John Travolta Celebrates 'Most Beautiful' Daughter Ella On Her 21st Birthday With Sweet Post
Apr 06, 2021 by apost team
It's been almost 43 years since the hit movie "Grease" rocked the worlds of people across the globe and made John Travolta, 67, the superstar that he is today. John Travolta went on to have a decades-spanning career, but it's hard to forget him as Danny Zuko in "Grease"—the black-haired stud who broke the hearts of women all over the world. After marrying fellow actor Kelly Preston, who herself was a bombshell of her time, the couple had daughter Ella Bleu Travolta back in 2000.
2020 was a long year for everyone but especially the Travolta family, who lost their matriarch in July, following a battle with breast cancer. Since then, John Travolta has made a few public mentions of the family's loss, as has his lookalike daughter Ella Bleu Travolta. The Travolta family celebrated their first Christmas without Preston last year.
The family has been grieving, but slowly and steadily, they've been showing that they're moving on in life, with Preston's memory firmly in their minds. John Travolta has always been a proud dad, but especially in the last year, John has proven himself to be a true family man who's always there for his two children Ella Bleu Travolta and Benjamin Travolta.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the well-known actor took to social media on his daughter's birthday to shower her with praise and affection. In an Instagram post published on Saturday, April 3, he wished his daughter a happy birthday and paired his well-wishes with glowing compliments coming from the heart.
John Travolta has been in the spotlight since the 1970s, having graced the screen in many classic movies, including "Grease" and "Saturday Night Fever," through to his famed comeback in the 1990s in "Pulp Fiction", "Get Shorty," "Face/Off", and many more. His late wife Kelly Preston, who tragically passed away from breast cancer at the age of 57 in July 2020 was also a well-known actress, starring in such movies as "Jerry Maguire" and "For the Love of the Game."
The couple started spending more time together, and soon enough, Preston and Travolta married in 1991 and had babies on their minds. Over the following years, their children Jett, Ella Bleu, and Benjamin were born. Tragically, however, Jett Travolta passed away in 2009 at the age of 16 due to an unexpected seizure and resulting fall. This, together with Preston's untimely death in 2020, means that the Travolta family is no stranger to tragedy. In the light of this, it is completely understandable that the remaining children and their father have formed a very close bond.
Despite the hardships the family has faced, they still find time to spend together and have fun, like in the Superbowl commercial earlier in 2021. Father and daughter teamed up for a musical advertisement appearance in their lush, green backyard, re-creating the famous hand jive that John was known for in 1978.
Ella Bleu, now 21-years-old, has followed in her famous parents' footsteps and begun working as an actress. And considering her looks — coming from both of her parents — it's no surprise Ella Bleu wants to work in show business. Speaking with People last year, she stated,
"Since I was very little, I’ve loved performing, singing, dancing, and putting on shows at home for my family and friends."
She already made her acting debut all the way back in 2009 in the movie "Old Dogs," which also starred both of her parents, as well as Robin Williams. Ella Bleu told Celebrity Pulse, "It was awesome to act with my parents in my first movie, it made it a lot easier." Since then, she's starred with her father once more in the movie "The Poison Rose." The father-daughter duo's working relationship seems to be a very positive and good one.
The Instagram post on her birthday once again showed how proud John is of his successful daughter. The post featured a photo of Ella Bleu smiling at something or someone off camera, while the caption reads: "Happy 21st birthday to the most beautiful, kind, human being and artist I know. Your dad adores you! ❤️"
Many fans and family friends chimed in on the social media platform to offer their own well-wishes and comments. This included actress Sharon Stone, who called Ella a "stunner," and well-known musician Tommy Lee, who wrote: "Happy bday not so much kiddo..."
Ella Bleu published a similar post roughly two months back, when she took to Instagram to offer her best wishes and kind words to her father on the occasion of his birthday.
Her very open and heartwarming post read: "Happy Birthday to the most incredible man I have ever known. You are not only the best Dad ever, but you are also my best friend. Thank you for raising us, helping us and loving us and thank you for all of the good you do every day. The world is so lucky to have you and so are we. I love you Daddy. I had the best time celebrating your birthday with you yesterday. ❤️❤️❤️"
