John Travolta proved he was ever the supportive dad as he spent Halloween with his son Ben on Sunday.

The Pulp Fiction star, 67, has been parenting alone since the loss of wife Kelly Preston in 2020.

And he relished his time with his almost 11-year-old, posting a smiling selfie of the pair on Instagram.

‘Happy Halloween everybody! What was your favorite candy bar growing up at Halloween?’

His 21-year-old daughter Ella took to the comment section to write: ‘Reese’s.’

In August, Travolta appeared on Kevin Hart’s Hart To Hart talk show, where he talked about discussing mortality with his youngest child.

‘He said to me once, “Because Mom passed away, I’m afraid you’re going to,”‘ Travolta said.

‘I said, “Well, it’s a very different thing.” And I went through the differences about my longevity and her limited life,’ the Hairspray went on. 

‘I said, “But you know, Ben … you always love the truth and I’m going to tell you the truth about life. Nobody knows when they’re gonna go or when they’re going to stay.”‘

Travolta had also endured the loss of son Jett, who passed in 2009 at just 16 after suffering a seizure.

‘Your brother [Jett] left at 16. Too young. Your mother left at 57. That was too young,’ Travolta recalled, referring to the loss of his and Preston’s son Jett in 2009 after suffering a seizure.

‘But who’s to say?’ he continued. ‘I could die tomorrow. You could. Anybody can. So let’s look at it like it’s part of life. You don’t know exactly. You just do your best at trying to live the longest you can.’

Travolta and Preston married in 1991 and were together until her passing.

He remembered his late love on what would have been her 58th birthday last month, sharing a photo of Kelly to his Instagram and writing: ‘Happy Birthday Kelly. We miss and love you very much.’
