Travolta and his late wife Kelly Preston, who died in 2020, shared three children: their late son Jett, daughter Ella Bleu and son Benjamin.

Travolta, who turned 70 in February, loves to spend time with his children, especially during special occasions and holidays.

In a June 2023 Instagram post, Travolta marked Father's Day with a family snapshot of himself with Ella and Ben, along with their family dog.

Travolta called fatherhood a "privilege" in yet another Instagram post back in June 2022.

Here's what to know about the "Hairspray" star's children, whom he often posts about on social media.

Ella Blue Travolta was born on April 3, 2000.

On her most recent birthday, her 24th, she was celebrated by her dad on Instagram, in a video showing the pair driving in a vintage car.

"Happy birthday Ella. I love you. Your dad!" the elder Travolta wrote in the accompanying caption.

Ella has followed her father into acting and modeling. In 2021, Travolta and Preston's second child also embarked on a music career.

Both Ella and her dad previously collaborated in 2009 on the song "Every Little Step," which was included in the soundtrack for "Old Dogs," in which the elder Travolta starred alongside Robin Williams.

Ella Bleu's latest single is the track "Dizzy," a remix of which first began as a TikTok challenge. It was released in 2023 as a collaboration with the band Just Seconds Apart.

Travolta's late son Jett died in 2009 at the age of 16 following a seizure he had while the family was at their vacation home in the Bahamas.

Travolta shared a tribute to Jett on what would have been his son's 30th birthday back in April 2022.

"My dearest Jetty, I miss you more than words can say," Travolta wrote at the time. "I think about you everyday. Happy Birthday. Love, your Dad."

In April 2024, Travolta honored his late son with another birthday tribute on Instagram.

Alongside a sweet throwback photo of him, Jett and his late wife Kelly Preston, the actor wrote in the caption, "Happy birthday my Jetty - not a day goes by where you’re not with me!"
