John Travola Finds Fatherhood “Easier” Now

One month after the birth of his son Benjamin, actor John Travolta says that parenthood is proving easier this time around.

“We’ve been trying for a long time to have another baby, it’s been 10 years since I’ve had an infant in my hands. I’m pretty excited, jazzed,” the Get Shorty star tells Extra, adding, “It comes back, but it’s easier, because you don’t have the worries that you do when you’re a new father, so by the third, you’re ready to have six.”

The proud papa – and pilot – boasts that baby Benjamin has already had his first plane ride: “Yeah he’s flown from Florida to Maine, he’s had his first air trip with me as a pilot and he came into the cockpit, we got pictures of that.”

John and his wife Kelly Preston are also parents to 10-year-old Ella Bleu. Their 16-year-old son Jett passed away in 2008.

    Everyone in Hollywood knows that John is gay. I appreciate that he has a supportive female partner, who who bears his children, but in this day and age, I just wish he would live his authentic life as an openly gay man. What a great example he would be to his fan base and the youth of today to just be himself.

      I think it’s a huge assumption and ridiculous that you think he “should” come out. He shouldn’t DO anything. If he’s happy being married to a woman then so be it. It’s absurd when people think that a celebrity should have to do something like that to benefit the fans? Do you even realize what you’re saying?

      It could be possible that he is bi, have we forgotten that or must everyone prefer only one gender?

    The photo is way too close-up. You can see his hair plugs and stained skin from hair dye.
