Ella is one of three children that Travolta had with his late wife, Kelly Preston, who died in July of 2020 after a battle with breast cancer. As a result, the touching Instagram post falls on Ella’s first birthday without her mom there to celebrate with her.

The couple also share 10-year-old son Ben and were parents to Ella’s older brother, Jett, who tragically died after suffering a seizure in 2009 at age 16.

Travolta’s post to his daughter is also dad’s payback for an equally touching post she shared about him in February on his 67th birthday.

“Happy Birthday to the most incredible man I have ever known. You are not only the best Dad ever, but you are also my best friend,” she wrote at the time.
