Kelly Preston was devastated after her 16-year-old son Jett's untimely death in January 2009, but the actress credits her husband, John Travolta, her family and close friends and - most importantly - her religion for helping cope.
She told Health magazine:
- "Johnny is definitely my rock. Kirstie (Alley) is one of my absolute best friends. My mom, my brother. And to be honest, the Scientology center. I don't know if I would have made it through without it. We've been able to navigate through it and to come to a place that is a lot better.
Also aiding in Kelly's healing was the birth of her son Benjamin Hunter Kaleo in November 2010. Though many thought her pregnancy came by surprise, the 48-year-old actress told the mag:
- "We [had been trying] for quite a few years. When I found out I was pregnant, I was floored. I'd snuck out of bed and then came back and woke Johnny up in bed. We both started crying. It was wonderful."
We're glad the Travoltas have been able to come out stronger after such a terrible tragedy. Plus baby Benjamin is adorable - who wouldn't smile when seeing that face?
Kelly also admitted to the mag that she loves being a mother more than anything - and if she had her say, she wouldn't stop with just Benjamin! "I love being a mom," she told Health. "I'd keep having babies."
