Recently, it was reported that John Travolta and Kelly Preston would be naming their yet-to-be born baby boy Benjamin! And while they imagined they had a few more weeks before the baby was born, Preston has reportedly gone into labor!
Travolta, upon learning Preston was starting to go into labor, fired up his personal jet and flew more than 20 hours from Australia back home to the U.S., cutting short a promotional tour down under.
Preston, in keeping with the guidelines of the couple’s Scientology faith, is reportedly prepared to have a silent birth.
She described the quiet 2000 birth of daughter Ella Bleu in one interview as “a peaceful, beautiful entry into this earth,” but admitted there was groaning throughout the 13-hour labor.
Actress and fellow Scientologist Leah Remini told People about the silent birth experience, “I don’t want there to be a misconception that you’re sitting there not grunting or screaming when a child is coming out. It’s pretty painful. You just want to try to have the birth be as pleasant as possible for your baby.”
It’s only a matter of time before we get to set our very own eyes on little Benjamin! Are you excited to see the first photos? Have you experienced a silent birth?
