Actress Kelly Preston, who recently appeared in the Nicholas Sparks‘ film The Last Song, announced Tuesday that she is expecting her third child with husband John Travolta. Preston, 47, is due in October.

The two suffered the tragic loss of their oldest son, Jett in January 2009. After his death, Travolta and Preston told press that their son suffered from autism — a disease not acknowledged by the couple’s religion, Scientology.

Both suffered another loss last week when their dogs were struck and killed by an airport truck in Bangor, Maine. Their breeds and names were not reported. –ELENA COX
