Kelly Preston gave birth to baby son Benjamin on Tuesday, with husband John Travolta.

Preston, 48, had been planning for a completely silent birth, in accordance with Scientology principles. The baby was born in a Florida hospital weighing 8 pounds, 3 ounces. "John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family," they said in a statement. "Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully."

Preston and Travolta, 56, have been married since 1991. They lost their son Jett just over a year ago when he suffered a seizure in the Bahamas. Travolta has been on hiatus from acting to focus on the birth of his son. –AMY LEE
