American actor John Travolta celebrated his 67th
birthday on Thursday. This also was, incidentally, his first birthday since his
late-wife Kelly Preston’s death. Rather than assuming a gloomy and depressing
exterior, however, the day for Travolta got significantly uplifted as his daughter
Ella surprised him with a gift, it is safe to say, he was not expecting.

As per various media reports, Ella Travolta and her
brother Benjamin surprised their father with a rather emotional birthday
message alongside a family photo, as per various media reports.

The photo displays Travolta sitting, embracing both
Ella and Benjamin at their much younger ages.

“Happy Birthday to the most incredible man I
have ever known. You are not only the best Dad ever, but you are also my best
friend. Thank you for raising us, helping us and loving us and thank you for
all of the good you do every day. The world is so lucky to have you and so are
we. I love you Daddy. I had the best time celebrating your birthday with you
yesterday”, Travolta’s message displayed.

John Travolta lost his wife in July, 2020, after Preston’s
two-year battle with breast cancer.

A seemingly emotional turn came in the actor’s life,
as he put forward his $5 million house in Maine – brought about 30 years back
with Preston – for sale.
