On Sunday, people celebrated Father-Daughter Day with some of their loved ones. This also includes Hollywood actor John Travolta and one of his three kids, Ella Travolta. The 21-year-old posted a sweet photo of them appearing on a talk show together.
She captioned the photo, “Happy Father-Daughter Day to my hero, my best friend. I love you so much Daddy.”
John Travolta and Ella Travolta Holidays
Ella is the daughter of John Travolta and Kelly Preston. The two were married for years until Preston’s devastating death in July 2020.
They first became parents when they had their son, Jett, in 1992. They then had Ella in 2000. They also had a third child, Benjamin, who is 10. Sadly, the Travoltas suffered a devastating loss when their eldest son died while on a family vacation in the Bahamas when he was only 16.
The family is often public about their love and admiration for one another. John Travolta took to social media in April to wish his daughter a happy birthday. It was her first birthday since her mother passed away.
“Happy 21st birthday to the most beautiful, kind, human being and artist I know. Your dad adores you!” he wrote. The post was filled with comments from several other celebrities as well.
The sweet tribute came only two months after Ella was quick to wish her Hollywood star father a happy 67th birthday. “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,” she wrote.
Sweet Past Moments Between Family
The two have quite the iconic relationship, after all. You may remember seeing the two recreate a memorable scene from his classic 1978 movie, “Grease.” It appeared in a Super Bowl commercial. Over the years, she has also made plenty of red carpet appearances and has also been in interviews with her father.
The two appeared in a joint “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” interview in 2019. The two shared the story of the time Ella’s celebrity crush was coming over to the house, Taylor Lautner. Ella and her friends were looking up pictures of the “Twilight” star before he arrived. John Travolta proceeded to embarrass her in front of Lautner later on.
“And then Taylor gets there and his family as well, so I was researching about them too, just to learn. Then, the first thing [my dad] says to them is, ‘Oh, Ella was just looking you guys up on the internet,'” Ella shared while on the show.
