John Travolta and Kelly Preston are Expecting a Baby

According to CBS News, Kelly Preston, 47, wife of John Travolta, 56, has confirmed rumours that she is pregnant. The story first broke in the gossip magazine Star. Preston is apparently already three months along, with the baby due in November.

The news is being widely celebrated in the media after a rough year for the Travoltas. In January 2009, their 16-year-old son, Jett, collapsed and died after having a seizure at the family’s vacation home in the Bahamas and last week, two of the family’s dogs were killed after being hit by a truck at an airport in Maine.

Confirmation of the news came in the form of a statement on Preston’s website, saying, “It’s impossible to keep a secret – Especially one as wonderful as this.”
