John Travolta pays tearjerking tribute to late wife Kelly Preston on Mother's Day

The actor took to Instagram to share a heartfelt tribute to his late wife Kelly Preston on Mother's Day

John Travolta has paid a tearjerking tribute to his late wife, Kelly Preston, on Mother's Day.

The Grease star, 69, took to Instagram to share with his 4.8 million followers a heartfelt post with the emotional throwback video.

Fans have since flocked to share their words of condolences for the actor and his family during this difficult time. Have a look:

Travolta uploaded a video of Preston, who passed away of breast cancer at the age of 57 in July 2020, earlier today (14 May).

The pair were married for nearly three whole decades, after tying the knot in 1991, before her tragic death from 28 years after.

They are also parents to Ella Bleu, 23, Benjamin, 12, and Jett who died at age 16 back in 2009.

The video in question showed the mom-of-three open up a Mother's Day gift box before smiling and posing with it as Travolta filmed in the background.

She can be seen beaming from ear to ear as she opened up a box featuring a 'Mom' label, before lovingly admiring the handmade gifts inside.

Preston can be heard saying: "Oh my god! But first I want to hold it like this."

He captioned the short clip: "Happy Mother’s Day Kelly. We miss you and love you!

"Love, Ben, Ella and John."

The video tribute, posted just a few hours ago, has since received well over 160k likes, with thousands upon thousands of comments from fans eager to send their condolences and words of support to the Pulp Fiction icon.


One Instagram user commented: "Your heart and her heart will always be connected! Happy Mothers Day sweet Kelly!"

"I don’t know why because I’ve never met either of you but this bring tears to my eyes," penned a second.

A third wrote: "This is so gorgeous John. How lovely of you to share with us."

A fourth empathized: "Sometimes it is very difficult to see our loved ones on video when they are gone."

"She is shining down on her favourite people," offered another.

"Pure beauty inside and out," posted a sixth, "sending love to you and your family."

A final fan added: "She was just so beautiful. It gives me so much joy to see her like this."

RIP Kelly Preston.
