John Travolta and Kelly Preston have broken their silence since the death of 16-year-old son Jett earlier this year, USA Today reports.
In his first interview addressing Jett’s death, Travolta says that he and Kelly, along with their 9-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu, are far from being healed. But almost daily religious counseling sessions seems to be helping. “We’ve been working very hard every day as a family to heal. We have our own way of doing it, and it has been helping.”
Travolta says he has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from friends, fans and Hollywood colleagues. “You need your friends a lot in times like that,” the 55-year-old Pulp Fiction star says.
Travolta is opening up now in order to focus on Ella Bleu’s feature-film debut in Old Dogs – which Kelly and John also star – hitting theaters November 25.
We decided it was OK to come out and promote, to introduce her to the world and to give her a beautiful future in film,” Travolta says. Preston adds the “outpouring of love from, really, worldwide has been extraordinary. It’s been our friends, our family, our church. We partake in spiritual counseling pretty much daily. It’s a tricky thing,” she says. “Sometimes, something that’s right for the moment is not right the next day. Being with people who are important to you, being with people that you love, I think that’s what has primarily helped us the most. Sometimes, being alone, too.”

Levi Johnston is getting ready to take legal action to gain joint custody of 10-month-old Tripp – his only child with his 19-year-old ex-girlfriend Bristol Palin.
Bristol, daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, and Levi were engaged to be married before their relationship came to and end in March.
Levi told The Insider that he will be seeking joint custody at the end of November 2009 because the Palin family is apparently making it very difficult for him to see his child.
It’s not working. I’m done. It’s going to have to go to court. They just finally pushed me over the edge.
The relationship between the Palin family and the Johnstons has taken a particularly nasty turn over the last few months, especially after Levi’s Vanity Fair interview where he dished on the inner workings of the Palin household.
Sarah also voiced her opinion about her would-be son-in-law posing for Playgirl, saying, “Those who would sell their body for money reflect a desperate need for attention and are likely to say and do anything for even more attention.”

There is nothing like welcoming a new baby into the world. Whether you are a first-time parent or if you already have a child, having a baby is one of the most exciting and wonderful times in a person’s life.
Parenthood can be daunting however due to the countless books, articles and magazines on the subject. Family and friends who have been through this are often more than willing to offer their different (and usually opposite) opinions or pieces of advice. It can certainly get overwhelming!
Jenna McCarthy’s clever flip-cover book Cheers to the New Mom!/Cheers to the New Dad!: Tips and Tricks to Help You Ace the First Months of Parenthood is not a thick baby encyclopedia. This cute little hardcover reads like a chat with your best friend. Half is dedicated to moms and when you flip it over, the second half is for the dads. Filled with helpful tips, tricks and inspirational quotes, Jenna covers all the basics without becoming a bore. Her warmth, wit and wisdom shines throughout.
Cheers to the New Mom!/Cheers to the New Dad! would be a great gift for new parents. I know I would have appreciated it after my first daughter was born! Sometimes all you need is a few helpful tips and a bit of encouragement and Jenna delivers on both counts.
