On July 13th 2020, the actor confirmed that his wife, Kelly Preston, had died, aged just fifty-seven.

And, in this time, they shared 2 children: Ella, aged twenty, and Benjamin, 9.

John and Kelly tied the knot in 1991...

And they quickly became one of Hollywood's most loved couples.

But, throughout their marriage...

Kelly had helped her husband in more ways than you could imagine.

Aged only twenty-three, John was at the bedside of his first love, Diana Hyland...

When she too, died of breast cancer, just a year into their relationship.

It would be another twelve years until he met Kelly...

And their relationship would finally allow him to properly settle down and fall in love again for the first time.

However, in 2009, tragedy struck again.

John and Kelly's sixteen-year-old son, Jett, died suddenly after suffering a seizure while on vacation at Grand Bahama Island.

Jett's unexpected death rocked the whole family...

And, speaking in an interview in 2014, John described losing Jett as the "worst thing that’s ever happened in my life."

Kelly was suffering, too.

In an interview with Lifetime, she said: "Nobody should have to lose a child. It’s unfathomable. But I’m here to say that you can get through it. You can live again. You can want to live again."

But, despite her pain, she was a solid rock for her husband.

The couple remained strong and helped each other through the grief and, in 2011, they announced the birth of their baby, Benjamin.

Benjamin brought the Travoltas a new lease of life...

And, together, John and Kelly were able to move on from their grief.

So, of course, Kelly's death last year came as a huge shock...

And it has left a huge hole in John's life.

John shared the devastating news via Instagram...

He wrote: "It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife, Kelly, has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many."

He informed his fans that he would be taking some time to grieve with his children.

"Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while.  But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal."

Since his message, the actor has remained quiet on social media...

But now, he's took to social media to share a tribute...

The tribute is a birthday message to his late son, Jett.

It is the first year commemorating Jett's birthday without his wife.

Sharing a picture of himself and Jett, John captioned the post:
