John Travolta and Kelly Preston: Expecting!

by at . Comments

John Travolta and Kelly Preston, who lived through the tragedy of losing their teenage son Jett last year, can now announce the best news they've had in years.

Kelly is pregnant at age 47!

"It’s impossible to keep a secret ... especially one as wonderful as this," they say in a statement. "We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone."

"We are expecting a new addition to our family. Love, John, Kelly and Ella." Travolta, 56, who broke the news on his site, and Preston are also parents to Ella, 10.

Here's the cute, soon-to-be-growing family ...

John, Kelly and Ella are expecting a new baby.

Jett Travolta died of a seizure in January 2009 at age 16. The tragedy was even harder for the family given the extortion plot against them stemming from it.

We couldn't be happier for them today, though. Nothing can bring back the child they lost, but to bring another into the world is always a magical experience.

Congratulations to the Travoltas!
