoltas all the best, and can't wait to meet the big-blue-eyed addition to their family!
