According to People Magazine, John Travolta and Kelly Preston, who have lived through the tragedy of losing a son, can now announce the best news they’ve had in years.

Preston, 47, is pregnant, one year in a half after the death of their eldest son Jett, who died of a seizure in January 2009.

“It’s impossible to keep a secret … especially one as wonderful as this,” they say in a statement. “We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family.

Love, John, Kelly and Ella”

Travolta, 56, and Preston are also parents to Ella Bleu, 10.

The family also shared the news Tuesday on Travolta’s Web site and Preston’s site.
