John Travolta pays tribute to his late wife Kelly Preston on Mother’s Day

She died in 2020 after a private battle with breast cancer and John says he and the whole family miss her.

Mother's Day is a tough one for John Travolta.

The actor lost his beloved wife, Kelly Preston, back in 2020 and it's clear the mother of his children is sorely missed.

He's posted a video of her on the annual day to Instagram to show his followers how she is always on his mind.

The short clip shows Preston being gifted a box that had a big 'MOM' on the front of it.

He wrote in the caption: "Happy Mother’s Day Kelly. We miss you and love you! Love, Ben, Ella and John."

Fans rushed to the comments section to send their regards to John and his family.

One person said: "Your heart and her heart will always be connected! Happy Mothers Day sweet Kelly!"

Another added: "I don’t know why because I’ve never met either of you but this bring tears to my eyes."

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

Preston died following a two-year battle with breast cancer at the age of 57.

The news came as a huge shock to the world, who had no clue she was in the fight of her life.

A representative for the family released a statement on that day back on July 12, which said: "Choosing to keep her fight private, she had been undergoing medical treatment for some time, supported by her closest family and friends.

"She was a bright, beautiful and loving soul who cared deeply about others and who brought life to everything she touched. Her family asks for your understanding of their need for privacy at this time."

Preston appeared in a wide range of films and TV shows during her career, including SpaceCamp (1986), Twins (1988), Jerry Maguire (1996) and For Love of the Game (1999).

Her most recent film, Gotti, was released in 2018.

John and Kelly had three children together, Jett, Ella and Ben.

The family suffered an unbearable tragedy in 2009 when their eldest child, Jett, died at just 16 years old.

During a Christmas vacation in the Bahamas, the teenager suffered a seizure that ultimately led to his death.

Jett suffered seizures from time to time and the death rocked the tight-knit Travolta family.

John decided to set up a nonprofit organization to help children with special needs and called it the Jett Travolta Foundation.
