John Travolta is a “pushover” when it comes to his kids

The 57-year-old actor has two children, Ella, 11, and six-month-old Benjamin, with his wife Kelly Preston, and he admits he has a laid back approach to parenting.
He said: “I’m a bit of a pushover, I love being a dad. There’s no downside to it. My parents were so supportive of my sister, brothers and I, and I loved them for it. Now it’s my turn. I’ve learned a great deal from being a dad and hanging out as a family.”
John and Kelly’s oldest son Jett tragically died at the age of 16 after suffering a seizure in 2009 and while it was devastating for the entire family, John says they are slowly helping each other overcome their grief.
He added to Britain’s OK! magazine: “It has been rough but you work hard at healing.
“Everything about having a baby is wonderful – holding him, singing to him, being with him and his sister. Just quiet family time. It’s the best, it’s pure joy.
“I get my inspiration from Kelly and our children. It’s all about the family I can’t think of anything more fun than family time. I am smitten with my family they are my priority.”
