Along with Ella, Preston and Travolta share son Ben, 11. The couple's older son Jett died at age 16 in January 2009.

The Grease actor also honored his late wife on Thursday, sharing a throwback photo of the pair smiling for cameras at an event as they shared a sweet embrace.

Travolta, 68, wrote in the Instagram caption, "Happy birthday to my favorite dance partner!"

"We love you and miss you Kelly," added the actor.

Travolta and Preston, who died of breast cancer at age 57 in July 2020, were married for 28 years before her death.

The actor's tribute to his late wife came five months after he posted a sweet message to Preston in honor of Mother's Day. Sharing a video featuring a montage of photographs of Preston, the clip also showed images of the pair's three children and Travolta himself.

"We love and miss you Kelly. Happy Mother's Day 💐❤️," Travolta captioned the post at the time.

"I've learned a lot from all of the strong and powerful women in my life, I thank you all for being such wonderful role models," Ella captioned her own Mother's Day tribute. "I miss and love you, mama."
