Ella Bleu Travolta, John Travolta’s daughter, wants to make sure her father knows how much he is loved on this special day.
On February 18, the star turned 69, and his 22-year-old daughter wrote a moving tribute in his honor over the weekend.
With his late wife Kelly Preston, whom he married in 1991, he has two children, Ella being the elder. His youngest child, Benjamin, is twelve years old. Jett, his first kid, died at sixteen in 2009. Kelly succumbed to breast cancer in 2020.
John’s daughter, an aspiring singer, shared their photo on Instagram to wish her father a happy birthday. The photograph vividly demonstrates how similar they appear.
“Yesterday marked the birthday of my hero, the most incredible father, friend, and role model anyone could ask for,” she added softly.
“I love you, Daddy,” she wrote, and John swiftly answered in the comments section with his poignant message to his daughter, writing: “I love you to my dearest Ella. More than you know,” along with an emoji of a crimson heart.
Ella’s fans sent heartwarming remarks to the father-daughter team and wished the Grease star a happy birthday.
“We all think your father is lovely and admire him. You are incredibly fortunate to have him as your hero and such a wonderful connection,” one person remarked, while others added, “Happy Birthday to your gorgeous Dad!! Your father is a national treasure, and you two are identical twins. Happy birthday, JT!”
Of course, some viewers couldn’t help but notice that Ella, in addition to her remarkable likeness to her departed father, shared qualities with her late mother and father.
“Ella, you have the same beautiful smile as your mother.” One fan wished his father a happy birthday, while another observed, “Wow, you look just like your mother. Very lovely! Happy birthday to your father.”
