John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston have announced she is expecting a baby - and they are overjoyed with the news.

Travolta, 56, and Preston, 47, said: 'It’s impossible to keep a secret ... especially one as wonderful as this.

'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.'

The Travoltas' daughter Ella Bleu is now 10, but the couple were struck by tragedy when their 16-year-old son Jett died of a seizure in January 2009.

The family shared their new baby news on John's website, travolta.com.

Fantastic, congratulations!
