On July 12, 2020, John Travolta shocked the world with news that his beloved wife, actress Kelly Preston, had lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. The announcement came as a shock to most because it wasn’t public knowledge that she was sick.

She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many,” he wrote on Instagram.

Every “first” after a loved one passes is difficult. This past weekend marked the first Mother’s Day since Preston’s death. Travolta paid tribute to his late wife with two photos on Instagram. The first photo is of the couple with their daughter Ella and son Benjamin, while the second is of them with their son, Jett, who passed away in 2009.

Dearest Kelly, you brought into my life three of the most wonderful children I have ever known. Thank you. We love and miss you,” he wrote. “Happy Mother’s Day.”
