In a new interview with Health, celebrity mom Kelly P reston spoke passionately about her most important role in life — that of mom to daughter Ella Bleu, 11, and son Ben, 8 months with husband John Travolta.
Kelly gushed: “I love being a mom. I’d keep having babies.” And she and John are not afraid to show their kids their love. She said, “I absolutely adore my kids. Johnny and I love them up constantly. Ella’s like, “Mom, ugh! Thank god you had Ben because now he can take some of the kisses!” And Johnny sings to them—a lot of Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand.”
She also said that she’s wanted to be a mom since she was a little girl: “I was an expert babysitter. I was doing commercials for thousands of dollars, but I’d still babysit for $3 an hour just because I loved it. I’m just in a good place, and am able to really be with my kids. It’s pretty amazing having a child at this age.”
And though she and John suffered so much since the loss of their son Jett, they have grown and learned along the way. Kelly added, “Don’t sweat the small things. Love your kids like it could be the last moment. Johnny and I really give our kids the space to discover who they are—to make their own choices and to experience the joys of life.”
