John Travolta and Kelly Preston have welcomed a new addition to their family.  Their son, whom the couple named Benjamin, was born Tuesday in Florida, weighing in at 8 pounds and 3 ounces.

Both mother and son are doing great, “The family is ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family” said their publicist.

In September Kelly Preston gave an interview to PEOPLE stating she was in her nesting mode. She said, “I’ve been cleaning out everything in the house, Ella has been helping too. She’s looking forward to being a big sister.”

This is the third child for the couple (John Travolta and Kelly Preston) of 19 years.  Travolta and Preston have a 10-year-old daughter Ella, their son Jett who was autistic, sadly passed away unexpectedly in 2009 from a seizure while the family was vacationing in the Bahamas. He was 16 years of age.

John Travolta, 56, Kelly Preston, 48, took the death of their son pretty hard, as to any other parent who suffers a lost of a child.  Kelly’s mother Linda Carlson stated to US magazine that both parents were “longing for another baby, the pregnancy has taken Kelly and John out of such deep grief and made them able to focus on new life,” Carlson added. “It just couldn’t come at a better time.”

We congratulate the happy couple and wish the whole family the very best!
