JOHN Travolta shared an emotional post online, honoring what would have been his late wife Kelly Preston’s birthday.
The 67-year-old actor posted on Instagram: “Happy Birthday Kelly. We miss and love you very much.”
The special message was accompanied by a photograph of a smiling Kelly waving to fans on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018 .
Kelly died on July 12, 2020, after a two-year secret battle with breast cancer. She was 57.
At the time, John paid tribute to his wife’s “courageous fight.”
The Pulp Fiction star said: “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.”
Kelly’s death came 11 years after the couple’s eldest son, 16-year-old Jett died in 2009 after a seizure at the family’s Bahamas holiday home.
The two also shared daughter Ella, 21, and son Benjamin, 10.
Just over a year later, Kelly’s final film, Off the Rails, premiered.
“Off the Rails is Kelly’s last film,” John shared online at the time. “She was very proud of it and of all of the wonderful talent that she got to work with in it.”
Fans paid tribute to a life cut short as well.
Commenting on John’s Instagram post, one user said: “Happy Heavenly Birthday beautiful Kelly.”
Another speculated: “She’s celebrating with the angels.”
A third promised to keep her memory alive: “We will always remember (you) with love.”
