by at . Comments

John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston are now the proud parents to son Benjamin, who was born Tuesday in a Florida hospital, weighing 8 lbs., 3 oz.

"John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family," the family said in a statement.

"Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully."

Congratulations to the new parents!

The 48-year-old Preston told People that the entire family was in major preparation mode for their new addition as her pregnancy neared its end.

"I've been cleaning out everything in the house," Kelly said in September. "Ella has been helping too. She's looking forward to being a big sister."

Their daughter, Ella, is 10. The couple's son Jett suffered a fatal seizure at age 16 in January 2009. We congratulate them on Benjamin's birth!
