John Travolta celebrates Easter with daughter Ella and son Benjamin and newly adopted four-legged family member Mac N Cheese: ‘Happy Easter everyone’

John Travolta spent Easter with his two beloved children and the newest member of their four-legged family.

On Sunday, the two-time Oscar-nominated actor took to his Instagram page and posted a video of himself with the kids – Ella, 22, and Benjamin, 11

‘Happy Easter everyone!’ Travolta, 68, captioned the clip showing him and Ella holding on to a giant Stuffed Easter Bunny as Ben snuggled up with their new pet dog Mac N Cheese, which they just adopted last month.

Travolta’s longtime friend and co-star Jamie Lee Curtis, who helped organize the rescue puppy’s adoption, were among those who commented on the holiday post.

‘OH MAC ‘N CHEESE SO HAPPY!’ he spouts, referring to the family’s seemingly loving interaction with the gold-colored dog.

Just a few weeks before, Mac N Cheese displayed during the 94th Academy Awards tribute to Betty White to honor the late Hollywood star’s dedication to animal rights and charity.

After Mac N Cheese was in the spotlight with Curtis, Travolta met up with the pup backstage, and began bonding with him for about half an hour.

The next day, his son Benjamin went through the adoption process with the animal rescue organization Paw Works.

Within those 24 hours, the Travolta family had a new four-legged family member.

‘Ben adopted this dog from last night’s Oscars for Betty White. Thanks @curtisleejamie & @pawworks,’ the appreciative actor announced in an Instagram post that included a photo of himself with Ben and Mac N Cheese.

Just four days before Easter, the Pulp Fiction star wished his late son Jett Travolta a happy birthday on Instagram.

‘Dear Jetty, I miss you more than words can say. I think of you every day. Happy birthday. Love your daddy,” he wrote in the caption.

Jett was just 16 years old when he died after suffering a seizure during a family vacation in the Bahamas. The teenager had been diagnosed with Kawasaki disease as an infant and had a history of seizures.

The mother of the Travolta children was his late wife Kelly Preston. A successful actress in her own right, she died in July 2020 after being diagnosed with breast cancer two years earlier.
