John Travolta is an "extremely proud" father as his 11-year-old son, Benjamin has reached a new milestone in his ninja training.
The 68-year-old Travolta posted a video on Instagram this week of his 11-year-old son climbing and swinging on a jungle gym. He captioned the video, "Ben just achieved a level 3 ninja and I am so proud." Many of his followers cheered him on in the comments.
It was the first time in April when 'Grease' star, Travolta showed a glimpse of his youngest child's ninja training on Instagram through a video and captioned it as "My Spider-Man Ben!" The video featured Ben making his way through a ninja course.
Similar to the video he posted in April, "proud" father John showed his son's progress with another video in May, calling it his "new best."
Travolta and his late wife, Kelly Preston shared three kids together: Ben, Ella, and their late son Jett. John's late wife, Preston, died in July 2020 after losing her battle with breast cancer.
Benjamin is the former couple's youngest son, whom they gave birth to in 2010, 10 years after their daughter was born. And their other son, Jett, who died in 2009 at the age of 16 while vacationing with the family in the Bahamas.
In the year 2021, Travolta told Kevin Hart that after his wife died, his son Benjamin was "afraid" that his dad would die as well.
"He said to me once, he said, 'Because Mom passed away, I'm afraid you're going to,'" the 'Saturday Night Fever' star recalled during a 'Heart to Hart' episode with Kevin Hart. “I said, ‘Well, it’s a very different thing. And then I went through the differences between my longevity and her limited life.”
The 'Pulp Fiction' actor has been very candid about how he approaches the topic of death with his children. as he told that he was honest with his son at the time, saying, “You always love the truth, and I’m going to tell you the truth about life. Nobody knows when they’re going to go or when they’re going to stay. Your brother left at 16. Too young. Your mother left at 57, and that was too young. But who’s to say?”
