John Travolta has a new son

Almost two years after the death of their teenaged son, Jett, John Travolta and Kelly Preston have had another baby boy, named Benjamin.  The baby is a healthy eight pounds and everyone is doing fine, a spokeswoman reported.

The Travolta family are about due for some good news, as not only did they lose their firstborn son to a seizure in the Bahamas in January of 2009, but they had to deal with a $25 million extortion attempt against them while they were grieving, and then they also lost their two dogs earlier this year as a result of a fatal accident in an airport.  Let’s hope the curse is broken now and they can move forward with their lives
